Love It Or Hate It: Loadout
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?
Whoops, that was a little embarrassing. I just spaced out last week on Love It or Hate It, forgetting I hadn't posted a new one until Friday. So Dungeons & Dragons Online got a little longer in the spotlight, but the response was still lukewarm. 28% said Love It (versus 25% for LOTRO), 20% Hate It (23%), and 52% were meh, matching LOTRO's percentage.
While researching the Top 10 F2P Games On Consoles piece, I was a little surprised to find Loadout be as popular as it was. I never played it myself, thinking it to be a little too Team Fortress 2-ish for my tastes, but it's very well-received on Steam and Metacritic, so maybe there's more to it than I thought. What do you think?
