I'm curious as to how much people actually spend on games. Me personally I rarely ever buy games on day 1, I always get them new (never used) but I wait until they drop down in price a bit, unless it's something really great like Uncharted, COD, or Skyrim (though I will probably skip MW4). Most games are not worth $60, they either lack the content or quality to justify the purchase, which is why I'm waiting to get Max Payne 3.

What do you think? I will check back on this thread later.

Only 360, Wii U, and PC games are.

I don't think I've ever paid a full sixty dollars for a video game. I paid fifty bucks for Super Mario Galaxy 2 and Sleeping Dogs, but that's it.

I don't purchase many at that price anymore; honestly I think they could be cheaper but companies have to make them moneyz.

#9 Posted by Sword-Demon (6970 posts) -

with rare exceptions, games aren't worth $60. I think most are worth around $40ish

#10 Posted by ActicEdge (24470 posts) -
Absolutely hell no. I think beyond 40 bucks is too much and as such I won't pay more than that. Companies need to find a way to cut costs and reduce retail prices. I think the actual problem is things like retailer cut, marketing and distribution can't be made cheaper besides online purchases and DD so their hands are tied.

I think Xbox 360, Wii, Wii U, DS, 3DS, and PC games are all worth the full price. I don't think any game on the PS3, PSP, or PS Vita are worth full price though.
#12 Posted by 1080pOnly (1986 posts) -

Just one more reason to game on PC ... much, much cheaper games ;).

Especially next-gen when the consoles will find a way to kill used games.

#13 Posted by Chutebox (37218 posts) -

I would never pay $60 for a flop like All Stars, that's for sure.

I think games should cost us $40 instead of $60

#19 Posted by jer_1 (7451 posts) -

No, about 90% of all games are not worth $60. They generally are never worth full price. There are a few that are worth full price but most of those are even debatable.

Buy on PC and you'll rarely ever have to pay full price.

Yeah, the most I paid for a PC Game was Portal 2 for $50 but that was only because I bought it very close to when it came out.

#21 Posted by StrongDeadlift (5173 posts) -

No.

Especially not no replay value PS3 flops like All Stars, Twisted Metal, Starhawk, Killzone, Resistance, etc

I only buy PC, Wii U, and 360 games full price. For ps3 games I wait until they are $10.
#23 Posted by TwistedShade (3165 posts) -

FC3 was one of the only games I have payed full price for this year. And it was definitely worth it. But most games certainly aren't so I usually wait for 40$ or lower price points.

#24 Posted by LittleMac19 (1638 posts) -
No, should of atleast stayed at 50$. When the PS4 & 720 hit the price of games will go up to 70$, it's inevitable.....

They already get their games for free :P

#28 Posted by slimjimbadboy (1731 posts) -

Best game on the PS3 was Journy. PS3 games arn't worth $60.

#29 Posted by ArchoNils2 (6228 posts) -

Yes they are and whoever think they aren't should buy them on Steam winter sales :D

Nah, most comments have everything to do with TC.
#31 Posted by speedfreak48t5p (7789 posts) -

Depends on the individual and what they think justifies the price. Is a game with a massive amount of content worth more than a short game that can be replayed many times?

butthurt doesn't even starts to describe what those poor souls are feeling right now... Most of them were owned by the same crap they talked all year about the PS3 having no games. And let's not even talk about 2013 because the poor lems are on suicide watch. :(

I agree. I like Blu Ray game discs much better.

As for games worth their full price.........

I thought Far Cry 3 was worth the $49.99 I paid for.

#38 Posted by YoshiYogurt (5976 posts) -
No. Full price PC games are laughable, we have steam for that. 360 games are on crappy DVDs that scratch easier than a baby PS3 games, I'd say maybe, they are on blu ray. WiiU, while they are on Nintendo's own blu-ray format, i wish they stuck to $50 like last gen, felt good to always get games $10 less. 3DS and Vita games should have stayed $30. I had huge incentive to buy Game boy games when they were just $30. Easy to raise money for them as a kid. $40 3DS games make me want to vomit.
#39 Posted by 1PMrFister (3134 posts) -
Very few of them are. I bought a PS3 last year, but I have yet to spend $60 for a single retail game on it yet. The only full-priced game I've purchased on it is Journey, and even that was sorta questionable at $15.
#40 Posted by trugs26 (5480 posts) -

I'm assuming this is the highest US bracket. In NZ games can get to $130 and above at EB Games. Which I think is much too high. I've paid that price for one game, and I think even for the best games that's pushing it. I think games should be NZ$110 tops.

Most games are worth around $20 to me.

i dont know how video games go from costing 35 to 60 this is a rip off

#49 Posted by Bruce_Benzing (1742 posts) -

That's why game renting and used game sales are needed.
