Gambling and Loot Crates per sports games: 
Posted on September 19, 2023 at 03:10 PM.
I'm sure that many might disagree with me, and if I'm lucky, I won't have to hear from any of them, haha, but I see a similarity in sports gambling and loot crate kind of transactions, per sports games overall.

Madden and NBA2k are the closest to this getting out of hand, so I will use them as my examples: To get my personal feelings out of the way, I'm getting annoyed with the increasing focus in real life and in video games, per sports, that fantasy points scoring and the gambling on that or just projecting wins (still based on the same crap). Entire sports shows, segments of what used to be just actual sports news shows, podcasts, etc. etc. are starting to be way too much. It already forces thoughts of arrogance into the actual players themselves, and that sucks because we don't want more divas. We also don't want more selfish kinds of influence from if they're regarded as role models. That aside, though, here's the main points - every format, process and how things are even geared towards adults per these areas and gambling, it's entirely the same way towards even children, only difference being that their money is spent on packs/crates/xp or so on. It's all based on chance, all found out only if purchased and so it's all gambling. If ever there's a reason to get this BS out of sports video gaming, this is the way.
