    When you say "its worth a dollar" or any other price..

    do you mean that the graphics and time put into make it worthy of that pricing?

    or that you would really love this type of game and you should spend the money on it.

    or other.. in case there's another reason.


    i was just wondering.

    For me it's "worth the money" if I enjoyed the time playing it and the game wasn't too short. Of course, I realize that comment in and of itself is subjective, but let me give you an example:

    Back in the day, I bought an adventure game for my Amiga. The game cost $30, and though it was a lot of fun, it only took my half an hour to play. Not worth the money.

    Stone Of Destiny cost me 99 cents, and I got roughly 2 1/2 hours of game play out of it. That was definitely worth the money.

    Graphics are nice, but aren't always a good indication of time spent on the game. Some of these one man "teams" might just not have artistic skill, but that doesn't mean they didn't put a lot of effort into the game. I like pretty graphics, but as long as the game was enjoyable I'll live with mediocre visuals.
