So much to try

During the beta period, as Microsoft ramps up the associated app and service, Xbox Game Pass for PC costs just $5 per month. I’d argue that even at its full price of $10 it represents some of the best value deals in gaming, giving access to tons of games you’d otherwise have to buy separately.

Slipping in at the top spot we have The Outer Worlds, which by itself makes a month of Xbox Game Pass for PC totally worth it. Set in a distant colony controlled by corrupt corporations, you wake up from hyperspace deep sleep to find a civilization on the brink of collapse. Travel across various unique planets in a game where your decisions affect the outcome of every quest. Oh, and if you want, you can just kill every character in the entire game if that’s to your liking.

Wolfenstein II remains a personal favorite. The satisfying shooting coalesces with great visuals, an intriguing and varied story, and stunning audio work to create something truly special.

Mutant Year Zero is another personal favorite. Despite having pretty wacky-looking characters and plenty of humor, the story is actually rather dark and deceptively well-realized. The combat is aggressive, but not what I’d consider unfair by any stretch, focusing a little more on positioning and tactics rather than luck-based hit percentages.

Finally, I have to give a shoutout to Moonlighter. If you’re looking for something a little more light-hearted and easy-going, Moonlighter is a good choice. The combat is slick and well-executed, complete with a large RPG-style upgrade system that’ll have you losing track of time with all its addictiveness.
