Love It Or Hate It: Star Wars: The Old Republic
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, we asked your opinion on the massive open-world shooter PlanetSide 2, which has gone through its trials and tribulations during its 2.5 years on the market -- not to mention new some significant new management. Still, folks seem still seem to be in love with the game and all its pretty explosions, giving it a 48% "Love It" and only 12% "Hate It." I'm guessing those 12% are people who ragequit after a scrub like me actually managed to kill them.
I feel like we've been on too much of a lovefest recently with Love It Or Hate It games, so let's put that to the test with a game sure to evoke some strong reactions -- and one I've been waiting for the right moment to put out there since I started this -- Star Wars: The Old Republic. This should be good.
Pros: Individualized stories for each class, Huttball is cool, and it's Star Wars!
Cons: Mostly routine MMO gameplay, oh, and maybe some people don't like the cash shop?
