Love It Or Hate It: ArcheAge
Some free-to-play games are more polarizing than others, with some sides taking the stance of "great, totally non-exploitative implementation" and others thinking "total pay-to-win trash." We'd like to see on what side of the spectrum the gaming public -- and by that, we mean you guys -- think of certain F2P games, and so we've invented something new called Love It Or Hate It?
Every week, we'll present a new F2P game and give you the option of passing judgment on it. Then we'll look back at it the next week and see what people thought. There are no prizes, except for the satisfaction of knowing you clicked on a button and made something happen. Really, what else do you need?
Last week, Dota 2 got a slightly better response than Hearthstone, but not by much. 48% of you voted to love it, 17% to hate it, and 36% were indifferent. Still, that's a generally positive trend, if nearly half of all voters gave it the thumbs-up.
We'll put your positive thinking to the test this week, though, with a game that's seen its fair share of controversy since its launch: ArcheAge. At the very least, we don't expect to see nearly as many "Meh" responses this time around!
Pros: Open-world sandbox, beautiful graphics, intricate crafting system.
Cons: Mundane combat, extremely grindy for non-patrons, way too many missteps in localization.
So what do you think? Yea or nay for ArcheAge? As always, feel free to leave a comment to let us know why you voted the way you did!
