I know full well not to get on the hype train until I've seen actual gameplay footage or, better yet, hands-on time with a game. I'm still excited about the title, but seeing does not equal experiencing. That said, the same goes for the below image which, though brutally honest about the situation, is based on seeing screenshots and trailers.
