They have truly given up at this point.

I’d say more that they’ve taken their focus off of this completely and put it on Gamepass.

They don't need to focus on giving free games anymore. GamePass basically makes this unimportant.

Yeah. Honestly, I have a feeling that this service will go the wait of the dodo. Gamepass is enough TBH.

The only reason i believe MS is still giving the games away is because Sony is still doing it. otherwise, i can see them scrapping it the moment they can. Not that i want them to but its the way the business model is headed.

Hope not. You actually get to keep the Xbox 360 games if your subscription ends... So it's good to load up that old console with these digital titles once I relegate the console to the games room.

Plus we are starting to get obscure games that people generally haven't heard of, so we get to give them a whirl.

Yeah its been great for me to. Iv been enjoying collection the 360 titles for that very reason. Fingers crossed they continue with this model but my gut feeling is they wont in the future.

Well... I think the Xbox 360 games are pretty good.

I actually had that NeoGeo Battle Coliseum game on Arcade and it was pretty fun.

I've always thought that GwG should drop games like "Shadows Awakening" and Injustice to focus on their amazing Arcade library
