Remote installing XV on my PC now. There is way too much to play in GP.
Wow, this game plays like ass on PC. Bonus demerits for it showing me mouse click prompts when I'm using the controller and having no way to change it that I can find.

I tried that one out, but honestly it just seemed overwhelming lol. I really dug the first one (Shadow of Mordor), but just couldn't get into the second. This is the exact scenario why Game Pass rules.

I never played Shadow of Mordor figured I would give the new one a shot. I’m sure I’ll get my fill sooner or later and move on to something else on GamePass.

Cool! I've nearly pulled the trigger on kingdom hearts a few times on sale but didn't because of my backlog, too late now it's gonna get much bigger.

Nice! Have to say I LOOOOVE Gamepass. Way too many games to play which is a blessing and a curse....trying to get through the backlog and then I start a game just because it catches my eye or it's part of a Gamepass quest. I started Sniper Elite 4 for a Gamepass quest and damn I'm having a good time with it. It's like Zombie Army but without the Zombies....so a bit more strategic planning of each area/level...or not if you like the brute force approach :). Going to finish it out backlog be damned!

I’ve just come to terms that yes Children of Morta can be a grind at times, but It’s such a great game that keeps me coming back even when I get frustrated. I just play it when I don’t feel like playing any MP shooters or big games or if I got an hour or less and want to get a quick run in. I finally got to and beat the 3rd boss now I’m starting the 2nd portal. When it leaves Game Pass I’m sure I’ll be buying it.

I haven’t played NBA 2K in years will definitely check that out. I loved playing the My Player mode on the older games.
I think the last time I played it was like, 2011 on 360. We used to play pregaming parties in college and it was the best.

Last one I owned was the one on 360 that featured Jordan for the first time, that game was amazing. I rented or tried the demo on a few since then just never got around to buying a newer one.

Looking through my achievements, my lists are too long. About 2/3rd of the games I've played over the past year have been on Game Pass.

Games like DMC5, Dead Cells and Bloodstained are some of my favorites this gen but I already purchased those.

Games like Ori 2, Forza 4, Gears 5 and Outer Worlds were great, saved me money...but I would've bought those.

Where the real value comes is from those games I would have never purchased. Favorite discoveries on Game Pass:
  • Slay the Spire - I probably would have never purchased a card game in my life but this is now a top 15 game of the gen for me
  • A Plague Tale - One of the best story driven games of the gen
  • Skyforce Reloaded - videogame crack
  • Mutant Year Zero
  • Yakuza Zero
  • My Friend Pedro
  • Goose Game - had fun playing with my kids
  • Remnant: From the Ashes
  • Enter the Gungeon
  • Wasteland 2
  • Shadow of the Tomb Raider - didn't love ROTTR which is why I skipped this. Like this one better.
  • Metro Exodus
  • DmC - convinced me to buy DMC5
  • Rise and Shine
  • Human Fall Flat - me and my son had a blast playing this together

To me the primary value has come not in the savings but in the discovery of stuff I would've never spent money to take a chance on.
