Pay 2 Win is a concept born of a downward spiral. It's because we're getting uninnovative, bland, soulless games that people are reluctant to pay $60 for a game they increasingly often won't like. So to get people to play, developers have to lie by saying a game is "free", and then micro-transacting gamers into paying >$70. If the game was good it would be able to get $60 upfront for the uncut experience, based on merit (word of mouth).
