    I used to make a lot of in-game purchases, but over the past year, I haven’t made any. Is it just me?

    I would love to sat don't be silly, why would I do that, But I am a gamer, some skins are just needed, some content is just too cool..

    So yes, i have absolutely spent money in free to play games and APPS lollol.
    I just cant be trusted with my own money when i get into a new game or check out a new free to play game

    I used to spend money on free games years ago: Battlefield Play4Free and Need for Speed World. The only free game I play now is Real Racing 3, but haven't spent any real money on it - there are other means instead :smile_:

    If i have so much Fun with a free2play Game, like Valorant :heart:, yes sure!!!
    Why shouldnt i spend a lilttle of my money, for those who have created a game that I really enjoy!

    Enough games are made on the basis of a good story/idea you have to pay for and then only get annoyed more and more often because it is *"&=$# programmed or get pached2death.... pubg.... warzone.... bf1... bf5...

    i'm not realy a fan of this crazy skin-posing culture like the kids today celebrate it, but valorant is (in my opinion!!!)
    the best example!
    An amazing background story (with a first-person shooter !!!), quick and fair support, quick elimination of bugs and constant contact with the community, a game that is based on criticism and wishes of the community and develops it further (and not just like the project managers and gamedesigner imagine it ..... * awwwpubgwwwww * ^^)

    it's just fair, to spend 10 bugs for battlepass (60 days i think) or to spend 10-20€ in skins within a half year.

    No, never. If I can get something for free why would I pay for it. I'm not that impatient.

    Nah, game free is playing for free.
    Buying skins is stupid for me.

    I'd say it's really a case-by-case question, I can play a free-to-play game for months without buying anything, but I can also spend 50 euros in a month.
    Depends on the game, the skins, the items you can buy, and whether or not I find it "worth" .
    Sometimes there's a majestic mount, sometimes a fancy outfit, but sometimes I just don't want to give any money to a game / studio even if there are things that I would like.

    On one hand, when you really love a game and play if for free during years, and also support the studio and people behind it, why not please yourself and give them money ?
    On the other hand, why pay when you can have fun and enjoy for free ?

    I few moths ago I played a lot of Crossout, a free to play multiplayer vehicle creator and battler. The magic to me was logging in every day to claim the free money, complete the missions, and receive the items I had set to build the day before. I also really enjoyed the trading system that let you buy and sell pieces with other players. I honestly think it was worth the grind as most of my time was spent recreating my vehicle and optimizing it for PvP.

    The change came in when they introduced a battle pass. I was playing so much I earnt everything that was free from the battle pass and wanted to claim all the cool stuff that wasn't free. So I spent the £7 and claimed loads of cool new special items that I couldn't sell.
    After that, I had a fun week or so of building and experimenting. However, after that week I have barely played it again. I felt like it lost the magic.
    I feel like there is something to learn from this case as it was connected to a battle pass and I couldn't trade the items I had 'paid' for. I wonder if I were to play again now, I could refresh some of the magic.

    My main question to you is, is this a common feeling among F2P players? I played on PS4, but I wanted to discuss whether F2P players on mobile had similar experiences. Also, what is the general consensus on battle omegle passes, I am all for a free game with paid aspects, but when does it get in the way of fun?

    Only free-to-play game I've ever spent money on was Path of Exile. Game has 0 pay-to-win options, so no guilt involved, and am glad to support the developers since the game is pretty dang good.

    Never. I find it hard to justify spending money on silly things like skins. If it doesn't somehow enhance the experience of the game or give some kind of advantage, I don't find most paid content worth it. Especially when a good majority of it can be unlocked by grinding and ranking.

    Mobile free games - I don't spend money.
    Console free games - I have on Fortnite and that is far.

    definitely yes, i bought several skins in League Of Legends
  19. It really depends on the game. Some of them have cosmetics that are worthwhile while others it's just a matter of if the game is fun enough as is. In-game purchases kind of seem to follow their own meta.

    Sometimes I do just for the sake of donating to the developers or when I think I'm going to invest a lot of time in the game. Although, I often find myself abandoning the game within a week of my purchase.
