Topic: XBox Playable Long Running IPs (or, Xbox has no games myth buster)

Posts 1 to 4 of 4


I dare bet if i googled i would find the answer to this, but I figured I would make a thread instead. I am trying to compile a list of long-running IP games that are available to play on XBox consoles. I want to limit this, though, to a few rules:
1) Every entry in the IP needs to be available on some XBox console (even if its not BC today.) Final Fantasy would not count.
2) It is acceptable if some spin-off isnt available on XBox (if every numbered persona was available, it would not be disqualified for lack of the dancing entries)
3) Exception to rule #1 will be made on a case-to-case basis, mostly on cases of complete paradigm shifts (Fallout would make it because every entry post 3 is a whole different ball game, Similar for Elders Scrolls 3)
4) The IP needs to have at least 3 entries (sorry, Red Dead Redemption not making it.)
5) Remakes count as stand-ins, so Resident Evil makes it thanks to all the remakes!
6) No yearly sports games
7) Entries count even if they can only be purchased now in collections.

I am going to start with a quick list off the top of my head and quick googling, and update it as I think of more, or people point more.

Great list and that probably took alot of time to compile. However I believe when people say Xbox has no games they are talking about exclusives. All those games are great but you can play them on PS as well and even a few on Switch.
