Where do you weigh in on the loot box debate?

Recommended Posts

I have just been reading up on the loot box debate, or should I say "surprise mechanics" debate. 

I am curious what everyone here thinks of it?

Are loot boxes the same thing as gambling? Does it make a difference if they are paid or free?

Loot boxes are definitely a form of gambling and should be subjected to same legislation. Lootboxes are meant to prey on unsuspecting children and people with gambling habit/ lack of self-control and physically and mentally challenged people as well. There have been countless stories about mentally/physically challenged children costing their parents thousands of dollars because the child wanted an item in-game but isn't really aware that it costs real-life money.

I think some of such loot box which have some fair returns to the product in some way can be good but gamble type can be pretty bad.

This doesn't really affect me, because I don't really play those kind of games. But I think that loot boxes should be limited to adult only games. They should not be a part of child friendly games. Because, like @killamch89 said, children have, without realizing it, ended up costing their parents thousands of dollars because of loot boxes.
