    At the end of the day not all F2P games are terrible most of them however are designed in a way to make you play more or cough up some cash to make things easier. In a sense they are predominantly skinner boxes (ie push a button to get some candy.. repeat). Or they have some other form of psychological addiction mechanic to get you to keep playing.

    There are some out there that are made by people who are interested in making a good game. They just seem few and far between because the market is flooded with the 'crack'-like games that exist just to get you hooked to a point you will start paying for it.

    Its not hard to tell them apart, but it is hard to find the wheat amongst all the chaff out there.

    Based from experience, free to play games are really good and exciting in the sense that you have to spend time playing it and interact with other people to become strong. But, just like what atrakhasis said, most of the free to play games are designed to make players become addicted to it and in the process entice players to purchase items using real money to get stronger in game.
