The Xbox Game Pass launched in SA last week and you can now try a 14-day trial of the service. If you are keen to sign up then I can recommend 20 games available through the service that I think you should play first. 

What is Xbox Game Pass

For R159 per month, you get access to over 150 games that range from Xbox One to Xbox 360 games. Every month the service will get a handful of new titles added to the library, and as long as you have an active subscription, you will be able to play them. It is an awesome service for anyone who has just entered the Xbox family, and as soon as the Xbox One X launches in SA, it will mean you have access to hundreds of Xbox One X enhanced games. Well, enough about that, here are 20 games I recommend you try that are available through the service in no specific order.
