One weird side effect of Magic Arena making #MTG easier to play is that I've been oddly playing it a lot less.
It used to be that Draft was a thing where I had one chance to do it or miss it for that week, so it upped the pressure to play and do well.
Now that I can draft any time, much, cheaper, it becomes so easy to put it off because I'm taking it for granted.

There are so many modal and situational things that need their own buttons, so it's always hard to remember which random key I've bound them to!
It doesn't help that most joysticks just give their buttons unhelpful names like "Button 76", so even if you get an on screen prompt that says "Press Button 76 to eject", there's no way I'm finding that one lol.

I think that as my attention span has diminished and my outlook on life has matured, it makes sense as to why I have developed a new preference for "games" over "virtual worlds". When I was young, I had the time, need, and suspension of disbelief for escapism into other worlds.
Now that I'm constantly weighing the value of my time with every action, aimlessly playing make-believe no long seems prudent, whereas time-bound, goal-driven games with clear endings become attractive.
I like my takes the way I like my wings. 🔥
