Kabn said:i played for a long time. until the people making it turned it into crap because they didn't have to worry about satisfying customers. people trying to make money from me have a vested interest in keeping me happy.
and six months ago, i was completely and 100% the same way about monthly fees. i mocked my friends who played DaoC, EQ, AC, and all the others for continuing to pay for the game.
then i started playing WoW. they could never cover their costs on servers and bandwidth with a one-time payment. and i'm too much of a capitalist to say they should give the game out for free. i've gotten past the point of moaning about the market screwing me a little. they exist to make money, and they made a bunch that first day. good for them.
i'm playing now, and the fun i'm having is worth $15 a month. that's two movies. or two meals. or half a night downtown. plus, i figure i owe the industry something since i don't pay for nearly any of my other games.

game price = development. which was lengthy and probably very expensive on this game, considering they had no prior release on which to build.Coqui said:My issue then is that they should make the game free to download then charge the monthly service. Not both.

monthly fee = server maintenance
they have to make a profit somewhere.

Are the graphic standards for an mmorpg different than for an FPS?
But still, I would think a modern new game would look better than that.
