If something is free your either going to wind up paying too much for it, or it's not worth anything.
I have been reading quite a lot about how F2P could replace traditional subs and I'm going to let you guys in on a little secret. You really don't want that to happen. It sounds like your going to get to play a game for free, never fork over any cash and just love every second of it. Sorry, that is NOT going to happen.
These companies can sometimes employ up to hundreds of people that have familes to support. They don't work for free the same as you wouldn't work for free. Someone has to pay up and eventually, if you do get hooked, that will be you. Oh, and saying you won't get hooked doesn't work either. If your reading something on MMORPG your probably already familiar with being hooked on some mmo at some point so don't even try that silly argument. You know it can happen.
So lets say you do get hooked. Well then instead of a measly $15 a month (if your cheap and only pay 1 month at a time / who does that?!) Your going to get nickle and dimed to death. I'll give you an example.
My best friend Steve (that's his real name too!) stoped playing WoW because he said it cost to much. Blah blah blah $15 a month for those Aholes who are already rich Blah Blah Blah. He went off to play some F2P game . Well, after much nudging he came back after about a year, but he said the reason he came back was because when he figured up all the $2-$5 purchases he made, he was spending an average of $50 a month!!
Don't buy into the F2P. Avoid it, beat it off with a stick, it's a zombie irl. Pony up $15 for a month and give it a shot. If you love it, then great, the entertainment is cheap. If you hate it, $15 for 30 days is still sooooo cheap. You can't buy that kind of entertainment anywhere. Not at a strip club, not at a movie theater. Not driving around town because your bored since you don't have anything to do because you didn't want to spend a couple of bucks and enjoy your free time.
STOP BEING SO DAMN CHEAP! Your huring yourself.
FYI, no i don't work for any game companies.
