Looking Back On Backward Compatibility: Remembering Games Played On Systems They Weren't Made For

While backward compatibility is easy to dismiss towards the end of a system's lifespan, it can be an essential piece of the puzzle when a system is young. Looking back, we owe some of my fondest gaming experiences to backward compatibility. (3DS, Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance, GameCube, Ghost Trick: Phantom Detective, Nintendo DS, Pokemon Blue, Pokemon Red, PS2, PS4, Retro, The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening DX, Wii, Xbox One)

ive always looked at backwards compatiblity more as an insurance. you know that you will be able to play all the games you invested in on the system on a future system even if your current system breaks down.
