Kotaku - Let's Worry About The Games We Already Have

When I was a kid, my parents bought me a copy of Final Fantasy Legend II. This was okay for a while. It was a fun game. Then I found out there was a sequel.

"There's a Final Fantasy Legend THREE?" I said to my mom, screaming. "WHY DON'T I HAVE IT?"

The story is too old to be commented.

...*Sigh* First world problems.

I agree. This writer sounds like a complete douche as he said not much has changed since then.

Another day, another pointless article from Kotaku.

if I had ever said that to my mom I would not be able to sit for a week and not see a game for a year.

- the best part of the article

But in the present everyone thinks Kotaku are a trash site who fishes for hits with garbage most of the time.

I don't think he really wants us in the present.

I don't care about that site I just like that sentence in the article.

Kind of a pointless article, I think. It's rather human nature to want the "next big thing," as he puts it. It's not limited to games in the slightest.

And, honestly, I don't see anything wrong with it.

He's mostly right. There have been many times where the only game I wanted to play is one that isn't coming out for months, and sometimes the anticipation really affects my judgement; it will lead to me trying to "get my fix" with any games remotely similar.

When I first started reading about Ni No Kuni, I couldn't wait for it to come out – so to tide me over, I started to pick up any JRPG which looked remotely similar, regardless of that 22% Metacritic rating. When I first saw the initial videos of the new SimCity, I was bitten with the "city building fever," and I ended up getting the notoriously buggy Cities XL. Yeah... that one.

The sad thing is, by the time a game comes out which I have been anticipating for months, or even years, the luster of excitement is sometimes worn off. Like he said: "Like heroin addicts hunting for black tar to shoot into their veins, we are constantly looking to get our fix."


Fuck it; i'm going to keep shooting up. :P

I always want a new gadget... even if it might just have a "2" stamped on it.
