Yes people can now boost this with ease especially since it has a 16 player achievement which shouldn’t faze any of you because it’s easy now with it being backwards compatible and free with gold.
I already got War Party taken care of a while ago. It's just down to Ranks, Revives and Field Manuals for me.

Will likely play Celeste and just add the others to make me feel good about how many games I have, but will never play. :)

If all they could get was old Tomb Raider games why not get Legend instead of repeating GoL? It hasn't been offered and it has overpriced DLC win win.... I feel like MS has already checked out of the 360 titles knowing Sony will no longer be competing in that area, not that the selection has been that great for the longest time.

A surprise to see Celeste, but a welcome one. I'll definitely be grabbing that.

I also need to finish Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light with a partner. I was able to dual box most of the co-op achievments, but one of them is a pain in the ass to do alone.
See You Space Cowboy...

Nice. I enjoy the WRC games, and I am curious about FC2.

Well look on the bright side, atleast you didnt pay full price from it like some Battlefield V players and then the price got cut in half :D

i'll enjoy WRC6 for sure. since they are now repeating GWG titles, just stop offering 360 games and go all XBONE!!

Per-XboxOne I may have missed a few games with gold titles due to no space on my 360 or wasn't interested in the game (at the time). If they start sprinkling in 360 titles every now and then for a 2nd time it's not the worst thing in the world. It helps people like me, or possibly some newer gamers who were not on the network at that time.

To criticize this (first time since 2014?) would be like criticizing the entire GWG program because you buy all games instantly and complain because "you already had all 4 games" each month. As my co-worker says "first world problems".

Is this the first time a game has been games with gold twice?
PunkyLiar doing the research like compute

I'm sure a few of us are really curious on that.
Someone knows me a bit too well.

In the early days of the program on Xbox One, some titles were offered over multiple months -- Max: The Curse of Brotherhood, Crimson Dragon, and Pool Nation FX -- but these weren't repeats, just that they had longer periods in the program than what is now a more common period of a month.

There has also been cases of a game being offered on Xbox One during one period of time and on Xbox 360 during another. Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes and Castlestorm spring to mind. There was also the month that The Walking Dead was offered on both Xbox One and Xbox 360 simultaneously. Technically these aren't repeats either, although some would disagree.

Some regions have seen repeat titles before. Regions like Australia, Japan and Germany don't always have access to the listed game due to certification issues or something similar that means the game isn't available on their Store. As such, they get replacements, and over the years, some of those replacements have been repeat titles. For instance, Max: The Curse of Brotherhood and Kalimba have both popped up in these regions more than once.

However, for regions like America and the majority of Europe where availability isn't usually an issue, this is indeed the first time a game has been offered on multiple occasions on the same platform.
HolyHalfDead's blog post - Games with Gold

In January 2018 Tomb Raider: Underworld was a repeat from January 2014

Here’s a few more I’m sure some people missed, and so wouldn’t mind them repeating:
Resident Evil Code: Veronica X HD
Shadowrun
Lost Planet 2
Dead Island Riptide (Xbox 360)
Halo Wars
Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts
He's not a man. He's the holy Half-Dead who has seen the Underverse and returned with powers you can't imagine.

Pretty meh month for me. Might try Celeste at some point.

Seems like the 360 GWG is slowly dying. 1st an OG game and then a repeat the next month.

I have no problems with repeats but give them as an extra for the “new” gold subs on top of the fresh ones. Everybody happy then and it is not that they give away a full priced game.
