My epiphany about mobile game started last year when Konami vs Kojima was a hot topic.

Tl:dr Konami wanted Kojima out, not in a good way.

One of the reason of Konami action was because they wanted to focus on Mobile and gambling game. At the time I was not aware the mobile game economy until I started playing Final Fantasy Brave Exvius a gatcha-mobile game which literally is mobile and gambling game in a way. It is not necessary to spend money to play but if you want the good stuff and be top of the pack money is everything. If you're not willing to spend and still want to be on top of the pack better bring out your lucky charm, horse shoe and rabbit foot because you a huge amount of luck on your side.

Even knowing this my ignorance or innocent which ever you prefer to call still believe that people couldn't possibly spend thousands on intangible stuff that will be always be replace by a new better intangible stuff. Well that was until I see this guy video,

He spend more than USD 8000 on this game and this game is only about 6 months old.

He is one of many in the game, there are many other semi casual player who spend not that much but still a considerable amount.
