NFT games are set in the investment. who now think after they making shitloads of money. NOW want to jump the line and force themselves into gaming,
if this happens we wont be playing games much at all as all we will be trying to make money which is not fun at all. Money sucks out life of a persons character and changes things by breeding total douchebags turning them into complete assholes. Money its just a need its not you or who are.

As a PC game player Since time beginning we need games to be just games.

QotW: I don't like that there will be loot boxes in lost ark but after so many years of hating gambling in videogames aka loot boxes and even after some legislation and devs opting to not publish the game there instead of taking out loot boxes and letting us just buy items we want i know that loot boxes are here to stay...
P.S sorry for the long comment
