    Add to your Mass Effect, Dead Space, Assassin's Creed. This program sucks!
    Just because the game you want wasn't made, or added doesn't mean something sucks. You guys have got to start realizing gaming isn't for you, it's for hundreds of millions of people. They don't make games to appease ONE customer, they make them to appease many.
    It was a joke, because people always complain about not getting good games so we listed a bunch of series that are in BC (except Forza and GTA). Don't get your panties in a bunch.
    Really not a good joke. With all the complaining about this program how are we supposed to know you're not just another person crying that their favorite game wasn't added this time?

    Jokes are always going over peoples heads on this topic in particular; although to be honest it sometimes is hard to tell the jokers from the serious angry man that yells at clouds.

    I've also not heard of any of these titles; the games that come back compat often remind me of how huge the catalogue of games is. My gaming time is very limited so I often don't have time to delve into the selection.

    Second this notion - perhaps the best BC in this batch :) (to have BC not necessarily the game itself).
    Fear is the mindkiller.

    Probably because it started with "no triple-A games", and then we listed 5 triple-A games in the program wink

    MORE SONIC!
    FINALLY!

    Still not Sonic Adventure 1&2, BUT MORE SONIC!
    If it works, it isn't stupid.

    Installing now. Only complaint I have is the naming of both episode I and II of Sonic 4. Episode I has 'the Hedgehog' in it, whereas episode II is just Sonic 4. Throws out the alphabetisation and order of the games... :(

    literally the only games I'm waiting for to be Back compat are Soul Calibur IV and V, everytime I get my hopes up, just so they can smack 'em back down cry
    I imagine it'll happen eventually, since the first two Soul Calibur games are BC.

    I would rather have Saint's Row 2 and The Chronicles of Riddick: Assault on Dark Athena than these.
    Those would be nice additions.

    I think you're confusing the US constitution that is for free speech with the US Government that prefers political correctness. laugh

    Appease those 167 people who've played Fret Nice.
    Are you really gonna tell me you're one of those guys that things the people on this site are the only people that play Xbox?
    167 out of 322,308 users on a site dedicated to gaming, that's 0.05% of people who are part of a community who are more generally aware of releases.
    If you scale it to Xbox live users about 48 million that gives just under 2.5million potential players which is overly generous.
    1,349 people have rated it which means that assuming 2.5million people have played it then 0.05% of them rated it as well. That seems like a very small demographic to put effort into, on what appears to be a very shitty little game.
    Some pretty decent other titles though. Keep em coming Microsoft, Blue Dragon cough cough!
