    Best part of GWG, free games, even if I don't end up playing them. they are all free so I don't feel bad if I don't. I have downloaded almost every one, minus a few months where I couldn't, and have played maybe a 3rd. But I didn't pay a dime for the 2/3 that I didn't play so who cares? Enjoy the program for what it is, there was a time where your $60/year didn't get you anything in return other than playing online. Just be grateful people.

    I love GWG. I'll get a good month here or there and get a game I want to play, but more than once I've just grabbed them anyways, and when I was sharing my console my roomate's kid got to play all kinds of stuff.

    I feel bad for the people who bought Sonic Generations when it was on sale last week hahacry. Decent lineup though. Nice to have another telltale game on my backlog for when I need to grind out an easy 1k!

    I fancy Castlevania but the achievements look annoying
    If you are a completionist, they are. I'd say they are overall MUCH easier than LoS1 or Mirror of Fate, and you'll get 80% or so normally. The Kleidos challenges are INSANE, though. And you have a crapton of collectibles. DLC is meh.
    State of the badass art.

    Haven’t tried any of these apart from Castlevania so I’m excited about this news. Although lords of shadow 2 was difficult to get into, I normally don’t get over critical about storylines but from what I remember the first L.O.S. was great and the 2nd was meh.
    It's...kind of a tough sell. I won't spoil for those that haven't jumped in but the main protagonist has some pretty hefty issues that make him very difficult to identify with. Overall, it gets to a decent place by the time the end roles along, with a couple of good twists...and the music is still fantastic.

    I wasn't super crazy about the Quake 2 looking alt-future, but I really liked the large "3D Metroidvania" map, opposed to the short mini-levels of the original.

    Some games are guaranteed to come to GwG - Assassins Creed, Forza, LEGO and Telltale. Having never bought a Telltale game, I am keen to play the Batman games.

    The trend will continue of GwG getting ex-GamePass games (so long as GwG continues).
    Really enjoyed The Enemy Within.

    I got excited when I saw Shantae, I started the game recently and its fantastic. I've got the original (Half-Genie Hero) game, was excited to think GwG was giving me the Ultimate Edition... but now Im not so sure.

    Seems obvious they're giving the original (HGH) game away for free to try and scum money off the DLC when the Ultimate version has been out for a while (and on Game Pass too if I remember right). Would have double-up'd and played both original + ultimate for the extra achievement set, but looks like I wont.

    I mean, that's kind of the appeal to publishers for any of their games with DLC on GwG, and it's probably even a benefit Microsoft advertises to them. It's not exactly a secret, and there's nothing wrong with it. You give things away cheap or free to encourage other sales. Hell, our consoles themselves barely make Microsoft, Sony, or Nintendo any money.

    Looking forward to Batman -- I was going to rush through it on xCloud since it's on there but not on Game Pass, and I wasn't sure how long it would be available. Makes me wonder if other games currently exclusive to xCloud will come to Game Pass or GWG (Ace Combat 7, DayZ, etc)...
