There were dozens of games added to Xbox Game Pass on Console and PC in 2021 worth over $6,300, according to calculations done by The Loadout.

The total value of all the games added to the subscription service was $6,317.35 in 2021. This is based on the price of each game on the Microsoft Store. 

March 2021 added the most value to the service worth $964.67. During the month nearly two dozen Bethesda games were added, which is when Microsoft's acquisition of Bethesda parent company ZeniMax was completed. 

30 Bethesda games were added in 2021 with a value of $604.71. This is just under 10 percent of the total value of all the games added.

Xbox Game Pass for Console and PC Game Pass are each priced at $9.99 per month, while Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, which includes Game Pass for Console and PC, EA Play, and Xbox Live Gold, is priced at $14.99 per month.

Gamepass is what made me get an xbox over a playstation this gen, such a great service. I'll probably get a ps5 at some point, but I'm currently very happy with the xbox.

Gamepass Ultimate is certainly worth the price for me. Anything I truly want to keep, I just buy heavily discounted during a sale.

It's definitely the best value on the market for any gamer. I remember the days of PS2 and 360 when I would purchase tons of games I wanted to play and had waaaay too many I never played that I sold because I had moved on to the next console. Even if you can find games at a bargain, I still rather have Gepass and play whatever I can without the regret of purchasing something I never will play.

Honestly Game Pass has been incredible for me. Lately I have had no access to my console or TV, so just booting up xCloud via Game Pass Ultimate and having my game saves pick up instantly from when I last played on a physical console was a blast. The library of games keeps getting better as well.

Game Pass was stellar this year and for me the best year since the service began. Next year is looking at least on par if not better with the planned releases we know about.

I would rather buy and own my games than rent. I actually have a large backlog of games right now. Not interested in Gamepass or PSNow. But to each their own.

Yeah, but how many of those games would I really be interested in playing? It's the same with Netflix and such, I go in and see one show and then get out until the next interesting thing. As I get older, I get pickier and pickier.
