Today, Microsoft added five more titles to the list of games that are playable on the Xbox One through the Backward Compatibility program. It used to be a list of Xbox 360 games, but earlier this week, 13 games for the original Xbox were added to it.
The full list now includes 450 titles; it's the latest milestone since July when it reached 400. Here are today's new additions:

In battles set over actual areas in modern metropolitan cities, take flight in one of 8 futuristic aircraft as you help repel these humongous enemies.
