Microsoft's Xbox One has had a stellar release slate over the last few months, packed with exclusive games like Rise of the Tomb Raider and multiplatform hits such as Fallout 4 and Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain. Still not satisfied? Well, there's now an additional 16 games from the Xbox 360 era that you can play on your Xbox One via backwards compatibility. Some of the highlights include the head-scratching puzzle-platformer Braid, indie darling Spelunky, Portal and Fable 3.

There's also Halo: Reach, which, alongside The Master Chief Collection and Halo 5: Guardians, means that every mainline Halo game is now playable on the Xbox One. If the latest effort from 343 Industries has you feeling bummed, perhaps Bungie's swansong can fill you with festive cheer?

Oh, and if you need a reminder, here's a quick video explaining how backwards compatibility works on the Xbox One:
