The Daily Grind - Do you have an MMO budget?
One of free-to-play's many annoyances -- to me, at least -- is the fact that I have to add up various micropayments if I want to accurately track my MMO budget. With subscriptions, it's an easy $15 line item, whereas with F2P titles that don't offer an elite/legendary/accelerated/spiffy/member option, I'm forced to enter $4.99 for an armor set here, $9.99 for a gambling pack there, you get the idea.

Or I could just say screw it and buy all the incidentals without bothering to keep track, which is no doubt the dream scenario for game company accountants.

I don't do that, though, and as a result I know exactly how much money I spend on MMOs in a given period of time. What about you, Massively readers? Do you have an MMO budget, or do you just buy what you want and get on with it?

Every morning, the Massively bloggers probe the minds of their readers with deep, thought-provoking questions about that most serious of topics: massively online gaming. We crave your opinions, so grab your caffeinated beverage of choice and chime in on today's Daily Grind!
