I can't believe I'm saying this but I want to give a Da-Bomb to Nexon for how they have been doing with their latest games like Dirty Bomb and Ghost in the Shell: SAC First Assault. They've just been doing well this season. I mean look at the Early Access packs for the latter, they're so cheap with the most expensive one at 30$. The devs for both games have just taken an active role with communicating with the community, especially with Dirty Bomb.

My opinion on in game holiday events... I like having them around, even if it's just for the option being there for RP or just to mess around with it. I too am one who has to do it if there's a pet, mount, toy or dimension item involved, but a lot of times if there's nothing there for me I don't do a whole lot with them. I do have a couple of events I really enjoy, one is Brewfest in WoW, mostly because of Dvira my alcoholic rogue, the other major one being RIFT's Autumn Harvest because... Atrophinius... my favorite npc, he always has the best dialogue and even if there isn't anything I want from the event I have to do some of it just to hear his candor.

F2P MMO of 2015 for me would be TERA. You had the expansion released at the very end of 2014, which was quite a bit of content to play into 2015. There were 2 new classes added in the Gunner and Brawler. A few new dungeons released in 2015 as well, along with updates on seasonal events. All of this content is free, too. So kudos to En Masse for continuing to keep things humming along.

Well, my free to play of 2015 is Wildstar. I love the boss mechanics and funny voices, like Avatus, that have both of them. :)
