May's Games with Gold line-up is leaving a lot to be desired for Xbox users

Xbox Live's Games with Gold has been a welcome addition for subscribers to the service. Each month, Xbox Live Gold subscribers are gifted two Xbox One and two classic Xbox games for free. 

Usually, we get a fairly big-name game or two heading to Games with Gold, a game fans may have missed on its original release.

Therefore, most months Xbox are always very keen to show off what games fans can get their hands on during the month ahead, usually releasing a list of games a few days ahead of the next month beginning.

This time round however, it took Microsoft much longer to officially announce the games coming to Gold this month and it's not hard to see why with the best game on offer looking like a golf game.

In the past few months, we've been treated to some real gifts, with classic Star Wars games like the old Republic Commando and the original Battlefront II, widely regarded as the best Star Wars game ever made.

May 2019 however, is a little underwhelming in comparison. Here's what's in store over the next month, Xbox fans...

There's little doubt that May has been a disappointing month for Games with Gold. At least the games are free, but a solid month with a big-name title is definitely needed in the next month or two.

What do you make of this month's selection Xbox fans?
