Players will spend money on Loot Boxes, and don’t know what they’ll get. It’s just like online gambling. Random is the secret and interests, everyone wants to obtain a rare item, but most of time they are disappointed.
One Reddit user comments, ” I feel like railing against Loot Boxes is great, if you have never, or something close to that value, purchased them. If you purchase them and complain…well…” How interesting the comment is! and of course he is right, Loot Boxes is so comment in gaming world the biggest reason I think is that players always buy them in the first place.
