Just one round of Left 4 Dead couldn’t hurt…
Can we just take a moment to appreciate how incredible The Orange Box was? The bundle brought Half-Life 2, Team Fortress 2, and Portal to a lot of households that might not have otherwise played all three games. I never did send the garden gnome into space, but boy did I love this compilation.
The Orange Box is ever-so-briefly in the headlines again because it’s now sporting Xbox One X enhancements along with Portal: Still Alive, Left 4 Dead, and Left 4 Dead 2. As of today, these Xbox 360 titles can “run at a higher resolution and 9X the original pixel count” when played on Xbox One X.
With this update, there are now 21 different Xbox One X Enhanced Xbox 360 games. That’s only a fraction of the overall backward-compatible list, but kudos to Microsoft for sticking with it.
