ID@Xbox Summer Game Fest Demo Event: Here are all the games to try

(Image credit: Microsoft)

The ID@Xbox Summer Game Fest demo event is live now, bringing a selection of more than 70 games to try for free to your Xbox console.

The weeklong event began today and will run through July 27, with more and more demos steadily appearing as the selection gets rolling. All you need to do to play them is head to your Xbox Dashboard and find the game demos section, download your favorites, and jump in.

You have 74 games to pick from just to get started, which may be enough to give you a serious case of analysis paralysis. Personally, I'd recommend you start with either Skatebird or Panzer Paladin; the former because it's a game about an adorable skateboarding bird, and the latter because it's a game about a robot piloting a bigger robot from the makers of Flinthook.
