Loot Boxes

Postby Leisher » Thu Dec 07, 2017 9:39 am

Chris Lee, a rep from Hawaii, wants to classify loot boxes as gambling, which would then make it illegal to sell them to people under 21.

I'm all for capitalism, but I love this idea. It reminds me of how they used tax evasion to take down Capone.

I don't think the market could fight against this trend on its own. Too many kids involved not using their own money. Thus, too many people willing to but these things fucking over those who don't want it.

It'll be interesting to see how far this goes to because there are many, many other "mystery" boxes out there. Is loot crate gambling? How about all those figures in sealed boxes you see at the stores? I've purchased a few of those with no idea what I'm getting. (I have three Ricks, a dumb Rick, and Unity.)
