Working out Scratch

Freemium Games Are The Biggest Waste of Money

featured-image-4121588

Stop throwing your money away on crappy phone games. That’s the dumbest thing you can do with your money. These supposedly free games make a killing off of bored people who want an excuse to touch their phone. There was a time not too long ago where it was OK to stop touching your phone for five minutes. My Freemium gaming experience was specific to one game, but all of these games are the same. They get money out of players in two ways. The first is that they lock the game and prevent you from playing it unless you pay a fee. The second is they allow you to pay to unlock things like new characters, weapons, and power-ups. It’s really easy to fork over a dollar or two when you’re waiting at the dentist’s office or sitting at your desk at work. Those dollars don’t seem like much at the time, but they add up quickly.

My experience with Freemium gaming was The Simpsons: Tapped Out. This is a free game where you get to build the fictional town of Springfield from scratch. That’s what I was told anyway. The game play in The Simpsons: Tapped Out consists of placing buildings and then waiting a pre-set time period to click on them to get money to buy more buildings. This leads to every town having huge blocks of buildings placed as close together as possible because you don ‘t want to waste an inch of real estate space. That’s not really my idea of proper city planning.
