The Rise of Free-to-Play

Frontburnr: Recently, Josh Deane wrote about how micro transactions in video games could pretty much snowball into the worst thing ever. He hit an incredible amount of points right on the head but something really started to nag at me. Micro transactions in purchasable games may be the stupidest thing in the history of video games, yet there are a plethora of great games that survive on nothing but these micro transactions. Now, before you jump down to the comment section to start ranting about Pay-to-Play or Pay-to-Win titles, please understand that I stand with you on how much those games suck.
