PSA: You can still view the top games fans would like to see backward compatible on Xbox One


It's not definitive, but it's something to click on

In case you forgot, Microsoft has a big ol' poll that asks its userbase what it wants to see become backward compatible on Xbox One. It's been in operation for a while and just stopped taking active votes, but I've seen the page pop up a few times recently and some of you were in disbelief that it existed -- so here's your reminder.

In the old system Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 leads with nearly 200,000 votes, closely followed by Skyrim and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3. Next up in the below 100,00 club is GTA: San Andreas, then Arkham City.

Before you call bullshit on this whole list, there is definitely some merit to it. Even just recently Dragon Age 2 made it to Xbox One, and that's right up there in the running on the front page of the poll with 32,951 votes. This tool is likely a great barometer for third parties to gauge interest, and it seems to be working, even on a small scale. It's been replaced with "Xbox Ideas," which may or may not add backward votes in.
