Today August’s Games with Gold were revealed but we also got another surprise. Some rather popular games are now backward compatible on Xbox One. Larry Hryb, better known as Major Nelson, announced that Red Faction: Armageddon, GYRUSS and Raiden IV will be joining backward compatibility today. Usually we don’t make recommendation for backward compatible games but this time around we have to. All of you need to buy Raider IV right now. It’s one of the best shoot ’em up games ever made and I can’t recommend it enough. If you loved games like Tyrian growing up, this is a must-have title in your collection.

Red Faction: Armageddon is a great action game which might not be that deep, but it’s a lot of fun. GYRUSS is a pretty standard smaller game, nothing too exciting. Lastly, Raiden IV is awesome so you should buy it right now. Even though who don’t own it will enjoy this Xbox 360 game. If you like this one, remember to pick up Raiden V.
