Not anymore, since it turned into a "LOL ILL TRADE U xitem for xhat" HEHEHE LOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOL" thing..
TF2 was once the best game ever, however with changes it is no longer an FPS. Its now a first person hat collecting game with an FPS minigame. Its still fun and good for killing time, just not as good as it was. And at its price of $10 it can't really be beat as far as ways of killing large amounts of time.

I played pre-hats for many, many hours at a time. Found a server with toy fort running 24/7 with instant respawns. Turning the tide on a CP was epic on that map with that setup.
TF2 is still a great game. You don't have to buy anything in order to have a good time. I play spy most often using the original load-out. You can be successful and elite in TF2 using nothing but original load-outs (no modified weapons). Everyone who complains about the weapon upgrade drop rates and how you can "omg buy hats for real money the game is ruined!" are people who never played the game before 2009 and probably, most likely suck at the game.
I have never bought anything, and I trade my crates for scrap metal. People are just lazy and don't know how to work the economy in TF2. These kinds of people are the same kinds who sell blues and greens to vendors rather than putting them on the AH in WoW. TF2 is F2P, so deal with it.
Sorry about that.Its a fun game until you own someone repeatedly and he switches to spy, only to repeatedly assrape you with 1shots directly from stealth...

Awesome game. Got ruined by being able to buy new items. Random drops were fun but now everyone has silly bonuses on their weapons that make it so annoyingly unfair you dont have it.
Battlefield 3 and CS:GO gaming community!
You can tell WoW changed the MMO for good when players started complaining about the amount of time they sink, into a time sink.
It's different. Which is enough in itself to try it out.
Why are people caring about items in TF2?, I could probably own most of you with default items, in fact, I use default items most of the time and to top things, everytime they release a new item it drops like in 3 hours from playing the game, at least it does for me, if you are bitching over hats and stuff, you got issues, but I got every weapon in the game, without ever spending a dollar.
To OP: The game is a lot of fun, but it is not an MMO, is a shooter game with classes, it is a lot of fun, but it doesn't fill up the space for an MMO, I would recommend to play an MMO with this on the side.
TF2 is still going strong as one of the best FPS titles out there.
I don't see why people go "OMG - wtb hat for <what ever>", and then saying the game suck. You dont really need the new stuff to be successful at TF2, all it does is keeping the game fresh for those of us who's been playing it since release and just cant let it go.
Bring back Team Fortress Classic and the far2cool leagues, now that was fun and very competitive.

1. The Mann Co. store didn't ruin anything about the game, it's there to get items that are available to you in game for free.
2. ALL weapons have some sort of downside so weapon choice is preference. Most weapons that were plain better got nerfed recently.
3. Hats don't do anything aside from looks, who gives a shit what hats are in the game?
4. Game is awesome, easy to get good at but hard to master, IMO.
If you want to play an FPS, and not an Overglorified game of "Hat-collectors with Guns!" i would suggest something else.
that being said, i used to thoroughly enjoy it, until ever game was about who had the best hats.
