    No, wait, that's not right. 
    I like playing games.



    You're asking people to play a game and unlock stuff instead of buying instant gratification so they can complain about there being nothing rewarding in playing the game they bought. You make no sense, sir /endsarcasm

    Well, I stopped playing ESO because of their money raising strategies. I will never play lootbox games, period. I didn't buy Fallout 76 because I no longer trust them. And I will pass on all of their future games until I see reviews and clear evidence that they won't pull these sorts of in game cash grabs. People in this industry should pay attention to the terrible reputation that their short term thinking is getting them. At this point it's indie games for me, almost exclusively. And I'm totally ok with the industry having the garbage practices that they're using being outlawed. And there are a lot of people like me, like it or not...

    sounds like the female approach to me, hope "you can change what you love"... why do you wanna change what you love, either love it, or let it be, which is what most of us did.

    Just when i thought they couldn't get any lower in my estimation, they proved me wrong! Honestly are there any depths they are not willing to sink to in order to make a few $$ more?  :o

    I am worried about the next Elder Scrolls. Another bad release with day 1 DLC and then they nickle and dime that into the ground too? Although nowadays the expression should maybe be 'dollar and dollar' .

    This shouldn't be a surprise to anyone. It doesn't matter that they are creating problems and then selling you the fix. Bethesda used to be one of my favorite developers, now I won't touch another game from them since they can't be trusted.

    If it weren't for their modding community many of their games wouldn't be in a playable condition or even be as popular as some of the older games are. This is how they choose to reward the community.

    Yeah, but I hear "rat on a stick" doesn't keep so well in them, not wide enough or something.

    How dare you not agree with something then post it on a forum made just to express your opinion! Don't you know you should just accept it?

    Smh.

    Maybe I missed it, but who wrote the article? Nothing against the article, but it is good to see the name of the author.

    The main problem is, until now, anything with a "function" was placed ingame for players to quest for or loot, with skins then sold in the shop. They've changed the whole dynamic, so yeah. People have a right to bitch. Will it help? Nope. But they have the right.

    In my case, any future Bethesda title will be a yarr! matey purchase.

    People could show their distaste by not buying it.  It holds 15 unstackable food items.  I don't see this giving anyone an edge really.  I can't pick it up and throw it at another player and do more damage than without it. I bought one with caps I have earned from quests. I would feel very differently if caps could not be earned in-game.

    Its creepy that people still get upset over MTX. It's not new, and its not going away. Get over it.



    So getting upset over getting ripped off is creepy because it's not new and it's not going away?

    A+ logic there bud

    Can you see applying this to other shit behaviors 

    Tell your wife - cheating with other girls is not new and it's not going away - stop being CREEPY!

    I can't do anything about loot boxes its not my choice to put them in the game. I just deal with the fact they are there by ignoring them. I can choose to cheat on my wife. That's the difference. Your analogy makes no sense in that regard.

    Edit: I also don't get ripped off because i don't ever buy lootboxes or MTX. The only  lootboxes i have ever opened was in Overwatch when I leveled up and got one for free
    I find it hilarious how the posters here most accepting of lootboxes or MTX always put in the qualifier "...but I don't buy them myself."

    I'm starting to not believe you.

    It's always possible that they work in the industry.  Maybe even designing lootboxes.  Don't get high on your own supply, you know...

    I figure by this point the people who say our voice doesn't matter, after the Battlefront 2 debacle, are either grossly out of touch or have ulterior motives.
