Love It Or Hate It: Path of Exile
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?
Boy, did you guys have a lot to say about League of Legends! It received a Love It Or Hate It-record 1,155 votes, and tied Smite for the smallest percentage of "meh" votes, at 22.8%.
And it looks like the old girl's still got legs. 53.9% of you gave it a "Love It" vote versus just 23.3% "Hate It"s. If you're keeping track Dota 2 was 47.7% loved while Smite was 69.6% loved. We'll get around to Heroes of the Storm someday, we promise!
For this week, we'll present something a game that, quite honestly, I don't know that I've ever heard a bad thing about. Grinding Gear Games' Path of Exile seems to have great ARPG gameplay and the gosh-darned nicest cash shop around. Who could hate that? Someone, I'm sure...
