I hate it when the company creating F2P games implements purchasable features that give those who have purchased these features such a great advantage that you almost cannot compete.

I only play BF P4F, it's fun and pretty good balance between pay and free. But it's really slow with new content release, mostly cause EA won't break their budget to hire more devs.

I also played Planetside2, great game too but it wasn't my style in the end.

Tried few other P4F games and most of them required money to really enjoy, either the grind was too much or weapons were OP.

I would rather just buy a game rather than just buy stuff through micro transactions, The only f2p I've ever enjoyed is TF2 but even that ive got bored of quickly.

If you're asking straight up, do I like free to play games (in general) yes, I like them, they can be nice. Although well-designed indie games I have no problem spending money on. If it's a good game, it deserves to make a little money

Namco did a great job on Tekken Revolution though

I've always been a believer in the subscription MMO, but I play a couple of f2P games: MechWarrior Online, World of Tanks (I'm beta testing the 360 version now), and Last Stand: Dead Zone.

I tend to dislike F2P games because 1) so many developers try to shoehorn it onto games that it doesn't work with, 2) (maybe because of point 1) so very many of those developers basically break their own game and expect you to pay to make it playable or otherwise implement unfair, draconian, or even outright greedy microtansactions, and 3) it's too easy to fall into the trap of point 2.

I like the F2P particularily when everything can eventually also be bought without spending money if you just spend enough time. Like in LoL or Spiral Knights for example. That model suits me good.

Some of them are amazing... And really make me want to spend a few dollars. I think the games by Nimblebits are prime examples of how these games are done well... On the other hand if you want to play the worst example of a free to play game I suggest downloading Dungeon Hunter 4 by Gameloft.... this is what is killing free to play.

I would love this game much more if you added the original rival music from the regular Pokemon Black and White

The main problem are the PvP oriented Free To Play.
Some rare PvP F2Ps are good but a lot of them give people who pay such an advantage compared to the "free players" that it becomes totally unfair and not fun at all.
-> "Some of them require a lot of money to enjoy which sucks"

I like p2p games because I feel safer with then. There are more banning around and I feel like I won't have to meet someone with tons of pay to win items any soon. Free to Play games were they put a balance on their cash shop are totally fine. However I feel cheated when I play a game were its advertised to be free but most features are paid, no this ins't free, this just have a 'trial' on then.
