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?
Maybe it shouldn't have come as a huge surprise, but as positive as people had been about Hearthstone and Dota 2, we thought a little of that residual good feeling would bleed over into ArcheAge. That, or maybe you'd all just gone soft on us, you bunch of rose-colored-glasses-wearing fanboys and fangirls.
Not so much. Only 14% of you reported as loving it, with 42% in the hating it camp. 44% preferred to remain neutral; like me, we just like having our popcorn and watching the train wreck -- I mean, show.
This week's game: Wargaming's armored juggernaut World of Tanks.
Pros: Great competitive aspects, vast variety of fighting vehicles.
Cons: Rather grindy at high tiers, premium ammo was essentially pay-to-win.
So what do you think? Yea or nay for World of Tanks? As always, feel free to leave a comment to let us know why you voted the way you did!
