Last month’s Games With Gold was excellent, featuring probably the best showing yet for Microsoft’s service, when the company gave away Sunset Overdrive, which remains to this day one of the best games on the Xbox One, and arguably still its best exclusive, for free.

This month’s offerings, by contrast, are a decided step down. In May, it seems like Microsoft will be offering some rather poor titles to subscribers- the Xbox One offerings are headlined by Defense Grid 2 and Costume Quest 2, while the Xbox 360 fares a bit better with Grid 2 and Peggle. 

As always, Xbox One players at least get to play the Xbox 360 games as well, but seriously- after last month’s great showing, this will probably cause a lot of people to be very, very pissed.

Sony, the ball is now in your court- it should not be too difficult to outdo Microsoft’s showing this month with whatever PS+ has planned. Then again, Sony have made it a habit to disappoint people beyond what was previously thought possible, so who knows, really.

    Free is never disappointing. You journalist really need to find something more interesting to write about.

    What I’m about to say goes for both services so here goes. They both have good, bad, excellent and okay months but when it comes down to it they are free games and the amount of whining about it is starting to get real old. You don’t play mp than don’t renew your subscription which is what the subs are really for the free games are just a bonus and be done with it. I’ve enjoyed the games on offer from both services to where they’ve covered the cost of my subs so this disappoint writers try to speak of really bugs me. I mean that’s your opinion fine but when you write it has if it’s a fact gamers everywhere are disappointed that’s when it grates me you are not the authority of what people enjoy or don’t enjoy and the sooner you quit acting like you are the better off the profession will be.

    Guess they’ve gone through the reserves of acceptable remaining Xbone exclusives to hand out after another terrible first half of a year.
