Micro transactions are ruining video games

0 have signed. Let’s get to 500!


Video games today are a multi billion dollar industry. Over 30 billion dollars were spent by consumers in 2016. Its becoming more commonplace to include Micro transactions in games. When this new trend started it was to purchase things to make your character look better.... however its becoming common to purchase 'loot boxes' where you essentially pay to gamble on whats inside. These loot boxes are not contrained to mere cosmetics.... they can give you an edge, especially in multiplayer games.

There are NO disclaimers on boxes or download links, and as well as creating a gambling environment, its ruining an industry built by people who do not want to gamble, they just want to play games. 

When you pay for a game, or content... that should be all you pay, unless its purely cosmetic and DOESNT AFFECT ACTUAL GAMEPLAY.

It simply has to stop.
