Generally speaking, the Xbox Free Games with Gold program has been unpopular in recent years. This is mainly due to the fact that Microsoft has switched its attention from promoting the promotion to promoting the Xbox Game Pass subscription service. However, it seems that Xbox Live Gold subscribers are mostly happy with the September line-up, and Portal 2 is considered a worthy way to say goodbye to the Xbox 360 side of the program.
Portal 2 was one of the highest rated Xbox 360 games ever released for that console. It has received critical acclaim for thoughtful puzzles, the development of the Portal formula and an exciting humorous plot. This is certainly one of the most popular games that have been distributed as part of the Games with Gold program in recent years, and therefore its inclusion in the lineup in September 2022 was highly appreciated by many subscribers.
