    • Just so people know, there seems to be issues with getting it to run on rg351 series. Native Android devices are still the way to go.

      Lawn Mower Simulator. Watch the kids play it while you sit back with a beer or three and yell at them for missing a spot!

      • +2

        Good for teaching your young children before you get them on the tools (like mowing) at an early age (5?) so they are paying back their massive debt to you.

        Or they just play Among Us for free Dec 14 and yard goes to shit.

      Your logic makes zero sense. You don't get GP just to play one game. GP simply gives a lot of choice for people to play different types of games whenever they want.

        So generally not for completionists?

        If you will utilize the library, playing multiple games each month (maybe the main story for some, others just a dip in) makes sense?

        If you complete one game at at time, makes less sense?

        • +1

          Completionists generally spend a ton of their time playing games so they will get through games like this faster than someone like me who only spends a few hours at most per week. It makes sense either way.

        • +1

          I play one game at a time and have found it to be very valuable given I paid about $100 for 16 months, a few games I've done absolutely everything in, others I've just mainlined.

          I've finished 10 games (plus jump into Slay the Spire and Halo).
          So that's about $10 a game so far and I've still got 10 months to run on my Game Pass.
          That's playing a mix of short games (Donut County, Forgotten City) and long games (DQXI, Yakuza), I'd average around 5-10hrs a week of gaming which isn't extreme, yet there's still plenty of value for those who want to just play a game at a time.

        • +1

          At $16.95/month (though most ozbargainers are not spending that amount). If you spend more than $200/year on games that appear on gamepass, you're coming out on top. If you spend less than that, then it isn't a good idea for you.

          • +1

            @ONEMariachi: It's $15.95 btw and that is for the highest tier you can actually just get the base tier for Xbox or PC for $10.95.

          They have come out and said they're revamping the installing system so you can access your files and mod them, it's currently in testing right now.

        • +1

          I'm surprised you consider the PC game selection weak.. I only play single player games and I've currently got 27 games installed. My problem isn't the selection, it's having the time to play them all! And that doesn't include games that I've completed and uninstalled or have dropped off the service.
          Some of the games are decent quality games:
          Wasteland 3
          The Outer Worlds
          Desperados 3
          Octopath Traveler
          Forza Horizon 5
          Crusader Kings 3
          although I actually prefer a lot of the small indie games.

      Your statement would make sense if SV was the only game on gamepass.

      However if you divide the amount of available games on gamepass by the monthly sub, the "cost" of SV is less than 15 cents.

      • Do you consider what you get out of each game?

        Since you're paying for time (renting), you might consider it in the same form.

        If you have 50hrs of gaming per month, and you play each game in the library equally… let's say there are 100 games (approx.), that's half an hour for your 15 cents. That's not bad.

        Same if you decide you love SV once you start playing, and end up doing the main story (50hrs) but decide completionist (150hrs) is too much, again you've paid the same amount for the same time.

        I'd rather own the medium-long games than try using XGP to play it on the cheap, as the added flexibility of ownership is a very useful asset, and it will work out more economically most the time .

        If you want to dip into many games each month, and there's enough new offered by MS on a month-by-month basis, then that's were XBP becomes unbeatable value.

        It's similar to any other sub (e.g. Netflix), until you break it down into a function of time, you can't understand what value you derive from it. It's why most people end up with multiple ongoing subs at recurring monthly costs but don't utilize too much content from each. Which is why this model is profitable.

        Maybe you don't care about that, since you just want the convenience of knowing you've got that sub active and can tune in at any time. But I think the true bargainer goes one sub at a time…

        • +1

          Well value is always in the eye of the individual. But the value of SV in the gamepass model is vastly different from you subscribing to gamepass for the sole purpose of playing SV.

            @anzacpaul: I think that's what @miracle is getting at. But instead of telling us Game Pass is probably not worth it if you're purely planning to pump a lot of hours into the game he wrote a post that took us the same amount of time to read that it would complete the game.

  • +2

    Hmm Lawn Mowing Simulator.. I'm guessing someone out there is excited!

  • Does anybody know if it's possible to have gamepass sub and download Halo Infinite through Steam rather than the garbage Xbox PC app?

    • Different store. Won't work.
