Talking Point: Three Months Since It Ended, Are You Missing Xbox Games With Gold?

Believe it or not, it's been three months since Xbox Games With Gold came to a close! The service was replaced with Xbox Game Pass Core back in September, bringing an end to the monthly "free" games given away by Xbox.

The final selection of GwG titles arrived back in August in the form of Blue Fire and Inertial Drift, after which the service was replaced with 36 Game Pass titles that became accessible at no extra charge to XBL Gold subscribers.

There's been very little talk about Xbox Games With Gold since, and ultimately it feels like most Xbox fans are pretty happy with the new Game Pass Core offering. We polled the Pure Xbox community about this back in September and found that only 20% of voters were vehemently opposed to the removal of GWG and Xbox Live Gold.

But that was September, and this is now! With 2023 about to finish up, we're interested to know how you're feeling about Xbox Games With Gold and Xbox Game Pass Core, and whether you think Microsoft made the right decision...
