what does it being 2D have anything to do with the price?

Grahpics arent the only thing that take time and effort in a game

Maybe you would enjoy the sims 4 more. It's free and it's 3D.

After 1600 hours on RimWorld I can't say it isn't worth it.
Looking at WoW, you paid for the base game, expansions, and monthly fees. Warhammer Total War not only charges you a lot up front it also nickel and dimes you with race packs. Oh, and of course there's Paradox games and their harem of DLCs.

Welcome to modern gaming.

3 expansions for $65 is expensive? I feel like a bunch of people were in cryosleep for like 10 years and just woke up. Also why is it always the people with private profiles asking these questions.

Yea, I mean, expansion used to cost like only $9-10, even base game used to be only around $15, typical 2D game that is. 3D game is more expensive, because it's just 3D.

What private profile got anything to do with asking these types of question?
They're NOT $65 all up if you don't buy the DLC's and use free mods *taps forehead* 8)

Treat yo self to those free mods.

Expansion content varies widely from game to game, so you can't really make a blanket statement about their cost. There is an extensive and complex network of intermeshed systems working behind all of that 2D information to produce the gameplay. (And how long ago was your used to be? Because I can't remember a time when a game was $15 with the amount of depth and simulation of Rimworld.) Implementing those systems is a lot of work.

Cause Rimworld is an awesome game and the DLCs adds a bunch of new content and when you couple that up with mods, you'll get a ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ of content in total.
Games are that good don't have to be on sales to sell.

Expansions for what cost only $9-10? Even 10 years ago that's not a thing, and 2D, 3D doesn't dictate price. That's a stupid notion. Base game Rimworld offers a ton of content and design, which has nothing to do with graphics.

As for private profiles, it seems like a common thing where people complaining about the prices for this game have their profiles on private, making is difficult to view your hours played on said game you are complaining about. I just find that odd is all.

Private profile means people can't see if you've only played for 10 minutes and actually don't understand or if you're just trolling.
You can skip Royalty which brings the cost down. I highly recommend Ideaology. Biotech looks pretty incredible though I haven't bought it myself yet. Money do be tight. The inner machinations being changed is why these are priced as they are. Skim the 4 part dev blogs about what's added in the latest expansion. https://store.steampowered.com/news/app/294100/view/3319740412992154382
Then consider that these expansions allow for Workshop and the depth this game's expansions offer becomes cavernous.

That said you can skip the DLCs and just use Workshop mods.

I love The Sims 4 but I can't bring myself to buy most DLCs, even on sale, due to how little is added to the game aside from art assets. At best there's a new mechanic or three, at worst, it's just clothes.
Rimworld, and its DLCs, are basically sleeper cars. It's a beat up mid 90s sedan on the outside but inside there's a tuned up V12.

I'd tell you to either just play the base game with mods or buy another game with the same premise. There are plenty nowadays, and before you're scared, they go on sale and are even before that cheaper than any one of these dlcs. Going Medieval or Space Haven are really good imo, but if u put in some time you'll find many more.
The thought that 2D = cheaper than 3D is wrong though. There are many more things to take into consideration.

Just fyi, getting Paradox's most monetized game, Crusader Kings 2, with all its dlcs in a sale is cheaper (or about the same depending on currency) than getting Rimworld and all its dlcs at any time. People here ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ on Paradox while living in the cult of its little brother would almost be funny if it weren't so sad.
