I am looking for a new game and finding searching hard.
The problem is that most games have in app purchases these days. So I eliminate a lot of quality games by trying to filter those out.
But at the same time, some games are abusive with it. Frequently requiring an in app purchase every few levels or to replace hours and hours of pointless grinding.
I want to filter out ONLY the second kind. I have found that “pay to win” comes close, but it is not the same. I have played many great games that allow paying to win, but did not require it. (Warframe for example)
Is there a common term (that I can use for searching) that means games with in app purchases where you HAVE to pay or you CAN’T win?
