Free to Play games worth trying?

#1XBrosephPosted 8/22/2014 7:14:25 AM
For some reason I have been avoiding these games like the plague but today I ask myself why? Why should I not try these games? Even if they do turn out to be crap it is not like it is costing me anything to try them out, so that being said what are some Free to Play games you feel are worth checking out?

Unless your time has no value whatsoever, wasting it on F2P crap does incur a cost to you. You could be doing something better with that time, like having actual fun playing games that are not designed around pissing you off until you're willing to pay money to stop being so pissed off.

Infinity Wars is a really good card TCG that will give you a ton of free cards

i'm really enjoying robocraft. lots of fun trying to design something that won't immediately crash at launch and then pitting it against a bunch of other people in a death match.

DOTA 2 is one of the best games in the last couple of years and is free.

Path of Exile is good

Loadout is ok

League of Legends is good but the F2P model isn't the best

TF2 is obvious

Free-to-play games are great because they allow you to test the game out before you invest into it. I always wonder where demos have gone.

Good F2P games:
Starcraft 2 (with restrictions), Vindictus, TF2, League of Legends, Planetside 2.

I'm not sure what you mean but I think LoL has one of the best F2P models. There is almost no advantage to be had by paying. But yet Riot (the company behind LoL) has other non-disruptive ways to make money, like cosmetics and exp and money boosts.
