Here are some of the best games that people had been requesting to be added for Xbox One backwards compatibility as well as those already added. Xbox One Play Anywhere also launches these 12 awesome titles.

Ever since Microsoft started rolling out the backwards compatible titles from Xbox 360 to the Xbox One, fans of certain games have been hard at work at bringing these titles to the current generation Xbox One.

Now with more than 250 games, Xbox One has already been shaping up as a superior platform in terms of game selection and this is a big thanks to the backwards compatibility.

However, not all titles are worth looking back, so here are some of the most requested and highly revered titles from the previous console:

Alan Wake (83 on Metacritic)

Assassin's Creed II (90 on Metacritic)

Bayonetta (86 on Metacritic)

Deus Ex: Human Revolution (90 on Metacritic)

Fallout 3 and Fallout New Vegas (93 on Metacritic)

All Gears of War (82 - 91 on Metacritic)

Mass Effect (91 on Metacritic)

Portal 1 and 2 (95 on Metacritic)

Red Dead Redemption (95 on Metacritic)

The Witcher: Assassin of Kings (88 on Metacritic)

The most requested titles right now includes games like "Call of Duty: Black Ops 2,"Skyrim," "Modern Warfare 1 - 3" and "GTA IV."

More titles will be added soon, though no announcement have been made yet.

In other news, Polygon reported that Xbox One Play Anywhere officially launches with 12 Xbox One titles that can now be played on Windows 10 PCs.

The games are as follows;

Gears of War 4

Forza Horizon 3


Sea of Thieves

Be sure to take note that these games will only run on with PCs installed with the Windows 10 Anniversary Edition. Both the Xbox One and the Windows versions uses the same save file and shares the same DLC, so purchasing separately is not needed.
