Do games give you the Christmas effect?
Remember when you were a child and Christmas or whatever holiday you celebrated came around, the excitement that filled your every fiber? The anticipation and obsession for the event and when it came, you were drenched in a euphoria that caused you to speak louder than usual, or move around excitedly. I still get that feeling, but now it's brought on by games more often than events. Awaiting the next AAA title and the first time it boots up on your screen still has a magic to me that I can only describe as the Christmas effect. Nothing else fills me with this sort of reliable joy like gaming does and it got me to wonder how many other people can relate to this. Do you get butterflies the day of a big game release? Is your face froze in a permanent smile as you take the cellophane off your latest game? Or is one game the same as the next to you and while you enjoy it, you're not overwhelmed by the experience? Have any games on the PSP made you feel this way?
