If you played the “ton of games” on GamePass, you probably saved more than enough money to pay for another full year of GamePass, right?

But if I'm not going to get much use out of it for the next 6 months or so, why would I want to spend any money on Gamepass during that time period, regardless of how much I may have "saved" in other months?

Not trying to knock Gamepass, but it's not for everyone. Whether it's worth it for you is going to depend on what kinds of games you like and more importantly how much time you have to play games and how much money.

If I had infinite time, there are plenty of games I'd like to try on Gamepass, way more than enough to justify keeping my subscription. But, atm, time is more limited to me than money. If I'm only going to have time to play one or two games a month, I'd rather spend more so I can play games I really want to play.

This can be said about any subscription service.

If a user doesnt have the time to play at least 1 game on gamepass within a month no point in signing up for that month till you have the time.

Same with netflix etc dont have the time to watch a movie no point in signing up.

However if you are signed up and did find yourself playing even 1 game in that month then its paid for itself for that month.

If I have literally no time, then all subscription services will be equally useless. If I have some time though, then the subscription service may or may not be good depending on what's available. It's not that I don't have enough time to play games, it's that I'd rather use the time I do have to play stuff that's not on Gamepass. Hence why I cancelled my subscription for the time being. 

So, it's not just whether or not I have the time. It's a question of whether I have the time, and if I do, is there something else I'd rather be playing during that time to the extent that I'm willing to pay extra to be able to play that.
