We probably all know this feeling: a new game gets announced and all you want is to play it RIGHT NOW
I always loved the hype phase for a game. Getting excited for a fresh new release was always a joy.
However even I have a certain amount of any game I’m excited about there was one moment in my life I always remember.
the first time
Me a young boy who only had a wii and a DS has probably only played Mario/Zelda/pokemon/wii sports games was about to meet my first hardcore game.
I certainly don’t remember how I got to know about it but during that time I was completely into Dinosaurs.
Then one day a trailer caught my eye (probably on the wii trailer channel) it was a CGI trailer for Monster Hunter Tri.
I was absolutely stunned by it. The moment it was clear I WANT THIS and what soon followed was me creating a drawn calendar and each day I made a new cross.
I will always remember the moment I hold this masterpiece in my hands for the first time. What would follow was a ridicules time sink. I lost 360 hours in it.
My last wii game for a considerable time after I switched to pc and xbox 360…
The next time I would ever be this hyped was Halo 5 and Breath of the Wild.
I certainly think Halo Infinite could be potentially my most hyped game of all time. We’ll see.
As it stands hype for me is probably very unique to gaming. As you invest so much time in it it definitely can make you emotional.
I wonder what was your first hype circle?
