    @ParkerCopeland8 @TheBrodRoad @gameinformer It was a joke. Some games may have an issue. Games like overwatch, SOW, battlefield, and COD, you’re earning weapons and loot that’s useless

    @Morltha @JimSterling Base GTA works fine, balanced, no issues there. GTAO Mts not an issue to me. Overwatch MTs are benign non-p2w low quality bad.

    PlatinumPengwin (@PlatinumPengwin) reported

    @DanStapleton I agree, but if i point to a few that are important to me and they have issues, its bad. That said, titanfall 2 used dlc and cosmetic microtransactions in the best way possible. If every game was like that, id be good with it. Even overwatch had lootboxes, but cosmetic only.
