Why In-Game Ads are Bad

Why In-Game Ads are Bad

Should it be in Free-to-Play?


In This Episode…

Ads are always inevitable when it comes to getting more revenue. Everyone does it and most of the time it’s bad. That has not stopped the gaming companies from trying to do it, too. EA tried in Battlefield 2142 and failed. This time it seemed like they were going to do it again, but, for now, no. I’ll discuss why it’s bad in full-price games, but, free-to-play is fine. Also gaming updates and Cooler Master making ridiculous products.
