....and I'm surprised how well Skyrim holds up graphically.....the snowy areas in particular look better to me in this than the Special Edition.

360 Skyrim holds its own and has aged fine enough........

Would love to see it backwards comp so I can continue my game on Xbox one because my 360 shuts off on its own sometimes....

Also fired up Metro last Light, GTA 5, Halo 4 and BioShock Infinite....devs truly worked magic on these old consoles at the end of their life.........

Great console....

the other week i went from playing Rise of the Tomb Raider (2015) to Condemned: Criminal Origins demo (2005). it was stunning to see how far graphics came from the beginning to the end.

Skyrim Remaster is still only getting discounted down to $30 during sales, so i don't see Betheseda giving the okay to make Skyrim x360 BC anytime soon (if ever)
nyuuuuuuuuu~

The notion that games from the last gen have already aged to the point people are seriously discussing whether they have "held up" is absolutely outrageous, and flat out f***ing stupid.

Some of them have aged graphically. If you haven't thought so that way then you are still stuck in last gen or you need your eyes checked out.

Last gen started over ten years ago...it'd be pretty sad if graphics barely got any better in all that time.

Not if youve been gaming for decades. Mid life graphics of last gen is good enough for me for the rest of my days honestly.

Condemned was one of the prettiest launch titles on the Xbox 360, you could compare RoTR to King Kong for a more accurate comparison.

No. They may not look as good as what curren gen is producing, but only ones that had poor graphics to begin with will look "aged" or anything similar.

Yes, but Rise of the Tomb Raider was one of the prettiest for 2015 era so it works.
