Title says it all. So many free to play titles actually resorted to predatory practices over the years aimed at the especially vulnerable, that laws were passed somewhere along the line, although aimed at the wrong crowd and actually damaging more legitimate developers. Whats everyones stance on it?
I recall most everyone to watch this series, or many do, but I wanted to bring this up here because of just how bad of a reputation free to play has gotten over the years. From "Pay to win" to general predatory tactics(often, a combination of the two), free to play became dark and infamous that now laws are starting to creep up specifically aimed at such games.
Edit: I also wanted to bring this up because of how a certain game I played(and mentioned it's main problems here before) had gone down such a path of generally predatory behavior. And then a few days ago this video was posted.
I realized something today(5/8/2014) that many MMORPG players, are not like us who enjoyed CoX. They enjoy repetitiveness and predictability, rather then unpredictability. We on the other hand enjoy unpredictability and variety.
