Why is Metro 2033 so high?

So i was going to play Metro 2033 before i get Last Light, and i went to both Ebay and Amazon and the game is minimum 40$ to 100$ which is ridiculous for a standard edition of a game only a couple of years old... the PC version is selling from 5$ to 20$.

I just picked up a copy at GameStop on Tuesday for $25 so I can clean up the rest of the achievements.

Granted, it was the last copy they had.

Also, apparently the game only sold around 300,000 copies when it was out, so there aren't as huge a number to come by as some other, more popular titles. Supply and demand generally dictate price...

Price has always been high. Ive been waiting for the price to go down but I finally just bought it for $25($30 without the power up rewards). Its an uncommon game. Just like need for speed most wanted and carbon which sell for $$25 to $40 used. They are uncommon and have been out since 05 and 06. 7 years!

I just picked up a copy at EB Games used but still in pretty good condition for $12. I mean the case wasn't damaged at all. No scratches, bumps, fading, etc. Same with the disc. I remember the price being a bit high still last year when it was still $30 used but I think the price has finally deflated after all the THQ news and just time in general.

It is not a prequel, itīs just a previous game, prequel would be for example Metro "3" if the game/story would be happening before the previous games.
(another example - MW1 is not a prequel to MW2, it is just a previous game in the series....)
