Is free to play inherently evil?
baconian posted a topic in Video GamingI started working for Zynga last year, so naturally I started to consider the remote possibility that free-to-play games are not inherently evil. Jon Blow made the point that the limitation of free-to-play mechanics on games was akin to the limitations imposed on 80's sitcoms, it's a great talk you should see; http://the-witness.net/news/2013/11/a-speech-about-free-to-play-game-design/ But it started me thinking that actually as a kid, I did really enjoy the A-team, and is the A-team evil??? Maybe it's only free-to-play games that can never be art - and the sort of cynical consumerist attitude of the games industry as a whole can sort of migrate to that space and let the more traditional pay-to-play games develop and flourish as an art form. Anyone here have any mad opinions on this that will get me re-thinking my life? That's always welcome.
