TF2 is free because of micro transactions.Pretty much. Most, if not all, F2P games have some sort of store to make profit. That's why I prefer buying a game.
I don't see how DLC doesn't qualify as some sort of micro transaction. Sure, lots of titles don't have any DLC, but more and more titles are becoming games based around DLC.
Also, I bought a couple things from the TF2 store. For one reason, to be able to get more backpack space than just one tiny page, which was already filling up. For the other reason, I just wanted a few items quickly. I would have spent the minimum of $0.49 for one item, but I can't charge less than $5 to a steam account.
I know that I would never buy any weapons for $8, or any god damn hats for $15. But, some people do. So, micro transactions work in the long run.
