Overall, we’re looking at $69+ in value, which is slightly inferior to the $94 value for this month’s Games with Gold lineup (mostly thanks to Forza Motorsport 5 Game of the Year Edition). Price doesn’t equal quality though, and all these games (especially Gone Home) have received positive reviews. Let us know in the comments which of these games you’re most excited to play next month.Further reading: Games with Gold, Video Games, Xbox 360, Xbox One
