In recent years, games from this genre (or payment model) have been sprouting everywhere and in numerous amounts. X Before around the time of WoW, good MMO games were rare, but mediocre and bad ones hardly even existed since nobody would buy or play such a thing. Then came the "Free" to play model, and what we have now is a felt 5 new F2P MMO games per month. For some reason, the developers of these games seem to think that the userbase is infinite and big enough that all these games can have a share of the wealth. Who really plays all these games? Why is this the current "goldmine trend" among game developers? What's your opinion on the general quality of these?
