Today I made a realisation -- sometimes I'm a sucker for internet hype. I haven't played a Bethesda game extensively since Morrowind. Sure, I tried Oblivion and Fallout 3, but I didn't really get into it. Not really. So why am I excited about Skyrim? I'm probably not even going to play the bloody thing! I'm guessing it's the total saturation of voices screaming SKYRIM at the top of their collective voices. So what about you guys? Do you think you're susceptible to hype?
Don't get me wrong -- when I get a game in my hands, I'm always keen to develop my own opinion on it. But in the lead up to release, I find it so easy to get caught up in the wave, to the point where I often enjoy reading about games more than actually playing them.
Anyway -- what do you guys think about internet hype surrounding games?
