Changing the definition of F2P: Why the European Commission is being ridiculous

AWESOMEoutof10's Fraser Brown defends Free-To-Play games from those that would like to see them called something else. He may not like most of them, but the F2P model isn't a lie. "And outside of the MMO sphere are countless games that don’t require one to spend a penny, from huge titles like Dota 2, League of Legends and Team Fortress 2, to popular mobile games like Candy Crush Saga and Angry Birds. They are everywhere, and the model is one of the defining features of an entire generation of games. But the European Commission, the executive branch of the EU made up entirely of unelected commissioners, wants to change what has become part of the language of gaming. If a title has in-game purchases — as most do — then it shouldn’t be called F2P." (Industry)
