Microsoft has announced that four Xbox One backwards compatible games have been enhanced for the Xbox One X. The 4 games are some of the best game from Valve Corporation; Half Life 2: The Orange Box, Portal: Still Alive, Left 4 Dead, and Left 4 Dead 2.
The games were originally on the Xbox 360, and now come with higher resolution and nine times the pixel count on the Xbox One X. the backward compatibility also means that you can play with the Xbox 360 Discs if you can find one handy, or buy it from the Xbox Store.
The best of the lot is Half-Life 2: the Orange Box which is a collection featuring Half-Life 2 Episodes 1 and 2, Team Fortress 2 and Portal. These classic games were the best games to come out from Valve at the time. Portal is still regarded as the best puzzle game ever made; while many games like Overwatch owe much of their design to Team Fortress 2. In addition, Team Fortress 2 still has an active community to this day. Lastly, let’s not forget about Half-Life 2, which is a landmark first-person shooter which gets more interesting with the progression of episodes.
