Call me an ungrateful hater if you want, but this month sucks too! At this rate, the only way that GwG will benefit me is if I just stop buying games. Every month, for the most part, it's either a game that the majority of the gaming population already has or it's a 3-5 year old game or some indie game that I don't care about. I might as well stop buying TWD games because season 1 was a previous GwG & now season 2 will be next month's GwG. Ryse is a good game, but I already have it and it should've been a GwG freebie a long time ago. Maybe it's just me, but getting a free game via GwG that I can find for $10 or under at a bargain bin of some sort or from someone's clearance section isn't enough to get me excited. It's almost as if GwG primarily benefits people that just got an Xbox a year or so ago and, as a result of that, don't have a lot of games played. A lot of people may say that this is a great month for GwG, but just like the previous "great" months for GwG, I'd already have 3 of the 4 if not all 4 of the games offered. I don't know. Maybe it's just me and my ole opinion. Though, it'll be said that I should be happy and that I'm being ridiculous for complaining about free games. For any incoming backlash, I say, "Whatever!" Fire away! laugh
I own much more X1 games and there are still plenty non-indie games that I don't own. Looking at the past 12 months:

Ryse, Evolve, Murdered: Soul Suspect, The Crew, WWE2k16, Warriors Orochi 3 Ultimate

vs. games I already owned:

Project CARS, Sleeping Dogs Definitive Edition

Including indies, out of the past 24 X1 games (12 months) there were only 4 I already owned. Maybe you're just buying the wrong games. For example as you mentioned, games by Telltale have a high probability of becoming GwG titles. Still bought TWD Michonne when it was on sale and yes TWD Season 3 WILL be GwG in about 2 years or so.

The month IS objectively great, no matter how many games you already own from those 4.

How much is a game supposed to be worth to be included in the service? You're complaining about one game that is still $10 at retail. You're paying $5 a month, if you're smart it's closer to $3. How's that not worth it, especially when there's not one but four games. Even if there's only one you're interested in, it's already worth it.

Solid month for GWG. I own all four lol, but they are great games. Maybe I can make a few bucks on Ebay or something selling my physical copies lol.

Got all four for PC... however, I really want to see Quake II for X360 on BC mainly due to achievements which PC version does not have to this date. Quake II was sold with original 360 release of Quake 4 on a bonus disc.

Nice! I can finish the Ryse DLC now and I am super stoked for twd S2, as I really enjoyed the first season. Great month for GWG.

Well should have seen the Darksiders and AC Revelations coming since I got a mail yesterday saying they were now backwards compatible :D

Meh...... might do Ryse someday IF it includes the dlc. If not, it's a pass. The rest are a hard pass since I already did TWD.
