Get your wallet ready: a huge batch of games just joined the Xbox One Backward Compatibility program, and among them are some of the games fans have been asking for most since the beginning.

It starts off with two entries in the Battlefield series, Battlefield 3 and Battlefield: Bad Company 2. Fans have been clamoring for Battlefield games ever since the program was announced, so these are sure to be an instant buy or instant upgrade.

Then, for fans of RPGs, there’s Dragon Age: Origins, the first (and arguably most beloved) of BioWare’s trilogy. At nearly 6.5 GB, it’s the largest download of the bunch, but it’s on sale for only $15.

The other four games aren’t nearly as popular, but they’re still good options to pick up and play. First, there’s Ghostbusters, the Xbox 360 game based on the popular movie. Scrap Metal, a fast-paced racing game, is up next, followed by goo-based physics puzzler The Splatters. Finally, there’s the robot shoot ’em up with an appeal to ’80s nostalgia, Strania – The Stella Machina.

If you already own these games on the Xbox 360, then you’re good to go go. If not, then most of them can be purchased digitally. The sole exception is Battlefield 3, which requires a disc to run.
