Man I can't wait for Crusader Kings 3...
RFD is love. RFD is life. I wish I had an RFDer for a wife.

4 Months? That sucks. That's really not enough time to enjoy RDR2 unless you're playing it for hours a day.

I totally missed Metal Gear on Game Access (my favourite game series)
What happens to downloaded games once its removed from GA? Cease to be playable?

I downloaded dozens of "free monthly" games where they are still accessible so just wondering if it still applies to GA.

Wow, those agreements between MS and Rockstar certainly were short-term...both GTA V and RDR2 seemed like huge additions at the time, but both came and went pretty quickly.

M$ is rich as fxxk right now, they only want to show off their technology and promote Xbox Game Pass. Many people don't even know Game Pass exists.
and yeah, MSFS it is the most amazing experience I had in years. Strongly recommend it to anyone with a computer that can run it, it blows my mind.

Those free monthly games are yours to keep (assuming you keep Xbox Live - or only get the 360 games). This is why you would be able to continue to play them. When a game leaves gamepass, you will need to then purchase the game to continue to play.

It's done that way so that they can get the clout of being able to say they offer those triple A games and to pull in more subs. Probably negotiated a low payout hence the short time on XBOX Game Pass
