Love It Or Hate It: The Lord of the Rings Online
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?
Well, that went about as expected. We get it, you guys love Path of Exile: An overwhelming 74.3% voted Love, versus just 4.6% voting for Hate. #LoveWins
This week, I'd like to all to give your thoughts on the MMO that -- if you've been listening to our podcasts -- was my MMO of choice for years, The Lord of the Rings Online. Turbine's flagship MMO has been through a lot in its eight years of existence, and I for one am not in love with it as much as I used to be, but I'll be really interested to see what the rest of you think. Humor me.
Tell us what you think of Path of Exile, and leave a comment below to expound upon your views!
