    Oh you mean like an entire game store worth of 30-40 nerds all sitting around someone opening a MTG alpha pack and cheering when there's a black lotus? Or how about 5 actual friends opening card packs in a living room from a booster box they all go in on? You're ignorant and drawing arbitrary lines in the sand and attempting to say one is worse than the other.

    And that is gambling and these products are sold to kids.
    Just... like... pokemon...

    Do you think its ok to encourage gambling to kids who havent even developed their brains enough to be as judgemental as you are?
    Nope! Which is why I'd shield my kid from it and tell them to fuck off when they begged for the CC. OR I'd even use it as a lesson opportunity. Let them take a few hits, then cut them off so they could feel the pull of addiction and gambling and force them to cope.

    Well that is a different point all together. One I agree with inb4 shocked.jpg. But I also wouldnt be for legalizing them for kids, I'd let their brain develop first, mainly the frontal lobes which impacts decision making.

    Same as gambling. But hey you seem to think its cool abusing peoples weakness to make a quick buck so I think im done with the convo. I actually have empathy for people so we clearly have different opinions on this.

Why can't they just put the mount up for 20$? Or at the very least have all the rewards 20$ mounts and you gamble on what one you get. People don't spend tons of money on lootboxes because they are fun they do so because they are addicts or they don't want the 20$ they spent to be a complete waste and so end up spending 200$ to get the only worth while item in the box. And half the time they don't even realize how much they spent because games obscure the amount you spend by making you exchange your cash for a secondary currency.
    Oh but lootboxes are meant to be fun. In corporate way which is to use exact color, sounds and shapes to trigger specific regions in our brains. Thats why they are bright, colorfull and with happy or triumphant music.

    Well yes, because we have eating dissorders in our world. Glad we agree.

    And before you do it - dissorder mean you cant control it.

    Exactly how many establishments are limited in how much food they can sell someone? Even the disorderly fatasses who walk through their doors?

    And I never get a rush from loot boxes. Which is rather the point. Just because someone is weak-willed or even has a psychological issue doesn't mean the company needs to be regulated around that. Those people have to deal with their issues individually.

    Why? Because logic dictates it should stay the same or be even lowered.

    The comparison is a silly one. I mean they're not gonna care about eating disorders if they dont give a shit about gambling addicts.

    There needs to be some oversight into the market of online cards because of how many you can buy in a single sitting with no oversight. Someone will quickly become full on cupcakes and not be able to eat anymore. Someone can open card packs all day and night as long as their is money available

    Food, compared to video games is necessary to life. So there should never be a limit or shortage of food. Like ever.

    Game companies know this. Thats why there is no hard limit on how much you can spend. Which would actually be ethical to do. Even a prompt that say "uh oh, you have spend 30$ in the last hour, maybe reconsider next one?" or something - we have similar system for other things like "you watching this monitor for 3h straight TAKE A FUCKING BREAK"

    Yeah exactly.

    Hell even WoW reminds you to go outside and thats damn activision!

    People should be perfect though. And companies should be allowed to take advantage of people if they are not perfect. Makes total sense if you're insane.

    Yeah those poor people voting with their wallets for what is the biggest "funpay minibuy" scam in the industry that its not only more profitable than most AAA releases but sending the message its the goal all games from big publishers should chase is a crowd that should be lauded as the brave heroes they are and not complete fucking rubes that know better but do it anyway. All those guys who spend 2 grand on "muh feefa innit bruv" every other year can't be the butt of jokes for falling for the most transparent habit forming domapine release hustle since the invention of the strip club. Truly they are wise owls we have much to learn from and deserve respect.

    Are you actually comparing people spending thousands on drawing virtual sportsball players to feel a momentary jasm of a dopamine rush in their bingbingwahoo games with people so poor they have to live on the street?

    Like those are comparable life situations?

    Yeah bro, i'm the asshole here.
