the model and advertising can be very different indeed.i know some games that can be played to their entirity with not one penny being spent on them.Dirtybomb for eg.i played that for nearly 2000 hrs earnt all my gear by just playing.
as todd says if steam put it under the ftp banner.then you have to blame steam for it.
If it doesn't require a credit card number or monthly payment to hop on a map and shoot a free species........it's free to play, facts not opinion. Unfortunately it's not as "free" as some people want it to be but you can play this game and kill without spending a dime. I doubt anyone that doesn't want to spend a dollar on this game is gonna stick around and take it serious anyways. So it's a nice little thing for anyone to be able to hop in, see the game, test it out..."PLAY" it and see how they like it before investing $ into it. If they required a monthly fee before they let you enter a map then it wouldn't be, but it is, just to a certain extent.
its a tricky subject to debate.you state fact.should never do that in a internet debate or subject.the truth of it is you are limited in play for free . you cant do everything in the game for free.that is fact.the games great but much of the negativity came from it being labled ftp when it isnt.if it was you wouldnt have had so many putting what they have put over the years on steam.or marking the rating down because they believe the title of free to play doesnt fit the game.which being honest and anyone saying anything else is quite frankly a lie.you can only play ftp if you have a weapon that is free and on a reserve with a animal that ethical for that week.i get why its done i understand it.the game isnt ftp though.
you dont need to reply.i understand what you mean.im just stating a honest opinion.i actually think that image maybe better on steam if it wasnt labled as it is.was.
as to say there is no free to play games for nothing.yes there is . as i said dirtybomb no money needs to be spent at all.you can get everything from just playing.there is no held back all the content is free if you choose to play it.they offer paid content aswell and that covers the free players but you in no way benefit from buying paid items.many people dont realize how ftp actually works and how much of the community behind the game needs to chip in to cover and make money for a game.its a tiny percentage of the whole population of the game.
I'm not a "fanyboy" of you Ron, but I respected you and enjoyed your content. Just because you can't do everything in the game doesn't mean it's not free to play. Let's take world of warcraft for example. Everquest.either one I'd pay 10 to 15 dollars a month just to run around the maps. Not free to play, things have changed with those games but I'm talking about the release dates and couple years after. So I had to pay 10 to 15 a month just to get one the map, just to see what others have accomplished through time and effort. You can hop on the hunter anytime and kill animals so it is free to play. Point blank no argument it's free to play. It's not free to own every weapon and an unlimited access to hunt all animals. It isn't advertised as that either. So there's no lying going on, there's no shenanigans, you get what you give in this game and if you don't want to give a dollar you still get to hunt free species. That's free to play .....................can't argue that.
