By the same line of reasoning that equates price differences to perceived value differences, one could ask what makes Skyrim ($60) or Dark Souls ($40) "so much better" than all of those by a factor of 2 to 4 times. The point is that this line of reasoning is incomplete because price is also related to cost. The fact is that point and click adventures cost less to produce than complex RPGs, and game development enjoys economies of scale.
