Games With Gold Freebies For May 2018

This month’s Games With Gold offerings are quite eclectic, with everything from baseball to futuristic, stylish, action-shooters. Currently, three out of the four games are available through the end of the month. Sega Vintage Collection: Streets of Rage was available for free via Xbox Game Pass prior to this month’s Games With Gold and exited the rotation as of today. Though, as of the time of this writing, Xbox Games With Gold seems to be having some issues as I am still able to download Streets of Rage and the new title set to take it’s place, Vanquish has not yet been added to the line up. If you are a Streets of Rage fan now is the time to download this title, for free, before it is gone.

  • Super Mega Baseball 2 – May 1-31 (Xbox One)
  • Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain – May 16 to June 15 (Xbox One)
  • Sega Vintage Collection: Streets of Rage – May 1-15 (Xbox One, Xbox 360)
  • Vanquish – May 16-31 (Xbox One, Xbox 360)

What do you think of this month’s free games? With Microsoft adding more Xbox Originals to the Xbox Store would you like to see those titles added in future Games With Gold updates? Sound off in the comments.

Before I became a Geek Under Grace I was a student of Journalism and have always aspired to write for a gaming and geek culture publication. I am truly blessed to have found an outlet to reach not only thousands of fans, but those who may not have yet found Christ. My favorite genre of games is third-person/sandbox games. I like the freedom that they allow both in gameplay and in scale and they just seem less bland and limited than more linear titles. I still have a soft spot for RPG games but I now enjoy JRPGs far less than I did as a child because they are still basically the exact same as they always were, with a few exceptions of course. I also enjoy playing more tactical third-person multiplayer shooters or first-person shooters that try to shake things up. I absolutely hate games based on WWII or Vietnam as those settings and those types of gameplay have been done to death. Though I am not opposed to a future Assassin's Creed title being set during one of these wars. I also typically tend to stay away from MOBA's as they are notorious for abusive, and generally unsavory online communities. My favorite game of all time is Chrono Trigger, which ironically enough is a JRPG but its one that I consider untouchable in quality. The runner-up for my favorite game of all time would be Star Fox 64.
