It may be hard to believe, but it's been nearly two years since Microsoft launched Game Pass. In that time it's grown into one of the strongest services Microsoft currently offer, and in 2019, it's better than ever. Month after month, huge games are added to Game Pass, with some notable head-turners this gen being Monster Hunter: World and Just Cause 4.

Currently sitting at over 100 games available, Game Pass is stacked with AAA talent. Both the entire Halo series and Gears of War series are available, which in itself is enough of a selling point for some. You may get pulled in with such big names, but it's the smaller, overlooked titles that will make the subscription fee more than worth it.

Nothing is more satisfying than finding a new game that you can't wait to tell friends about, and thanks to the ever growing library available, it's now easier than ever.

This is the perfect way for gamers to branch out and try titles they might otherwise miss. With such a massive selection however, it's almost impossible to expect someone to be able to try every single game the service offers, which is where I come in.

2016's Hitman was a return to form for the series. Returning from the divisive Absolution are living and breathing worlds that present you with a puzzle and all the freedom in the world to solve it. This series is known for giving you a target and setting you loose to silently - or not so silently - take that target down, and this game more than delivers on that front.

The massive maps, extensive ways to go about assassinating a target and massive collection of toys to do it with make this one of the most replayable games in recent memory. You can sink hours upon hours simply on one map, as you find target routes and weaknesses in security.

Hitman is a game with an absolutely remarkable amount of content, and if you've somehow managed to overlook it, it should be the next game on your radar without question.
