Is there anything worse than microtransactions?

The spark has been lit. EA has decided as a company they are going to continue forward with using micro transactions in their games. Most gamers are not happy about this announcement. The big question is if this can benefit gamers? Could there be a better way to get gamers’ money? Is there anything worse than micro transactions, how about Freemium and Day 1 DLC? (Casual games, Dead Space 3, Mass Effect 3, PC, PS3, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, Xbox 360)

Paying to play online to even GET TO the microtransactions.

You don't need an xbox Live Gold account to buy virtual goods aka microtransactions. If you're going to troll, at least do your research first. LOL

Yeah he should have just said paying to play online is worse and stopped there, because it definitely is worse. Paying a subscription to play online is like buying a game and then renting it too.

inb4 paying for individual guns in BF4 after already buying the game.

Supporting it is obviously worse... I mean it's one thing for companies to try (I mean thats what they do) and another to actually support it.
giovonni  +   714d ago
Yes, Microtransactions that are mandatory for vital items, like health packs that you will need to complete the game, last level and ending of a/all game(s). If the ending sucks, Tough titty, at least you beat the game

I love pizza.

A kick in the balls is worse than micro transactions.
Donnieboi  +   714d ago
No, that's actually kinda hot. I like getting roshambo'd in the old nads. Sexy.

People who don't care for them or even use them at all , but still find the time to bitch about them . now that is worse.
pythonxz  +   714d ago
LOL, The Horse Armor. It is still one the worst DLC ever.
BLKxSEPTEMBER  +   714d ago
Herpes is worse I would think
CaulkSlap  +   714d ago
Microtransactions for pay to win items in multiplayer. It's like cancer with a side of AIDs.

Definitely DRM.
