Including me. So I did.

Stats counted and reviewed as at December 19th. I’ll update the final counts by December 31st, 2022.
The list is manually compiled, so human error may occur. A few games might have weird functional duplicates, like Death’s Door which has separate Xbox and PC versions. I’ve tried to remove them all
9 console games on Game Pass in 2022 have keyboard and mouse support. Now you know.
