Intimates: The Cost Vs Value Conversation

Posted on December 15, 2018

Listen to the show!

Checkpoint Intimates is a weekly podcast where two members of the team go one-on-one on a topic that they both feel strongly about, talking in a more deeper and, yes, intimate context. This week, Luke and Edie get passionate about the reality of cost vs value in the world of gaming. How does the price of a game effect our enjoyment? Are we automatically expecting more from a game that costs more? Is the price difference between indie games and AAA games warranted? Luke questions why an indie game like Ashen is priced so high, and does the Xbox Game Pass play a part in that decision? Edie wonders if irregardless of price it’s our responsibility to support indie developers instead of demanding their creations be priced beneath the true value of a game.
