For those of you who don't speak gamer or are new to the gaming community that's Free to Play can be No Big Deal. I'm impressed by some F2P games. Perfect World and Runes of Magic, being the few. The only problem I have with some of these games is something that sme of you might know about and also find as equally annoying. Graphic glitching.
What this means is after awhile of your computer being on or playing the game, the graphics start to act up. Your screen starts to act as if it's lagging or speeding up. I'm not entirely sure as to what causes this. Maybe it's the video card or maybe it's an overaccumulation of cache. Whatever the reason, it's enough to drive you mad.
With that aside I think F2P is an absolutely awesome market. Allowing people to play an awesome game without paying but also giving them the chance to gain awesome items and rewards through buying currencies is a great concept that I wish many games would adapt to. It might give them a chance to survive in this gaming world gone mad. I think games like EQ would definately be good for this. I realize that Sony has it's Free Realms game and it's a big hit. Why not revive an old classic in a similar way? And to be even more bold on the subject, I think Blizzard might benefit from it as well, even if they do manage millions in World of Warcraft. Give those without a means to afford it a chance to play with all the others instead of constantly having to get ahold of passes and friend's game cards. Or, create another, totally different game with the same mechanics only free.
So now I pass the pen to the rest of you. Any thoughts, ideas?
