No AAA games
Sony fans felt expressed their disappointment that no AAA PS Plus free games were given even as rumors surfaced recently that Assassin?s Creed Black Flag will included in the free deals. There was?also a lack of free big games this September 2015 aside from Twisted Metal (PS3) as Sony offered mainly indie titles again including Grow Home (PS4), Super Time Force Ultra (PS4) , Xeodrifter (PS4/PS Vita), Teslagrad (PS4), and La Mulana EX (PS Vita).
@PlayStation you think to give a AAA game?? I am very disappointed with the PS plus games in recent months, and many people think like me…

@PlayStation I have noticed a lack of AAA titles for PS Plus members (free games). Will there be big titles for members again?
