Maybe you should actually look into what you talk about or experience it before you slam things..

There is something called time management which the OP doesn't understand. And for OP if you think a girlfriend is cheaper then you are one lucky guy not to have to deal shopping bills

Sad to see that you have a chance to procreate and give to the world more people as closed minded as you.

Games like Zelda, Uncharted, Battlefield, Overwatch takes lots of time and lots of money to be published and developed, that is why they can put it on that price. Dont compare console/PC games with mobiles, because they are complete different. Im guessing you dont have any creative background thus making you think that "games should be cheap" and just pirate away and give the excuses that "i dont have 50$". Just stick to mobile gaming then, stay away from PC/Console games, since "freemium" is you thing.

Nintendo's motto: Least powerful, most popular. That's true only for one console out of two (64, GCN, Wii, Wii U, NX)

Or would you like to work hard on something, and end up not being paid because people pirated your games instead?
I agree that games should be reasonably priced, but we must also remember that there is a cost to making good games.
Anonymous, 07 Mar 2017I don't want to buy a console because of a game...So you would enjoy a super powerful console, if it had not a single game that you like?
Instead of a game that gave you so much fun playing, regardless on what console or PC it was on?

Calling pc and console games expensive is funny when people spend more than what a PS4 Pro costs on these chance based games that have no guarantee of giving top tier or decent units/items.
And do you have proof that millionaires don't spend on games? Ever heard of those people called Whales?
Anonymous, 07 Mar 2017Because only a few PSP and Vita owners bought games. The rest pirated their stuffs.If games cost so much it's clearly why people don't buy them...if the games were 1-2$ people would have bought them(90% of people wouldn't have pirated them if they were so cheap)and the developers would have won even more money,win-win situation...because the people which bought PSP or PS Vita didn't have 200$ for the games, in fact most didn't have much money in general...I think that any games which costs more than 5$ is a robbery(and all of them are)...they(console manufacturer, game developers, stores) all want money, but they don't think that we aren't all millionaires...and btw millionaires don't buy video games, they have better things to do with all these money...so the gaming industry is wicked

What I write here is based on research globally, not media reports.
If you know anyone who started with Atari 2600 and is here with current generations after 18 console and titles exclusive to each, played and discovered what were behind each, key selling point and when they start to fall, did physical surveys about each console and what people's Idea about each title in each console,
Then, You are right. I'm too young.
If not, I know what am I talking about.
