I think it's a very widespread consideration - but since I'm not particularly concerned with value for money (in a strict sense) - I have to add my little comment to point that out.

Personally, I don't really care what a game costs - as long as it's within reason and my personal economic reach. Beyond that, it's all about the level of entertainment I receive for the hours invested.

Essentially, I need my time spent to be "worth it" compared to what I could have spent my time on instead.

I have far too little time in life already, and for a game to be worthwhile - it has to do some pretty fantastic things for me to consider it fully worthwhile - regardless of the monetary investment made
