Surprise! Xbox Games With Gold For April Hasn't Gone Down Well

Microsoft has just revealed the latest Xbox Games with Gold selection and, it's safe to say it's not gone over well. While we sometimes think there's a bit of an overreaction to these reveals, the outcry might actually be justified this time around.

After the announcement, Xbox fans took to social media to vent their frustrations. As it turns out, one of these games has actually been Games with Gold before, back in 2015.

Another comment pointed out that this is the second time such an event has occurred with Games with Gold. Either way, they're right with this one, as MX vs. ATV Alive was indeed handed out for free years ago. On Twitter, some fans made their general annoyance heard too.

Some even suggested removing the program entirely in favour of an improved freebie:

Here at Pure Xbox, the selection didn't go down well with readers either. Our monthly Games with Gold poll showed that almost 50% of voters deemed this month's games "terrible!"

We have to agree that it may well be time to ditch GwG and move on to another perk. After Sony's recent PS Plus re-shuffle, maybe Xbox could do something similar.

What do you make of Games with Gold as whole? Is it time for it to go? Let us know in the comments.
