Default Online Gaming

Online gaming has turned into a wild trend but at the same time it has turned into a cash cow. For example Everquest online has the simple little catch that you have to pay a monthly fee in order to play game online. The Sims have this little trick as well and I think they were the first ones in incorporating these practices.

And other companies just have free dedicated serves to host Peer 2 peer style games like ATV Off Road Fury 2, Twisted Metal Black Online, Auto Modelista and so on.

Other companies like XBOX made their own little server where you have to pay a license in order for you to play online and to top it off you have to pay it annualy.

My question is. Do you think the games simply should be able to play online for free? Or just pay a one time fee to benefit the companies as well.

I think you should be able to play for free. You pay a lot for the games to begin with.

I honeslt think it could succeed but companies will have to drop their blind greed and concentrate of keeping customers happy. A one time fee is a fair idea. A monthly fee is outrageous.
