In my blog I have a relatively up to date list showing the ta score and the name of the game for each game listed in game pass. It's not entirely exhaustive due to me being in US.

McTennisD's blog post - Game Pass List

Hoping that TA puts a filter under games for game pass
I created a Google Doc with sortable columns for TA score, TA ratio, etc. You can find it here: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1itGm6zOrwcZc28AZ5gX9...

Thank you! I really wish TA would manage this as the region variations on the game pass are frustrating. In the states we have Virtua Fighter 5: showdown

The game selection is terrible. 360 games are only games free with the pass, and Xbox One games you just get a discount with, whats the point.
That's incorrect.

If you cancel the trial do you lose access immediately or will you still have the remainder of the 14 days?

I haven't checked this out yet. Do you get 14 days from when you first start? Or did it start four/five days ago, and I only have 9 or so days left?
There is no "I" in "team." There also isn't a "u," a "we," an "us," or a "them," so who's playing?

I asked this previously but as I see this, it would be ridiculous if your trial is automatically started. Why? Because after 14 days you would be charged for next month. Imagine you are out for whole month and don't know that this kind of subscription was started and you have to pay for it after trial because you couldn't, technically, cancel it. At some point you have to agree to T&C and they cannot accept them on your behalf.

At least I hope so as I haven't started my trial yet.

You still have your 14 days, I took off auto payments straight away and it still gave my end date 14 days in the future.
Happy Gaming

The very first day that the game pass came out I got it but when I tried to download the first BioShock there was no option to install. However with the newest Bioshock there was clearly and install feature that was able to be selected. So as of the first day most of the games you couldn't install to play anyway. Or at least I couldn't figure out how to do it.

I had the same problem with a few of the games in the collection, mainly the 360 titles, but it seems like things have been sorted since then, I think I've got the first BioShock added to my download queue as of a couple of hours ago. So it all seems to be working now.

I'm unable to unlock any of the achevements for Dig Dug while playing on One. Does the Game Pass give you the trial version?

Ah, this is an XBox ONE thing! laugh I don't need one of those till #RDR2 laugh. The article doesn't mention that it's One-only, or that your trial period starts whenever you start it - at least I assume that's the case computefacepalm.

Not sure its monthly cost is great value - most games will take even a jobless bum a month to 100% complete, or a week or two to finish the story. Plus, you will also have upto 4 free Games With Gold games to get through in that month too. Seems you're better off buying a hard copy of 1 or 2 games from eBay for the price of subscription, which you can even sell on after you're finished. wink

I'm keeping track of the cost/value proposition on my blog entries from my own experiences. I'm basing value on the lowest recorded price for each game I play from the library. So far I'm well ahead. I suppose as the value proposition drops, you could always suspend your membership, and rejoin once the library refreshes with some newer titles in the rotation.
We don't stop playing because we get old; we grow old because we stop playing.

There is a free 14-day trial for Game Pass right now.

Does anyone know when that will end?

I don't want to START my trial right now...
But I also don't want to wait so long I miss it..

This is just a guess, but I'm guessing since there's no info on it ending, it just doesn't end. It probably has a two week trial available for anyone not subscribed, just like all other subscription services. So you're most likely safe to hold off. Don't hold me to that though, I have no source to actually back that up. But I can't imagine them not offering a trial indefinitely.
Among the best in my state and the world. I blog about it, and I tweet about things I take interest in: @Cornerscout

Considering what came out of E3 last week, holding off might be the best option, I believe it was something along the lines of the current titles being available until at least November, and the plan being that around 5 new titles will be added to the collection every month. Not a bad little deal really if true.

Mr trial is still accessible a week after it should have ended. Yes I cancelled and no it doesn't appear in my membership tab. :P

It'd take me two weeks to download them.
