People take free for granted for a few reasons - first, they don't have anything invested in it. It was free, they didn't pay anything for it, so they can be as picky or critical as they please because there is no skin off their back.
Second, the "free" everyone is talking about isn't really "free." Whether it is time or gems or coins you must collect, there is a price of admission to continuing these kinds of games. For most, being charged constantly (buy 10 gems, use them, rinse, repeat) for consumable IAP is not the best way to play a game.
These free games prey on a player's impatience, hoping they will spring for some IAP in order to proceed in the game. Is it SO bad to put a price on the game instead?
