I've gotten a hard time in the past about video games. People my age or older a lot of the time think it's a waste of time and money. But this is my hobby. I used to fish, snowmobile, motorcycle, play tons of sports, but now that I have a family I don't have the time to go on weekend fishing trips, etc. So for me, gaming is a good hobby because I can play in the evening for a couple of hours when everyone goes to bed. Where as though other hobbies I mentioned take much more of a commitment.
My point is that $60 for a "good" game is worth it to me for the hours and hours that I get out of it. Even when you add up all of the hardware, it is still much cheaper than those other hobbies. I don't have a boat/snowmobile/motorcycle payment anymore which can be hundreds of dollars a month. I bought BoTW in November and the DLC just recently and I'm still playing that game. $80 that lasts me several months of play compared to several hundred dollars a month for hobbies that I would be limited to do because of my circumstances? No brainer for me.
With that said, there are some games that I don't feel are worth $60. But to someone else, they may be.
