For every game like FGO or Granblue, there's many more flops like the recent Disgaea gacha that Nippon Ichi tried and failed at due to bad servers. They're now looking at bankruptcy for their lack of success. And SNK with the many mobile games they released before they were bought out, none of which having any massive success until the Metal Slug tower game some years ago. Mobile is a very competitive market, but one of the few where small developer/publishers can find success.
I would much rather the industry self-regulate, but it's already been shown how much they can be trusted with that. So now the next step is being considered, and it's simply something everyone will have to adjust for. Some thanks can be given to the ESRB for their negligence in comparing loot boxes to CCGs. Ignoring how much more accessible the former is, and how much more interactive video games are to paper products (casinos use bright, heavy colors for a reason).
