Poll: are you currently playing a free to play game? (241 votes)

yes 65%
I did, but stopped 12%
no 23%

I was just wondering because I've been playing the best free to play game ever made

pokemon trading card game online

(it's really not it's horrible and pay to win and it sucks I don't know why I keep playing)

but free to play games are the hot new shit or something, so I was just wonderin.

(by the way, by currently I mean you've played it in the last 2 weeks)

Dabbling in Killer Instinct, of all things (I haven't ever been good enough with fighting games to bother). Seems like it has a nice tutorial though. Not sure it's going to go anywhere with me, though.

thinking of touchin wawrfraem, is the community pretty receptive to noobs?

Well, it's pretty ok. There's an incredible amount of things you can do wrong. The game has a laughable tutorial that wastes your time by teaching you how to point your mouse and useless shit like that but fails to even explain basic movement skills. None of the game modes are explained at all and you can really fuck your team up if you don't know what you're doing. That said, the community seemed relatively laid back to me. Got a lot of helpful, friendly players and got screamed at once in dozens of hours (classic "you could've explained what I did wrong in half the words you used to try and insult me" type of shit). The bigger problem are overpowered players that farm low-level areas in coop mode and can leave you hanging fighting impossible odds while they're untouchable and rushing bosses and such. But they simply don't give a shit about you instead of screaming at you in my experience. The game isn't that well balanced for solo play either. Consider watching some tutorials or teaming up with people you know to solve that.

Yeah, been playing that (although I think I'm over it, fun game though) and SolForge which I really like.

I used to play Dust 514, but then I just got annoyed by getting brutally killed by folks with premium gear so I stopped.

#54 Posted by WaspHUN (6 posts) -

Path of Exile, World of Tanks, Warthunder, Star Trek Online... i think that's all for the moment :) Maybe i can say EVE too, because i didn't paid a dime for it since 2011.

I still play TF2 frequently. Tried a few others here and there but nothing has grabbed me in the same way. Also just got into Hearthstone so I'll probably be playing that if I can get over being terrible at TCGs.

Dota. Always Dota

#57 Posted by dungbootle (2454 posts) -

Nah, but I have periodically in the past. I'm barely playing any games at all at the moment.

#58 Posted by TobbRobb (4549 posts) -

last I looked Dota 2 and League are still free. So one might even say most of what I play is F2P now.

#59 Edited by Veektarius (4530 posts) -

I still play some Marvel Heroes. I think it's an underrated Diablo-type. It's mostly in short bursts, though.

#60 Posted by Bollard (5195 posts) -

Trying to play Hearthstone, but it's frustrating when I'm losing to people just because my deck sucks (as it is one of the preconstructed ones) and I haven't played enough to earn good cards to make my own, rather than I made a mistake.

It sucks extra hard that the only balanced mode, the Arena, is locked behind a paywall too. Which either means more money, or more grinding. Either way I'm shafted.

#61 Posted by Ravenlight (8040 posts) -

Warframe. So much Warframe.

#62 Posted by GERALTITUDE (2855 posts) -

Warframe is the only F2P I've ever been able to stomach.

#63 Posted by SarcasticMudcrab (146 posts) -

I stopped playing TF2 about the time it went free. Currently play 1 or 2 games of LoL a day, the occasional Rift battleground and occasional Path of Exile.

#64 Posted by stryker1121 (1323 posts) -

Path of Exile here and there. I've gotten to enjoy it but not to the point where I'm playing daily.

#65 Posted by bluefish (417 posts) -

I answered 'no' but then I remembered I played an hour of Warframe and plan on going back.

So yes?

#66 Posted by SMTDante89 (2539 posts) -

Warframe on the PS4. So far so good, might try out DCUO sometime this week too since I never played it on my PS3.

#67 Posted by 49th (2666 posts) -

TF2, although I started playing when it was $20.

Honestly, TF2 is pretty much the only game I play at all at the moment. I am busy so only have like 1 or 2 hours on the weekend to play a few rounds.

I also stopped using the micro-transactions a few months ago, the amount of hats they added is just silly.

Being not much of a multiplayer person myself, I am not nor have I ever played a F2P game.

#69 Posted by Nictel (2364 posts) -

DOTA2, though at this point 'free' ain't the word anymore..

Planetside 2!

#72 Posted by Belegorm (335 posts) -

I have played a ton of league of legends in the past, but I'm taking a break from it right now. I did play TF2 but before it went f2p (got it with the orange box on pc back in the day).

#73 Posted by I_Stay_Puft (2931 posts) -

Jumped back into Marvel Heroes with the new in-game content.

#74 Edited by JJBSterling (164 posts) -

I used played a bunch of free to play games, Runescape (a personal shame/guilty pleasure),TF2, I dabbled with some Planetside 2 and Marvel: Heroes but they didn't grab me for very long.

League of Legends was the most recent one, a bunch of my friends want me to get back into it but I have some kind of queue anxiety with games like that, it's kind of preventing me from wanting to go back (but I still might).

I am currently playing Path of Exile as my main game and its the best f2p game out there for me. I gave them 20 dollars for more bank slots and called it a day. Seriously so much fun and fair. Not many f2p games I can claim being fair for the people actually playing the game. You really don't have to spend money at all to enjoy it.

#77 Posted by Ubersmake (754 posts) -

I have LoL installed. I don't play it all that much, seeing as I'm terrible at it, but it's there whenever four other friends want to dive into that madness.

A bit of War Thunder :)

#81 Posted by Hosstile17 (762 posts) -

Ever since I got my PS4 I have been goofing around with Blacklight Retribution. It is alright. Not enough for me to pay money into, though.

#82 Posted by Demoskinos (14510 posts) -

Just actually started playing Warframe last night.

Forza 5 is full of free to play microtransactions is what I think he was getting at.

Saying it's from the Forza 5 QL doesn't help unless you know the original context of the "Never" picture.

#84 Posted by TheHT (10781 posts) -

I'm begrudgingly getting back into The Old Republic because I really want to get through some of the stories. The restrictions are pretty brutal, even if you're a "Preferred" player.

I tend to check out F2P games and stop after 10 minutes to an hour. Sometimes I'll go back to them thinking I didn't give it a fair shake, like Rift which I reinstalled yesterday, only to play it again for 10 minutes and say fuck it. Uninstall.

Path of Exile also seemed cool but I'm still going through Torchlight 2 and enjoying that. DOTA 2 is great though, I'll get into that for a week or two and then take a break. Doesn't really work out when I get back into it and kinda suck, but whatever. I did play a lot of Star Trek Online, and quite enjoyed it until the UI got borked on my old 5x4 monitor. Still, the ship combat was tons of fun. I might start that up again now that I think about it.

#85 Posted by MikeJFlick (435 posts) -

War Thunder, World of tanks and Path of Exile.

#86 Edited by UlquioKani (1016 posts) -

DOTA 2 EVERY DAY.

#87 Posted by Lyisa (324 posts) -

Hearthstone and RO. Fortunately can play both at the same time as pokemon. Or all three.

Now that I'm sitting down and thinking about the multi-tasking i've been doing my head really hurts.

#88 Posted by Gruntypig (13 posts) -

Some people are saying Forza 5 but that's not free to play that's pay to pay.

#89 Posted by ervonymous (1297 posts) -

Gave Path of Exile and Duel of Champions a go but my enthusiasm petered out like always with F2P games. Unless the game's Tribes: Ascend, in which case it's just a damn shame.

I keep playing SolForge for some unknown reason.

The only free to play games that I got really into were Maple Story and Gunbound.

#92 Posted by Colourful_Hippie (4328 posts) -

I bought it but I guess TF 2. I want to get more in Warframe

#93 Edited by ryanwhom (290 posts) -

Order and Chaos Duels is the only ftp game that's still on my phone. Because I very occasionally get the tcg itch and it doesn't inundate you with free to play hooks.

Playing Path of Exile on and off. It's pretty rad.

I tried but didn't like any of the classes they offered. Which are fun?

If it hasn't changed since I last played (which was over a year ago in the closed beta, so it may have), every class is exactly the same; the only thing that changes is where you start on the passive skill tree.

It hasn't changed. The classes still only determine where you start in the skill ... web.

I continue to play Dota 2, a little Warthunder once in a while, and just started dabbling in PoE. I haven't played TF2 in a while. I should change that.

Hearthstone for me! I'm pretty effing hooked. Still haven't paid for anything. Though some drunk play sessions got me awfully close... Then I realized I'd have to go get my credit card.

#96 Edited by neobendez (14 posts) -

I'm planning on playing. I'm thinking on Pokemon too,I've got friends who seems to enjoy it a lot!
