On hype

“The truth is, the game I was so excited to play never existed. It was a delusion I wanted to believe in. A lofty idea that was never real. I got so excited tracking down pre-release news and discussion that I began to enjoy that more than I ever could the actual product. I used that drip of information to rationalize building up an impossible image of what I hoped the game would eventually be. Of course it was disappointing for me when I had to face the reality. Nothing could’ve matched that expectation.”
