Here's the deal: Xbox Live lets you play online, access Games with Gold and a range of discounts; Xbox Game Pass gives you access to over 100 games you can play freely for a single subscription. Right now you can sign up for a month of both for a single dollar, or a single pound, and see what all the fuss is about.
The Xbox Live bit should go without saying - that's how you get online and enjoy multiplayer, access each month's Games with Gold, as well as other discounts. Game Pass on the other hand basically gives you access to all the games you'll ever be able play for a single monthly subscription. Its a library of great games you can download and play at will, including all Xbox first party games on day one, as well as a ton of great titles and Xbox classics or back pat titles.
For example Gear 5 is in there, along with Outer Wilds, Life is Strange 2, Rage 2 and so on. Plus there are so many great games like Alien Isolation, Superhot, Dishonored 2, MGS 5 and so many more without even touching on classics like Fable, Mass Effect etc, etc, etc... Basically for a single shiny coin might never need to buy another game.
