I tend to use gamepass in a way where I concentrate on that actual game only until I finish. I’ve only bought DLC for Forza 4 though! I also keep an eye on the “leaving soon” category, watch games not made by a Microsoft linked studio as they will leave at some point - that basically gives you enough notice to figure it out.

Not all will realise this though - for sure there should be a disclaimer that your DLC purchase will not be available outside of gamepass.

Is it fair? To me it is as I understand how it works and ‘risks’ involved, so yes. You can argue is it fair a user has paid fully price for a game and it ends up quick enough on gamepass too.

Yeah I've never had a problem with games leaving, and always known it was part of the deal. It's something you do need to consider as part of the package. That said MS need to do a better job of highlighting games that are leaving and the dates. You also get money off that game as a GP member if you want to keep it, whilst it's in the program.

I don't buy DLC for GP games generally, mostly because I'm a skinflint, there's too many games I want to play in the program to justify spending money on DLC.

Really enjoying EA Play being part of Game Pass. Wish they’d work through some of the games and enhance them.

Playing Unravel for the first time, and immediately thought how great it would be next gen enhanced.

Nothing compared to how much extra power PS5s need to keep reinstalling the same games

Because it's on GamePass and for nostalgia's sake I thought I would try PES out. I'm enjoying it, so far.

What kind of mode/s are you playing? I started with the default ML team and the players react so slow, it's really hard to defend. The game admittedly plays much better and is tighter with the top teams.
