I've never played a free-to-play game that I liked. This model needs to just stop.

Planetside 2 is the only good one i have played but the upcoming Deep Down looks great too

Edit: Apparently it is....

I could never have imagined that I would read such a horribly titled article from Reuters.

I expect a title like "Piracy challenges nascent Chinese gaming business" or something.

Team Fortress 2 is one of the best F2P FPS's out there. Also Planetside 2 is pretty good as well.

"Sony PlayStations, however, have better security than their competitors and are more difficult to modify for pirated games, so piracy is less of a threat to their business."

I guess he didn't get the memo when PSN was hacked and shutdown for over a month.
