No. If I want a game I buy it. I'm not a 12 year old kid on an allowance that has to wait 6 years for a price drop so I can get it for Christmas.

Not really PC related, but I still see Mario Kart DS selling for $34.99 in retail stores

I get that it was popular...but that game is literally 8 years old

Nintendo takes forever to drop their price and then usually never drops it beyond a certain point.

I'd be pissed if I didn't know for certain that anything they put out is pure quality with very few exceptions.

Blizzard games have absolutely zero competition. They don't have to reduce their prices.

They have competition, they just live on an armada of fanboyism and stupidity, they don't need nothing else.

Anything made by Bethesda.
Anything made by Rockstar (you do see the old ones on sale from time to time on Steam though).

Uh? No. Skyrim is $30 right now, and Max Payne 3 is $20. I just don't see how those prices don't constitute a drop from the regular one. And that's not counting Steam Sales.

Blizzard is pretty notorious for keeping their game prices steady for a long time after being released. Whereas most companies now seem to release a GOTY edition as soon as possible, Blizzard is content to remain at release price for years.

They do have sales every now and then though. I remember getting an email for Heart of the Swarm at 50% off a little while ago.

well, not giving any damn whatsoever in regards to WoW, i suddenly found myself in possession of a free copy of the battlechest so...

i do agree that some companies who either have exclusive rights to their games through their own clients or are too popular for their own good, have decidedly higher average pricing than everyone else with stuff like launch prices of $60 and far less frequent sales being the main factors.
PC hardware doesn't need to match console hardware in price when PC gamers save literal thousands from the software they buy.

COD takes forever to drop by PC standards. While you can normally find a sale of most games at $15-30 within 6 months or so, COD almost NEVER drops in price. Heck, I think MW3 is still like $40-60 or something.

I know for WoW at least, they now include the first 2 expansions in the base game (up to Wrath of the Lich King, I think) so thats something from Blizz at least.

And yeah, they frequently have holiday deals on the other expansions (like $5 or $10 each)
