    • Loot boxes are fine in any game as long as they are 1) only cosmetic 2) and you can buy a specific item separately without having to buy loot boxes

    • Siege shows good examples of good and bad microtransactions. Alpha Packs (loot crates) can't be bought and have exclusive items in them as well as the game having a currency system for select skins you can buy. It's a little iffy on how it deals with the operators but they did a good job on reducing

    • Anyone who says that 60$ isn’t enough to pay for development costs is retarded. Even with free dlc and no loot boxes, if they sold 1,000,000 copies, which is way less than what cod sells every year, that’s 60,000,000$ right there. Way more than what it cost to make the game.

But that price has remained constant that's why game companies release half finished shit with expensive DLC. I'd rath

    • Loot boxes are gambling, and should be regulated as such, and they should not be included into games targeted towards young children. Plus, if lootboxes are for "covering development cost" then why do big game publishers always layoff so many staff as a money saving technique?
