Allow me to introduce myself. My name is Ryan Reynolds, I’m a life long gamer, I recently moved over from XBLA Fans to Xbox Kinect Fans, and I’ve come to realize that I’m impatient. I was always told that with age comes patience. At 25 years old however, I seem to find myself having less and less. I am quickly growing tired and bored of things in my everyday life, and to be quite frank it’s beginning to scare me. When it comes to entertainment in my life, gaming takes up the majority of my “free time”. But lately, I’m finding myself lacking the patience to even bother playing half the time. So I ask myself, why am I so impatient, and what can I do to change this? The answer may be something that many of you don’t want to hear; I need more new games to be released.
That’s right, I said it. I want more new games. I want more sequels, I want more original IPs, I want more downloadable content – the works. More and more I find myself lacking the patience to play through a game for a second time. Other times, I’ll pay for a game, get stuck or get to an dull section, and just flat out never play the game again. There was a time when I was dedicated and would trod through nearly any experience, no matter how bad. But the fact is, I’d honestly rather just pay to experience something new and more enjoyable than something that I’m not having fun with. When I finished Mass Effect 3 and finally got to watch it’s controversial ending, I instantly wanted more. I wanted downloadable content, I wanted Mass Effect 4, and I wanted a Mass Effect MMO. Thus far however, it seems that we’re going to have to wait until summer to get the first batch of Mass Effect 3 DLC, and that’s actually just an extension of the ending that I’ve already seen. I give credit to Bioware for listening to the fans and expanding the ending that’s been the cause of so much drama, but what I really want is more content. By the time Mass Effect 3‘s Extended Cut rolls around, I might not even care anymore. Because I’m impatient.
