Microsoft’s Game Pass service offers exceptional value for the money. While some may initially be apprehensive about the idea of having their game collection linked to a subscription, subscribers gain access to a vast selection of games, from indie gems to blockbuster titles, for a remarkably affordable monthly fee.

With an impressive range of incredible titles to choose from, it can be daunting to decide which ones are worth a player’s time.

Since the subscription fee covers the cost of entry, the most important consideration is how to best use your hard drive space.

Fortunately, the gems in this collection stand out. Here’s a look at some of the best games available on Xbox Game Pass.

This list will also include games available on EA Play, which is included with a Game Pass Ultimate subscription.

In the recent time, we have yet another Resident Evil remake has been added to our Xbox Game Pass library. While RE3 may not be as celebrated as the RE2 remake, it’s still a polished and enjoyable experience for fans of the series. In this installment, players take on the role of Jill Valentine as Raccoon City plunges into a zombie-filled nightmare.

Similar to how Mr. X relentlessly pursued Leon Kennedy and Claire Redfield, Jill is relentlessly hunted by her own T-Virus creation, Nemesis.

Nemesis is an imposing and persistent threat that players must carefully navigate around, as his presence demands full attention in order to survive.

Resident Evil 3 is frequently knocked for its brevity, but this can be viewed as a strength. There are times when we don’t crave a game that stretches on for dozens of hours; what we want is a polished, intense experience that doesn’t overstay its welcome.

Resident Evil 3 fits that bill perfectly. And the best part? You don’t need to fret about whether the game justifies its time commitment—it’s all part of the Game Pass offering!

Looking at the user’s excitement towards the game, we can say that Palworld is still in early access on Xbox Game Pass, and has recently faced some controversy due to allegations of “plagiarism” and “copycat designs.”

Despite these issues, Palworld provides a fresh take on the familiar formula found in Pokémon games.

It’s a survival game that blends resource crafting, base-building, and the taming and utilization of “Pals.”

What truly sets Palworld apart is its sense of humor and its direct examination of the quirks often found in Pokémon games.

In Palworld, players will find themselves not only engrossed in the game’s deep mechanics, such as resource gathering, Pal collecting, and boss fighting, but also amused by the quirky Pal descriptions, strange NPC encounters, and whimsical design choices.

While Palworld may not be the most polished title available on Game Pass, it is undoubtedly one of the most enjoyable, in a distinctively unhinged manner.
