My husband says they have ruined all gaming. Since their increasing popularity, even console games like Call of Duty are forcing users to pay for the "premium" content. There was a time when map updates and other packs were offered for free and given to the consumers. Now that is not the case. What are you opinions on freemium gaming? Specifically Tycoon games like Farmville, My Clinic and The Syndicate. It is so hard to achieve anything without paying real money. Do you succumb to the urge? Or do you tough it out and play the hurry up, harvest, and wait game?
