Video games should be worth at least $100.

Console games were already $50-70 like 30 years ago. We were already paying $50-60 for PC games over 20 years ago. Meanwhile, development costs have skyrocketed. And you wonder why companies are cramming so much DLC and microtransactions nowadays.

If video games were $100 or even $150, I guarantee we wouldn't see all this microtransaction fuckery.

      Game companies refuse to make a single game worth $100. They've squandered the opportunities afforded by a consumer-base that has expanded and in order to keep margins up after alienating their main audiences, they resort to over-priced after-sales products of very poor value to undiscerning customers.

      If the change happened now then definitely, but I get OP's point, the insistence in not increasing game's price while also demanding them to get use new console's full power was likely a factor in the creation of DLC and microtransactions.

    You have no fucking clue how supply and demand economics works.
    A game can have limitless supply, it's a digital good, unlike produce goods or clothing only the original development time carries costs.
    Video games will be sold at the amount which it maximises demand.
    Video games have not gone up in price because the amount of customers has risen, while the willingness to pay above $60 for a game has not. Video game companies make more money than ever. If the price of video games increase, it's a sign that the target audience is simply willing to pay more, it says nothing about the actual quality of the product

    Reminder that video games are the cheapest consumer hobby with mass appeal. It is leagues more difficult to purchase blu-ray movies or collect LEGO sets than it is to amass a decent catalog of games. Just trying to buy every volume of one specific manga (tankobon or indvidual) can break the bank, meanwhile AAA games and indie games can be bought for literal pennies if you aren't retarded.

    If videogames adjusted for inflation then the industry would improve overnight. It's already done so for 3rd-world nations hence why they pirate so often, but $70 is unironically way too cheap to be paying especially given that indies just... aren't allowed to sell for that high, on principle? It's kind of weird if you ask me.

    Also people are literally fine with the government taking 1000s of tax dollars FOR FUCKING NOTHING but the prospect of paying slightly more for entertainment suddenly turns them into vigilante anarchists. I guess power bills don't exist either?

        Taxation is theft, the government promotes robbing its own citizens and using that money to fund proxy wars and the liberation of parasitic minorities. The fact that people think they're based for downloading software when they get their income siphoned away because Uncle Sam said so is a crime against humanity.

    In the 80s, you paid $20 for a video game.
    In the 80s, you made $50k a year, for example.
    In 2022, you make $55k, but the consumer power of $55k in 2022, has a quarter of the consumer power of what $55k could buy you, in the 80s.
    You can raise that price up, if you want, but AAA games are failing more often than not. Unless you're a Rockstar game, a FromSoftware game, a Call of Duty game, or a sports game for one of the top three (Madden, FIFA, NBA), you're going to have to work to make up your budget. No other franchise is a sure seller anymore.
    So just raise the price, you're only going to sell less copies.

    They are. Every game that comes out has at least a $30 DLC. Even Resident Evil Village got one. Hell my first $100 game was Gears of War 3 in 2011. The $70 price increase is really from $100 to $110.

      Correct, but then again these meta-narratives about "game development" is driven by Triple A cutscene simulator crap.
      Much like other companies that deal in services and entertainment, large vidya companies are full of useless employees that need to be paid, and thus the price of vidya almost doubled in one generation (of people, not a gen of games)

    Look at the movie industry. They tried raising ticket prices because of "piracy". They tried raising prices because of production costs. They tried raising prices because of theaters shutting down. Every last change caused the general public to stay home and wait for DVD/Blu Ray releases. So what did they do, lowered the price of DVDs and Blu-Rays.

    The videogame industry is the only industry that ignores customers wants, and charge through the nose for their product. It's not self-sustaining and sales are constantly below expectations.

    All these assholes that said we should have $70 game tried lowering prices to $39 on Black Friday, guess what happened to them? They found out that $19.99 is still the sweet spot and raising prices causes boycotts.
