Martin Gaston - People aren't Stupid




  • Defending free-to-play often makes me think that I'm a member from the NRA sounding off on gun control: free-to-play doesn't make games bad, people make games bad.
    Despite a tremendous pile of evidence that regularly suggests the contrary, I opt to believe that individuals aren't stupid. The exploitative free-to-play mobile market could eventually collapse--it must, because we're eventually all about to wise approximately its cheap tricks and play Threes! all some time instead--and we'll be left with free-to-play games POE Currency that feel fair. The new Dungeon Keeper sucks.
        The free-to-play element actually makes it more enjoyable
    But, overall, in relation to free-to-play I say don't panic. I think free-to-play could work. I don't think they have for being sleazy and awful. Dota 2 is truly one of my favorite games ever, and I may go so far as to say how the free-to-play element actually makes it more enjoyable. Especially in terms of its seasonal events, with Valve vomiting a whole load of holiday-themed new items that you may buy and gamble for. I can read through my in-game backpack and recall when I acquired these things--which is the sword I got from your crate during The International 2012, what a courier I earned last Frostivus, etc--and trigger a flood with all the different real-life memories that come in conjunction with these recollections. It's nice.
    It's not free, needless to say. I've spent a minimum of $110 on Dota 2 already. But I've also played it for 550 hours, and spent countless more watching tournaments, in order that feels fine. And it also Path of Exile Currency depends upon what type of game you create, too: a narrative-driven single-player adventure should still cost $60 and come over a disc and everything that. But within the right context, free-to-play works. When it works, it can make gaming a richer, more diverse, and interesting hobby to own.
    Now all we must do is wait for everyone the awful free-to-play games to search extinct.
