late capitalist social media is such a hellscape that whenever i see someone gush at length about how much they're looking forward to a video game or whatever, i can only assume they're being paid by the post

@inferiorwit Right? Nobody gets that excited for something they haven't played yet. You can only critique something AFTER experiencing it. Anything else is just forced enthusiasm or assumptions based on the previous game? And like, the former is dirty, but the second is just setting yourself up for disappointment.

(that said, ngl, i'm still fairly keen for Youngblood)


@annachronism the thing that really gets me is when a game gets announced and people start THANKING the studio that's making it

like, calm down, they're still gonna charge money for it
