In case you did not know about this, each month Microsoft allows two games to become free for the Xbox Live Gold members. They can download the games both on the Xbox One and the Xbox 360 consoles, but only for a limited period of time. Starting with November 2015, the company made the two games backwards compatible with Xbox One, which means that if you own a current generation console, you can get 4 free games each month. Cool, huh? But the best part is that you get to keep the games even if you quit the Xbox Live Gold subscription!
