As long as they don't create a separate Game Pass to include ID@Xbox titles only, we're good to go.
There is always a way.

Can't ever see that happening, the appeal for it being its own problem would be way too small for the general public.

All ID@Xbox titles should come to game pass.
Always number 2.

I'm really glad there's a place to showcase ID@Xbox games.
Whenever Inside Xbox or other announcements quickly name off some of the games and show quick clips with 1.5 seconds of gameplay before going to the next clip, I always want to see more of those smaller games that I wasn't aware about before that moment.

But when I first read the name I was like "a separate Game Pass for small games? Whyyyyy?" dance

Good stuff here, while a lot of the indie games are crap there are some that are just so good and nobody know about them. I hope this helps highlights the good ones gamepass offers.

Side note, I know everyone that works for TA does a lot with the little time they have but the ICYMI articles would be a great way for TA to highlight some indie titles as well.

The ID@Xbox market is not that huge.
And it would create too many spinoffs. A Sports pass, a Family Pass. A Race Pass. Etc etc.

There already is a sports pass, it's called EA access

Not that huge as in there is not enough interest to justify a seperate pass just for those games. It would mean there would be other passes to get along with and out of splitting those you would have to scrap those that are not that popular.......

I’ve really begun to enjoy indie games more and more. So anything that’ll make more of them available to me on my Xbox One I’m happy about :)

Quantity does not replace quality. I personally feel like ID@xbox has Taken something away from the Xbox experience. Remember when they would have summer of arcade and we would get a bunch of high quality games that people were actually excited to play. That’s essentially been replaced with shovel ware garbage that nobody really cares that much about. “Oh look, another NEO GEO game came out, can’t wait for that” said virtually no one ever. In the past we would get Castle Crashers, Turtles in time, magic the gathering, castlevania, among others. Those were high quality games that people actually wanted to play.

Then they go and make these new games worth 1000 gamerscore, because all games deserve 1000 gamerscore. The problem with that is these ID@xbox “games” barely qualify as games. People, especially in this site, only play them for the s ore and then move onto the next awesome experience that ID@xbox can offer you....

I am sure there are some diamonds in the rough and people will most definitely point those out, but your missing the point. When they throw so much rubbish games at us, it takes away from the attention that the actual quality games that come out deserve.

Just the opinion of somebody who tried a few ID@xbox games and would like Microsoft to draw more attention to the higher quality games.

There aren't that many ID games that give easy completions, at least not to the point of being filled with them. Most ID games are actually really hard to 1000G, at least if the ratio is anything to go by.
