    Not sure if you're joking ... but if you're not:

    Games page - Platform = Xbox 360 and XBL - Other filters: BC
    Sort by ratio ascending, bazinga!

    Easiest three BC games:
    Sonic the Fighters
    Altered Beast
    Virtua Fighter 5 Final Showdown

    Is it possible to include a count of the total BC games in the full list? Just at the bottom I mean, I'm curious to know what the full total is now.
    It's not specifically what you're asking, but recently Major Nelson tweeted that the list went over 250.
    According to wiki its now 270 :)
    TA is now tracking exactly 278 smile
    Here comes fresh fire ...

    They mean Xbox One and BC, as in, a way to show every game you can play on your One.

    Just completed Eat Lead a few weeks ago, as a FPS addict it was nice to play a game(yes I know it's 3rd person) that pokes fun at popular shooters, the levels with 2D Doom/Wolfenstien looking enemies was really fun.

    Welcome! smile I really enjoy Silent Hill 2 and 3, which are found in Silent Hill HD Collection, but you might find them a tad dated if you didn't get the pleasure of playing them back when they were new.

    Edit: I also just considered that you might only own an Xbox One, so sadly right now the only Silent Hill game you'd be able to access is Downpour.

    Wow, so it's too much effort to open a second tab with XO games? Lazy bums!

    I loved Silent Hill Downpour until it crashed at the same point repeatedly, even with new copies.

    So the only good game released this week is the XBL Arcade title eh? Weird but happy to have the first Puzzle Quest to play. Silent Hill Downpour was seemingly an experiment in taking the worst elements of SH: Origins and Shattered Memories and making a horrible baby with terrible achievements. Eat Lead was a joke that went on for too damn long. That should have been an XBLA game. A few hours? Sure. But it was waaaay too long.
    Looking to boost any MP achievements I don't have for any game I own.
