    We have no evidence that it is an incentive. If Gantz cared overmuch about people leaving, the best way to avoid it would be to not offer the choice to leaveŚwe're going to need some new evidence to back up any argument that the menu is anything more than Gantz messing with people (if perhaps less harmfully than most of his ways).

    imagine a 200 point menu it would include some better incentives
    Based on Gantz's previous way of operating, my guess is that you'd get the 100-point menu and get your hundred points subtracted, and then after the next mission (if you survived and didn't go free) you'd have over a hundred points and would get another choice. I don't really see Gantz giving better options or more than one consecutive choice.

    If Gantz didn't offer a choice to leave then nobody would play the game, except izumi, and some other die hards.

    It certainly is an incentive to avoid learned helplessness, but "not dying" will be an incentive in and of itself for much longer than the expected lifespan of the contestants.

    Gantz gave it to him, how else? Chances are Kurono has one too, somewhere in his room.

    In a way it is like a game. Think of it this way. Let's use counter strike as an example. The more you kill and win in counter strike the more money you get to buy better cooler items.

    The same way in Gantz, the more enemies they kill the more points get accumulated. So, I really don't see any reason to not be able to buy more powerful weapons like the Gantz bike for more points. Gantz bike.... drool.

    The major thing you're forgetting in that comparison is as follows: Counterstrike is a game designed to be fun for its players. Gantz's game is a game designed to be fun for Gantz.

    izumi seems to enjoy it enough to slaughter a whole group of ppl including himself just for a chance to get in.
