Pay to pay vs. Free to play mmo’s a short thought..

free play

Well this gaming concept that I realized was out there, was basically confirmed by JP and Hinano during their NYAF panel. I did take some notes for my con report, so I summed it up there.

After the con, as I spoke with my friend Maewen and she said in a pretty much dead pan voice that “Free to Play” games MMO’s SUCKED.. of course I started to lol.. I recall in the past how she said she hated all the money she dumped into Aeria games and for nothing, so yes – I see my friend going somewhere with her gaming.

Soooo… Yes… on the computer, I am pretty much a causal gamer.. and yet I can’t help, but feel pretty tempted by the goods you can get if you can play them. I got swayed to throw money so far on Freerealms.com, and Pet society.. and I like… need to play.. >_< Must get cute things.. I actually think that Pet Society would be something my friend would like to play, but she hasn’t got started on that yet actually.

This is a random entry, have a lot of semi-drafted entries out, so what would you think? Still waiting on a post entry to be placed onto Yoroshiku, Kairu did mention something like a natural disaster hitting where he is. >_<

    I’ll never pay a subscription fee to play an MMO. Guild Wars (GW) revolutionized MMO payment system by offering free to play experience that is much better than World of Warcraft (well, there are some limits, but they will be fixed in GW2) – you just have to buy a campaign just like you would any other single player game. People thought that it would never work, but it did. GW is the most interesting game I played on any system.

    Well, it’s not really that I feel it’s for nothing. It’s just that if I measure up all the money I dumped into DOMO and all the money I dumped into WoW, WoW is way more worth it. DOMO and all those other free to play games aren’t really that fun after a couple of weeks of seeing and doing everything and just devolve into glorified chat clients and paper doll simulators (costumes <3).

    WoW, however, is still fun for me months later. Maybe this is because I started only last year, so I have, like, four years worth of content waiting for me, though XD

    I like Guild Wars, too, but I still like WoW more. Bigger world, flying, masses of people available for drive-by healing and buffing. I don't think GW2 will change my, "I like WoW the most," thought because I'm already too entrenched, but I still look forward to it.

    As an aside, Aion Guild Wars wings are not as cool as I thought they would be. Oh well, free is free…ish XD

    Now, Ntreev, all *that* money was for nothing. Might as well just rebrand themselves as an online casino than an MMO publisher.
