Microsoft’s Xbox Live has long been one of the most popular social gaming services available on consoles. In June 2013, the Games with Gold program started, giving gamers subscribed to Xbox Live the ability to download and play full Xbox 360 titles for as long as they were subscribed to Xbox Live. In June 2014, the program was expanded to Xbox One.
While the program has had its ups and downs, a lot of the offerings lately have been more on the down side of the curve. That looks to change, at least for January, as there’s a couple great titles to be had for free!
