Which F2P methods do players find ethical and acceptable?
So I find tons of issues with this.
playersare simply not a single entity
- each answer will be a list of answers
- answers are very likely to become outdated quickly w/ cultural changes
- answers are very likely to become outdated as additional F2P methods are developed
- answers will be backed up on anecdotal evidence
- answers will based upon observations of specific communities
So all answers will (for a better word) expire quickly and be very incomplete. I don't think these issues are made okay due to it now being a community wiki. (I thought it was accepted that community wikis were not a crutch for questions that are a bad fit for the Q/A format of the site). Additionally being a game developer doesn't make one more qualified to answer this question, in fact most people are answering drawing upon their personal experiences as a consumer.
Also Ethical F2P monetisation methods is not analogous to Why might a PC game have a set number of resolutions? as was argued in the comments.
The answers to Why might a PC game have a set number of resolutions? take into account 2 things, limitations in developer manpower, and technical reasons. Being a game developer actually makes you more qualified to ask this question (it doesn't for the F2P one) and the answers are much less time sensitive.
