We are getting close now, Cataclysm has gone into Beta, a release date has been announced for FF14, SWTOR won't be too much longer now. We got WAR 40K on the horizon. I think the drought might be over, but what I'm worried about is what happens when you get too much rain after a drought. You get mudslides.
What I'm talking about here is I really can't justify playing more than one game a month. sometimes I buy a game card when i got extra cash, but mostly its just one. So what am I going to do when there is the new WoW Xpac, SWTOR, WAR 40K, LEGO Universe (I hope that games cool), and so many other games that will catch my eye as time moves on.
I think what I might have to force myself to do is not buy any of the new games at launch, and wait and see how they do, and stick with wow for now, cause at least I know I like it. and i wonder how many other people are going to have to make the same decision, hopefully not enough to really hurt box sales. Cause I know these developers deserve to get some money for the work they have done.
I just think (hope) that this batch of games coming out won't be like the previous years, tons of box sales with a mass exodus. I hope these new games coming out keep a good deal of players, and help move the genre forward.
