When you consider that some NES and SNES games sold for $80
Trying to think what games I bought back in the day for absurd prices... I know I got Sword of Vermillion for the Genesis for $70 and Ultima VII for $70. SNK released their games for the "hundreds of dollars" on the Neo Geo.

The reality is that the game industry in monumentally larger today, so even at lower prices there's much larger profits to be made.

For some. Games are also monumentally more expensive to make. Here are the credits for the original Doom. 14 people, I think. Here it is for Doom 2016. Hundreds. Hundreds!
Anecdotally, I'm pretty certain games also go on sale and have price drops more frequently now, too, but I have zero data for that.

I'm not saying that we need lootcrates, or that we should be paying $90. But we're definitely enjoying games being cheaper than ever, and it's bound to be corrected at some point. Loot crates were an awful way to do that. Beyond awful. Companies are afraid to increase prices, though. $70 is bound to happen at some point. Hell, the next Elder Scrolls can probably pull it off (or it will just get ported to every single console for two generations, getting people to buy it multiple times at full price, haha.)
