I have other systems, (I'd go insane if I didn't) just not current ones. I've considered getting a PS4 or Xbox One but they just don't excite me and the last time I talked myself into buying a system I wasn't enthusiastic about (3DS) I ended up regretting it.

I don't expect Nintendo alone to put out enough first party games to keep me constantly sustained, but third parties are also refusing to give any release dates; Doom Eternal, Outer Worlds, and Blair Witch are all confirmed for Switch and on my to-buy list, but they won't say when they're coming.

At this point it's less a matter of "I have nothing to play", and more "I need something concrete feel good about for the future, to look forward to."

Fuck, I'm sorry guys, I had a meltdown. I'm just so damn tired and beaten down from the constant, endless stress with no end in sight. I just feel so terrible all the time, and having a cool new game announced or one I want dated would've helped so much.

Are you sure the PS4 wouldn't be up your alley?

It has a deep catalog of acclaimed first parties, plus, a lot of third parties that are probably better on PlayStation than Switch. 

There are actually a few games I'd get on PS4, like RE7 and Horizon, but I'm not so financially well off that a few hundred dollars is an insignificant expenditure, so I should hold off until I hit the end of my tether.

Hopefully some of Switch's undated games arrive in the next few months to hold me over.

It's as much a matter of lacking excitement as lacking stuff to play. I know it may sound sad, but hype is a powerful antidote to anxiety and depression; feeling excited about upcoming release dates and games makes the future feel brighter and less terrifying. It's a positive distraction from the constant threat of cancer and covid-19.



Bet with Liquidlaser: I say PS5 and Xbox Series will sell more than 56 million combined by the end of 2023.
