As the MMOBomb team was winding down after a long week of exploring what Gamescom 2014 had to offer, the team decided it was time to take to the show floor and see what kinds of Free-to-Play games European players were actually enjoying.

There was just one problem, absolutely no one on the team had even the slightest idea how to speak German. Given that Gamescom is set in Cologne, Germany, you can see how this might have been an issue. Undeterred, Spunkify set out to cross language and cultural barriers in order to bring back some truly…interesting responses from the community.

  1. What’s with all the people bashing their english here? Most don’t use it in their daily life and if someone just asked them about free to play games out of the blue it’s understandable that they can’t answer perfectly.

    Also, free to play games don’t seem to be that popular in germany especially since the Gamescom wasn’t really focused on f2p games. Most just are for League of Legends there.

  2. Goddamnit, I LIVE in this country full of people who can’t even talk english nor know the difference between shooters and MMORPG’s or free and subscription based games.
    I apologise for these people, although the girls you guys were talking to ofcourse were the ones getting paid for looking pretty, not having a brain and actualy answer questions about games :P.
    Hope you guys had fun in Cologne! 😀

    • Uneducated??? Do you speak German? English is a Germanic languages and you don’t speak it?? Who’s uneducated ? Only 30% of Earth’s population speaks english. Who’s uneducated?

    • “spek it” ? I don’t know where you little shit come from but get your fact’s straight Germany is one of the most Advanced Country’s of the world. And without Germany so much wouldn’t be possible.

      Now who is uneducated ?

      • Yes they f***ed up the world with 2 World Wars and you THINK THEY HELPED IT? THEY DESTROYED MY COUNTRY (Greece) and YOU THINK THEY HELPED THE WORLD? Ok I don’t blame ordinary people but the truth is that they harmed the world.

  3. i actualy world say none the most free 2 play games are just p2w and im no more playing thet kind of games actualy playing ffxiv and spending lot less in a year then in a f2p…^-^ (more fun because the comunity isnt full with childs and stupid matures xD

  4. whole world is playing League of – “lets buy tank items to win the match” ? waiting for N1 moba in the world – Heroes of the Storm !!!!!

  5. The video kinda speaks for 80% of the Gamescom visitors… I’ve been there on saturday myself and felt somehow a bit in the wrong spot regarding my age and how few actual redbands there were. Lucky for me I guess, I only wanted to try evolve anyways since most of the games I kinda hoped to see weren’t even there.

    The Gamescom felt like a simple cosplay and League of Legends convention to be honest.

  6. So on the end Free to play games are all not free,ari eat ppl and how much did you spend on lol? ooooooooooooooooooooooorrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrggggggggggggggg
