Let's assume that GwG is only lasting until the year is up, nothing about them restarting it afterward.

So, we had Fable 3, Now we have some arcade game, and then Assasin's Creed 2.

After that we have... 10 games? My lists arent complete but here's my start.

I think the games will be:

Forza 3
Halo 3
Mass Effect 1
Modern Warfare 2
Midnight Club LA
Fallout 3

Games we will NOT get IMO:

Any Call of Duty after MW2.
Forza 4
Halo 4
Any EA game
Grand Theft Auto 4

Games I would love to get:

Kingdoms of Amalur (want to play it again, but not buy it again)
Fallout NV (same as above)

Also why did they choose Fable 3 over 2?

Hopefully the Resident evil games.
Still need to get CV. Then I'd complete my RE on xbox360 collection.

ALSO......silent Hill HD.

And throw in GGXXACP+ since it's not worth it without the add on.

Games already on it:

Fable 3
Defense Grid

Games they mentioned by name:

Halo 3
Assassin's Creed 2

Games that they could put up, but would piss people off:

Viva Pinata
Fuzion Frenzy 2

Games that they published which they might put up:

Mass Efffect 1
Gears of War
Gears of War 2
Perfect Dark Zero
Ninety Nine Nights

Actually, there's a big list there.

I think the best determining factor for what games might go up would be the following:

1. A game enough out of it's sales cycle or production that giving it away free won't hurt profitability on new software.

2. A game that also has some DLC so that even giving it away free may generate some revenue from DLC sales if someone decides they like it enough to buy DLC.

That makes Gears of War 2 a bit of a stronger candidate (maybe Gears 3, too...if they want to go with a popular title). Perfect Dark Zero and Ninety Nine Nights don't really have much, if any DLC. Kameo has a bit. Mass Effect has a couple of pieces as well (but I forget if MS published those or if EA did...but that might not matter, I can see EA being cool with making extra DLC money)

They could do Forza 2...which would be smart if they wanted to increase the appetite for the new one coming out on the next console.

I also think that any 3rd Party games would probably use the same criteria as the 1st Party games, being out of sale-cycle and having DLC already in the store.

I really hope they don't do too much in XBLA games. Even if they limit games to 2011 and back, that's still a 6 year span of titles to choose from that would meet the 2-point criteria....and it would make them look a lot more generous than giving away something like Undertow.
I don't hate you. I wouldn't push you into the path of a moving train. I just don't like you; so I wouldn't pull you out of the way, either.

Crysis 2
