no valve games like csgo and tf2 have lootboxes ..counter strike/csgo just calls them weapon crates but same thing.

valve have made a shit load from it, aside from all the indie and published games that go through there shitty platform (shitty considering how much money they make from it and just how little they do it improve it)
