Games just show up on my console and computer, and I don’t deserve them. Since I got Game Pass, my patience for games that don't immediately excite me has plummeted.
There are some benefits to this of course. I feel less obligated to spend time with games hoping that they will turn into something I love. I have also been surprised to find myself forgetting about games that I thought I would love when I started, but have dropped from my brain because of everything else I can play.
It's hard for me to shake the feeling that those games I stopped playing so quickly "deserved" more of my time, because I know if I had spent $30 or $60 I would have spent more time with them. It makes me think that subscriptions services will start to change the way games are made. I think the Gears 5 team even admitted to doing this. Maybe this is something to look forward to though. A game that grabs you and won't let go is always a pleasure to find.
So have any of you gotten more discriminating since subscribing to games? Are you excited for how these services might change games, or the time you spend with them?
