    Why don't people just play games like Bastion, Capsized, The Swapper, Pyre, Hob, etc. if they don't want loot boxes? Or against bots in some AAA games.

    Loot boxes are a undeniable form of gambling and should be treated as such, no more, no less.

    Depends on the game.. Take a look at Ghost Recon Wildlands.. Some overpowered guns and vehicles in those loot crates :O

    Ubisoft creates story creator
    Users create stories to alleviate the game's XP grind
    Ubisoft responds by changing their TOS to sanction creators and players who do this

    Hmm... I wonder why?

    This is a purely single player game, by the way.
