The trend I keep seeing and hearing about from my friends is that a lot of people are playing the Free to Play MMO’s without spending a dime.
Just don’t have the money to pay!
With economy and the way it is I know a lot of people just don’t have the “kicking around cash” that they used to. So maybe there are some people who fall into this category, just not being able to pay for their MMO gaming.
I would have been this gamer in college, but sadly there wasn’t many free to play games back then.
Don’t think the MMO game is worth paying for!
I know there are a lot of people who say these MMO games just are not worth paying for anymore. With the free to play onslaught we have a lot more casual playing going on and an all-out lack of community in some of these games. That seems to lead a lot of people to say these are not worth paying for anymore.
Like a challenge!
Then there are people like me who remember the older games and how they were harder to finish. So playing a free to play game with spending money surly makes the game harder, how much harder is up to the developers.
Don’t like a challenge or paying a MMO sub!
As some us like our MMO games hard, there will be a group that like their game easier. So there will always be people paying for the perks and the easier route in-game. Not that this is bad, we need to support the thing we like or nothing new will come out.
There are still a few subscription based games out there and I know there are some dedicated people playing these games and I no problem with these games if they are supported properly by the development teams. Currently I don’t play any of these, just because I can’t find one that interests me.
So today I ask you, do you play MMO’s without spending any money!
