I'm closing the poll at the end of the month (2 days left).
I hope most of you could check out the January games to form an opinion. Would be great if a few of you reading this could vote (if you haven't already).
There's currently a tie between GTA V and A Plague Tale so that we might get a winner at the end.

Around the Network

Another game joined Game Pass (yesterday *cough*):

The Jackbox Party Pack 3
One of the few games the wife would play with me so I'm excited to try it out.

Also thanks for the votes! There's still a tie but eh what can you do. Just one more day until I close the poll.

March is going to be an exciting month for Game Pass. So far there are only two confirmed games but at least one of them is considered to be a heavy hitter:
Bleeding Edge and Ori and the Will of the Wisps

Best Game Pass game of January 2020?

A Plague Tale: Innocence 4 33.33%
Children of Morta 1 8.33%
Frostpunk 2 16.67%
FTL: Faster Than Light 0 0.00%
Grand Theft Auto V 4 33.33%
Gris 1 8.33%
Indivisible 0 0.00%
Sea Salt 0 0.00%
Sword Art Online: Fatal Bullet 0 0.00%
Tekken 7 0 0.00%
Total: 12

1st place goes to GTA V and A Plague Tale: Innocence. Well deserved.

Kinda surprising to me that Frostpunk gets third place considering its an strategy game which usually aren't that popular.

Meh? Ori is great, Pikuniku I honestly have no clue but I like to try it...

Train Sim = is one of those games that hardly anyone plays but plenty want to give it a try..

And Honestly...NBA2K20 IS HUGE.... Sure we may not like but it is constantly one of the top selling games on the NPD.

Well NBA 2K20 had this huge controversy... at least it's not WWE 2K20.

Already own 2K20. So to me the firsh half of the month is kinda meh also. I also hope a lot people complain how low the quest rewards are this month they worth less then one fourth of what they where last month.

Played Plague Tale a d it impressed me. Excellent game. Thank you GamePass.
