Is that a US ad or from somewhere else? Because I would have thought a lot of those games would have been $50

That's a US ad.  Prices are accurate for those games at/before launch.

I remember those days.  Not fondly, as I was but a wee lad trying to save my Christmas/Birthday money in hopes of perhaps getting a new game to play.

I think that's the point; if a game is somehow worse than its prequels from over a decade ago, it's probably not worth playing.

I disagree, mainly because "not as good as..." doesn't make it a bad game.  It's still a good game, and quite enjoyable.  Not every sequel is going to be a step up from the games before it, and that shouldn't be the qualifier for whether or not it's "worth" playing.  It's not as though the game looks terrible, or has horribly broken systems - I just didn't find the story to be as engaging.  Purely subjective.

I'd apply the same to movies, honestly.  I wouldn't say "You shouldn't watch Rogue One, it's not as good as Empire Strikes Back".  Rogue One was still a pretty good movie.  I would, however, say "You shouldn't watch The Phantom Menace, it's much worse than all previous Star Wars movies", because Phantom Menace is actually bad.

I've been tempted by the CE at gamestop. My store still has one marked down to $29.

I'd say it's worth that (at least).  The statue is gorgeous, and I'm a sucker for artbooks, soundtracks, and steelbooks.

It's one of the few games I was able to get the "Stupid Expensive Edition" of for a significant discount on clearance.  The version with a statue, something like $25 from Gamestop.

The other was Ni No Kuni 2.

 

It really isn't a bad game at all.  It's just not as good as the first two.
