So to answer the question I asked, Nintendo in fact doesn't currently do lootboxes and MTX.  Thanks, that was my point.  

For the record I happily bash putting content behind Amibos.  I happily bash having to pay for online, same as I do for Sony and MS.  If Nintendo moves to lootboxes and MTX, I will bash them and STOP buying their products.

*I also do NOT support their online program with my money nor do I buy Amibos.  

So I am consistent, thus have zero idea what your point is.  

And circling back to the larger point.  Nintendo doesn't do lootboxes.  And Nintendo isn't alone.  There are PLENTY of options for non lootbox games.  Thousands in fact.  Gamers do NOT have to support lootboxes, they are electing to support lootboxes.

My point was that Nintendo isn't a haven. They are most likely late to the party as they were for updates, DLC, MP then paid MP, etc. And they do have games on smartphone that have lootboxes and MTX in case you don't know.

But sure I agree gamers elect to support the bad practices be it by not caring, fomo or whatever. Myself I don't buy dlc and other things, my plus is for the free games and discounts since I also don't play online.

Fair enough and I believe we are aligned.  I wasn't trying to paint Nintendo as perfect, but rather was saying there are plenty of MTX and lootbox free games.  I did mention Indie games as well.  I have zero issue (across Nintendo, Sony and MS) finding great games that lack MTX and lootboxes.  I don't play mobile games, but I thought it was 'free' but than charged money to unlock the full game.  Even those I don't think have MTX and lootboxes.  But I don't care, because I don't play them anyway.

And applaud your stance for not supporting poor practices.  If more gamers did as such, these practices would go away.
