Games are about immediacy – you push a button, and something happens. That mentality trickles down to every aspect of how they’re presented and marketed too. “Watch the trailer! Get the latest patch! Pre-order now!”
The last few weeks marked the release of some very high profile games – both of which were delayed significantly; The Last Guardian was first shown in 2009, while Final Fantasy XV was teased a decade ago. While both of these games turned out fine, that isn’t always the case. So this week, we ask you:
Should we even be announcing games before they’re feature complete and nearly done?
Do you like boarding the hype train early, or do you find it exhausting? Is it irresponsible of publishers, or is it best to keep audiences in the know?
