  1. I can’t speak for indie and mobile games, but triple-A games pretty much need micro transactions to make profit on games. Have you not noticed that games have been 60 dollars for more than a decade? They have to account for much higher cost and inflation.

    1. My favorite Games so far, For Honor, Prey 2017, Plants vs Zombies. And i didn’t had to pay DLC. You should put Clash Royale on the list they are assholes

  2. Evolve wasn’t turtle rock studious problem, that was 2k, they wanted to make their money back for buying the IP so made they did what they do best and microtransaction an already expensive game.
