Games shouldn't even be close to what they are now which is why I don't game much anymore.
Movies that cost 200 hundred million to make are $20 and even if you throw in the theater price it's $30 but video games that cost maybe 5 million to make are $70?
BS. If you buy a DVD movie, after you watch it, it goes on your shelf and maybe you'll watch it again in a few years, and a lot of times, never again.
When you buy call of duty,how many times do you play it? online? it has massive replay value. its worth the price.
and theres also something called supply and demand. comparing video game prices to movie prices is absurd.

Exactly, and you don't hear the movie industry complaining about used dvd/bluray sales either, and disc versions are 20/30 dollars.
In the past they could make the argument that the market isn't as big for video games, so they have to charge more and restrict resale, but that's not true at all now
Price for games should be going down, but that's not how the market works anymore, it'll get to a point where something will snap.
if anything,game prices should be going up soon. games are getting more complex to make.
