Why does it matter if a game has microtransactions or not? Is the game good? Then why punish yourself from playing a good game? I play Destiny 2 on console and its amazing and a ton of fun...I'm not gonna self harm myself by not playing it just because of some loot boxes or whatever. I'm gonna buy Star Wars Battlefront 2, because I love star wars and its looking to be another great game.
Too many people rage against microtransactions and DLC...and the vast majority of time they'd have no effect on the persons game.
Oh well, I hope those people leave the gaming genre so people who actually LIKE games can enjoy games without a bunch of whiners complaining about them.
And wasn't there a pro-microtransaction article just recently praising loot boxes and microtransactions? It was for battlefront 2 lol
Just like that article on this site, I learned to stop worrying about things like this and just enjoying the game itself. Now I have far more fun in all kinds of games.

For years now,the gaming industry's been exploiting the same human behaviours that the casinos and online gambling and betting sites do,and no one is paying attention.
Nonsense, besides the fact one is very PVP focused vs the other on PVE, (which many here will tell you are mutually exclusive audiences) everyone is always telling me gamers regularly play more than one title at a time.Scot said:CarpeOmnia said:I agree and I would like to hope Pantheon and Camelot Unchained bring a sense of the old school community back, whenever they open.Viper482 said:all branching to one thing.....community. To me that is what todays MMOs are missing. You can have it on a smaller scale with the right guild, but it just will never be the same as long as the majority of MMO mechanics cater to the solo player.
I would hope the time between them opening is going to be a couple of years, otherwise once again decent MMO's will split the player base and they will not be the success they deserve to be.
