Alright so many of these games are WoW clones. Many are trashy and pathetic and then some arent. Perfect World International, for example, claims 50 million players - at least thats what I read somewhere and then theres other games like Lord of the Rings Online, Dungeon and Dragons Online, Runes of Magic, and Atlantica Online who also sport good player bases and good popularity. From my experience and from what other have said - the largest short coming of these games is the fact that they use micro transactions and because they dont show as much polish as some games like WoW and now RIFT. Why do people dislike Free2Play so much? Whats the inherant issue? The fact that we dont actually pay for the game? The assumption that it can be crappy cuz its "free"? I know that thats my issue. I can admit it. I like owning my games - that way I can expect things. But when it comes to "free" games - I find myself wanting to play the games I HAVE paid for just to justify buying them in the first place. I think its an American mentality but in any case its there. What do you have to say?
