I got Super Mario Odyssey, Destiny 2 on PC and Assassins Creed Origins through the E3 sale for about $39.99 each (69.99 for Mario). Sold Destiny 2 on PC since I have already put so much time into the PS4 version and am thinking about selling Assassins Creed as well. I don't have time for another huge game on top of Mario and regular League sessions with friends.
I buy digital valueless content (character skins, and sometimes even loot boxes) as a way to support the developer who made a game I enjoy.
In Overwatch I had played over 40 hours within a month of release, and had already gotten the game for a cheaper than normal price so I decided to buy some loot boxes to throw some money their way. I didn't care what was in those boxes, if I got something I wanted that was just a bonus because I already had enough currency just buy playing to get anything I wanted anyways.
And League of Legends. I have played over 1500 hours of that game. Every 100 hours or so I drop $25-50 to get a couple of character skins just to say "hey, thanks for continuing to support and grow the game I enjoy so much". Plus the skins look rad and add enjoyment to the game for me.
Destiny 2 is a great example of people overreacting about loot boxes.
Everyone FREAKED out over the loot boxes in Destiny 2 when it came out before they even knew how it worked. Turns out you get a free loot box every level up after 20 (I have gotten over 15 of them free) and they don't even give anything good. Maybe a new ship look or a gun skin or some shaders. I have never used a single item i have gotten from my 15 boxes.
