YEAH! Dying light did the whole "first person parkour" thing way better
Except it didn't.
How so? Turning was better, combat was better, and it was clearer which objects were climbable and which werent. And also they got rid of that dumbass lens flare
Really? Because I felt everything was way too rigid. I couldn't actually move fluidly.

I do, and still don't consider it worth the money, but I still like getting them as a gameplay reward, and I'm glad others like them since it means the game remains consistently updated with no payments for me

The waffles said so.
lootboxes with cosmetic stuff only allows people who want to support the devs to spend more money and actually getting something from it
it's a morally justifiable way to give the customer a choice how much he wants to spend on your product
But how about just allowing you to buy the accessories directly instead? This "buy a chance to get some virtual stuff" is bullshit.
I don't know about AAA games but all the other games I played that had loot boxes (which were only valve games) had the option to buy cosmetic items directly
Lootboxes mainly exist there for the small chance of getting an unusual/legendary item which at least in TF2 aren't sold by valve themselves
I mean, they do give you the option to do that. One of the rewards from loot boxes in Overwatch are coins, and you can sell any duplicate rewards for coins. Each cosmetic item has a coin price tag that you can outright purchase when you have enough. Alternatively, I'm pretty sure you can spend a couple of bucks and buy coins themselves if you have a few skins in particular you want.
This way people can get cosmetics without having to spend money if they don't want to.
Except accessories and cosmetics are part of the game and for a huge amount of gamers are part of the enjoyment of the game.
you still get a lootbox every time you level up, I've never spent anything on lootboxes in overwatch because i dont feel the need to. Theres also three weekly boxes you can get from winning matches.
But they aren't necessary. You still get the full game for the money you pay. In star wars characters that you can play with are locked behind pay walls or bigger grinds than most would put into the game
It still fucking matters. It's the same predatory "get rich faster" scheme that ACTIVISION Blizzard is pulling. But hey, go ahead and be so blinded by blizzard fanboyism that you'll excuse and forgive them for every transgression they pull, like popularizing lootboxxes in AAA games in the first place.
I'm definitely not a blizzard fanboy, I've never played overwatch and I honestly can't remember the last blizzard game I did play I can just tell the difference between cosmetics and necessities
If you really want someone to blame, its valve for their whole "lootbox" based economy, but their system works well enough and it's just for cosmetics.
The difference is that Valve's game is free to download and play, and Overwatch, Battlefront 2, Shadow of War and the new Need for Speed (that also wanted to do this, thanks EA) are premium AAA $60 games. Dota 2 and Team Fortress 2 can be played for absolutely 0 dollars and the boxes are the ONLY source of revenue for those games.
And no, you can very literally, directly, and observably blame ACTIVISION Blizzard directly for instigating and popularizing the lootboxes, as the number of premium games with the system DRASTICALLY shot up into the skies after the release and success of Overwatch, compared to EVERY. SINGLE. YEAR. PRIOR.
Oh I must have missed the part where I got csgo for free
Will admit oversight on my part that I forgot even existed. Do not condone the use of lootboxes in that game either, just like I don't with OW.
CoD has been releasing games with loot boxes to get special variants of guns for a few years now, they beat OW to the punch
