Hopefully this has a domino effect. Surely games wont have them anymore if they are banned across Europe.

Only game I played with loot boxes is Overwatch. That one doesn't seem bad.

Battlefield is fine as well.

They are, but so are collectible card packs. Overwatch doesn't do it "better" lol, it's just because it's cosmetics so people aren't bothered by it as much. It's still gambling.

great news as the gaming world(like most things) have proven themselves to side with obvious exploitation and stretching the limits with what was supposed to be a fun, non-intrusive reward method.

also, this will most likely become extend to the rest of the world if they're passing it through EU since that's also how steam refunds snowballed into fruition.

Welp, the gambling commission in the United States needed an excuse to look into loot boxes. Will be interesting.
