Gamers, Loot Boxes are a huge problem that’s been allowed to happen by the gamers. From the very beginning, when Blizzard made this practice with Overwatch this shouldn’t have been allowed. Cosmetic or not, game-breaking or not, we allowed this cancer of gaming to devour us when it was a minor thing.
Certain people are, the ones who will say "it's not harming anyone, they are optional" or "you guys are overreacting"...they are the ones helping spreading this cancer because of the bullshit excuses developers have drilled into their heads to make them not seem as bad.
But journalists should also be to blame because they just seem to ignore this shit when reviewing games. Forza 7, Destiny 2, Shadow of War...hardly anything was said and even the reviews which did say something still gave the game a high mark. If the games don't get good reviews then it's obviously going to affect the developers bonuses and will put some sort of dent in the games sales...only then will the publisher get the message.
Battlefront II will be next I think...can already taste those pay to win features along with that mighty 9.5/10 score.
I know I’m not. I haven’t touched a AAA game with these boxes in them.
The sheep keep buying it so it won't stop, they regard themselves as HARDCORE gamers, just mugs in my opinion. But that's modern gaming for you it's all about cash!!
And the cancer has spread to the gamers themselves. Now buying so much that it's a business model they wont remove.
