Add Achievements to Original Xbox Games

Add achievements to all the games in the Backward Compatible Game Library, even for the upcoming classics on the original Xbox.
The achievements do increase the replay value of older games in such a big way.

    Xbox you guys should really try to add achievements, because although I can still play an old game, who doesn't like a reward? try your hardest to make this possible...

    this is possible...HOW? You ask...

    X-Men: The Official Game was on Original Xbox...

    Then It was Re Released as an Xbox 360 Game WITH ACHIEVEMENTS....BOOOM.

  • TKFTTKFT commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    No, Achievements are already bad, they're a sign of incompletion, and personally I'd go to having them removed completely. That Gamerscore, and Games 0% are probably what makes me want to quit playing on Xbox Live because I can't obviously 100% all my games.

  • xCrimsonLegendxxCrimsonLegendx commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Not really feasible, Xbox doesn't own all of the games in the back-compat list and it would take an incredible amount of effort to go back and make original achievements for each of these games. Not only would it take an incredible amount of time but the people making the achievements would have to know the games inside and out to make achievements that work, not to mention coding them.

    While this is a good idea and I would like to see it happen, its just not possible.

    They said they're looking into it, but not will require something like a hypervisor and is much more complicated than you think since these are not ports

  • DeadlyName007DeadlyName007 commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    No thank you, we don't need achievements in Xbox Original BC games, as it needs work to do in the binary files of the game and publishers won't make the games BC for that reason, so we will have much less games to the program. Achievements don't matter in gaming.

    The only reason I would play OG Xbox games again would be if they had achievements... Otherwise they will probably just be played for 10 minutes then never again...

  • CalverzCalverz commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    No. Do not add achivements. This means more work for developers/publishers where work wont be wanted. It may actually limit the number of og xbox games released. Just look at ps2 games on ps4. Selection abyssmal and added trophy support is a reason for this. Go get ur dumb achievements elsewhere kid. Nobody over 12 years old gives an f.

  • QuestEnderQuestEnder commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    ....but original xbox games did not have any gamerscore or achievements.

    Good idea though.

    And still can't wait to dust off that oxb collection.

  • THEBAMATTACKTHEBAMATTACK commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    it would take alot of time just to program trophies so it would take longer to release games which leads to complaints

  • ERT XxCLUTCHxM1ERT XxCLUTCHxM1 commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    That would be great, but I think thats impossible; PS4 runs ports while Xbox One will emulate, so I guess it would require a patch just to add achievements

  • IcyKraxIcyKrax commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    I would love to see achievements for original Xbox games, if sony can do it for the ps2 games on ps3 & ps4 then I see no reason why Microsoft can't do it for original Xbox games on Xbox one

  • FIaw3dFIaw3d commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    I'd definitely love to see Xbox Original Games with Achievements, It would have a lot more value to playing the game and earning GS on OX Game's, I'd really like to see this happen it be a huge step forward for microsoft and make Backwards Compatibility much a better feature for Xbox Gamers.

  • MalacathMalacath commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    I voted for it just in case but I don't think it's possible.

    It would probably require the games developers to alter the games code. Something which they are highly unlikely to do.

  • RealRogerWilcoRealRogerWilco commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    I think achievements make it alot more fun to go back and replay these older games. Give us an incentive or we most likely wont play the game for very long. Be great to play these games online again. Even if you opened a server for just a month. Just dont make online achievements unless you plan on keeping the game servers open forever.

  • Ghetto BoxManGhetto BoxMan commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    You are an idiot. MS has no ability to add anything to older games. I feel sorry for you if the only way you will play a game is for the achievements and not the experience. Really it's pathetic.
