As someone whose been a premium subscriber for a long time (and has credit for another year), I do sometimes feel like more stuff should be free. Metal Gear Scanlon is like essential viewing, it's lame that that's locked behind a paywall. And I feel like a lot of smaller games that would've had Quick Looks in the past get played on Unprofessional Fridays now.
That being said, it's only 5 bucks for a monthly subscription, and you don't have to auto renew. So even if you don't have a lot of money, you can probably afford to get a monthly every once in a while and catch up on the new stuff. It's worth it.
