Rip off as we can do less with them
Agreed. This is why I have been gravitating towards the indie games scene on pc and moving away from console gaming. Eventually you can play all the AAA games as steam has sales on most games. Usually humble bundle has good deals that are too good to pass up. I miss the days when it was 20$ for a game. I don't understand it at all. Game prices have went up to three times the price they were(same with gas prices), but minimum wage hasn't even hit twice what it was lol.
I bought gta eflc for 4 quid
I agree that games are over priced these days and it's one of the reasons why I only buy 1 game for each of my consoles usually call of duty these days and just play it online. Other games I either play when friends bring them over or the rare rental at blockbuster. However it is understandable, to a point, why games have tripled in value. Today's games cost infinitely more to make compared to say the original Nintendo with some games having larger budgets than some Hollywood movies. Games have big name writers, directors, composers, celebrity voice overs, expensive cut scenes etc. I myself could easily do with out these expensive costs just higher a good writer.
games nowadays have huge budgets. For example, red dead redemption had a 100 million budget. $20 games in the past had what, one million max? If people are going to demand my complex games, the cost of gaming skyrockets.
Wish I could get games at that price, our dollar is stronger then the US and we still play $89 - $109 for xbox games.
"nothing going back to developers" I don't know about you guys but when I trade games in I'm trading in towards another game. and while the cash isn't out of my pocket they still get the money from say gamestop etc.
