    Not bad for a game listed in the free category.

    Ive never played either of those games(just not my kinda game iap or not). But I’m one of those who are in the hate it side. I don’t play any game I have to pay to progress. Fact of so many games is to get near that top costs hundreds of dollars. I’m not putting that out on a game. Pay to win or pay to keep playing are things I hate. I only pay buy once and maybe buy expansions type. Needless to say, I don’t play many games on my phone lol.

    • The thing that frustrates me about Clash of Clans is that it’s a great game bogged down by an emphasis on free-to-play.

      We, as adults know better. But what is the difference between this and when we used to go to Arcades to play Mortal Kombat when MK3 was sitting at home. I remember borrowing like $40 from my mom and it was gone in 15 minutes at the arcade.

      Honestly, this is the only way the gaming industry survives because as a business owner, you can’t survive on a pay once model. All technology from the 70s and 80s weren’t profiting until they shortened the lifespans on their products.

    am I missing something….. 1.3 + 0.779 = 2.079 billion. Where did the 3 billion (from the title) come from and the 2.79 billion. I’m a bit confused about the numbers. Still, it’s impressive to see such a simple idea somehow becoming such a big money maker.

    This makes me sad for the future of gaming.

    I keep wondering who are all those i****s spending real money in those games? I do pay free to play games, but I never actually pay. Not because I’m cheap, but out of principle. I would gladly pay one time price for everything unlocked, but I ain’t no cow for milking.

      I used to think the same, but then I thought how stupid I was when I used to pay 1$ at the arcades for 3 minutes of play. I think this is healthy for the gaming industry.
