Are You an MMOG Snob?

Posted Feb 22, 2010 by Jon Wood

Are You an MMOG Snob?'s Free Zone writer Richard Aihoshi takes a look this week at MMO snobs.

I wonder how many times I've seen people make absolute statements to the effect that "I'll never play a free to play game." And how often will this actually prove to be so? The last time I checked, never was a very long time. It's easy enough to believe things like "I'll never murder anyone", "I'll never be in favor of gay marriage" and "I'll never support abortion on demand". Such declarations are likely to be based on deeply held societal, group or personal values that aren't likely to change.

You can call me a faithless unbeliever if you like, but somehow, I can't give never playing a F2P anywhere near the same degree of credibility. Instead, I might compare it to never eating escargot or sushi. I think most people are sincere when they say rule out the possibility, but my expectation is that eventually, the majority will partake at least once. A fair number will even enjoy the experience and repeat it.
