One Aircraft equals one Series of "normal" games, that get "GameTitle" then 2 years later "GameTitle II" and a "Succesor/Prequel" with the same Game and updates to graphics etc. paid for again and again every year... DCS you get the Game upgrades for free.
It took me about 4 to 5 Years to really deep dive into the A-10C alone, no other "game" gave me that much revenue in fun and playtime! The Harrier, F-14 and F/A-18 start keeping up with the A-10 now, so comparing the price for a high fidelity module to a normal game DCS modules are a bargain for me.
The real price tag comes with the hardware.

I really can’t put a price on the enjoyment I get from DCS. Doesn’t matter...and is far cheaper than many things people blow money on. Like the tab at happy hour can be more than a module...where all you get out of it is a headache, feeling like crap later and your friends telling you how stupid you were acting.

Thing is....Zuckerberg is definitely an Alien... Some Kind of Grey Hybrid
