    Nice to see some traditional titles up there. Shame to see 'free-to-play' titles with top gross revenue...

    See I don't mind free to play. It tells you up front that there will be things to purchase in game and if done right that can be balanced and still an enjoyable game.

    Its paying for stuff in a game I paid full price for a balk at.

    Actually warframe (I've been playing for around 2 years) is probably the most balanced 'free to play' games I've seen because you don't actually need to pay anything to get all the important stuff in game (ie warframes, weapons etc). Not saying there aren't other 'issues' with the game but in terms of balance between pay to win and free to play it's in a fairly good place.

    The stuff that is plat only is basically cosmetic. Yes you can trade for mods/prime items you don't have but most people buy and use plat because they want to not because they have to, you can trade your own items for plat as you get extras etc. Although I will admit they could do with increasing the number of free slots for warframes/weapons.

    The only thing I dislike is the use of steam for 'tennogen' stuff (cosmetic) which is sold via steam so is a separate cost to the main game. These are designed by players who get a small percentage of the cost while DE (maker of warframe) and Steam take the rest.

    I have noticed that prices can vary a lot from place to place and then there are the specials that pop up.
    Some of the games on sites like Voidu are even occasionally cheaper than buying on Steam.
    Haven't bought that many online thus far and those have been from Steam and Origin, but now I am going to look around a bit more.

    Www.isthereanydeal.com is brilliant for that. Set up a watch list of games (or import steam/gog wishlists) and then set a price point or percentage discount you want it to alert you at then sit back and it'll email you when that game hits one of your trigger points. Covers about 15 stores but not the grey market key sellers like G2A so you can be confident you're buying legit. Even shows price history so you can see when something is its cheapest ever.

    Half an hour setting it all up on there is time well invested. It's saved me over £25 just in the Xmas sales.
