Microtransactions in paid games

The game industry is currently at its most lucrative. Unfortunately, that’s due to increased monetization. It’s bad enough that some publishers have lumped microtransactions into their games despite already having price tags. It’s worse when they include built-in predatory systems hidden in plain sight. Electronic Arts, for example, had come under legal fire for utilizing schemes in some of its online multiplayer-driven games ranging from pay-to-win mechanics to pushing gambling.
