Many people have called F2P a fad. This seems like evidence of that.

Dust 514 seems to be the beginning of this on the PS3.

I think free to play cheapens games making them very similar dull experiences that throw countless pop ups in your face to give them your money.... I hate F2P

I don't mind the popups or even their nonstop pandering for more $. What does bug me is how after about an hour of two worth of progress in these F2P games, the difficulty spikes way up so you (you as in idiots)are forced to spend money on that weapon that costs over $400 in-game money for ammo, because it's the only way to beat the next level.

Way too many of these games out their hook you in only to shit on you later.

Even the games you actually pay for still do this....Like Infinity Blade 2 which gets absurd after a time and wants you to spend $10 on a few thousand gold that would otherwise take a week to farm up.
