Free-to-play games are nothing new – in truth, they’ve been around just as long as we’ve had video games, in some form or another. I thought I’d take a look into how and where the idea developed, and where things might go from here.
It’s a weird thing to say, but it’s true – after around 20 hours with Warframe, I can safely say that I have barely scratched the surface. This indicates a couple of things: 1., that the game has an enormous amount of content, and 2., it’s likely incredibly complex. That said, I also feel I’ve played enough to provide my impressions on the game (and read into that as you will – it took me 20 hours to get comfortable enough to form a solid opinion). In brief: I’ve fallen in love with this game, but boy does it require a time investment.
