Microsoft should follow of the line of Sony and should offer Xbox One owners Free AAA game under "Games With Gold" scheme.
I think either Forza 5 or Dead Rising 3 would be a great choice. Ryse... not so much
I have actually never played a Forza game before, even though I have owned a 360 since 2008 and own a X1... I would like to play FH2, but if they gave F5 away through GwG it would give me a chance to try the series out and decide on whether I should get FH2. EDIT: Do they handle exactly the same way? I have heard about Horizon 2 being an open world racer. I had fun with Midnight Club L.A. because it was open world.
Forza and Horizon are totally different. You should find a way to test both on their own merits before making a decision.
@Zichu there is a demo available for Horizon 2 to try so ide advise on giving that a go.
Most of the X1 free gold games I already owned when they went free. DR3 is the best choice imo. I had it but traded it in for bills. Would love to have it again. It was a shit ton of fun.
Those are great choices. I agree with you on Ryse. That game would be terrible for games with gold.
You never played it though.
@Angelic I don't have to own an Xbox One to play Ryse. I basically played it at a friends house and while the story is pretty cool and the graphics nice (not the best I've seen though) the gameplay felt very repetitive. I played it for 4 hours so that's plenty of time for me to decide whether its a good game or not. Next time dont try and tell me what I did or didn't so since you dont even know me in person.
You need to tell us something less generic than "the graphics were good" or "the story was cool" to convince people you actually played it.
@Dom What else do you want me to do? Post my 4 hours of gameplay on YouTube or tell you the whole story? But then you'll just say I posted somebody else's video or that I got all the information of the Story by watching let's plays. I know you refuse to believe me because I didn't like the game. But the fact is I'm not the only one who played Ryse and didn't enjoy it. If it makes you feel any better I loved Dead Rising 3 and if I had a PC that could handle that game I would buy it. P.S In the end its all down to personal opinion and I have the right to state mine. P.S.S I know you liked Ryse and I respect that so I expect you to respect my opinion. If I believe that DR3 or Forza 5 are much better choices for Games with Gold than Ryse I dont see any issue with having that opinion. You might think that Ryse is a better game than those too but I disagree with you on that.
Honestly, I want Kinect Sports Rivals. I love having those games around for Parties/kids, but I don't want to pay for it. If they want to go 3rd party, I'd like to see Tomb Raider: DE. Another game I want to play, but don't want to buy. I doubt we'll see Forza5 or DR3, because they have a racing game and a open world game that they are pushing, FH2 and SO. Ryse seems out of the question too because they are giving it out to people who bought SO bundles.
Do you know how much people that would upset that have not purchased the kinect?
Their fault for not getting a Kinect.
@ben I think they would get mad due to how bad the game is. Forza 5 or Dead Rising 3 are much better games than Kinect Sports Rivals which got a meta of 60 compared to the 80+ of those two titles.
Can't please everyone... Its no different than when they offer a game you already own...
I second that on Kinect Sports Rivals
I'd like Metro Redux Please :)
You should buy it to support the Ukrainian studio that created the series (4A Games)! They went through a lot more than american studios in creating this game, and they will produce more high quality games in the future.
Galletto is absolutely right. Both 2033 and Last Light are excellent games oozing with atmosphere. I just finished the campaign of Metro 2033 (Redux) and really liked the flow of it, from crawling through dark and damp tunnels riddled with spiderwebs to the overly bright outdoor level in and around the library.
I do want this game and I will get it once I have cleared the backlog on my to do list. My wallet is really hurting thanks to the latest onslaught of games. It will be mine one day :)
forza 5 would definitely seem to be the game of choice... they recently did that free weekend for it, would help promote forza horizon 2 more towards christmas, by all accounts its a solid racer, it's AAA, it's first party, it's 1080p60FPS, can't see Ryse or DR3 especially since they just re-released it as a full package.
Ryse is not available for purchase only because Ryse Legendary Edition has replaced it. Which is lame, because it keeps the price up at £45.
Ryse.. RYSE.. RYSE!!!
Shouting at it won't help. You may need 'the blue pill'.. ;^P
Ryse would be good. Never really wanted to play the game, as it didn't appeal to me. But if it was on GwG then yes I would surely play it.
Dead rising 3 would be nice.. But I really don't care. If I want a game I just buy them. If we get it free that's fine but not a must.
Whatever game they want to give away for FREE am okay with it seeing as how it's a FREE game.
Even if it is Solitaire? @Havok how about Grass Simulator or Rock Smash or Princess Horse Ride
yep! no harm no foul
It's free not costing me a dime and still allowing me the option of to get or not get. Do Yeah Am Okay WITH Solitary.
It'll have to be a 1st party game I feel.. So forza or dr3.. Ryse isn't likely as they are trying to sell it Which kinda sucks.. Bought both at launch lol
launch games get a pass *Shrug* I bought the big 3. Forza was my least favorite but then again I'm not into racing games (only mario kart ;) ...DR3 was surprisingly fun and my first game in the series. Ryse was a graphical beast with amazing voice over work. Short campaign was my only issue. Idk about their MP cuz it never interested me
Forza sucks and the new one out who cares, dr3 I tought was 40/70 to me needs more work. Thiy need to stop puting dumea$$ arcade games for gold thiy suck and I cant bring my self to play those games for thin 1min.
If thiy whant to spice it up, bring back some 360 games for gold?
Really wanna show up Sony, give Forza 5, ryse, and dead rising. Advertise the whole best line up this holiday and for the month of December were tossing in the line up from last holiday as well. Not like any of them are selling great anymore anyway.
I saw the Sony announcement and frankly I was unimpressed. Injustice is a game that came out on last gen consoles and was ported to PS4 so they would have a fighter to compete with Killer Instinct at launch last year. It is a great game, but it was AAA 2 years ago, not last year or this year. infamous first light was a stand alone expansion pack not a full AAA game. So Sony fans like to sell this as AAA stuff, but my personal feeling is something less than AAA. That said, I will definitely enjoying getting these games on my PS4... But, unlike Sony, MS has kept their XBL network much more stable than the PSN network over the past year, and that is what I pay my money each year to get. I don't really care which games I get for free. I care much more that every time I boot my X1 up, it comes up and says signed in and allows me to play my games online.
make it happen msft....
Would be happy with Minecraft just have not got around to getting it.
it will probably happen... not terribly concerned I actually kinda like the notion of getting "new" indie games versus stuff that is already out in the wild for months prior. Less chance of me already having bought it before.
I don't care what it is I just want something good, whether it is an indie or AAA game does not matter to me. I would not mind ryse though I think at a price of free I could have some good fun with it however I would much prefer another [email protected] game at launch
Powerstar Golf, KI S1, Shape Up and or Kinect Sports Rivals. I would love to see any one of these as a GWG. =)
Have to say I think GWG is the weakest aspect of the Xbox One. I know it's early days yet but the last couple of months offerings have been really lack lustre. I have Forza 5 but think it would be an awesome game to give away, with plenty of dlc to make some money back on. Plus it would reignite the online community which would be great for those of us with the game already. Having said that.... Dead rising 3 or KI. Surely games with dlc have more potential to earn Microsoft some spondoolies then Crimson Dragon 😂
