wondering how prices are seen by the average buyer

me personally:
$0-5: Why not?
$10-15: If it's worth my time
$20-30: Would need to be highly reccomended by someone i trust
$40-60: This tag is a warning label, most I see wearing it are AAAslop or overpriced indieshit. I have only shelled out this much for Switch exclusives because my PC cant emulate them
$70+: Never, and I blame image related for paving the way for this

        "price" is simply a return on investment, it's relation to "quality" is utterly negligible
        I pay $0 for my games unless they're very good, then I buy them on sale

    These homosexuals are still at it? I stopped watching when they started putting trigger warnings in their videos. Anyway:

    $0 = mtx gatchashit, avoid at all costs
    $5 = short indie or 10+ year old AAA
    $10 = medium sized indie or mediocre 2+ year old AAA
    $20 = overscoped indie garbage or top-tier 2+ year old AAA
    $30 = early-access indie garbage, do not touch
    $40-60 = "early-access" AAA garbage, absolutely do not touch
    $70+ = AAAA soulless corporate israeliteery, never ever buy

    40-60 used to be for AA-AAA games that were both complete and relatively new, but those simply don't exist in the current industry, so anything over $20 is an instant pass.

          These horrendous toads should be fricking FAR removed from anything educational.
          The world should have shunned them the minute they posted a video stating that savage rapist cannabilistic orcs in fantasy games were black people (And That This Was A Bad Thing).
          Idk how leftoids watch videos that do that kind of thing and roll with it instead of calling Extra Credits out for being horribly racist.

        They were the WORST when talking about games and the industry, like go back and watch some of their videos on it. They also would routinely make a video about how there a "new big thing in the works" but never specify what it is to make clicks.

    Thirty and below is my typical range of consideration. Anything above that needs to cater very specifically to my tastes, and even then, I'll wait for a sale. Any game that costs 70USD is not something I'll play, even if it goes on sale.

    $70 is inexcusable. With everything being digital now that alone drastically cuts down on manufacturing and shipping costs. Fact is gamers are fricking moronic and love to defend companies raping their butthole to the grave.

    0-5: if it looks very good, something like terraria, otherwise it's likely garbage
    10-15: if it looks incredible or is part of a series I have played previous games of and enjoyed all of, mainly this category is for 50-60 dollars games that are on sale for 75% off
    20-30: dangerously expensive, if I can get at least 500 hours out of it I will buy but usually I can't and I feel scammed
    30+: wait 3 years for aforementioned 75% off sale, if it doesn't happen, pirate

      you don't have to manufacture millions of CDs and ship them all over the world now + you have outsourced your production to India so making games is actually a lot cheaper than it was, compensating a pure price increase to the point that games should be cheaper than 60

      This argument is moronic because back then vidya was exclusively relatively high tech physical property. You bought paid for a cart. Now they ask $80 for a license to download the game from their server. Their costs are lower in every way except for their development budgets, which they themselves chose to balloon. Asking the consumer to subsidize bad choices is stupid. If your games aren’t profitable at that price point, use less resources.

    free - Why not? If I have the time.
    under $5 - If it looks interesting and if it's on sale (I am a moron)
    $6-$20 - If I am really looking forward to playing it and it's on sale
    above $20 - If I am really interested in it, I wishlist it so I can see when it's on sale

    To be honest, you need to justify why you game costs money in the first place. There are games that are given out for free that have more effort than most AAA devs, so the bar is pretty high.

    10 and under. I don't even consider it. If it'll entertain me for a few hours I'll buy it.
    10 to 20. This is where I start doing research into the game reading reviews asking friends etc. The barrier for me to buy it is still low because it's still very cheap.
    20 to 30. This is where I start to consider waiting for sales. Really depends if I want to play it asap due to friends playing, multiplayer activity or just general personal interest.
    30 and up. Wait for sale unless it's a developer I really trust or if I know it won't go on sale any time soon.
    Basically if I can earn a games cost within an hour of work I don't care too much about prices. Gaming is really cheap compared to other activities like going to the cinema or eating out anyways.
    The only things I really still pirate are Nintendo games because they never put their shit on sale.

    I wait for winter sale. If it's a AAA game I really, really want I will buy one or two of them around the 30 bux mark. After that I filter by price and buy a bunch at around 15. I have so many I'll never run out. I'll also buy a more expensive (like 60-70) game once a year, maybe.

      Also, it's hard to guage. I laid like 20 bux for Stray, which I liked, but was very short and I'll never play again. I paid like 5 bux for The Long Drive, which I already have like 40 hours in. I like them equally, so it's not simply a Time Value consideration.
