Xbox has created a classic Xbox 360 game that is free to all Xbox Live Gold subscribers except the December Games With Gold line. In other words, it’s a bonus gift, but it requires jumping through some hoops while the game, Ikaruga, was made free through Xbox Live Gold Argentina, which means you’ll need to create an Argentina account, but it doesn’t cost anything. If it’s not too complicated, you’ll be happy to know that there are a lot of similar offers out there right now.
Currently, through the Japanese Xbox Store, the following games are free for Xbox Live Gold subscribers: Zodiac children, by Blob 2, Stacking, and the mouth. In South Korea, Steredenn: binary stars is free. And in Taiwan, The king’s bird is free. Of course, as you read this some, if not all, of these offers may have expired. That said, keep in mind that you will need to be signed in to your Xbox Live Gold account to view the offer, otherwise the games will be listed at their normal price. Meanwhile, if you haven’t subscribed to Xbox Live Gold, you’re just out of luck.
Several GWG titles are still available in some regions and a few are alternate GWG titles as well. Refer to my image below for their links and names. pic.twitter.com/fvBAlXZqu5

Of course, each game above is playable on all three modern Xbox consoles – regardless of platform – via backward compatibility. That said, when you download these games, note that they are attached to your subscription. If your subscription expires, you will lose access to these and all other games downloaded for free through Xbox Live Gold until you re-subscribe. In other words, these are glorified rentals, but technically this is how any digital game property works.
