I have only two games that have bonus content that you must pay for on armor games. You may think only 2 games with bonus content that you must pay for too get thats nothing to get worked up about. I created an account on armor games because i was under the impression that this site was incorruptible and wouldn't charge for anything on this site except merchandise.Im not worried about the 2 games ( castaway 2 and the last stand union city) having premium content its that Armor games is becoming like Mochi games. pretty soon a lot of games will have premium content you must pay for Which would completely contradict the idea of [quote] free online games

Armor Games itself does not charge for the premium content. Most of the time its the devs themselves doing that.

I'm pretty sure AG get's a portion of it, but it's not their decision.

They get a portion obviously but they don't choose whether devs provide the service or not.

So your basically saying AG is getting paid by the devs and its not their decision? this is confusing.

You're not forced to buy the content, and you still have access to 99% of the game.

Look at it this way. Game Developing is only profitable if you can make a popular game. That way, people click the page, see the ads, and the ad comany pays you on how many people see the page. So to balance the books, the Developer throws in a little bit of extra content for a cost. The Developer makes more money, and s/he can buy better equipment to make better games. So its a win-win.

Yes technically but better programming doesn't always make better games. Plus on one game you unlock a completely different storyline if you buy the premium content. Premium content also has a negative affect it tempts people to hack the game and then post it on a different sometimes changing the name you notice these sites sometimes on google searches . Premium content is plagiarized or stolen more often that other games. If you cant play a game with full content than its just not as good. Its more like you can have access to 80-90% of a game the p2p idea is what i have a problem with.

What you are poking at is piracy, the pirates that do so simply think that the content isn't worth the price. If you think so go ahead and support them, its illegal yes but if you really think having that extra item or an extra bit of game play is so important than support the wonderful people that make them go ahead, honestly the flash games here that provide paid content have only %10 at most of the game.

This argument is more towards a game like club penguin where its a flash game and you have to pay "80-90%" of the content. It doesn't belong here.

You also forgot to mention that Shell Shock Live has packages that you can purchase.
