Game Sharing, and my situation.
I get a LOT of requests for this. Please read!
Regardless of who you are, I will never "game share" with you
. My wife and I both play together quite a lot, but as it's my Xbox, my fibre and my 4K, I buy all the games. Then of course, there's the glut of review software I'm sent, and spare key trading with my review colleague. And the stuff I get from Evolve. And my yearly deal with EA Access, which I know from PMs and emails that some people are irked about because I have no intention of playing any of the sports titles, or Battlefield games, or Need for Speed racers which they want to get their hands on gratis.
I have games on my Xbox, and 'ready to install' which I'll never play on my gaming profile, such as NBA 2K17, because I get them free to review. I redeem the codes, then play them on another profile so I don't destroy my completion ratio any more than I already have. That's one reason I won't share my library with friends nor beggars.
The other reason is because I have no intention of allowing cheap freeloaders to piggyback my collection, whether early access review copies or games bought with my own hard earned cash. I bought my Scorpio-ready 4K setup for my Wife and I to enjoy, not so I could give my software away to a stranger on the internet in exchange for seven COD titles I'm never going to play.
Which brings me to my final point: I will never, ever
share my library with anyone, because I love my wife. I worship her. Whether sharing my Gold subscription to play together on Halo MCC's Action Sack, or seeing her run around the commonwealth with automatron Ada in tow, all I want is for her to be able to relax and play after work. She works bloody hard and deserves it.
So please. The PMs, the DMs, the emails and the embarrassingly congruous XBL messages must stop. If you want to play the games in my collection, get out of your mother's attic, get a fucking job and buy them.
