Some of the earlier Madden and NHL games are leaving Game Pass. Not really serious news.

Also, Weekly and Monthly quests are updated.

I gotta take care of some monthly quests before I pack up the Xbox and TV for a couple weeks lol. Anything annoying?

Just looked it up: Looks easy so far. I'm at a save in Alien where I was hiding like a little ***** anyway, so 5 more minutes is nothing, and I'm playing Forza with friends anyway so Ill get that quick

Some of them seem like they can be earned fairly quick. Alien could take a while because you would have to get a few chapters in to actually run into the Alien for the first time. Elder Scrolls Online could take a while also, if youíve never played before. The opening section takes about an hour to complete and then finding 2 Skyshards could probably take an hour or two.

Some unfortunate games coming off of Game Pass at some point this month (exact dates not announced yet)...

Alan Wake, Battlefield Gothic: Armada 2, DayZ, Dungeon of the Endless, Final Fantasy IX, Hotline Miami, and Plebby Quest: The Crusades

Obviously the unfortunate ones would be Alan Wake and Final Fantasy IX. I had downloaded Alan Wake a couple of weeks ago and planned on playing it at some point in the near future, but I guess that's a no go now since I'm already playing other games right now. Oh well I guess.

If the other games you are playing aren't leaving Game Pass, take a break from them and play Alan Wake, it's a terrific game and you can probably finish it before it leaves. It's rather addicting, just make sure you play it in the dark.

Alan Wake was a really great game. If you miss is on Gamepass just buy it. Well worth the price.

This is why I cancelled Gamepass.

These games they let you play is on their terms, not yours.

Can't argue with that entirely. It is frustrating when some games get scheduled to leave the service out of the blue when you would think it would be there for a long time, like Alan Wake, but there is still value in it (especially if you let it run out each time, sign up for 3 years of Gold, and then pay the $15 to convert it all).

There are several games on there that I am glad to have on there that I might not have normally bought, or at least now don't have to. There are some I will still buy even if I don't have to, but I'm still glad to have the option.

Most of these games have been on there for a year. If one is leaving that I have no interest in ever buying, I just download and either completely finish it or finish as much of it as I can before it leaves. We usually get about 2 weeks notice. There aren’t too many games that you can’t finish in 2 weeks.

I'm guessing you don't use any movie streaming service either?

IMO Gamepass is still the best value in gaming

Well one game gives you more content than one movie. Plus some very good games. Netflix really.hasnt brought it in a very long time and I think after Army of the Dead I'm gonna cancel.

But opinions and experiences vary.

As someone pointed out, games provide way more time/content than a movie does. Additionally, in pure numbers there are far more movies and TV shows going back even more decades to pull from.

And you pivoted away from your original point, which is games eventually leaving. And as someone pointed out, movies/shows leaving streaming services as well...

If the service wasn't for you, cool. But, so far your reasons for why it's not a good service don't really add up.

Was Mad Max on Game Pass for a while and now gone? I could have sworn it was on there (reminded by it being on the list of FPS upgrades).

I know it was on late 2017 to early 2018 because that's when my achievements unlocked. Not sure when it was taken off. I had a lot of fun with that one.
