Aren't they? They're selling and the gimmick is working, right? Mass Effect 3, FIFA, Madden.

nothing wrong with micros as long as its not pay to win and its not an insane grind otherwise.

ME3 multi is neither. If people want to spend extra, thats their choice.

Micros in ME3 don't make any sense because it requires an on-line pass.

This.

I felt Tiger Woods 13 worked fantastic. If I wanted to buy the extra golf courses, I could.

OR... I could just spend the in-game currency for a few rounds, perfect the course and I unlock it for free.

As much as these boards whine about missing the days of "unlockables" you'd think this would at least be a happy middle ground.

This. I don't know why people act as if it's some evil thing. You know as far back as NFS Carbon I believe you could pay to unlock stuff you could get JUST BY PLAYING THE GAME? Yet people think the ability to do this in these newer games is some awful thing?
