I don't think that's what "freedom of speech" means. Just call it a hunch.

violence in video games is bad, it makes everyone into killers.

Sex in video games is bad, it makes everyone into rapists.

lootboxes in video games is bad, it makes everyone into gambling addicts.

notice a trend?


Except you're spending real money when buying loot boxes, just like real life gambling.

True, but it's usually possible to get said loot box without paying. And in the case of CoD, you don't even need that much grinding to get a free one, and most people get a free one daily.

but unlike real life gambling I'm getting something in return. whereas in real life gambling I can just lose my money and get nothing in return.

I don't like lootboxes anymore then the next guy but trying to claim it's gambling is a strech. You wanna see gambling go live in Vegas where you have slot machines and video poker machines at a gas station. You'll quickly see the difference.

Edit: lootboxes are closer to the stupid little quarter machines then gambling. where you put in a quarter and get a stupid "sticky" slaphand that is yellow when you wanted the green one.
