Is $49.95 too much to pay for a game?

I remember 10 years ago I would buy video games for 70-80 dollars. It wasn’t until recently that the MSRP for games dropped to $49.99, and I expect that price to continue to drop. I gladly paid 70 bucks back then, but these days I just don’t feel up to buying games as often. Perhaps if games took longer to beat or were more enjoyable, it would be worth it. I remember games like the original Mario Bros, or Super Mario Bros, or Goldeneye, or The Legend of Zelda, games that took me weeks or months to beat the first time I played them. I beat a game like Luigi’s Mansion within six hours of getting the game. Games are becoming more graphics intensive and not as gameplay focused as they used to be.
