What makes these transactions stick around and what’s the difference with microtransactions vs DLC?
Both have 1 thing in common.. Greed
You may as well call making a game (or ANYTHING) in general greed then because the only reason they are made is to make money. I have no problems with dlc that is made after a game has been released because it extends the game.
Make Free, Public Domain, Creative Commons games assets like furniture, buildings, plants, characters, gameplay engine, graphics engine, etc. Complete AAA games could be free. Hoping Luminous Engine would go Open-Source. SquareEnix please do it, you'll benefit greatly.
