One of the most talked-about features of the Xbox One console is its ability to play games made for Microsoft’s earlier generation console, the Xbox 360. This has been a great feature as it has allowed gamers to replay golden oldies like Red Dead Redemption and Mass Effect.
And Microsoft quietly expanded the Xbox One’s backwards compatibility feature earlier this year and the console is now capable of running some original Xbox games such as Knights of the Old Republic and Psychonauts. And without further ado, here follows a list of the top 5 original Xbox games now playable on the Xbox One (and Xbox One X too).
1. Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic
Plus, as you would expect from any Star Wars game worth its salt, there are plenty of lightsabre battles and laser firefights to enjoy, which are still exciting despite the fact the game features turn-based combat like other early Bioware releases such as Baldur’s Gate 2.
It’s a good thing, then, that this Star Wars RPG is now playable on the Xbox One, allowing gamers to relive a classic of the Xbox generation or perhaps discover for the first time what is arguably the best Star Wars game we have seen to date.
