How would gambling regulation affect video game loot boxes? Gamers online are arguing that loot boxes are or are not gambling on forums and social media locales of all kinds. Often these arguments involve concern over regulation ruining games in some way or another, but the reality of how this kind of gambling regulation would affect video games, loot boxes and microtransactions is likely far different. Gambling regulations applied to loot boxes in video games would have some interesting effects, and I wanted to talk about how all of that could work.

Video games are commonly argued as being too expensive to make, and as a result we need microtransactions, loot boxes, card packs and all manner of other ethically grey post-purchase monetizations. We've had controversies around Shadow of War, Assassin's Creed Origins, Forza 7, Star Wars Battlefront 2 because of they microtransactions. I dove into the financial documents to analyze the trends in game cost and revenue to find out if video games really are too expensive to make and what I turned up may surprise you. Are they really too expensive to make and produce, or has this argument been constructed out of nothing?

If you desperately want to spend more time in Excel, here's my data sheet. Pulled from company financial reports via online stock traders. Don't expect a pretty sheet though.

Please consider supporting my videos on:
Ninja Theory describes Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice as a Triple A Independent title, so given its’ success can Hellblade be used as a role model for developers looking to break free from the shackles of the big publishers? With a relatively small budget for a game as polished as this, it’s unique focus and experienced team, I’d like to contest the idea that this is just a flash in the pan.

Is 60 dollars too much or too little for a game? is the industry dying out? Is this a sign of a new crash? What can we do and what do developers need to do?

This is the year loot boxes came to gaming in a big way.

Encouraged by Overwatch, "AAA" publishers went all-in on destroying their games in the name of easy money.

And no, Blizzard, you're not special. You deserve as much blame as EA, Activision, Ubisoft, 2K Games, WB, and Microsoft.

In fact, j'accuse!

This video started out as a review for Star Wars Battlefront II, but as I researched the commercials behind it, I began to uncover a consistent pattern from EA that began as early as 2006, and has since come to define much of our industry as other publishers have sought to recreate EA's success. This is the story of Andrew Wilson's golden goose and how it saved EA but cost us AAA gaming in 2017.

Is DLC good? Are microtransactions bad? In online arguments everywhere the terms DLC and microtransactions are often used both interchangeably by some, and distinct elements of games by others. It’s not uncommon to hear gamers say that DLC is good and microtransactions are bad. Microtransactions of notably refers to the size of the transaction, while DLC refers to the content so how can these terms be used to talk about the same things in games? I have a few suggestions for ways to have this discussion, how we can both discuss good and bad microtransactions and DLC.

If you’re watching videos on this channel, then you’re aware of LOOT BOXES, those wonderful new micro-transactions that have begun to define the AAA gaming experience. Unsurprisingly, people have some strong opinions about Loot Boxes, so I’m actually not going to weigh in on one side or the other. Instead, let’s talk about how loot boxes actually work.

Overwatch has launched to a number of controversies including overly generous hitboxes and contentious micro-transactions. Jim Sterling did up a Jimquisition on the topic stating that he is against them in all retail priced games and Totalbiscuit followed that up with a video talking about the pro-consumer nature of these microtransactions.

Specially, I'd like to talk about free to play games, psychological manipulation, loot boxes and gambling in video games.

Star Wars Battlefront 2's Microtransactions are a big problem.

When you used to buy a video game, you would pay the upfront cost and that was it, there were no microtransactions. Over the past decade or so, other forms of transactions creeped in: map packs, story content, season passes and more. This in itself was already controversial as gamers raised the questions about content that was cut from a completed game, then sold at an additional cost to the consumer. But something else has caught everyones attention, Loot Boxes.

The concept of a Loot Boxes is straight forward. For a small fee, normally under $2 or so, you unlock a collection of a few random digital items. Sometimes there are different types of boxes you can buy, which give you some sort of indication as to what you might get, but won’t know until you open the box.

Recent titles such as Mordor: Shadow of War and EA’s Star Wars Battlefront 2 have gained a lot of negative attention for their implementation of this system.

A Loot Box is unequivocally a slot machine snuck into a video game. Thinking it’s anything else is naive. You insert money into a slot machine, pull the lever and hope for a reward - you’re essentially doing the exact same thing with a loot...

Recently a Deadman’s Switch activated that published several leaked documents of an upcoming Data Broker LLC presentation outlining a new AI monetization scheme that will most likely be the probable road map to replacing Loot Boxes as the new primary mode of microtransactions and monetization in mainstream gaming.
