With so much money being generated by titles like Candy Crush Saga and Clash Royale on phones and tablets, it’s entirely reasonable that the game industry is taking the free-to-play model very seriously these days on every platform. We’ve done our share of groaning about the nickel-and-diming tactics found on the App Store and Google Play, but there’s still much to enjoy about the free-to-play model when it’s done well.

Dota 2 and League of Legends on the PC are some of the most popular games in existence – both of which are free-to-play titles. Frankly, it’s beyond silly to write off the model entirely when there’s so much critical and commercial success. Clearly, this is more than just a passing fad, and console devs are working hard to get some of that alluring micro-transaction cash. Now let’s jump in, and explore what the free-to-play model has to offer for the average Xbox One or Xbox One X (see on Amazon) player.

I’d buy that for a dollar

While console gamers have grown accustomed to dropping $ 60 (or more) on a game, it’s good to see more variety in the marketplace. And just like a large price tag may not fit a small-scale indie game, it’s important to remember that the free-to-play model isn’t one-size-fits-all either.

F2P is definitely here to stay, but not at the expense of other business models — in conjunction. Poorly made free-to-play games can easily leave a bad taste in your mouth, but it’s not fair to dismiss the entire concept outright. After all, we’ve seen numerous free-to-play games on the PC garner massive critical acclaim, and the concept is still relatively novel on consoles. Give these games a chance, and you might just find a game that you really love.
