I don't think loot boxes should be banned. More rather, they should be age restricted to adults and teens requiring to have parental consent to make any real transactions in games.


And what's stopping teens from lying about their age or lying about getting parental consent? Or just stealing their parents' credit card numbers to get around it.

I do agree that a full ban probably wouldn't work, but I'm not sure what else COULD be done.

I agree with you on the retail game part. What you pay is what you should get.
But when it comes to f2p apps and games. It should be up to the consumers to decide if they want to pay for premium currencies.

If they're going to ban loot boxes.
They mind as well ban BOOSTER PACKS for card games too. After all, those are basically real world gacha loot boxes too

Unless they have a guarantee that one could get at least one SR or SSR thing from a ten pull.

@Selaphiel
This is the first thing a proper parent should do to discipline his entitled childs and manchilds.



There. Entitled childs and manchilds want to regain their internet access? Then first they should earn that privilegie, and then do well every single day of their lives to keep it, since as long a child and manchild live under daddy's roof, stuffing themselves, hoarding toys and spending all day long in bed enjoying the lazy, easy life leeching away daddy's money, internet access isn't a right but a privilegie.

Once they leave the house and support themselves with their own money, they get to do whatever they want without owing an explanation to anyone, though. Hey, fair is fair.

Lootboxes are different from booster packs.

In a BP, you are guaranteed to get access to the specific product you're purchasing.

Loot boxes, on the other hand, pull from a larger loot table, and in some cases can contain nothing of value.

It's the same reasoning that skill tester machines are not regulated but slots are.

BP are still largely up to luck and chance. You are "guaranteed" to at least get something. But getting the specific thing you want is a different story. I know from experience back when I collected Yu-Gi-Oh cards.

The game I'm playing, Fate/Grand Order, follows a similar formula. Just virtual and has gameplay and story.

Unfortunately too many parents don't know the meaning of "proper" these days. Spoil their kids all the time and give into demands.

Just use the Hispanic method of discipline and whip them with belts, sandals and cords, it worked for my parents when I stepped out of line.

That doesn't work as well as people think.

And before you say "well it worked for me" I really don't give a damn what one situation in a sea of literally millions of different ones represents.

internet access isn't a right but a privilegie.
Regardless of anything else, I disagree with that idea. There was a time that was the case, in the early days of its existence, but we now exist in a time when banking, shopping, finding a job, working a job, learning, doing school assignments, paying bills, and about a million other things require you either have internet access, or have access to internet access. We have tied our employment, our finances, our medical history… heck, our lives to this thing. And not having access to it, not having the ability to use all those things so many people and companies and governments, even, have come to depend on it for, becomes a bigger hindrance every day.

Like it or not, internet is not really a privilege anymore, and we ought to stop treating it as such.

Depends on the situation. If someone just mooches off their parents without doing a damn thing, then no. They should be treated like a child as they act like a child.

When weighing the positives vs the negatives, physical punishment of that kind overwhelmingly has move chances for negative outcomes.

The problem with punishment of that nature is that in order for it to be effective it needs to be applied evenly, and consistently, which is difficult to do when relying on emotion.

Authoritative parenting is superior to authoritarian and permissive, and the data from hundreds of thousands of parental units supports that.

There are clear distinctions between predatory loot systems and ones made in earnest.

Another thing about the gacha games I play is that you can gradually aquire some of those premium currencies through gameplay. In some games, they have a two currency system for the premiums. One currency aquired through gameplay, the other is purchased. Both currencies share the same function. Particularly in another gacha game I play, Dragalia Lost.

Yeah that makes sense. It wasn't like my parents were abusive or none of that, they were just going by preconceived methods from their culture that they thought would work in disciplining me and my brothers cause likely, that method was applied to them when they were children.

I like you. Here, you deserve a cold one.



Way too many people want to keep living the easy life of a spoiled child entitled to everything they want and at the same time demand to be treated as mature and responsible adults, despite never doing any adult stuff.
It's either one thing or the other. Not both of them at once.
