quote: Team Fortress 2 is probably the best done free-to-play yet, in my eyes. You can buy the game and get everything eventually (or trade for it) while playing the base game and having zero advantage over anyone else. The things you buy are purely cosmetic, having zero effect on the competitive portion of it. The difference, though, is the game was complete and finished at the time it was released.

quote: If you are in any way interested in competitive, deep, challenging gameplay, you should give it a shot. FPS are childs play that really don't require much skill compared to something like DOTA or Starcraft. I just got too bored after things moved from the Quake model to CoD and anything after BF2.

quote: Have you actually played the F2P powerhouses out there?
quote: Yeah just like for every 100 retail games, 99 of the suck. Keep paying $60 if you want, I'll play my F2P games that I enjoy and pay only when I want to.
