Paying real money for graphic extras in games. Just graphics no game perks. Lunacy according to the parents. Life necessity according to the child. Discussions ran long and spirited. In the end we relented, because what first seemed like only graphics came with the possibility to earn game money to keep unlocking stuff without having to put up more real world money. The result was a very happy child chuckling happily as he played, saying how grateful he is. However unnecessary it seemed to me it seems to have made the game experience much more rewarding for the player.
