Looks like Phil thinks that Game Pass will have a positive impact on single player games.
Phil Spencer: The number of single-player games being built has gone down as an overall percentage of the games being built. I say that and people throw Sony's first-party at me or something, and they've done a great job building single-player games. It's not really about that. I see all of the games all of the publishers are building. I have - not because I'm smart - I have insight into what's coming and what the publishers are thinking. The thing I saw a couple of years ago was, everybody is kind of chasing this perpetual, how do I keep everybody into all of my franchises all of the time? This is when I said, Game Pass can actually enable great single-player games and stories to be told.
There was a little bit of conflict when I said that. But it was nice to see something like Outer Worlds. Yes, it's from one of our studios, but to boot that game and know that if I want to be done in 20 hours from now I can be. And if I want to play it for longer I can. There are certain games where that's what they should be, and I love that.

Creature in the Well for me. It's a top down hack n slash type game, but set in a pinball style world if that makes sense? There aren't any enemies to attack but energy orbs that you can charge up and then hit at bumpers.Also, if anyone finds some unknown gems on GP, please post some impressions here
You're a psychopath if you find this game relaxing. While it may be the most relaxing looking and sounding game, the gameplay stresses me out beyond belief. Find myself constantly saying some choice four to five letter words.It’s one game I play just to relive some mental stress, like playing Tetris effect
