I wonder if both Sony and Microsoft are making fun of us with their monthly free games.
The PlayStation Network Plus, and the Xbox Live are online services provided respectively by Sony and Microsoft. For a monthly fee, you have access to the online multiplayer modes, you have some discounts on digital version of games, and little extra here and there. But the most famous aspect of these services is that every month, Sony and Microsoft propose 4-6 free games for their consoles.
Of-course don't expect the latest AAA game to be in the list of these free games. But it used to be great. With very nice games, a few years old. Honestly, it was really good. But, over the years, the quality of the games offered greatly decreased and I doubt anyone is really pleased by the monthly selection! Are you ?

Seriously, a subscription to the PSN or XBox live is less than $10/mo and you get 3-4 games each months, this is a great deal. Nothing to complain about.

For the price of new game (~60/70€) you can get 24 games, and among them a good number are block busters from the previous years. I think this is still a very good deal.

I did not renew my subscription to the PSN+ without regret. It was great for years, but it's no longer what it uses to be. I prefer to save my money, to buy games during special sales and promotions. There are really good deals at the PlayStation Store!
