Is anybody else tired of seeing Xbox make pointless games backwards compatible? The recent games they've decided to make backwards compatible have been all awful choices.

Why do they let us vote on which game we'd like to be made backwards compatible if they're just going to pick and choose as they please? It seems like they just let people vote to let us have some dreams to be immediately crushed by games like "Epic Mickey 2" or "Sega Vintage Collection: ToeJam and Earl" becoming backwards compatible.

Most of the games that have been made backwards compatible, with VERY few exceptions, seem to be games that never got a lot of popularity when released. Xbox is constantly adding useless and pointless games to backwards compatibility instead of adding games that people would actually like to get. Does anybody else see what Xbox is doing? Sorry for the rant, had to get it off my chest.

But if you think about it, popular games (like MW2 or MW3) which have been voted in favor of becoming backwards compatible would make more money for Xbox, no?

I would say there are a number of reasons. They probably want to know which titles people want, but they also have to get permission from the company that owns the game. Some companies may not want to do it due to not wanting to kill the game they have out at that time, want people to forget about the old titles so they can solely focus on newer titles, or just waiting until they can make a remastered version of it for more profit. I think the majority of the backwards compatible games are those that may need the extra help of getting sales or those the company feels won't threaten potential future profit. I'm waiting on DOA 4 personally, but I don't think it is happening. It sucks, but I get it.

the developers of the game choose what gets bc'd not microsoft. so supposedly all the good games youre begging for bc'd that aren't happening are because of the devs. gg.

I wouldn't say Microsoft is just pushing out "pointless" games, they put out the games for a reason.
