Midnight launches; I used to be a sucker for them -- The atmosphere, the queuing, the getting of the supremely hyped game. But then I noticed something: I would always go home and go straight to sleep. Not once did I stay up into the wee hours of the morning playing the game I queued for, which got me to thinking: why did I go to the midnight launch in the first place?
Last night I was this close to going to the Mass Effect 3 midnight launch at Parramatta Westfield, but I went to bed like a Granddad instead.
Anyway, my question: do you guys still go to midnight launches? What's the appeal? Why do you go? And ff not, why not?
