    Just don't support them. There are so many good games out to try. Vote with both your time and your wallet.

    I'm playing Darkwood right now and I'm having a blast... Also kinda shitting my pants.

    Almost every triple A title in the past 5 years has microtransactions (which is the category I'm tossing loot crates into) on top of DLC. Of course, the number 1 defense is "you dont have to buy them" and number 2 being (but doesn't always apply) is "They can be earned in game" but who really dictates what a complete game is and at what rate is fair that you're earning things in game? These are things that have no standard and vary from player to player. This division is also why these things will be more common place in games. You're already seeing it now with microtransactions being temporary pretty much when you buy the orcs in Shadow of War since they can permanently die. Deus Ex did a similar tactic, linking microtransactions to a one time use per save, not per game restart. The only way to progress in Battlefront 2 is through loot crates.

    I remember, many moons ago, when we tried to warn of micro-transactions going full retard if people kept supporting them.  Well, here we are.

    lol and It won't go away until it is considered a form of gambling. Pretty much someone is going to have to sue over their own stupidity and win. With the way things are becoming now,  I don't see that happening.

    Support what you like with your time and money. That will get you a lot farther than complaining over the things you don't like other people doing.

    Cant remember where I read it, think it might have been gamespot? It comes out to 360 natches to unlock one gun or around $50 worth of crates.. Not willing to find out if that's true or not.

    That's a great question. If so then you should support it. If not then you should find things you like and support that.

    While that was about 300% more nerdrage then I feel for the subject I have to agree with Francis, Lootboxes sucks.

    I was just reading about the loot box debacle in Forza 7.  I'm hoping microtransactions don't gain too much traction (pun intended) in the racing genre.

    I don't care about lootboxes so long as the items I want from them are not loot box exclusive. I'm never going to buy a lootbox. I never have in any game. Generally that doesn't hold me back though as most games that have them either toss me an occasional lootbox for free or have other ways I can get the items inside them.

    If it were possible Oregon Country would be restored. That's Oregon, Washington, Idaho, and western Montana. It would be great.

    The trouble might be with the newly formed California Republic. If they keep trying to bring that nasty national chain beer into our country we might have to erect border portals and erect a wall.

    It must really suck when you go ANYWHERE because just about every place you go charges for anything "extra" and yes loot boxes are something extra to the game.

    I'm playing two games which have loot boxes, and I simply don't buy any.

    So why is it bad that Shadows of War has microtransactions but it's okay that Minecraft has them? I've not seen any rant threads about microtransactions in Minecraft and it's a much bigger game with more influence.

    Which version of Minecraft has that type of microtransaction? Don't the console versions / phone version only support skins? Even though I'm not entirely against lootboxes I think it's a completely different type of microtransaction.

    There's something similar to loot boxes, in which you didn't want, costs money after the fact, came from complacency in trusting people, and is damn hard to get rid of after you got it. The only difference for most people is that STDs are free and didn't require a $60 initial cost.
