How do we stop the lootbox menace?

The problem besides gambling is that these things are ruining games because devs are basing game progression and game design on these things

We need to stop these before they start infecting other games

No one asked you to do anything faggot. But STFU and don't discourage others from trying to take actions, just because you have an autistic fit of rage.

And a friendly reminder that today almost all restaurants got vegan dishes and a lot of companies don't experiment on animals anymore only because a few people wouldn't stop screaming about animal rights. Sometimes it's really that easy affecting public opinion and create change.

But like I said, no one asked for your help. Enjoy sucking that massive cock and be quite, if you have nothing to contribute anyway.

Government regulation. It is gambling directed at children, it’s abhorrent, and it should be regulated in the same way, if not harsher, than traditional gambling.

Nolan Parker

Why is gambling bad? Because it plays into an addiction, bringing people to waste money to fuel it. Publishers purposefully play up the desire of the consumers regard the product, and sell the game to minors. Loot boxes aren't technically gambling because they use a fake currency bought with real currency that cannot be easily translated into real currency again. Every single sick and morally wrong aspect of gambling is still there.

"Disney targets 'gambling lite' to minors through the latest game in the Battlefront series."

This statement is not wrong.

Kevin Peterson

Carson Martin
Carson Martin

Lootboxes themselves are not bad design, and you could certainly build a game around them (think of a treasure hunting game where you'd dig up lootboxes, for example). The problem is that they are monetized and added into games that they do not fit in, both from a gameplay standpoint and a thematic standpoint.

If a game had lootboxes, but they cost nothing to the player and were at the core of the gameplay design, like the example given above, I doubt anyone would have a problem with them.

Ryan Jenkins

I suppose the next question is where do we go from here? Assuming loot boxes either go or stay for a while my guess would be the next step is making literally every game episodic like Hitman or the new FF7. Break it into 3+ parts, justify it by saying they want to get material into the hands of gamers sooner, roll in money.

Benjamin Ramirez

That "gambling" and "a form of gambling" are two vastly different things regarding american law. Technically little timmy telling his little sister that on tails she's taking his share of chores for the week and on heads he does is a form of gambling. The FBI is not going to arrest little Timmy. Claiming that a form of gambling is gambling is false. That doesn't make lootboxes any less shitty, toxic and addiction-prone though.

except the market disagrees

Devs are in business to make money, so they will take actions that maximize their profits. If two companies offered you the same position, in similar work environments but one company offered to pay you $50k a year and the other offered you $100k a year, don't pretend you'd take the $50k a year job.

Don't buy games made by publishers that practice it (at all). Voice your concerns online and much more importantly, send a letter to your politicians asking for them to consider regulatory laws to treat them the same way gambling is treated (also might be a good idea to include a request that they expand current gambling laws to include transactions made using virtual or representative currency as that is a loophole that loot boxes often exploit).

Tyler Thomas

The "are lootboxes gambling" controversy has already come and gone and been decided in favour of the corporations. You're going to have to stretch the truth at several points to make "Disney endorses children gambling" stick, and it's so blatantly a spin that you probably won't.

Yeah, isn't it? All I'm saying is this is a dumb plan that can only backfire and everyone is getting upset.

Landon Jackson
Landon Jackson

I'm not discouraging anyone from taking action, I wasn't going to buy this piece of shit game in the first place and most of the people raising a fit about this weren't going to either, and they certainly weren't going to purchase microtransactions.

This is the future of gaming, there's far more money to be made off exploiting a handful of gullible individuals with microtransactions and for far less effort than there is in releasing quality games that people want to play.

No one cares what you think, no one cares what Sup Forums thinks, no one cares what reddit, or jim sterling, or the games media think, none of you are worth as much to EA, Activision, or any other developer as the guy who blows his entire paycheck on lootboxes.

If you don't like it, feel free not to buy the game, feel free to rage about it on internet forums if it makes you feel better, just know it doesn't accomplish anything. If anything you're free advertising, you'd have a better chance of passing legislation banning lootboxes than you would convincing publishers to stop including them. If you like games and don't like where this is going, there's literally nothing you can do but wait and hope the bubble bursts.

Josiah Martin
Josiah Martin

It's the same exact business model you see in mobile games and we all know how profitable those pieces of shit are. It's infinite money, especially if it's tied to a popular franchise like Star Wars.

A few people with really deep wallets will ensure the rest of us have to deal with these moneysinks forever. At best they'll reduce the entry fee from $60, but that's just to sucker more people into buying into it as ingame monetazation gets worse to compensate. There's literally nothing you can do to stop it.

EA as a publisher isn't doing bad. They got ways of nickel and diming everyone from all their other games.

Andromeda was left to die and Visceral was closed since they weren't profitable to sustain. The devs themselves will be taking most of the flak instead of EA.

Do the patrician move : scoff at people clearly not understanding the futility of their existence, plight, and shit and lurk while sipping your preferred choice of beverage. Also how the fuck is the bubble supposed to burst if the agents that are supposed to make the bubble burst, the consumers, don't do jack shit?

You guys do realize that there's many old games to play right? Wii, ds, gba, Ps2, gamecube, dreamcast, ps1, n64 and sega saturn all have decent emulators. Theres also og xbox in the mix and the games a super cheap at the moment.

You don't really need hurt yourselves with this modern garbage. Most of you crybabies will still buy the games regardless and forget about the controversy very quickly.

Aiden James

Eh, I don't know how it could possibly backfire. People are just keeping their spine and aren't giving up their place on an issue just because they aren't being heard. I suppose you could really drive yourself crazy lying to yourself that every time it happens is 'the last straw'. It makes sense that people don't change their mind just because a business doesn't revolve around it, though.

Why wouldn't he fucking scream at the fucker shitting in his soup?

Camden Mitchell

You literally can't do jack shit if we're being realistic here.
Even if by some miracle you convince government that lootboxes are so far removed from sports cards and tcgs that they require increasing regulation, the best you're going to get is a CC check-in system to ensure parents are fully in control of juvenile finance.
The government isn't going to topple over literally 10s of millions of dollars of free tax revenue because some autists don't like it what it does to game development and virtue-signal "please protect the children!"
This is what you signed-on for with PC gaming, Valve, Blizzard, especially Blizzard (first physical DLC packet system with WoW tcg, first lootbox system with WoW tcg, one of the first games-as-service models with WoW, right behind Valve with store-front cosemetics, etc).
You can only vote with your wallet and bitch and moan, and look what's that done for you thus far.

Whales like this kind of system, they like having access to things normal players do not and they like having a statistical advantage over non-whale players. Devs only care about non-whale players so long as there are enough around for whales to shit on.

Luke Young

Non-Whales DO matter. The gameplay has to be good enough to hang on to more frugal players, and you need a healthy player environment -- because Great White needs peons to lord over with his ultra-rare baseball cap and he can't in a dead game.

How do we stop the lootbox menace?

Make video games less mainstream. Since it is the mainstream audience being as profitable as they are for them is what is enabling them to do and get away with such shit.

So unless one can get a time machine and go back to the ps1 era and stop sony from laying the foundation for the dude bro audience that then opened the door for the normie mainstream audience to take its hold. Then there is nothing really that can be do aside from somehow becoming more profitable than normies.

Justin Howard
Justin Howard

It's a good way to keep away addiction to lootboxes in one's self. Also who cares if people are offended by this money-eating scheme, what's the problem with 'being manipulative' to say it's an addictive waste of money? Seems pretty wholesome and budgetary, to me. Lootboxes are just a way for a business to earn cash, they're manipulative as it is, so who cares what anyone says to complain about them?

Austin White

Just trying to be lucid. How are they not gambling? Putting money in to roll to receive something you want randomly at house-determined odds. Nothing manipulative about calling that gambling.

The lootbox is an arbitrary wrapper, I could say that the joy of watching a slot machine move is a set object as well. Point is, the distinction is highly semantic, but since it's all based on a dice roll, people who are trying to get a specific item will spend more money at the mercy of a dice roll. There's no use in calling it not gambling.

I don't care. I honestly do not care anymore. There used to be a time when I was like "they're ruining good games with these shady monetization models" but they're not ruining what would otherwise be good games, they're producing shit games in the first place when tainting them with pay2win shit like that so I don't even feel like I'm missing out. You can play your AAA cancer and cry about how unfair it is on top, I'll stick to indie / jap stuff where people haven't lost their sense of artistic integrity yet

This isn't even me "boycotting", if people suck this shit up and it continues I don't care, if the consumers are fed up and force western big budget publishers to fuck over their customers less, even better. But I honestly doubt that will happen.
