Two Free Games a month for Xbox Live Gold members RANT!

Hey Guys, Microsoft announced during E3 that Xbox Live Gold members will be receiving two free games a month. However, this only lasts up until the Xbox One release. Now let me get this straight, two free games a month up until the Xbox One releases? That doesn't sound bad, right? Wrong!
First of all, Microsoft first announced Assassin's Creed 2 and Halo 3 will be free. Whatever happened to that? Currently, Fable 3 is the only free game provided to Xbox Live Gold Members. However, it has already been confirmed that Assassin's Creed 2 will be free next month. This isn't the only reason why this two free games a month is getting me angry. Another reason is the release of the games. According to the Xbox website, the games will release on the 1st and 16th of each month. It's June 20th and still no other free game has been announced. I hope this is a one time error, so I'm not too mad over this. Now, my MAIN reason why I'm angry over this deal are the games themselves. I already own Assassin's Creed 2 and Halo 3. About every Xbox 360 owner has the game already! Why not put in brand new games or put games that are under-the-radar, but are good? I just find it a waste of time for Microsoft to be making games free even though most people might already own the game.

I don't know about you guys, but I'm not too satisfied about this deal. If Microsoft was so thankful about everyone joining Xbox Live, why not make NEW games free. I don't care if they just add ONE new game free. I just want to have a $60 game for FREE. Maybe Microsoft can give deals to Xbox Live Members on the Xbox One!
Till Next Time!!
