Well im not sure how old you are so not sure if you remembered when some SNES games were +$100 CAD, and that was like during mid 90s, which would be around $150 CAD now with inflation.  So paying $100 a game again wouldn't be surprising.  But it still sucks big times.

Canadians had it good last gen (PS3/360) as our dollar was better and our systems/games were the same price amount as the US.

I was living in the Netherlands at the time and I remember Nintendo cartridges being sold for up to 250 guilders at Fame on the Dam square (1998) The shop is gone now, there is a bank in its place. I used to get my Laserdiscs there at 80 to 90 guilders a piece. The guilder (doesn't exist anymore either) was worth about $0.52, so around $45 for a Laserdisc and up to $130 for (imported) Nintendo games.

I spend close to a 1,000 guilders a month at that store in movies and games.

No wonder they went bankrupt after I left the country :)

I miss the times with both Guilders and Belgian francs,cheaper times and it actually looked like i had money in my wallet.(well yeah all cheaper except for the games)

I went a full night out with 500 Belgian francs or around 25 guilders that are now around 12,5 euros/14 american dollars,crazy how prices inflated so rapidly after the Euro beh.
