5 More Games that Should Be Backwards Compatible on Xbox One

Sonic Generations

With Sonic Forces coming out this year, it would be a smart move by Microsoft to bring the lightning-fast hedgehog to the Xbox One. Considered to be on the very first 'good' Sonic game for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 -- and one of the best 3D iterations of the franchise, having Sonic Generations on the Xbox One would be fantastic. 

SEGA was finally able to pull off a winner with Sonic Generations, a game that effortlessly switched between the classic 2D gameplay of old and the more race-like, 3D levels of Sonic Colors and Sonic Unleashed.

The game's classic Sonic levels reminded us what made us love the little hedgehog in the first place, especially with its excellent speed and platforming. But on the flip side, Generations' modern Sonic managed to redeem himself by re-creating tons of the classic levels in 3D -- and astonishingly, managed not to control like garbage.

The game's exhilarating speed, coupled with its simple control scheme and great level design help Sonic Generations channel the very best of classic Sonic.

Even if Sonic Forces turns out to be bad, the Xbox One should at least have one game where fans enjoy a Sonic game one last time... because it will be light years better than Sonic Boom.
