TTH: "I started playing free-to-play (F2P) games in March 2008. I was sick of paying subscriptions for games I had too little time to play. I expected to find low quality titles filled with adolescents who couldn't persuade their parents to pay for a subscription game. Despite my lowered expectations, I found a handful of games that were better than I anticipated and communities of players just like me. I met moms and dads who struggled to find precious time for gaming and could not justify the expense of buying a game at the retailer and paying a monthly fee. I encountered college students trying to scrape by on minimum wage who deserve a little down time now and again."
