2015’s Games with Gold & Xbox Live – was it good value? Let’s find out….

Today the final free games for Xbox Live Gold Members were announced.

48 games in total have been on offer throughout the year totalling almost $1000.00 in value for gamers on both the Xbox One and Xbox 360, with the average value of each game being $20.65.

By having an active Xbox Live Membership you not only get access to a variety of very solid services but as an added bonus you also get a choice of any or all of the free games offered every month.

Now if you are anything like me you have probably downloaded just about every game that has been offered up. If we take the $59.99 for the 12 months membership off the total for all the games listed below you have still received (or had the potential to) $931.49 value throughout 2015 once you access and download next month’s games.

$931.49 value. That’s just on games, that doesn’t include any of the services that you have access to, party chat, secure network, multiplayer, thousands of servers, continuous new features, cross-play, etc, etc.

I’d say when you look at it that way, Xbox Live Gold Membership is amazing value and I highly recommend anyone that is sitting on the fence to give it a go.

You can purchase one month’s Xbox Live Gold for only $1 at the moment through the Black Friday sales and access November and December’s games before that runs out – you really would be cheating yourself if you own an Xbox and do not take up that offer.

Below is a list of all the games that were on offer throughout 2015, so go check it out as chances are you have downloaded games that you forgot you even had.
