But overall I don't feel like F2P is my thing, and I try my best not to support them.

It's ironic how "free to play" is actually the complete opposite of what the name implies, and especially mobile game developers are now coming to the conclusion that F2P is really the best way to make money.
While microtransactions on consoles are fairly reasonable, when it comes to mobile devices, some developers really take the piss. It's like one game I heard about (and there's a video of it, but I can't find it right now) it's free to download, but you only have one level and one character. Each additional character costs money (a lot of money), as does each level. And the thing is that it's a really shitty game which was essentially a clone of another game. Some kid ran up a huge bill in the thousands over that.
