Unfortunately, the games I don’t finish drastically outnumber the games I do finish (of those that can actually be finished, anyway). Nothing is a harsher reminder of that than the announcement of a sequel.
Up until a sequel is announced, I can tell myself “Eh, I’ll get back to that game someday. There’s no rush.” Once there’s a follow-up in the works, suddenly there feels like a shelf-life on that excuse.
All in all though, I liked what I saw during the PS5 presentation. Very little really knocked my socks off from a “Whoa, that’s Next-gen!” standpoint, but at the very least there’s a lot of great gaming in the near future, and that’s always a good thing.
Actually, if anything I’m feeling a bit overloaded with all of the gaming announcements happening this month. Without E3 to sort of, I don’t know, schedule these things, it feels like announcements are just pouring out from every direction, and it’s a scramble just to try and watch/read it all, much less digest it.
Right now, I’m finding myself super psyched for the new Spider-man, obviously, Horizon despite the guilt, and I’m not even a cat-person, but Stray looked really interesting. Also, it’s been a long time since I’ve played Demon’s Souls, the OG that started the whole “soulslike” genre, so I’m excited for the remake as a chance to revisit it.
I’m not super enamored with the PS5 console itself… but fortunately my consoles are inside an AV cabinet, and not on display. So I won’t need to stare the weird melted-taco.
