Pachter: Loot Boxes Exist Because Consumers Are Stupid; Hawaii Legislators Are Morons

From May 26, 2018 (excerpt) 

… Michael Pachter, perhaps the most outspoken and well-known analyst in the games industry … didn’t spare any words against the Hawaii legislators led by Chris Lee, who spoke against loot boxes and tried to pass a few bills (which all failed so far).

“In the U.S., there’s very low probability anybody passes legislation to regulate loot boxes. The guys in Hawaii are just fucking morons. They’re morons. They should not only resign, but they should kill themselves. They’re so idiotic. Seriously. They’re such morons. One of the two idiot legislators said—I forget the studio. But they said something like, ‘EA shut down my favorite studio in 2005 and I’ve hated them ever since.’ He said that on the record. We’re going to legislate against loot boxes? What an asshole.

“By the way, their solution was, loot boxes are gambling. Gambling is illegal under Hawaii law. Therefore you can’t buy a loot box until you’re 21. Does that mean you can gamble when you’re 21 in Hawaii as well? There’s no chance that law is upheld. They’re not going to get it passed, because somebody in that legislature actually went to law school. Somebody in their staff is going to look at that Hawaii law. They’re idiots. I don’t think any of that stuff happens.”….
