    Star Wars: Galaxy of Heroes, DomiNations, Lastronaut, Threes, and Tiny Tower. Mainly the first two, though. The last three are non-wifi games, which I reserve for when I have time to kill in a data-less, wifi-less area.

    I hate mobile games now. In app purchases have ruin it for me ( I don't consider myself a heavy gamer but I am not a casual gamer either). I am somewhere in between.

    I paid $10? For madden football when it first launch. Seriously I don't have an issue paying $20-30 for a good mobile game (like Nintendo ds or ps vita games). I just want to pay once and be done with it.

    Nickel and diming has turned me off.

    First thing I do when I get a new phone or restore a phone is to disable in app purchases.

    I WILL NEVER buy another mobile game on iOS or play store with in app purchased. Maybe I am in the minority. My son (he's almost 6) loves his Xbox one games. He's pissed off when he can't play his iPad games cause I disabled in app purchases.

    But that's what I believe. I want game developers (my next door neighbor designs games for electronic arts in orlando). to get paid. But not at the expense of nickel and diming. I know "the race to the bottom" with 99 cents app and the move towards in app. He's explained it to me.

    But I also explain to him I buy $60 Xbox one games when they launch (now $48 with Best Buy gamers club discount or Amazon prime discount). But I also buy games 4-6 months later at $25 when they are older).

    Why can't mobile games be the same. $30 for new games. Than discount it as game gets older. I am sure revenue will be the same either way.

    IAP's killed it for me also. Sure some games you can get by w/out using or buying any of the IAP's but then others, it's mandatory to get past certain stages/levels.

    And don't even mention if you have to fight/play other people. Especially if they have bought all the IAP's and you never have a chance in the world at making it. Might as well just issue out cheat codes and what not then. Same type of feelings I get about DLC and current FPS multiplayer. Console peasants killed PC gaming. So linear, much restricted access.

    Currently I play Candy Crush Jelly and Soda, Yo Kai Watch Wibble Wobble (silly name, but it's quite fun), Bloons TD 5, and I occasionally play Two Dots and Panda Pop. I have a bunch of others, but I usually end up with tons I rarely use.

    That's why all I play is Fun Run on my phone to kill time every now and then. There are IAPs, but it's only used to buy coins to get different avatars and dress them however if you're impatient and don't want to wait until you accumulate enough coins on your own through races. They don't give you any kind of advantage in a race over someone who never paid anything. Quite the opposite, actually, because more expensive avatars imply a higher level of skill, and other players will single you out in attacks when they can.

    I refuse to pay for or play a game that requires you to pay actual money to advance in the game faster. Those games just ensure the rich/financially irresponsible are the best at the game.

    I'll disagree about this part. PC gaming is fully alive, and is growing steadily. It is not being restricted in any shape or form, unless you have a different meaning of "linear and restricted". In fact, I actually like my consoles linear and restricted. I just want to be able to play games on them, I don't want an advanced media center or whatever. 6th gen consoles and prior didn't even have any kind of software interaction, aside from a BIOS which is only used for data management and stuff.

    And please don't toss words like "Console peasants" and "PC Master Race" around, it feels very offensive if you like consoles.

    How long have you been gaming? I'm talking about the games themselves being linear and restricted....Crysis vs. Crysis 2 ring a bell? That's what console peasantry did to the PC....

    Sorry that wording triggers your feels.



    ETA: Sandbox open environment vs go here, reach this checkpoint, don't stray from the main path, don't worry we won't let you anyway.

    I've been gaming for probably 10 years now. How exactly console or not will affect whether a game is linear or not? All that's changing is the hardware, input, and operating system that runs outside the games. Zelda games have not been linear for the paste multiple years for example, and that's a console exclusive. There are plenty of indie games with focus on PC that are 100% linear. Are you talking about fan influence or something?

    I just downloaded the new Hungry Shark World game, very addictive. Other than that I play the heavy games mostly while in my couch or sitting down somewhere having lots of time to kill. The games I play is mostly then GTA Vice City and Prince of Persia Warrior Within. I also have Clash Royale and Thumb Drift for more casual gaming.

    Been playing kingdom hearts but I'm not much of a mobile gamer. I think they've balanced in app purchases with the ability to easily still progress through the game without spending a cent very well.

    Megaman 8-bit Deathmatch. I'm terrible at it, and I don't care that 12 year olds slaughter me.

    Depends on the type I'm in the mood for, and I rarely do anything with IAP (and if it's there I don't buy) but some quality time-wasters are:

    Knights of the Old Republic
    XCOM
    Slay
    Minecraft
    Civilization Revolution
    Crosswords
    Two Dots

    Those are my favorites off the top of my head. For the record, I don't necessarily have tons of time, but I do like to relax by playing.
