Red Dead Redemption leads the vote for backward compatibility on Xbox One

Charlie Hall is Polygon’s tabletop editor. In 10-plus years as a journalist & photographer, he has covered simulation, strategy, and spacefaring games, as well as public policy.

During their E3 press conference on Monday, Microsoft executives announced backward compatibility for Xbox 360 games on the Xbox One. Just a few days later, they've opened a page to allow fans to vote on what games they want added to the program.

Leading the pack, with more than 30,000 votes, is open-world western Red Dead Redemption.

While only 18 games are available right now including fan favorites Viva Piñata, Geometry Wars: Retro Evolved 2 and the original Mass Effect, Microsoft has promised 100 titles by this holiday season.

Other titles topping the charts in the fan vote include every single shooter of the previous generation. Also Fallout 3 and BioShock Infinite... which have a bunch of shooting in them as well. More than likely, Microsoft is eager to spread the love around to other genres, so now's your chance to place a vote that just might make a difference in what titles you're able to play.
