It’s not that I don’t trust Retro’s ability as a developer. It’s just the passage of time that has eroded any enthusiasm I’ve once had for the game. When gameplay is eventually shown I’ll be happy to climb back aboard the hype train, but until then there are just so many other game releases that I find more appealing.
What concerns me most is In recent years I’ve found Switch hardware performance to be, to put it nicely, not the most stable. Since Prime is a first-person shooter, having frame dips in gameplay can be pretty bothersome, especially for someone like me who is sensitive to it. I have no idea how gameplay will run until I can actually see gameplay released, but I can be realistic based on current and similar switch releases that have already come out.
We are almost on the two-year anniversary since development restarted, and like three and a half-ish years since the game was first announced. Personally, I just can’t be excited for Prime 4 on name alone anymore. But if people are still excited for the games to release more power to them, I’m not here to ruin anyone's fun.
