Yes, we're starting the freemium battle with our kid now.
He notices those game commercials, and tells us how awesome those games would be on the phone. We tell him they aren't free, and we aren't paying for
the goodies he would need to actually do well at them.
Then we patiently explain the term "pay-to-win" to him all over again.
Most the ones I tried it wasnt even about paying to be able to do well, but paying to be able to even do the "fun" part faster / more often. Note that
fun part would be over right about the moment you're done spending the "Canadough". Then right back to waiting again.
The only one I found and still play is Clash Royale. You have to wait to get more cards, but you get all the cards you need to advance for free while
the fun part is instantly when you hit the go button whamo you're in the match, again and again and again. Then they have so many 'cards' (that give
you the units you play with) that there's more combinations of them you can enter battle with than there are powerball odds.
But I advise you get all the old console emulators and jam them out with thousands of Neo Geo, SNES, Sega, etc games. Those games were meant that when
you bought them they'd last you a good while if you only had one.
