  1. Why am I evil changeling. I demand justice. I am fluffy and innocent D: 

  2. There is no question in that industry went fully Icarus way. Normally I would even laugh about it, because this is level of stupid that can be rarely seen in business world. And it is correct, industry is begging quite hard to get wrecked even more. It is mind blowing that everyone lashes out on it and all it says is "oh, we disagree with all the excessive research, because we disagree". It gets on my nerves a lot, because at this point they just point a Fat Man from Fallout franchise towards their heads and pull the trigger til they run out of mini nukes. But industry is merely a "victim" (or more like a criminal facing justice). It is gamers, who have deciding voice here - they are, who government listened to the most, disregarding industry almost right away as dishonest and secretive. It is we, who have the real influence on how deeply will government try to go. In many ways we are even regulating loot boxes now as information delivered by players heavily affects the investigation. Industry, for once has limited significance. Industry made itself a laughing stock. It has no room to negotiate and burned every bridge they possibly could with inconsistent lies and poor rebranding attempts. Now it is our task to ensure their mistakes will not cost us too much. With current attitude there's a risk that eventually it may. And when that happened it will be our fault as we made politcians too comfortable in our own, little world.
  3. The difference is government is not doing anything outside loot boxes yet (btw for clarification I speak about UK one, Polish of course doesn't care xD). They don't try to negotiate. They get things done with loot boxes and that's it. Problem is people by praising involvement to this excessive level do tempt them to try to dig the issue even deeper. So where You manipulate price to get better deal after negotiations the gaming community tries to lower it even more, acting against its own interest.
  4. Difference between gun abuse and what gaming industry does is that the latter has a little bit smaller victim count. You keep missing one thing - I don't speak against involvement. I speak against too much of it. I will be more than happy to see forcing gaming industry to aknowledge that gambling law applies to loot boxes in any form as well. I speak against tempting government to go further than that and currently some gaming channels as well as gamers themselves do praise any kind of attack towards loot boxes VERY blindly. We should not applaud. We should thank for solving this.specific.problem (if it gets solved, that is) and then politely guide them towards the exit. If no collateral damage is necesarry for solving the issue then such damage should be avoided.
  5. I am a simple man. I see Insomnium and I approve like crazy. 

  6. Gambling regulations will likely be applied. And that I support. I just don't support banning loot boxes. It is gaming industry, they'll just keep looking for another way to milk players. I never said anything agaisnt such regulations. (tbh I feel like soon there will be a new way to milk us via monthly subscriptions. I don't even want to think about every way to scam us on these) It is correct, gaming industry messed up big time and now they'll face consequences. The problem is I may suffer them too. If governments gets too involved then they may also attempt censorship, dictate what motives, stories etc are "proper" and limit artistic freedom in the name of agenda they pursue. I don't want to get shot by a ricochet. I want industry to suffer consequences and industry alone. And I want them to answer for attempts to push through simulated gambling as something that is acceptable for kids. It is also correct that PEGI failed miserably. And nothing new neither, they were always pretty corrupt and served as a shield to protect industry from regulations. I don't think anyone here supports idea of children playing Manhunt. Or any violent video games. Same for games with sexual themes, drugs or simulated gambling. The thread was never even about that (Except for gambling part of course).
  7. I remember times, when I saw people being 27 years old here and thought "omg, so old!".

    Now I am that guy. And feel as young as ever. How ridiculous I was xD

      @Bas Being bald is no biggie, for me at least. Easier to cosplay One Punch Man XD

      I remember we are having a few other polish people here. @Rikifive I believe.

      I actually watched Schindler's List a few days ago.

  8. Trust me, as soon as all the games like FIFA will be hit with +18 and simulated gambling warning labels the idea of loot boxes will not be so tempting anymore. Currently industry thrives on the fact that it can put simulated gambling in games and still sell these as products suitable for children. Take away that power and not only less people will buy loot boxes. Less people will buy the game itself. I am all for government forcing proper labels on games, but I would be careful with giving it power to ban. Right now loot boxes are so popular, because they are not regulated. Force gambling regulations on them and they will already become way less attractive as a way to milk players further after getting them to buy games. If government is allowed to dig its claws into the industry too deeply it will not stop on loot boxes. Times, when people blame game violence for troubles in the real world are not over and we better not forget that. Even Trump has proven it with his speeches just recently.
  9. The DLCs were pretty bad already. While they did not promote gambling in any way average DLC offered half or less of content of typical "old school" expansion pack for the same or even higher price. Also DLCs were made of content that was already finished before game's release while before them expansion packs were *really* expansions that were developed after release of the game. To make it short - DLCs were just a way to milk players of their money. You want a complete game? Pay up. (and mind You by "complete game" here I mean game with all the content that was availible on the release day). And in most extreme cases DLCs were literally on a CD with a game. DLCs seem good now only, because we are facing something way worse. Right now they seem like a vacation compared to the mess we have, but take a trip to the past. People hated DLCs and for many good reasons. Then people hated in game shops and microtransactions, where You can buy specific items. Now people hate loot boxes. But they always just complained online and allowed game publishers to grind our wallets til there's not a drop left. To me it is sad that we needed governments to react as when politicians kick in they do way more than just deal with loot boxes. There will likely be talks of other issues, like "in game violence" etc. All, because some companies can't help their greediness.
  10. It's mindblowing to me that they actually released this trailer and expected people not to get angry. It's like all these triple A publishers are so detached from reality today that they fail to understand the most basic problems of modern gaming. They just assume they will slap some happy faces in trailer and casino and then thumbs up will come raining from the sky. And doing so right in the middle of investigation regarding gambling in video games? There are no words, normally I keep looking for a deeply hidden reason behind such... unusual actions. Here... there is no way around it. Someone went full stupid. Honestly, I find what was happening lately with video games in general so sad. The market was slowly rotting for a long time. DLCs alone were a dreadful thing and it is BAD that they are now seen as good. They were always utilized by greedy companies as shameless cashgrabs, offering content directly cut from the game or overpriced nonsense. People seem to forget how expensive a single, stupid skin was in some video games. At this pace if nobody will stop the industry we will MISS all this gambling in 4-5 years, because they will come up with even more disgusting ways to milk players by then. And the worst thing? This game will likely sell. It is deceptive towards one of its main targets thanks to incredibly corrupt PEGI rating that assumes this is children stuff. Some people will not give a damn as to them it is "player's choice". Internet is very vocal about those problems, but sadly until we have a full blown drama and headlines not much will change. For now we only have handful of articles on BBC etc and sadly that may not be enough. I have high hopes for the brutal statement released by UK regarding loot boxes. Hopefully that will finally push greediness of certain people back and at least force them to sell such games as +18 with additional indication of in-game gambling mechanics. Also I hope next time people will not wait for pay2win model going on before opposing such a thing. What Blizzard has done in Overwatch was already bad and that was exactly when a backlash should have arrived.
  11. So many, once friends gone from forum, it is kind of sad. So many memories have come to past D:
