They're garbage. I'd rather pay $60 for a complete game

I think they can be OK if done right. Dust 514 has been pretty good so far.

Depends entirely on the game. Some are good, some are bad.

Also need more information. How do they handle microtransactions, is it pay to win, etc.

I asked God for a bike, but I know God doesn't work that way. So I stole a bike and asked for forgiveness.

All console F2P games are gutter trash.

Path of Exile on the other hand is amazing. The only thing you can buy with real money are aesthetics.

This is the ONLY (acceptable) answer.

Garbage. Too many of them, outrageously overpriced downloadable content.

Games like Jetpack Joyride on PS3/PSVita, and Treasures of Montezuma Blitz on Vita are great. I've put numerous hours into both of these and haven't spent a dime.

I can't speak on other F2P games, but those I mentioned good examples of F2P games that you can get a lot of gameplay out of without spending money.

Love them jetpack joyride and TMZ like the other person said are done well.

Also for MMOs they need micro-transactions.... so people need to stop crying about it.
As long as it is just costumes or equipment that can be found in game. If it is some exclusive weapon that is super overpowered then it would be unfair.

I think people just like complaining on here about everything.

85%+ odds they will suck in the end.

Really aren't many F2P games that are good, partially because the game itself.

MOSTLY because the community within is comprised of the same general level of "human" as on this site.
