YMMV: Xbox Live Arcade

  • Crowning Moment of Awesome: For about a year now Xbox Live Gold members get two free games a month, and not just obscure or arcade titles either. Assassin's Creed! Gears of War! Rainbow Six Vegas! Dead Island! Sleeping Dogs! Hitman Absolution! What a way to reward the fan's loyalty, by offering solid recent AAA releases that can be kept even if you drop your Gold membership. (It was later expanded to cover Xbox One games, but you have to maintain Gold membership to keep that console's games.)
