Games That Need Backwards Compatibility For Xbox One

With Xbox's short list of backwards compatible games growing, I can't help but to hope they add some of the classics from the Xbox 360.

With the Bioshock series finally being added to the list of Xbox One backwards compatible games, I'm happy, but not yet satisfied. Here's a list of the games I think need to be added to the backwards compatible list.

Portal 2


Portal is already backwards compatible, so why not add on the award winning sequel? This is one of those games everyone needs to experience, and bringing it to Xbox One will allow even more gamers to do so. As one of my favorite games, it's a shame this game hasn't yet been added.

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim


It's shocking how this game has yet to be put on the list. As one of the most popular games on the Xbox 360, I'm sure many others are also patiently waiting for the medieval RPG to be added.

Dark Souls 2


The games predecessor Dark Souls is on the list, but for those looking to try their hand at Dark Souls 2 they'll have to wait. You can currently purchase an Xbox One addition of the game, but for those who already own it. Unfortunately, it'll probably be a while till Dark Souls 2 is added.

Batman: Arkham Series


Akrham Asylum and Arkham City were some of the best games for the Xbox 360, yet not a single addition to the Batman Arkham series is compatible. It would be nice to give some gamers who've only played Arkham Knight a chance to experience these classics.

With Microsoft continually expanding the list, I wouldn't be surprised to see some of these titles become compatible this summer. For now, there's a decent list, plus the huge Xbox One library of games, so I doubt you'll ever have trouble finding a game to play.
