    The games that are normallly free are somewhat not fully free. In which I mean the game has in-game purchases and such. Some of these ingame purchases do really help the game development, but doesn't really help them as much. Since it is free most likely the game will turn out lowquality. So tell me if free games are worth it

    there are some out there that are fair.
    like Red Tides: Art of War and Trove
    trove is too grindy tho, you need to put alot of effort into this :l
    Red Tides: Art of War is fair, the lvls don't matter they pair you up with opponents with the stats as you. the only problem is on 3v3 some of your allies go afk or DC which is a big problem :(

    it still worth it....Some developers has that passsion in the game itself and develops them otherwise....Those in game purchases makes it at least possible for them to continue on...You just have to find that right game. :)

    I've found a school's worth of amazing free games! From Piano Tiles 2 to My Talking Tom, and more! There is no way I could list them all! :D

    A game that is completely free (no in-app purchases, optional purchases, etc.) might not be worth playing because companies need to generate revenue to keep free games up-to-date and quality-assured. Some completely free games try to generate ads and I sometimes feel like those kinds of games aren't worth playing because it gets annoying having to watch advertisements when all you want to do is play.

    Free games that have in-app purchases and optional purchases are okay because they insure that game companies will develop the game properly. Just as long as the game has no ads, and doesn't require you to pay money to turn off ads, I'm okay with those kinds of free games.

    I think they are worth it too. Since it's free, they need in-game purchases to keep the game going i guess.

    I guess free games can really take his toll. One cannot simply make a high resolution game without any in-game real money expenditures

    From most opinions i have heard and in my own i believe that its very hard for a free to play game to survive... The companies other make it p2w or the don't really bother updating it properly... Most ppl believe that when a game is pay to play/pay once to play it's better cause the company gets some money to update the content and u get everything inside of the gamee without having to pay for unlocking areas and stuff..(Unless they are greedy AF and implement p2w options like boosts etc. instead of just costumes,mounts).

    Yeah, most devs of free games most likely quit their projects because of low payment

    They're worth it short term but in the long run with most free games you run out of stuff to do or it becomes p2w

    Honestly most MMORPGs and MOBAs are usually free. These are games that offer a lot of content with the option to pay only for a higher experience, in costume-like items.

    I think it's important to play free games before jumping into the real money mode. You have to make sure that the game is worth your time and efforts

    It depends.If you just want to kill time ,it is ok to get some free games.But if you want to be an expert in it,no harm to invest in items or even leveling at all.
