1. EVE Online
- Business Model: free-to-play with microtransactions
- Platform: PC
EVE Online is life. No, EVE Online is the definition of an MMO. In fact, it doesn't get more MMO than this. No other game offers such far-reaching conflicts, often resounding beyond the game itself. Skirmishes between large corporations, betrayal, fraud and know-how are on the agenda here. Battles can shake the whole universe of EVE Online and change the face of the game forever! And yet it's still just a space simulator, in which the player pilots his ship to be able to fight, trade or explore.
In EVE Online, nothing is imposed on you – we make all the calls. You don't have to take part in big conflicts or join powerful alliances. Nothing prevents you from playing alone, digging for minerals, and slowly earning credits for a better ship, while learning various skills. This title is characterized by a lively community and a huge amount of options, as well as time – you really have to sacrifice a lot to achieve anything here. At the same time, EVE Online fully compensates for this commitment, offering things no other game can provide.
In a nutshell
Who's this game for? For people without a life of their own who want to devote all their free time to a game that resembles an Excel sheet, and who do not mind playing for corporations.
Is it supported on regular basis? Yes, although updates could appear faster.
Is it pay-to-win? The shop does not affect the fun, although it provides bonuses.
