Why would you want to play things like eliminate...

Why do people get into games (agency wars, touch pets, izombie?) that are free but you end up wanting to pay up to 60 for in game points?! If you don't get the game in the first place you won't get sucked in... Or am I missing something? Are they actually good and worth the money

Because Eliminate isn't text based. The rest of them, because people have both time and money to waste.

Did you just make this thread because you spent a lot of money on one them? (non-confrontational question)

Yeah but people don't care about the money they will waste on it. They want to pay the game and get sucked in cause they think the game will be fun and obviously think it is, so technically they are getting pleasure from playing it...

well elminate is a FPS... so its uncomparable with those text based mmos. Play eliminate, doesnt cost you a dime, and is a pretty fun FPS.
