  1. Guys come on I mean if you have the chance to try & play free like I do it is absolutely worth it to spend some bugs. Just set yourself a limit if you get too overwhelmed. The whole discussion over f2p games is kind of bothering me, cause as a developer myself I like to show some love to others especially to those who just got started and have really great stuff to offer.

  2. I never paid for simple online items. But maybe I would pay for more complex content like e.g. access to the whole map in runescape.

    Apart from that I paid 50€ to support development in a strategy game I played for some years.

  3. I have, about $3 in total if I remember correctly. On two facebook games – Army Attack, and … some other game I can’t remember the name of. The ‘other’ game because I wanted to see how far putting a little coin in helped me. And Army Attack because the odds were stack against me, they were coming from all sides in heavy armour! I was beaten down but couldn’t let them take my small village, so I bought some fuel, and wood, and rushed a couple of supply drops. Needless to say I won the battle that day.

    $3, yeah I think it was worth it for a month of game play.

  4. I’ve never bought anything within a browser game. If I feel I’m being asked to fork over cash in a free-2-play game that’s usually the point I stop playing!

    I’m probably a terrible example of a typical user though :)

  5. I did on a strategy game I played for two months. First time and the last one. Now I prefer paying for mobile (1-3€ once a month), XBox (20-30€ once every two months) or Steam titles (5-10€ once in a while). Oh! …and Indie games bundles.

  6. Oh crap, remembered I spent money on Farmville once, for research whilst I was working on My Tribe at Big Fish Games.

  7. Previous blog post got mainly “yes”. Now for the bit more interesting question… (bearing in mind the audience who read this blog – mainly game devs)
