If a Animal Crossing Items takes more than that the chances of me actually finishing it crash. I work full time and have a pretty shitty schedule so that I can only just game on the weekends the majority of the time.
I have also discovered that devs throw at a lot of useless filler crap or else they inflate the problem of this game so it takes longer since they know they'll face backlash if it's too short. I truly hate feeling like my time is being wasted.
I'll happily spend $60 on a 8-10 hour game that is concise and doesn't waste my time.
There is a few twitter accounts/subreddits you can follow to get updates on PS5 restocks! You may already know about these but I guess it's worth throwing out there in case you don't - that is the way I got mine
You're correct though, the switch is currently very much something that's only good on event. In a ideal world Nintendo will be investing in new party content to where they're dropping a brand new game (or even a port provided that it is not $60) every few months however. . That doesn't happen.
On twitter I turned notifications for @Wario64 and @PS5Stockalerts which got me close a few times but that I had cheap Animal Crossing Bells no chance, although other people got it for certain.
