Jamie Madigan has a guest post on his Psychology of Games blog, written by the Devil: Using Psychology and Loot Boxes too Destroy Video Games: A Fun and Practical Guide.
As Jamie (or the Devil says), “if your aim is to bring down the jackboot of government regulation on loot mechanics and destroy what was once a source of joy to millions of gamers, you’re doing a bangup job.”
I recommend you read it. It points out the psychological principles behind lootboxes. It should also make you think about what is going to happen when government regulation happens to the gaming industry. Which I now think is inevitable.
