Or only getting free ones only? If it is free, are you willing to pay for
in game items?
For the most part I don't get games on my phone at all any more. If I do they are ones that are not free but have gone free and usually even then I don't bother. I just don't play mobile games much any more.
At this point all my games that I get are paid.... but all my games are also digital versions of board games that I play.
I use to buy digital versions of board games, but I found the digital form of them made me start disliking games I loved. When you can play a game so frequently and so rapidly, it starts to become a chore. I mean there's an addiction thing happening (for me anyway) and it drives them into the ground. So now I don't buy iPad board games any more and I don't play the ones I have. I enjoy those games SO much more played less frequently with friends or family in a house or wherever.
So what games you buy on your ipad?
As I said before, I haven't bought anything in a long time. I use my iPad occasionally for discord and browsing and stuff, but not even that much any more. I want to get a laptop as that would be a lot more useful to me now. I don't have one but don't have the funds for it right now.
For me, it just boils down to if I like the look of it, I'll get it, be it paid or free.
I have a lot less reluctance to try mobile games as the pricing is so low, if it's a free game and it's done right, I'll buy an iap.
I know a lot people won't dload free titles on principle, but the way I see it, if I'm not paying and it's rubbish then I've lost nothing but a bit of my time. I'll just delete and move on.
I buy games - but rarely for more than £1.50 ($2) and I download free ones - but I never buy IAPs unless they're in-app unlocks or level packs.
Except for Vainglory and Hearthstone, all games I have are premium and paid, from 0.99c upto 19.99usd. Don't really care about P2W freemium BS
I only play games that I have to pay.
For me I rarely play free games. I am 36yo, I have an Ipod (6th gen) and an Ipad Air 1. Neither has 3g. Most free mobile games are internet dependent, so I absolutely hate free games. I think the only game I have kept installed that is free is Clash royale and that is for my kid to play (which I have replaced with riptide, dust and another paid platformer). So, basically all my installed games are paid. As to non-mobile games, I haven't got the new gen consoles (which I think are pretty bad in evolutionary terms when compared to PS2 or even to XBOX 360, which are the ones I have), so no games there (and not buying games anymore for consoles anyway). As to boardgames, I still buy them a lot. However, I think there are great boardgame replacements on digital (ticket to ride, eclipse, waterdeep, etc all very good).
Just checked the App Store and, yes, people are still buying paid games. Football Manager Mobile, a premium game, is in the top 30 highest-grossing apps on the UK charts.
That was my facetious answer. My actual personal answer is, yes, I do buy games. As I'm a sucker for a sale, I have an embarrassment of software stashed in various folders on my iPhone and iPad. Of that, less than 10% was free to download. Like previous posters, I can't bear energy systems or online requirements (don't have the data!), but I have nothing against a solid F2P game, and I'll buy IAP for things like coin doublers, ad removal or new content. Sky Force Reloaded, Super Cat Tales, Dan the Man and Bullet Hell Monday are all great examples. Then there are games such as Looty Dungeon and Nekosan which are perfectly playable as ad-supported games.
Do I buy games? ABSOF******LUTELY!!!
-Mobius Final Fantasy
-Star Wars: Galaxy of Heroes
-Bullet Hell Monday
My 64 GB iPad is otherwise LOADED with PREMIUM (PAID) games that I purchased for high dollar! I really need 128 GB because 64 GB just isn't enough at this point. If you see my iTunes purchase history, you'll understand.
64gb is massive for me, I'm using a 16gb device so you can imagine how much deleting I do
Oh man, you truly have my condolences; I used to have a 16GB iPad....I know the pain. >_<
I still do.... 1st gen mini. Now it is just a media viewer.
Hi cloudpuff. Interesting to read you say ppl won't download free titles. Maybe there are just too many free games.
Thanks for sharing. Now, honest answer from you: would you buy my latest game? If not, why.
