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?
You guys really know how to break an old LotRO player's heart, don't you? Last week's results: 25.3% love and 22.8% hate. I'm going to take solace in the fact that a higher percentage of people "hated" League of Legends. But I'm not letting any of you touch my Viggo Mortenson-signed Lord of the Rings CCG card!
For the sake of completeness, let's keep the Turbine train rolling and put Dungeons & Dragons Online up to a vote. Remember in 2009, when DDO went F2P and everyone thought it was a great system? The shine seems to have come off both DDO's and LotRO's monetization in the wake of much "free-er" games, and I'm curious to see how Turbine's top two stack up against each other. Don't worry, we won't run Asheron's Call out there next week.
