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’s game was Trion World’s Defiance, which not surprisingly got a noncommittal “meh” from nearly half of respondents. I like it, but it’s a bit of a “niche” game that suffered from a rough launch. Still, once you play it, it looks like you like it, with 37% voting in the positive versus just 14% negative votes.
This week, it’s another game that had a difficult start but has found its stride since, Gazillion’s Marvel Heroes 2015!
Pros: Various gameplay modes, frequent new content, great comic-book feel
Cons: Extensive cash shop, typical ARPG grind
