The holidays are in full swing this week as we celebrated Thanksgiving with lots of food, games and Black Friday sales. We’ve had great deals on games that will have you giving all the money in your wallet to Steam, Walmart, and other retailers. Ironically, we’ve held key conversations on both gambling and what we’re thankful for this week. The People Speak on all of these matters and more.
On the reviews side, we’ve checked out three new ways to play some familiar games: Skyrim VR, Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney on 3DS, and Final Fantasy XV’s VR fishing expansion Monster of the Deep. In this week’s strangest news, The People Speak on how Activision is fighting a patent from the dog poop cleaning service Call of Doodee, which is pretty unfortunate for the cleverly named family-owned company.
With such a busy holiday week, you guys have had a lot to say about what’s going on in the video game realm. Here are some of our favorite comments from the GR community members this week for The People Speak:

Comment: “No, it shouldn’t. People that make that comparison fail to realize, or are perhaps dodging the fact that, actual gambling is build on a system that doesn’t have any obligation to return investment. Loot boxes will always give you something back, whether it’s common goods, currency, another loot box, or something grand. Anyone who has actually stepped into a casino, sat down at a card table, or even bought into a raffle knows they’re probably not getting anything back for their money. You will ALWAYS get something from a loot box.
