"Isn't rooting for a big, monopolistic company thats against free software kind of anti-slashdot?"

Making a game like this for free is just not feasible. Games are often far too complex and involve too much maintenance and work to be free. It also takes a lot more than just programmers to put together a good game by today's standards. There are some free games out there that are very good such as (ie. America's Army, Nethack, Wolfenstein Enemy Territory) however it is just not possible to expect all games to be free software.

Aren't you glad you're not getting all the government you pay for now?
