Does anyone here have problems with overspending in in game spending, such as freemium, free to play, microtransactions etc? As well as problems of addiction? gotcha games etc.


im poor so im always the f2p chad that compensates by never missing a daily login and grinds like a lunatic


Pretty much this. I may have a problem with how much I play games, but piracy and f2p games ensure I spend very little on it.


I remember shareware from the 2000s, basically the early form of f2p, and i'd never buy the full version.

i've spent over $400 on Rainbow Six Siege cosmetics and will continue to do so. these are some of mine.
i dont enjoy playing any game except this, so there's nothing else for me to spend money on.


Imagine paying for pixels.


I mean, do you not pay for your internet access?


Only succubi get cosmetics for their barbies.


Some people say its no different than spending thousands for gaming PC rigs and hundreds on AAA games



If you think about it fancy GPUs are just another way of paying for pixels in games to look nice


Are there any free to play mobile games that don't suck? I need something to kill time when I'm outside


The only time I really buy micro transactions are shit like 4 cent CS:GO skins so people don't think I am a bot or smurf and auto kick me.

Never got into trading or buying keys or any of that bullshit.
Most I spent on a single micro-transaction was like 25 cents for a cool skin on my favorite gun. Which is like the cost of a sticker or something in a gumball machine which is similarly just some dumb slightly interesting thing to look at for a bit before it fades or falls off.

Soul Knight is pretty good.
Isn't pay to win. It's pay to remove ads or pay to unlock special characters.

None of the guns/weapons are paywalled and IMO some of the best characters are unlockable for free. Like the ninja and wizard.


Mobile games will always suck. My only suggestion is to use emulators and play PSP and Gamecube games or something. That said, there are a few that are OK if you are into "rogue-like" or strategy games:
>Cataclysm DDA, It's an open source roguelike but it's complete autism. Don't play if you don't have cripplingly severe autism.
>Unciv, an open source strategy game that is a direct copy of Civilization V. When I say direct copy, I mean it's a feature complete and mostly bug free Civ V already, just without the expansions and 3D graphics.
>Mindustry, like Factorio but much simpler.
>UnNethack. It's nethack.


I got a free panzer general clone for my tablet. Ads are bad enough on a PC, but on a small tablet screen, taking up 1/4 of the screen its unplayable


man I have been playing League o f legends, and I am horrified at some people that pay for ALL the skins.

even if I was rich, this is insane to me. I know I felt the urge to buy skins many times. but the poorfag within me thrives like a phoenix, and soon I feel too cheap to spend on this shit.

and I never regret not buying. I feel like I can quit this game whenever I want I won't have wasted my money.


I've also been sucked into the league machine. I only play like one champ though so I bought her skins, and I'm considering buying the chromas too. But I play her so much it doesn't feel like a waste. Though some skins cost like 100 dollars for one skin.

I play more boardgames & tabletop games than computer games though. Most of them are self-contained so spending is under control.

Currently wanting the official Avatar: The Last Airbender rpg.


reason why I liked reading the dropped games general thread, saved me bandwidth and money. epic giveaways made me stop wasting cash on steam, screw that drm frontend. now if I do buy, it's from drm free stores.


And now they added NFT to the mix


Got disliked into the dirt.
Only two more days before even plugins to fix the dislike button stop working.
Then there will be no way for the average person to show their contempt for shit like this.


>Then there will be no way for the average person to show their contempt for shit like this.
It's called not buying it. There has never been a point in "disliking" a video on youtube, it literally does nothing except quell your ego. And in any matter, the uploader can still see the dislikes, so you can show your dislike of something just as much as you could before.


Sometimes it was useful just for knowing theres a controversy there. Not that I always agree with the haters, but just a heads up that something is going on.

Like IGN reviews I notice get heavily downvoted, both when they are too high and too low. Like HOTS was rated low so they were like "what blizzard doesn't pay you?". And then WC3 was rated high and they were like "blizzard paid you?". So it can be stupid, but its just a heads up that people disagree. Or on scam videos, or bait that has nothing to do with the title. So even though it was abused and manipulated, it was still a useful alert to be taken with many grains of salt.


It's a good change, hopefully people will start using their own thoughts more rather than looking for an opinion in numbers


Well at the very least it was a useful warning for outright bait vids that don't deliver on the title


Being contrary on whatever is going on is a compulsive tick for you.
Same as your habitual dismissal of anything that isn't yourself.


It is a bad change which you like because you are a contrarian who has hated youtube for years and actively hoped it died for years.


In my now 14 years of gaming I think I spent around 500€ total on games and I'm planning to never spend a cent on them ever again.

So no it's not a problem for me.


Jesus fuck, no wonder they buy up all the YouTuber ad space. Madness.

>a free slot game is number 3

I wonder what humanity as a species would look like if it was not subject to dopamine addiction


I thought id never spend cash on cosmetics. but i ended up buying the cod battle pass. i like unlocking more characters and having headcanon stories for them. and it renews for free each season. so now i learned sometimes it can be reasonable to pay for cosmetics, even though i used to judge others


per player????

this has to be some kind of criminal enterprise


I rarely spend any money on f2p/gacha type stuff actually.

My problem is getting games on sale that I never actually play


Gross misuse of average.


then what does it mean?


No I mean it is an average. But it paints the idea that most people playing that game spend around $600, when it is far more likely that the majority spend nothing, while a minority spend thousands and bring up the average.
