I played 20 games on GP in 2019 alone. Played it, beat it, uninstalled, moved on to the next. I like to think I very much saved money playing 20 games for $15 a month. Games included day 1 Gears 5 and Outer Worlds (both $60 value at the time). 

Im sorry but this is a bad argument. Fear mongering and “what if” witch-hunts at its worst. 

Since it's essentially a rental program you're probably not playing bigger/longer games or not getting a huge variety. Sacrifices are made for the money you think you're saving. And hey if you have no complaints then whatever. It's not like M$ hasn't done bad things for the market before.

... like... what? For argument's sake, we'll call this a rental program. Why would that mean you can't rent a long game? I used Gamefly for a while, and I played a mix of long games and short games. I didn't feel the need to limit myself to short games, because it was cheap enough, and I didn't feel any compulsion to focus on shorter games to get more bang for my buck, cause that would be kind of weird. With Gamepass, since you don't have to return a game before you can get a new one, there's even less incentive to avoid lengthy games. As for variety, there's plenty of variety on Gamepass. Look at the list yourself.

This kind of seems to be scraping the bottom of the barrel. Also, the use of M$ is frowned upon. A normal S will be fine.
