GameZone's Mike Splechta writes, "owadays everything seems to be free*. Though, you might think "what's wrong with free?" There is absolutely no barrier for me to play any of these games right now. The problem lies with that little asterisk. You see free-to-play, or more appropriately freemium games don't require you to invest anything to try it out, but after a short while will become either impossible to play without spending money, or downright boring and awful until spending money makes it fun. So what is this new fad of making everything free? Simple, money."
