A Design for Boring: Problems with the Freemium Model | Dragon Blogger

Like everyone else who remembers driving to the mall to buy a new PC game in a box, I love checking out a game before deciding to buy it. And I’m happy paying for an awesome extra upgrade in a free game. Spending 99 cents in a freemium game for a more powerful sword for my brave adventurer or a faster cupcake oven for my cute little baker often serves as the same kind of pick-me-up as an afternoon latte.
