QOTW: No and no. Pretty straightforward question of the week.
ONE OF US ONE OF US ONE OF US ONE OF US
I download the free to play stuff on Switch but I haven’t put any time into a F2P game on a console since Adventure Capitalist on my now-gone in February 2017. (I had to do *something* with the bloody thing before Persona 4 came out.)
(now gone PS4… and Persona 5. We need an edit button.)
I almost never visit Gamestop anymore. I can’t blame them for offering exclusive stuff; they need to get traffic into their stores somehow.
QOTW: The one non-computer F2P game I put any significant time into was Pokemon Picross on the 3DS. I managed to 100% complete it without paying any real-life money, but it required almost a year of time-gated “Daily Training”.
I will rarely experiment with a F2P game in whatever venue. Hearthstone was amusing for a little while. I tried the other Pokemon F2P games on 3DS and quickly got bored of them. As a longtime Wild Arms fan, I will possibly give Wild Arms Million Memories a chance.
World of Warcraft isn’t truly a F2P game, but it might as well be one for people like me who pay for everything (subscription fees, expansions, pets and mounts from the shop) with in-game gold converted to Battle.net balance through the WoW Token system.
