What the… Gatcha!?

Is it just me, or has this fad just grown wings and taken off? Is this ruining the shoppers experience? Is this a good way to frustrate shoppers? When did it become ‘reasonable’ to pay an unknown amount of Linden for an item? Or is it really the best thing since sliced bread?

To be honest, normally gachas don’t bother me. I only play a machine if I really, REALLY like an item and then I only try a few times and move on. I know people find them to be a lot of fun and it can be. A fantastic thing about a gacha machine is, creators need be so much more creative and deliver a really good quality product for customers to want to play their machine.

Another reason I like gatchas is that it’s the way I do my Christmas and birthday shopping for my SL family. I buy things during the year, I know they would like and when the time comes I can give them a prezzy to unwrap. It makes it so much more personal than sending them a giftcard and something from Marketplace.

The down side for me though, two years ago one of my favorite creators made a Christmas tree for a December gacha and to this day, I love that tree more than any other tree that I have seen in SL. Since then I have been playing the gacha (at the Arcade) and randomly when I go to the store and I have NEVER managed to win that tree!

Ultimately, I think it is up to the consumer to play them or not. I do think you need self control not to spend 30k Linden per machine and if you do, you have a bigger problem.

And after all of the above, I think I will forever be that girl with her face pressed against the window, longingly looking from the outside at my favorite Christmas tree.. I may never own.
