If you play consoles on a regular basis, then you'll be accustomed to getting a selection of free games every month. And if you've been paying for Xbox Live or PlayStation Plus for a few years, then you'll probably have accrued quite a few.
Thing is: how are you finding them?
There used to be a really good selection of games on both platforms. Everyone remembers Rocket League, but the Tomb Raider reboot has gone for a song on both platforms. Metal Gear Solid 5: Ground Zeroes popped up on Games with Gold last year, and the PS4 has gotten a string of enjoyable indies including Dust: An Elysian Tale, Sportsfriends, Hotline Miami, Helldivers and Rebel Galaxy.
But over the last few months, those enjoyable surprises have started to dry up. The Xbox One has gotten Sunset Overdrive, The Wolf Among Us and the locally made Hand of Fate. It feels like PS+ users have been shortchanged slightly — Galak-Z is interesting, and Tricky Towers can be fun for a quick co-op blast, but there hasn't been any real standouts.
But maybe I'm wrong. How are you finding the free titles you've received from Microsoft and Sony over the last year? And would you support Nintendo bringing in a similar model with the NX, if they decided to go that route? (God knows their back catalogue would be amazing.)
