At the point where I just collect them now without even looking at the titles.

Game Pass has eaten their lunch for sure.

BUT free is free! *cue argument over actually being free*

There's rumors they may just phase out games with gold in favour of game pass. Would really like them to drop some quality AAA games for the last few months if that is true, but the recent months' games don't really indicate that is gonna happen.

they'll probably just roll gold into a lower game pass tier and call it game pass basic or something: online play and these old games. there are still people who just want to play online with their purchased games.

At this point we should just stop posting and discussing GWG because it's obvious and everyone knows that the real deal and value for games is in Game Pass. Gold is nothing more than an online access fee with some throwaway games so if you don't play online just stop paying for it and stick to Game Pass for the best deal on games. If you already upgraded your Gold to Ultimate for $1 then there's literally nothing to complain about or discuss.

Crap month and laughable free games (First gen Xbox games? Really?)

But I have a huge backlog of games anyways and I think most smart RFDers got in on the many Gamepass deals.

Well, we can't always win. And to be fair, I keep adding them to my library but I can't remember the last time I played and finished a Games with Gold game.

It's mostly just shovelware titles and about 4-5 times a year we get a AAA game that you'd actually want.

Game Pass will take over, it allows them to bill more but I'm more curious about xCloud. xCloud + Game Pass on an cheaper XBox next gen is a very very attractive option, like everyone hopes it could be a Stadia killer. Stadia has best tech but no games, but if XBox can match the performance and ease of Stadia, XBox has the library to make it worth paying $15 a month for.

Digging out subpar Xbox first gen games feels like digging bottom of the barrel. GWG is done.

Yeah I wouldn't count on them getting any better. When Sony decided to get rid of ps3/vita games, the last year was dreadful for those titles. They had one great final month where we got Metal Gear Solid 4 and other good things, but otherwise, it was intentionally slim pickings.

I doubt MS has different thinking when it comes to Gold. The best way to keep people from missing something is to make it horrible before you let it die.

It's not a rumour. They said it will be phased out at the Xbox showcase

MS should just eat gold and make online free. Everyone who has gold has game pass at this point. It would be marketing genius for them to say online is free on xbox consoles.

I’m not one to usually complain about these free offerings but they’ve been quite poor lately. I agree with everyone else that they should just make live free and charge for game pass.

I am not a Xbox consumer (well had a Xbox 360). I hope they are doing something better, so they are forcing Sony's hand for competition. This is just sad and sooner or later Sony will follow.

Complain about this all you like, but game pass is far and away the best gaming subscription service on the market right now.
