and if they lowered their budgets I guarantee people would find a way to complain.

...So? That's run of the mill. Customers don't know what they want until you offer it to them.
There's been studies on this.

These freemium games are a blight on gaming. I think it's largely spurred on in the mobile sector, by non-gamers who get sucked into these things, like gambling, and end up paying tons. My hope...hope...is that it is a passing fad and everyone will wise up and stop supporting these obvious cash grab games.

If EVERYONE stops supporting this nonsense, it will go away.

Paymium is just a stupid term, but it simply highlights industry greed and how the concept hurts game design at large. And to the other poster - yes DLC is still an issue. Especially Day one DLC.

Expansions are and have always been fine.
