The other day when I was writing up a post on Elder Scrolls Online’s new DLC, I noted that while the content cost a good chunk of change to most folks, those who subscribed were given the DLC as part of their package. That seemed reasonable to me.
Most free-to-play and even some buy-to-play MMOs offer a subscription option for extra goodies and a one-price-gets-all deal. Plus, studios are never ones to turn up their noses at additional revenue streams. It made me wonder, though, how many people sub up in these games.
Do you subscribe to a game that you could otherwise get for free? Why do you do it? Do you feel that what you get is worth the monthly cost?
