Lately we've been seeing an increase in what I can only describe as Netflix for video games.
Microsoft introduced their own monthly game pass in the form of Xbox Game Pass, a subscription service available on both PC and Xbox One. $10 a month buys you the ability to play a respectable number of games, including Metro Exodus, Gears of War 4, Forza 4, and Dead Rising 4 among others. I myself subscribed to the service to play Metro Exodus, and it seems to work well enough.
Humble Bundle offers a similar service in the form of Humble Trove. EA offers a similar pass through Origin. Heck, next month Ubisoft will begin offering their own subscription service, which actually includes most of their newest games.
What do you guys think of "game passes"? Would you prefer to try out a new video game through one such pass and save a couple dollars, or would you prefer to own it outright? If not, what do you think about the concept? While no one likes the EA games as a service model, would you consider put a game pass in the same category?
