Video games are they worth the price?

Post  Andrew on Sun Jun 05, 2011 11:51 am

So after skimming the interwebz, i came across this blog comparing video game prices and the hourly play time vs other hobbies/activities.

Example-

Call of Duty Modern warfare 2-
i payed $70 for the prestige edition.
I have played 447 hours. Giving this a hourly value of 16 cents.
However, this is a situation where the object can be used more than one time.

Now, lets see here ah, lets say i go to a Motley Crue concert.
Cost - $55
Time- 3 hrs
hourly value- $18

but this is just a one time ordeal.

so tell me are video games worth their price or not!

Okay well it really depends on how much you will play the game if you buy it then don't like the game what was the point in buying it at all because your trade in value isn't going to be close to what you paid for it especially if its a sports game that's when you need something like gamefly or something like it so you can test the games before you buy then you will definitely know if you are getting your moneys worth. But regardless some games are still way over priced and you would have to be a real game addict to pay for some of the prices which some of you are lol but its what ever your preference is me if i didn't think i would play the game to its value i wouldn't pay a crap tone of money for it i would wait till it went on sale. BUT THAT'S JUST ME Question

concerts and such its if it makes u happy go ahead and take the life experience games on the other hand yeah if its something u can play over and over then its worth it if it something that might only barely spark an interest dont buy it bc u will not get your monies worth
