I use wire ties or Velcro ties. Frequently I just scavenge them off new stuff I buy. I use this in combo with an HDMI switcher so I don't need to frequently change out cords. I also reserve my least played consoles to only being out and plugged in when I want to play them. I put them in dedicated drawers in my tv stand with all their bobbins when I'm done.

For GoTY I'm leaning into Ghost of Tsushima if Cyberpunk doesn't dethrone it. Didn't play myself but saw my SO playing it and it looks top notch. I mostly just sat around and gawked at the attention to Japanese culture, history, and terrain.

I feel like CDPR is a lot of people's darling dev company right now though so I think it could steal a last minute win. Meanwhile, I'm still here licking my wounds that there's no Media option. Really they got rid of all the face classes. I still ordered the game, but ouch it's a lot less classes than they initially promised.

I got a few retro protection covers in summer 2019 (1 amiibo, Let's Go! Pikachu size, and 1 Funko pop)  and they all served me well, protecting my cardboard during a cross country move. I now display them in the cases. There's a little glare, but the only one that's really noticeable is the amiibo since it's not fitted. I can't recommend them enough.

Yeah, I stick to goodwill and the net. I've seen mind mindbogglingly expensive prices at pawn shops and such as of late. I'll never understand collector influencers so I don't watch them, but the bubbles are pretty obvious sometimes. Just wait them out, they usually seem to pop eventually when everyone who has one suddenly want to sell it to cash in.

"introductory price” of $5.99 a month during it's Early access...

That worries me this could be really pricey down the road. Also, you'll need fire stick for tv connection I think? Could get pricey quickly if you want all the bobbins. Plus it looks like you'll have to pay for more games. I already saw a section for in the future that looks like you can purchase an Ubisoft games channel. I just don't know if I'd play enough to get my money's worth. Subscriptions are tricky. Really depends on the person if you'll get your money's worth or not.

I got a switch at launch so I'd know I had one when Splatoon 2 came out. Got mine in my backwoods walmart without a fuss. Nintendo handhelds are usually high priority for me. I also had a launch day New 3ds. Otherwise, I tend to wait on consoles to price drop. They don't usually have a good launch library anyway. Now though it's hard to want consoles at all when PC is an option. I find myself getting most ps4 games on the switch or PC instead.

The World Ends With You
Yokai Watch (I played in jp. I hear there are changes, but I don't know how many. I think they shamelessly just called it America.)
Shin Megami Tensei Series
Muramasa: The Demon Blade
Nightshade (An otoge about the Kouga and Iga ninja clans after their merger, but the romance is a bit light in many of the routes.)

I'm no platformer aficionado, but I always have to throw in my two cents.

Favorites: Mario Sunshine and Odyssey, Spyro 2: Ripto's Rage
I can play any of these over and again.

Least favorite: Croc
I remember having this as a child. So slippery, weird physics/momentum. I hated it. Too bad, as it was kind of cute.

Yeah, I think it's going to be soon. I can't say I like the photo-realistic stuff, but I think stylized games will benefit as well from these advancements. I don't however think that graphics will end the console generations like some people I have encountered. I suspect they'll start competing over other things like improved speeds and features.

I chase high scores in rhythm games, but only trying to beat my personal bests. Online leader boards are too competitive for my blood.

The World Ends With You OST always blew me away, especially for being on the DS. It fit really well and still feels pretty unique. It's something that doesn't even always feel like game music when shuffled in with my normal music.

Honorable mentions:
Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch

My Skullcandy headphones last me like 5 years before they need replacing and by then I'm getting the newer model. My husband uses their ear buds, but I don't know what they're made of since I need over ear. Inner ear headphones kept giving my blisters and blackheads no matter what I did.

I manage to mostly avoid bad games, but holy crap, controversial opinion, I loathed Breath of the Wild as soon as I got past the sip test. It was miserable. Constant enemy fights that took several minutes, broke all my good weapons, dropped a crappy stick in return for all my effort. It made exploring a nightmare so I just stayed put on roads avoiding most of the game, then they threw in the ninjas, literally. I never could bring myself to go defeat Ganon even after completing all four guardians. It was all far too tedious. I felt so defeated for not getting why this was the "best" Zelda ever. I think I'll probably skip the sequel.

Swimming, I grew up in a hot climate and living in one to this day. Swimming is great to cool off and work out without blowing out my crappy joints. Swimming is also just a good skill to have. I wouldn't want to drown.  It's a fairly common life skill where I'm from unlike where I live now.
