QotW: When it comes to time between announcement and release, I like variety. I love a good shadow drop, when something is released out of nowhere, but it would be dull if we never had a chance of anticipation. Anything up to a couple of years is good – again as long as not everything takes that long.
Metroid Prime 4, though, is stretching my patience!
I prefer a year before releases. A shadow drop for small announcements is fine, but I tend to forget games that release in a short amount of time. A year before a release also makes me feel less harried about playing through my backlog.
Anything above two years is excessive, although it’s understandable if a game’s release gets pushed back.
QotW: My sweet spot between announcement and release is six months so I can plan playtime and make sure I have the funds set aside if needed.
