Red Dead Redemption is the Most Wanted Game for Backwards Compatability

Red Dead Redemption is topping the list of Xbox 360 games that Microsoft wants to bring back for the Xbox One.

Microsoft recently announced that their Xbox One now supports backwards compatibility, finally answering the cries of fans from around the world. During their E3 press conference, Microsoft declared the backwards support of Xbox 360 games, and a few days later they opened a poll for which 360 games fans want to see first on the Xbox One. For now, Red Dead Redemption is leading the list with more than 34,000 votes.

Red Dead Redemption was one of the most highly regarded games of the last generation, so it is no surprise to see fans want it back for another experience. Rockstar's western shooter received a 95/100 on Metacritic, and holds the title of being called one of the best open world games ever made. 

Although only 18 games are available for backwards compatibility right now, Microsoft has promised to bring out 100 playable Xbox 360 titles to the Xbox One by the end of the year. One of those 18 playable games now include the original Mass Effect.

Other games on the list include Fallout 3, Halo: Reach, Bioshock Infinite, Batman Arkham City, and Call of Duty: Black Ops 2. Anyone can vote on their favorite games, so get out there and make your voice heard!
