Loot boxes, as well as microtransactions, have taken a lot of heat in recent new games. Even after you've paid $60 for a game, some of the largest games, such as Call of Duty, Destiny 2, Star Wars: Battlefront II, or Middle-earth: Shadow of War, sell in-game, randomized loot boxes. In reality, if you do not even spend additional money, it can be tough to advance in some games, especially on the internet.
