    You know that's about the price of 3 subscription games for 6 months, right?

    Yeah...3, not 1. IDK anyone who plays 3 at once though personally.

    Well, we can't be sure how much is cash shop. It seems the only money some of the people have spent was for the game client only. Of the $300 (est.) I've spent in the last six months, $100 was on monthly subscription fees. Another $90 was spent on game clients, and finally I spent over $100 on cash shop items.

    If $300 in 6 months is a sickening amount to spend on a hobby.....he needs to get a better job. Considering the number of hours even casuals play in that time. $50 a month is still nothing.

    Movies always put this into perspective. $13 for 2 hrs vrs how much for a whole month ? The cost of a movie is sickening :P yet I go to them all the time.

    And some of us use patience and wait for them to come to Redbox. I'd rather be disappointed for $1 than $13.

    $300 if used on 1 game is pretty bad (F2P with Cash shop). If distributed amongst many games, well...that is a different story. Many here read too much into things so ready to argue. Guess I could of explained it better as well.

    It's observation based on amounts shown for most.

    Where does your "most" come from?  20 or so unique thread responses that didn't even indicate whether or not the money they spent was in cash shop games?  Are you sure you didn't just see a value that's quite large to you, think I hate F2P games with cash shops, and then, to justify your own dislike of the model, attribute that value to cash shops without actually having any clue whether or not that's where it came from?

    That's not following where the evidence leads you; that's adjusting the evidence in your own mind to suit your own conclusions.  

    But that was only your minor offense.  

    Undoubtedly there are people who spend that much money on F2P games (one or multiple) over a 6 month period.  But according to every study available by every game company that has kept track of which users purchase what, these people are in the extreme minority.  And that's the beauty of good f2p models.  That a very small portion of players who have the disposable income available to throw at video games and other means of entertainment, may do so, while the vast majority of players can be more frugal with their gaming habit and ultimately spend significantly less than they would if the game had a sub fee.

    1. GW2, Forsaken World, Aion, Tera (nothing really hooks me)

    2. WoW and GW1

    3. I would eliminate/change GW2 and create GW continue x-packs + make all these games up to date (add crafting, AH, housing, make them open world, give more skills to use (but keep skill choose system), add more dungeons and finder tool...oh well GW games got a great potential but dead...

    4. about 100$, last 6 months I did nothing much, as can't find good game to play.

    5. I would use fantasy books (are really many of them) or create my own world.

    try before buy, even if it's a game to avoid bad surprises.
    Worst surprises for me: Aion, GW2

    None.  I hate adaptations.  They always disappoint.  I want a brand new, totally original, huge sci-fi MMO with nothing that even remotely resembles magic anywhere in it.

    Yes, I know it will never happen.
