This game came out over 2 years ago and it still cost thirty dollars on Amazon. Why is that.

The same reason why you are searching for it on Amazon.

I don't like it either, mostly because the idiots who work there don't know anything about the games they're selling, but I thought I'd just tell him that buying pre-owned is an option for people who don't have some weird thing against buying used.

They'll keep it at the price that people are willing to buy it. When sales slow down and stop is when they'll lower the price, but if people are still buying it at the price, theres not much of a reason to lower the price.

The term is 'price gouging'. Basically they are giving their consumers the big middle finger cus no one bought the game.
