The economy hasn't affected my gameplay...just super busy players...
ARGH! Stay away from my games, Real Life!

Players, nothing; the gaming line I buy is running out of new stuff to put into print...

That, and, well, school...stupid comps...moving...

Think of it this way: If the game is any good, you can easily spend over 100 hours playing it. (Of course, if you're a more casual player, we'll just say 40 hours, and you would also most likely buy the $20 games.)

Considering most games max out at $50, that's 50¢ per hour of gaming. (Casual players, same rate, with a few variables.)

Now, go and compare that price to other hobbies. You'll see the difference.
