As long as there's no microtransactions involved to buy more, then sure.

I've never found lootboxes fun. Gamble at a chance to obtain what you want instead of earning it in game. Same thing applies to DLC cosmetics. I mean, who doesn't love getting handed a new costume by paying real money /s.

I hate gambling in general and i hate rng rewards. So combining those things nearly kills games for me.

I don't have any issue whatsoever with "loot boxes" provided that:
#1 They do not provide any sort of material advantage unavailable to people who do not use loot boxes.
#2 Any "exclusive" items that they may contain that do not appear through the course of other game mechanics are cosmetic in nature only.

And most importantly:
#3 These "loot boxes" cost $0 to acquire and $0 to open.

Providing that all three criteria are met then "loot boxes" are just a fun mechanic to help spice things up and potentially give players a bit of variety in their gameplay without having an overall negative impact on gameplay or player perception of the game.

The moment "loot boxes" start slipping in game-changing rewards that cannot be equaled or surmounted through normal gameplay or gameplay items that cannot be acquired anywhere else then "loot boxes" is the moment they start sliding into the bad idea category.

When they start costing RL$ they've clearly gone into the "Really Bad Idea" territory and the employees who thought up the idea and pushed to have it implemented should be fired.

I don't have problems with companies making money, but doing it in an unethical fashion, regardless of how legal it is, should be frowned upon, strongly.

Cosmetic lootboxes are fine, especially if the game's under active development. Gotta pay the devs somehow.

Power lootboxes are never okay.
