I have a suggestion for an addition to the BC list: America's Army, Rise of a Soldier.
This is a Ubisoft title and a pretty fun single player take on the classic multi-player FPS; this game also has an interesting RPG-like skill system

I'm currently playing Sonic All stars racing transformed and it's so cool super fun and lots of items and stuff to unlock!!

@StrangeBit It's definitely the best Sonic racing game ever made in my opinion. Like you said there's a lot of variety and things to unlock along with so many SEGA's franchises showing up. Too bad though that the recent Team Sonic Racing wasn't as ambitious as Transformed.

Agree on Sonic Racing Transformed, it’s a really great game. I love that it branches way out of the Sonic Universe, things like the Golden Axe, Jet Set Radio and House of the Dead levels are brilliant.

What are the best Sonic BC games? I've only played the two Sonic Adventures but I know there are lots of 3D Sonic games in 360!
After Sonic Transformed I'm in full SEGA mode XD

@StrangeBit The best one on 360 is definitely Sonic Generations. It brings the best of both 2D and 3D Sonic together for a great experience.

Sonic Unleashed is a good one if you only count the daytime stages, i.e. when you play as normal Sonic and run through the levels very fast. The gimmick with this game though is the nighttime stages where you become a werewolf and instead of running, you're fighting off enemies like a 3D brawler. People don't like this aspect that much, but I wasn't bothered by it at all. The levels can just feel too long compared to the daytime stages. So keep that in mind if you want to play through this game as well.

@LtSarge oh thank you for the explanation! I'll add Generation to my wishlist for sure!

So since this is a rather specific question, I thought about putting it here.

I have the Fallout 3 GOTY Edition on 360 that comes with two discs, one for the base game and one for the DLCs. I've managed to install the full game on my Xbox One from disc 1, but I cannot do anything with disc 2. I've looked up this issue and one of the two common answers seems to be to install the game from disc 1 and then keep disc 2 in the disc drive while playing the game in order to access the DLCs. This doesn't work for me.The second answer is to just install disc 2 since it apparently comes with both the full game and all DLCs, but I cannot access disc 2 on its own at all. It just says that the content is not readable, I cannot do anything with it.

So has anyone tried installing the GOTY Edition of Fallout 3 on Xbox One and has it worked out for you or not? And if it did, how did you do it? Otherwise the only solution I can think of is to simply play the game on 360 but I just prefer to play everything on my Xbox One nowadays.

@Kefka2589 I'm fairly certain that I've already tried that and the DLCs just showed up with normal prices. But I'll give it another try tonight and see if it works.

Currently playing Gears of War 3 for the first time... How did I not do it sooner!!!

I knew it was coming, but THAT scene still gave me goosebumps.

I'm in Act IV and really pleased with this campaign so far. One nitpick I guess I could say is that Baird's comic relief in the earlier acts just doesn't hit, it feels dated and a product of 2011 for sure haha. Similar to the humor in Borderlands 2, but not quite so jading.

@LeanerFasterStronger Glad to hear you're enjoying the game! I still think that Gears 3 is the best one in the series. The campaign was just so good!

Out of curiosity, are you discovering old Xbox games for the first time now or is it just a couple of series that you missed out on? Because I'm in a situation where I have so many franchises on Xbox that I still need to check out, such as the Fable series, and I'm hoping that I can get through them soon since there are most likely some great games there that just aren't talked about that much anymore. I'm actually playing through Far Cry Evolution on 360 now and it's so much fun. I'm hoping to finish it in a couple of days and start up Far Cry 2 since I'm still relatively new to this series and the early games seemed like fantastic titles.

Thanks friend! I've been in the Xbox ecosystem for quite a long time now, since about 2005. It's just for some reason, I never got around to Gears of War 3. Perhaps it was because I was completely enamored with Fallout New Vegas in 2011. Skyrim came out around that time too, and while I didn't like it as much as Oblivion, it certainly had my attention. But I'm very pleased I've remedied this.

That's great you're experiencing some of the best Xbox franchises as well! It's a wonderful time to do so, especially considering that with the backward compatibility program playing 360 games on newer consoles often provides the definitive experience. Hell, Gears 3 will output at 4k and locked frame rates on the One X. The same can be said for many other 360 games.
