    With Rocket League being added to the service today and Warhammer Vermintide II within the next 24 hours, I realised Xbox Game Pass will have reached a whopping total of 182 games currently in the catalogue. This on a service which only promises 'over 100 games', so not bad at all.

    It now has a solid library which will only grow stronger when Microsoft finally gets its first party act together, with Forza Horizon 4 debuting on the service day one in October.

    I'm going to kick off by recommending this lesser known beauty:

    As a fan of Ghosts n Goblins and Ghouls n Ghosts back in the day (and Maximo of course), this game is a dream come true. It's a homage to those games, and gets all the basics right but also controls much better than those games - it's all the fun without the frustration.

    And of course, this classic:


    In my top 3 of last generation, available to play in all its glory with Game Pass. It still totally holds up and is a must play if you missed it.

    Late Shift was a treat.

    There are too many great games to even start picking favourites but the ones that I only got through gamepass and played a lot of are Cities Skylines, The Division, and Sea of Thieves

    Yeah I went into that blind and it was a real weird and fun experience.
  4. matrixman92


    I started zombie army trilogy last night with a friend and it was great. Only disappointment is the checkpoints are pretty far apart
  5. Mido


    It's been great for trying new games you otherwise would never buy and playing some of the oldies. I'm playing Oblivion for the first time in 4K and it's so good.
  6. Fucking love that this was the first post. Came in to say this. It's so good. We need more live action choice narrative games like this.
  7. Starlatine


    i love the "games that i had a passing interest somewhere in the past but would never buy to try them" category

    current members: wasteland 2, sherlock holmes devils daughter, letter quest, late shift, sea of thieves

    I actually had no idea it'd gotten up to that many games. The list seemed long when I looked on it on my Xbox, but I kinda assumed there were enough games quietly leaving that it was hovering a little above the 100 number they advertise with.

    I really need to try Guacamelee sometime. I've heard a lot of good about it.
  10. pswii60

    Ninja Gaiden Black is the best game on the service, with it being the best game of all time and everything ;)

    4K on the X too.


    Don't sleep on Oxenfree. I guess I gotta play Late Shift.

    180 games already? Wow.
  12. Xiaomi


    They gotta improve the PC selection by like 2000%. My pass expires in 8 days and I'm just not getting enough games for PC to renew it.
  13. Mifune


    I love the idea of Game Pass. But it just seems to me like a Neverending Backlog Generator so I've been hesitant. Maybe I'll sub when Forza Horizon 4 hits.
  14. Tharp


    Phil Spencer acknowledged that in the Giant Bomb interview. I don't think it's officially supported on PC yet, it seems more like a side effect of some of the games being Play Anywhere to where your Xbox Game Pass ends up with some of the games playable on PC. He made it sound like they are going to work on improving the PC catalog massively before they officially support it.

    Playing through resident evil 0 and enjoying it right now
  16. Starlatine


    There is no pc selection yet. Xbox game pass is a xbox console service which you can play some titles on PC thanks to another feature from microsoft (play anywhere)
  17. johndoe8865


    Really surprised by Late Shift, Wasteland 2, and NBA Playgrounds. I wouldn't have outright bought any of them likely, but I'm now open to the idea after playing them.
  18. khamakazee


    It's terrible on PC in comparison. I have a 6 month pass but I won't enable it until Forza Horizon 4 hits.

    Yep it was really good and I got the worst possible ending of it and still enjoyed it

    Tekken Tag 2, Sea of Thieves and Ninja Gaiden Black need shout outs.

    It’s a ridiculous collection of games for the price.
  21. johndoe8865


    Sea of Thieves! I knew I was forgetting something!
  22. ghostcrew

    Spooky Moderator

    Tbf it’s an Xbox service. Because certain games are Play Anywhere they’ll work on Windows too. It’s not a collection of games aimed at PC players.
  23. Boosch


    Shantae and the pirates curse is an amazing game. Different from the other Shantae games but the best one in my opinion. It's not a game you subscribe to gamepads for but sweetens the deal nicely.
  24. litebrite


    I can't believe people are actually complaining about a service not meant for that platform yet.
  25. ghostcrew

    Spooky Moderator

    Can I give a huge shout out to Cluster Truck. That game is loads better than it has any right to be. I love it.
  26. Starlatine


    clustertruck and human fall flat looked perfect for me before trying them out. got bored quite quickly of both

    guess its still a good use of gamepass since it saved me money, but still

    Let's be honest, the man wanted to dump on the service. I don't think he even has a 6 month pass, lol.
  28. Mollymauk


    Knight Squad is fun multiplayer
  29. castaction


    yeah but i was able to play some games that i would never touch like sea of thieves my wife and i started to play this game 3 days ago and we having a lot of fun, she downloaded sunset overdrived beat it and enjoyed it too
  30. Kasey


    So many amazing games so I'll limit to games I played first through the service.

    Limbo, Battleblock Theater and Bioshock.

    Also every GP subscriber should try D4.
  31. daniel77733


    Game Pass has been good for me as it gave me the chance to play some Xbox 360 games that I missed out on. Gears trilogy and Darksiders. Still have to play Darksiders 2 and Recore.

    To be fair, it's called Xbox Game Pass.
  33. XVerdena


  34. saenima


    I just got an xbox a few days ago, mostly due to game pass and bc. For someone who never had an xbox and has been late to this gen, it's like stepping into a delicious buffet. After trimming down that list to what i really want to play and nothing else, there's still close to 100 games on it.
  35. francium87



    It's a short, zen diving/swimming with sea life experience (some compare it to journey). Look, I am biased because I used to volunteer at an aquarium, and love
    prehistoric reptiles
    It's worth checking out! (also, music by Austin Wintory)
  36. nightwatcher


    Why the fuck isnt forza part of this?
  37. Windu


    The keys to me for Game Pass titles and my interest to keep playing are that it has to grab my attention quickly. It can't have a long intro video or long tutorial. It needs to get me into the gameplay quick. Otherwise I move on to the next thing.

    Anyway, I played Bomber Crew today. That was fun. Does have a short tutorial but it kept my attention. Which says a lot.

    Also I have gotten into the habit of downloading every new game each month and checking each one out. Data Caps be damned.
  38. BDubsLegend

    Banned Member

    I love game pass now. Bomber crew is excellent! The Flame and the flood is also good. Next up hero was a surprise and I got to catch up on dead rising 3. I never tried DR3 because everyone said it was bad but it's great fun. I'm the kind of person that will by an indie because I'm bored and want something fresh. Gamepass handles this for me. I was iffy on the value at first but it's come through for me.
  39. francium87


    oh, right!
    reminder that a banjo kazooie ship figurehead is only available for purchase this month in game (1998 gold, should take no more than a few hours' work solo, less if you have people helping)
  40. Norris1020


    I enjoyed Super Lucky’s Tale.

    I’m thinking about resubscribing but I’m wondering if anyone’s played Sonic CD and Sonic and Knuckles in here? I tried them on PSN PS3 years ago and the input lag was terrible the games were unplayable.
  41. TheZynster


    Without gamepass I would have wasted $90 on sea of thieves and state of decay 2......so happy for this service.

    Was surprised by all the Star Wars additions.....replaying KOTOR now and happy i don't have to try to find my original disc......that would have been a nightmare lol.

    Also homefront was shockingly not terrible. It's mediocre, but fun to just guns blaze with buddies in co-op

    Got all the fables queue'd to go once i finish FFXV again, I don't even remember fable all that much. So this is almost like a first dive honestly.

    Game Pass is honestly maybe my favorite thing to come out of the current generation. I love it

    Currently at about 40 hours into Fallout 4 and really enjoying it. Halo Wars 2 I think is pretty underrated so I'll point that one out as it hasn't been mentioned yet
  43. Braaier


    Gonna jump into game pass once I clear out some of my backlog. Don't need to add 100+ games to that backlog
  44. I just beat DmC this past weekend and I really enjoyed it. Contrast that with my experience with DMc4 and it’s night and day
  45. Starlatine


    by the way letter quest seems cheap so i always ignored it but the game is super fun even for non native english speakers like me

    try it out folks
  46. CthulhuSars


    I was hesitant with the idea of game pass but I really do see things like this as the future of gaming for a lot of studios.
  47. JustinH


    I played a lot of Sea of Thieves back when it launched. I'd like to get back into it, but I don't know anyone who even wants to play it.

    I've played a lot of State of Decay 2, as well. I have to take a lot of breaks with that game though, because it tenses me up so much lol.

    I played a bit of Late Shift, but I'm not sure why I never finished it. I thought it was really neat. Aren't they making a new game or something? I thought I saw something during E3 that made me go "That reminds me of Late Shift" and someone else said it was by the same guys (or maybe just same publisher?).
  48. xabbott


    If it wasn't for Gamepass I would have never tried and loved DmC. That's probably been my favorite.
  49. knuckles


    finally redeemed my free month that came with the x. + bonus month. Even for someone who buys a lot of games there's a lot here.

    Have replayed kotor, and then played for the first time fable anniversary (x enhanced looks pretty good). Then played halo wars 2 campaign. I started super luckys tale but didn't grab me. Started elder scrolls online and think I'm hooked. Sea of thieves is not for me. Wanted to play recore, the division, sod2 and dead rising 3 but I think I'm buying eso now. Send help.

    I've played most of the other 'heavy hitters' in gamepass but still a lot left to play here. I have such a ridiculous backlog so I won't resubscribe but I will be back for fh4.
  50. Kayotix


    Love game pass, can't wait till horizon and other first party games are all on it.

    Need to play wasteland 2 and bomber crew. I downloaded them today
  51. Starlatine


    they have the something something of doctor something. another FMV game that looks like a murder mystery, hit xbox recently

    The Infectious Madness of Doctor Dekker

    not sure if its by them now, though
