These are the most requested Xbox 360 games for backwards compatibility

Red Dead Redemption leads the pack.

When Microsoft announced that it would be bringing backwards compatibility to Xbox One for Xbox 360 games, it resulted in perhaps the biggest applause at this year's E3. But there were naturally questions about this grand reveal: Notably which Xbox 360 games would be compatible with its successor?

Microsoft asked folks to vote on this as it rolls out the program that will eventually support hundreds of titles from yesteryear. While a small list of titles have already been confirmed to receive this treatment come autumn, many of the most popular Xbox 360 games didn't make the cut. Of those left out (so far), the most popular picks as of now include:

  1. Red Dead Redemption
  2. Call of Duty: Black Ops 2
  3. Skyrim
  4. Halo: Reach
  5. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2
  6. Gears of War 3
  7. Call of Duty: Black Ops
  8. Fallout 3
  9. Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare
  10. Mass Effect 3
  11. BioShock Infinite
  12. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3
  13. Fallout: New Vegas
  14. Mass Effect 2
  15. Gears of War 2
  16. Call of Duty: World at War
  17. Left 4 Dead 2
  18. GTA 4
  19. Halo Wars
  20. Batman: Arkham City

And just to be comprehensive, the already revealed backwards compatible title include:

  • Banjo Kazooie: Nuts and Bolts
  • Banjo-Kazooie
  • Banjo-Tooie
  • BattleBlock Theater
  • Defense Grid
  • Geometry Wars Evolved
