I hate Game Pass. I don't have enough time to play the games I was buying individually, now they're just falling into my lap in heaps. It's a tough life...

Seriously though, how the fuck do I play through 1/10th of this? I still have games with gold dating back to the X360 that "I'll play next".

Hehe first world problems.
At this point with xbone, ps4 and pc and a ridiculous backlog I'm very picky with what I play. If after an hour it doesn't hook me I drop it and move on.
I had to change my thinking that I had to finish games for the sake of finishing them where now I play games because I enjoy them.
Gamepass has saved me a lot of time and money dropping games that I just don't enjoy enough to complete

I don't understand how Microsoft isn't losing money over this to be honest. I've never paid full price for Game Pass, but the amount of gaming I've got out if it is incredible. Having Microsoft releases on GP on day 1 is incredible.

So is the PC version just not that good yet? I had to first update my computer which I had issues with. Then the computer worked fine but the MS store wouldn't connect to the internet which took awhile to troubleshoot. When I finally got it all set up the game encountered an error 1 minute into downloading. Then again after continuing and once again after that. I just turned my Xbox on for the first time in forever and downloaded the game after that.

I am a PS fanboy only had my Xbox x for a year, I love Sony because it had the great games I wanted to play....

Game pass is changing everything. So many great games I was waiting to go on sale for Sony show up in my GP que. PS4 is starting to collect dust.

I would have never bought just cause 4 but tried it in GP and am having a blast!

Play slay the spire you have not

So glad Kingdom Come Deliverance is coming for Game Pass. Been wanting to play this game for ages but not sure if PC can run it nor if I'd like it. Now I get to find out.

Really, huh. I was considering buying the Humble Monthly but I figured the game might end up on Game Pass pretty soon.

No DmC for PC though 😒

Slay the Spire is a lot of fun. Better suited for a portable system though.

my PS4 has also seen little use since I dubbed to Gamepass.

Lol, yeah i am actually jealous despite being skeptical at first, but i’d play a bunch of those,games. Still cant bring myself to buy another console, another online sub, and GP... But next nov will be a reset...if sony has no answer i’ll gladly give up their first party stuff to play games like slay the spire and stellaris for extra $5/mo.

I can't believe it. It's reached the point where I don't even buy games I would normally have bought because there's a high chance they might end up on game pass very soon and I have so much from game pass to play in the meantime anyway.
I don't know what xbox games are still worth buying outright if you have GP ultimate. It costs close to nothing, it gives you an ever stretching backlog and you can play the best games the platform has to offer days before they release. Why would I fork out any money for any xbox games at a game shop ever again? The only ones I still buy are PS exclusives and VR games because there's no other way of getting to play them.
Don't get me wrong, I'm not complaining, my only point is to say that I hope all this doesn't only benefit Sony and Nntendo as far as actual game sales.

Clearly "Xbox" is becoming their service brand. I would put money on it that they no longer produce consoles which process graphics natively after this next generation. Micro(soft) has always been concerned with providing the software and letting others develop the hardware to run it. This is a great move in my opinion and is clearly only getting better each month. They practically monopolize the PC market, so if they can provide this service for $14.99 a month, then "Xbox" will become synonymous with "The Netflix for Games" in the 2020's.

Oh I remember the good ol' days I used to send DVD's in the mail to get a new one... that's where we are with currently downloading games. Only a matter of time folks until the ISP's catch up to MS vision

Game Pass is awesome. The first step of all this was the Play Anywhere stuff with crossplay, then Game Pass console, now we're on Game Pass Ultimate for console+PC. Next step is XCloud that should open some more cool cross-platform functionality. Essentially, Xbox will become more synonymous with Game Pass than it's console hardware.

I've been loving the Phil Spencer vision for Xbox. The value and versatility has been amazing for my family. We get Gears, Forza, Halo, SoT. Plus stuff like DMC V, KCD, Metro Exodus, Shadow of War, piles of indies and BC titles.

Sorry. Guys, like...I'm really concerned about MS. They've been selling their games...for $2. Game Pass might be...the end for them.

Dirt Rally is pretty tough to just pick up, isn't it?
I didn't have time to dig in, but I went from FH4 to Dirt Rally and I was all over the place. :messenger_tongue:

Pisses me off. Dirt Rally was only possible because of the PC crowd funding the early access and now the sequel on GP is console only.

Show some fucking love.

I was vocal about Dirt Rally 2.0 not coming to PC and then it did.

Wow its garbage compared to the first one. Theyve taken all the difficulty and fear out of it and made Sega Rally.
