Most of you know how this turned out, but since it's a holiday week I'll share Part 1:
Now that I'm an #XboxSeriesX owner, I'm fantasizing about creating a regular column/video series about using JUST GamePass.
What would it be like to play NOTHING BUT GamePass games for a year? I'm honestly not sure I can commit to it, but I am fascinated by the idea...
I kinda love the idea of a curated batch of games delivered to you every month, that you get to OWN forever.
It requires some trust in the curators, though. What does everyone think about this? (It's now $99 annually)
How 10 Seconds With An #XboxSeriesX Made Me Want To Quit PC Gaming: https://openforeveryone.net/articles/xbox-series-x-quit-pc-gaming/
"It started innocuously enough. Most of my recent PC gaming adventures do before they inexplicably snowball into a hellscape of technical misfortune. I simply wanted to play some @Halo@twitter.com Infinite multiplayer on my PC."
What could go wrong? 🤣
So this happened.
In less than 48 hours, http://OpenForEveryone.net has raked in 3000 views, basically off the back of two new articles.
I consider that a huge success -- and yes, probably more traffic than I'd even get at Forbes these days.
Thanks for staying on this evolving journey with me <3
The hottest phone on @Amazon@twitter.com right now is only $20.
Nope, I didn't forget a zero! Guess there's a craving to go back to a simpler time!

A fitting footnote to this story:
Tonight I logged in to play @Halo@twitter.com Infinite on PC, but the game's Fracture event (which I've progressed in) doesn't even show up! (Yes, I updated the game).
@DarthChillash@twitter.com logged me in on his Xbox Series X, and it WAS on that version, sooo
This Fracture event in #HaloInfinite multiplayer is brilliant. Especially the Fiesta playlist. Here's why:
1) MORE SLAYER! HELL YES!
2) Ample opportunity to earn more XP
3) By randomizing weapons at spawn, we learn how to effectively use new weapons in the armory!
It only took 10 seconds with an @Xbox@twitter.com Series X to make me seriously contemplate quitting PC gaming.
This one's dedicated to my friend @DarthChillash@twitter.com.
