@somejerk: There is also value in being able to afford rent and food by waiting for a game is on sale so you can actually afford it. I used to have allot of disposable income, and then I moved out of my parents house and quickly realized that being frugal helps you pay the bills.
Do I think a game like Bioshock Infinite is worth 50 bucks? Yes I do but I can sure as hell tell you that I cant afford to spend 50 bucks every time a big game is released. I cant even afford to to purchase 1 indie game a week without hurting my food budget, so I set aside a small amount of money every week and wait for a sale to get the things I want because I dont need video games to live but I do need food, shelter and the ability to pay off my student loans lets I be in debt forever.
