Iâ€™m not a fan of free-to-play. Never have been, itâ€™s unlikely I ever will be and, to be perfectly honest, my mind boggles as to why itâ€™s so popular. OK, I get the money aspect of subscriptions but letâ€™s be realistic here, itâ€™s not as if F2P really is free. You still pay one way or another, probably the same amount as a sub eventually, quite likely even more. I mean, even before I could play a game like Everquest 2 or Age of Conan Iâ€™d have to shell out for the race and class that I prefer.
