Figurines pvc eventually bleed and fall apart, movie discs data decay, cars rust, but if you get enjoyment from it then it doesn't really matter. It's more than a digital card, it's raising them, maxing them, fighting encounters, just like digital sprites in a random JRPG you buy for $60 just to complete and throw on a shelf.
Of course your point of view is totaly valid and i can only agree with you. I explained it wrong.
When you buy beer, car or figurine, you get what you pay for. I have never been against pay to win or pay for digital stuff games. My understanding on this is exactly like yours.
But the type of games like fate doesn't sell you saber. It sell you the hope of getting her. Even more pushy, they advertise events and packages as your way to get her. Spend x amount of money to get x chance of getting your favorite carracter. You will make your dreams come true.
What they don't tell you are the chances of getting it.
They play on your deceptions and hopes to get you to spend even more. Its a trap and a terrible one at that.
Those types of games are the perfect psycological levers to create the basic gambling addiction.
You don't get what you pay for. You are willingly getting scamed. And who likes to spend his money and enjoy it for a scam?
I hope i was 'clearer' this time. Far from my intention to tell you what you spend your money on for enjoyement. I am a 100% on the same line as you on this. Sadly, Fate and all of those types of 'games' are gambling pits passing for games. Nasty difference.
