There’s nothing more palpable than the excitement opening a new console on Christmas day, followed by the dread of that one forgotten oversight for the gift.
Did you remember to get batteries?
Do you have to charge it before use?
Are there additional things you need before you can use it?
For gaming particularly, gone are the days where you could just plug in and play. My first gaming Christmas present was my Super Nintendo console, complete with ‘Kid Klown in Crazy Chase’. It was an interesting experience for sure, and probably explains my lack of patience in life. That intro music also still haunts me to this day.
