You're ready, you're waiting, you've paid in advance and you're drooling with anticipation because in five minutes the store will open and you'll finally get your hands on the Brand New Videogame (tm) that'll make your life complete. Good luck. Games are almost always late and it blows chunks. I'm not talking a day or two late, I mean weeks, months and even years late. A friend of mine bought a game and had to wait two years before it finally came out.

Two years! That's forever! Can you imagine if you did that? Try handing in your homework two weeks late, showing up for school at 4pm, eating dinner at midnight, etc... You'd get in serious trouble in no time.


One year I was given two smokin' new games for my birthday. Almost. The games were late. So I opened my big present and instead of getting the games I found a little piece of paper that said: 'Sorry, they aren't out yet. You'll just have to wait'. It sucked bigtime and the worst was yet to come. I was stuck waiting for the games for so long that I swapped my computer for a Playstation so I could play Final Fantasy VII while I waited. The day after I made the swap my games arrived and some other gump had played them for weeks before I had a chance. Boogers, was I mad!


Game companies get away with way-late games because their boss doesn't yell at them for being late. Here's the thing, we're their boss. It's up to us to yell at them when a game they promised last year still isn't out.


So come on, if you're angry let 'em know. Click to tell us your story about a late game and how much it sucked to wait for it.
