(Originally shared this on L1, thought I’d share it here)

Recently, I’ve discovered this YouTube channel which provides good depth of understanding about all the issues in question.

Why games cost 60$

From a different channel, but still helps us understand expenses.

If you’re still with me, I hope that after watching all these video’s you understand a bit more about what afflictions affect games today.

I found that last one also interesting, because “due to inflation average game should cost between 80$-100$. And when we look at DLC or Season passes they usually bump the total cost of the game around this price”, (May not be direct quote; I’m paraphrasing).

After watching these videos, have any of your views changed? What do you think they got right or wrong; why?
