I’m getting really fed up of games that have lootboxes. At first it was a bit of fun – pay a little bit of money, get something silly – but some games (*cough* Overwatch *cough*) are bringing out too many to keep up with, and now Shadow Of War is getting lootboxes too.

We don’t mind if the boxes contain cosmetic items, but no-one should have to pay again to keep playing a game they’ve already bought.
