i really hate the idea of rng in buying games.
i would much rather prefer packs of games together with a discount thrown on it, but rng spinning the wheel to maybe get a higher monetary value game is bad.
while this isn't ea or steam cancer, it is clearly not great.
buying games should stay free of rng/rolling the dice and while i get, that this can be fun for a lot of people, i much rather not have it on the one site, where i actually buy a game without supporting the darkness that is drm.
i can't find a simple way to look at the list of games they are currently throwing into the lootxbox/starbox and although i asume, it is not made clear, that every game has the same chance to be picked.
and there is the question of possibly just putting crap games in the star lootboxes instead of great great games.
i know taste is subjective but u get what i mean.
so overall not a fan, and how about a different idea, u can buy a gog calendar till christmas/new year and u get a new game every 5 days for the whole month and u know exactly what game it is gonna be and how much overall discount u gonna get, this way u got your game to play for 5 days and sth. to look forward too and make it a higher monetary value one on the 25th..
then comes the whole issue of young children using gog or grown ups with a gambling problem.
gog should be a save place from drm and rng and lootboxes of course, i wanna go here and get exactly what i want how i want it and this is not it.
also time to disable the gog newsletter, because instead of reminding me of good deals for great games, it now suggests to me to gamble for fuck knows what.
I can understand what you mean, we always want to save money and get the best deal. The fact that it could be total rubbish can be very offputting but also tempting to buy more. That is what I am concerned about.
Ok update, you will only get that are more expensive then the star. It is imposible to get a gift that is cheaper then the Star price.
