[PCPer] NVIDIA Joins the Bundle Game: Up to $150 in credit on Free-to-Play games for all GTX buyers - Page 7

post #61 of 171
It's actually not a bad idea. There are free alternatives to purchasing single player games, but no such free alternative exists for acquiring in game cash.

Don't care about WoT (played it, not fun) or Hawken (never heard of it until now), but $50 for Planetside 2 is relevant.

IF the bundle still applies to the 7xx series, and IF I feel like dropping $50 on Planetside 2, then I'll do price/performance calculations comparing 7xx to 8xxx with -$50 from the 7xx.

People if you have no idea about something then do not talk about it.
Yeah, FTP doesn't mean anything when it comes to quality, as PS2, LoL, and some other games have shown. Between PS2 and LoL I've easily sunk $450-500 into "free" to play games. AMD's offering is definitely higher profile, but it comes down to preference.

If it was something like Dota 2 where you can use the money for many things i would consider it a good deal.

Those same people don't care about GPUs like you? Then you too say that these free-to-play games are inferior to AAA titles. Oh man I swear that many people at OCN are living under a rock for gaming matters

I just thought that people here have more knowledge about games than average people, and now I see most people here saying that free-to-play equals something cheap for poor people. I guess in the end this is just an overclocking forum and not a gaming forum

So you can see the difference a Nvidia card makes compared with a Amd tiny console gpu doesn't seem like a fair comparison.
