Are those Hitmans (Hitmen) games worth playing if my introduction was the new ones on the Xbox One? 

Nah. And I say that as a big fan. Blood Money (which is part 4, with this HD collection containing 2 and 3) added essential quality of life improvements to the controls and menus to make it more approachable. Hitman 1 and 2 on Xbox One went even further. If you loved those, Blood Money is well worth checking out because of some brilliant levels, but it's rough to play compared to the new ones. This HD collection is way rougher even, but if you're curious after Blood Money it could be fun - they also feature some fun levels.

14 years is a weird number to celebrate...

 

 

It’s a weird game to go back to, when there’s 6 arguably superior sequels.

 

They could’ve spent that time making Amped 2 backwards compatible instead...

Anyone know if GTA 4 is any good on BC?

 

Playing it via PC is such a huge ball ache because of the old Games for Windows Live crap and I honestly can't be arsed to faff around fiddling with it, but thought I'd quite like to play it again.

That’s a good question! I keep meaning to try it on my X...

 

edit: I gave it a try. I’d have expected a stable frame rate at least... but no it’s still sluggish and drops frames all over the place. Also I don’t remember graphics being so fuzzy?! It has been a long time since I played it on the 360 though...

@JoeK GTA 4 PC - I *nearly* bought this yesterday! How is it? I was hoping to revisit it in a better res and a smoother framerate. I played the original on PS3.

 

If you like that game, I highly recommend you also have the 1971 movie "The French Connection" playing the whole time on another telly in the background. The stakeout on the deli scene, and even Gene Hackman's apartment complex and a few other bits are faithfully recreated in both geometry and mission design.

GTA IV is the greatest GTA game IMHO, I played and played that game. The online racing was superb too. I love The French Connection as well.

There's some odd decisions for the games that have been put on sale. Like Puzzle Quest in on sale but the second isn't. Mass Effect 2 and 3 are, but 1 isn't. Can't even be that the publisher isn't taking part, because it's fucking Microsoft. It'd be nice to be able to get Lords of Shadow for less than £20 too Konami, you robbing fuckholes.

I picked up Fuel because it was 2 quid and had vaguely decent memories of playing it. Time has not been kind at all. It's the perfect example of making a massive open world for the sake of it and it being boring as fuck to play.

 

a racing game set in a world where, as far as I remember, it was constantly dusk.

 

Admittedly it was post-apocalyptic...
