Gold farming and power leveling can affect a game's economy by causing inflation.

Yes they should be made illegal

I don't see a need to make gold farming for games illegal. In some nations, people make a living from this. Those who do not want to partake in this practice certainly don't have to. From my viewpoint, the practice doesn't really hurt others, and may in a few cases help individuals find gainful employment.

There is no need for gold farming to become illegal.

It is in control of the player

While it is a very odd practice, and one many people cannot imagine wanting to engage in, gold farming requires a high level of ingenuity and work ethic. There is no reason to make gold farming illegal, because there is no harm to others from the practice.

While I'm not convinced that gold farming is good or bad, there is a very persuasive argument that it's driving economic development in China, and that anything that perpetuates economic stimulus is a good thing.

In the 1990s and 2000s, gold farming was the practice of playing a massively multiplayer online game (MMO) to acquire in-game currency later selling it for real-world money.[1][2] People in several developing nations have held full-time employment as gold farmers.[3]
