However, from the point of view of the most die-hard gaming fans, who cannot tear themselves away from their favorite titles for the console, PC or smartphone (via the cloud), in its broadest version the service offers as many as 495 items (some of the games are available for each of the above-mentioned platforms
– we read in the official announcement. These are numbers that are impressive – especially if we break them down into prime factors and it turns out that the owners of MS consoles currently have 348 titles at their disposal. The Xbox Game Pass catalog for computers includes 229 games, while Cloud Gaming offers 205 productions. And yes – the subscription is constantly rotating, older titles give way to newer ones and something changes regularly (apart from products published by Microsoft’s in-house studios). One thing remains the same: quality. This is something that is definitely worth praising the MS approach, because the titles that go there are absolutely not accidental.
According to the Wall Street Journnal, the objective and most valued game scores are given by Metacritic.com. According to the website’s data, as much as 37.5 percent. titles available in Game Pass received over 80 points. The most numerous group of games are those rated between 80 and 89 points – it is 32.2 percent. the entire directory of the service.

Just 2.5% or 10 games ranked below 59 points on Metacritic.
Many of the games there are really long titles. Those that engage players for hours. In the latest report, the company shared information about how much time players spent playing with Xbox Game Pass – and it definitely contradicts the theory that it only works there. pirate syndrome.

Hookers of the first attempt will most likely reach for co-op Dead by Daylight, which, according to HowLongToBeat.com, can be spent up to 461 hours4. This means that you would have to play this title continuously for 19.2 days! It is worth noting in this case that we are talking about the time devoted to the game itself. Due to its mode, it is difficult to speak strictly about its completion. There are 4 more items in the Game Pass catalog of similarly engaging games – on average, players spent over 100 hours playing each of them, and these are:
- PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds – 160 h (Tryb: Battle Royal)
- Europa Universalis IV – 119 h
- FIFA 15 – 118 h
- KINGDOM HEARTS – HD 1.5+2.5 ReMIX – 112 h

2020 was great, may 2021 be even better!
I hope that Microsoft will not rest on its laurels and this is really just a warm-up. I secretly hope that in 2021 the company will prepare even more hits for us in the subscription. In this, we finally get a solid package of games from the hired developers! How will it be – time will tell. I am waiting and looking for more hits in the subscription!
