What world did you live in where games were 40 bucks? I paid 55 bucks for SNES games in the early 90s. 50-60 dollars for games have been the norm for the past 30 years. The 70 dollar mark is new and honestly understandable. Sorry if it’s too much for you but game pricing in general hasn’t gone up in over 30 years.
You fail to mention that game studios went from selling 100k copies of a game to literal millions, most of which are now digital and don't carry the cost of packaging a physical copy.

Oh, and that Bethesda is rolling in dough, and is owned by one of the richest corporations on the planet, but yeah, the poor starving developers that brought you fallout 76 need more of your money!
