@agleung: I’m sick of all the freemium that you pay for perishable items usable in only 1 device.
@Heleninhacf: I am sick of it, they only make me frustrated
@pdclose: Freemium is mixed. Pay walls are evil, don’t hold me hostage! But quality devs are out there.
@Daskirken: freemium is just depressing, it’s sad that “premium” even has to be suggested, all games should be.
@Retronaut42: Triple Town is the only app that has gotten freemium city-building right.
@speedy1007: I hate freemium games because it’s forcing the market into that direction and ruined great games like Triple Town
@Kevink1596: God no, freemium has RUINED ice age for ever. That was the last straw.
@TehHerman: I hate games like farmville with a lot of waiting and the constant pressure to buy in-game premium money/items.
@DCloseTweets: I hate all Freemium games because money should be saved not spent!
@MrNoName655: I don’t like freemium games, not because of the payment model, but because very few are actually fun.
@Trocergian: I’m not hot on Freemium games as to date the style of games with this option just don’t appeal to me
@Nachotay: I am ok with freemium games. Most of them are horrible but they are free so who cares.
@alee67: I generally like freemium games because I don’t have much to spend.
@pieces_of_you: Freemium games should be avoided. Spending a crapton of money is the only way to truly play the full game
@sixthseal: Freemium games = bane of full price/no wait/forced purchase model. Alas, it’s the way the market is going
@crex1111: I hate freemium games because they always have IAP that is way too overpriced.
