If you’re a somewhat frugal person, and I am, then gaming in general is a great hobby to have. There are endless ways to spend money, sure, but if you’re smart about it, patient, and disciplined, you can reap hundreds of hours of entertainment for little to nothing.
This works for me, because the way we do our family budget, each of us only has a small monthly allowance for extra purchases. I usually start the month weighing what I’m going to buy so that I’m not impulse spending, and I’ll divvy that money up between, say, a new book and a game or a season of a TV show or what have you. MMOs do not usually get a lot of funds from me as a result. I generally don’t NEED to spend money on them, nor am I usually tempted into a position of WANTING them.
