Points should be deducted due to poor graphics. Low poly isn't an "art style", it's just bad graphics period. It's 2022, good gameplay expected and good graphics assumed.
You dont like the art style? Fine. Thats ok. I'm also not very fond of it. But you use technical, pseudo objective arguments "Its 2022 ..." you describe your personal taste. And that's stupid.

Conceptually the entire Embracer Group is still a mystery though, do they actually have a plan for each studio? Or do they just throw money at a random wall and look what sticks to it?
Their strategy is to gobble up every market niche the majors have left because they were too small for the BIG GLOBAL BUSINESS, where selling 8 mio units of a game is a commercial dissapointment. Embracer is what 20 years ago were middle class publishers like THQ, who made good money, but werent even close to the gargantuan revenues of EA or Activision.

And Embracer does make good money with those smaller projects, older IPs, Remakes/Remasters.

But I'm pretty sure they have setup their company/trust/whatever such that it will continue to try to fuck up the US for decades to come, so they both still get the blame...
Not really. The remaining Koch distanced himself from the Tea Party Movement, regrets what they did to the US only to save a few tax dollars.

Valve doesn't have a big history of trying to lie and deceive like a lot of other companies.
Yup. Valve isnt a publicly traded company, there is no duty to report, there are no investors you have to impress, no need to spin bad news into something positive.

I blame the lack of guns in the paws and hoofes of the "enemy". And lack of PvP in a hunting game, so you cant pepper the behind of your buddies with a few bullets. That's not huntin'!!

My inability to hit a damn rat is killing me.
For me it was the games tendency to spawn enemies right next to you, when you wanted to rest. Down on health and mana, seeking refuge in an empty room, closing the door, going to sleep and *bäng* a Bowman suddenly stands in the corner, killing me with one shot. That was fun ...

Daggerfall was a game i wanted to like so badly. But there were so much mindfuckingly stupid game design choices, combined with the games utter lack of transparency (i never found out, if i rolled bad stats or was just bad at the combat mechanic or did something else wrong), that i finally gave up, sold my copy to a friend (who wrote himself a trainer and had fun fucking around with the world) and never looked back.

There is much to love about older games, but I'm glad that some things really have improved over time.

That and probably many other reasons are why Valve dropped it.
The problem with Valves own expectations right there ... good with potential for more wasnt good enough. Every new project had to be groundbreaking, outclassing anything else from the start. A fun, solid game which would make good money and give players a good time? Meh!

No, there is no hate for Gabe. This is his company, he can do what he wants. But its a bit sad, when you think of what could have been.

Nothing? That is the secret to their success. They spend relatively little on marketing.
Little? The last two addons for Titan Quest were announced in a short tweet by the developers themselves the day of their release. Thats how you make profit. Make content for franchises with a dedicated following, adjust your budget accordingly, do not spend anything on marketing because you dont have to convince this niche = profit!

I was really surprised, but Embracer does really make a decent profit. They dont aim to be the next Take 2 or EA, they just aim to earn money. Which in the long run does bolster their stock, because their investors are not in for quick growth, but steady growth.

So... it plays like the mage in Hexen?
No. Way harder. Standing still means death. Getting too close to enemies means death. You are not playing a heavily armoured tank, but a physically fragile woman. Keep your distance, but no too far away, because these critters are good in dodging your ranged spells. Of which you have limited ressources. Protections spells are good, but are depleted FAST, when you let yourself getting hit all the time.

I remember starting to play with Godmode very soon, because i couldnt figure out how to play it properly
This is NOT just a shooter with magic. This is more like a tactical One Power simulator.

But saying it isn't a coherent game is simply incorrect.
It is correct. You might not have a problem with that, which is fine, but NMS really IS a bundle of features on top of bad foundation.

For example the landscape rendering is getting worse with every update after Beyond. Before Synthesis you did not need a fast SSD. After Synthesis walking speed is somewhat ok, but when using a vehicle the game requires a fast SSD to pre-load all terrain textures and objects to NOT experience heaviest stuttering. I have to select the lowest quality setting to get NMS barely (!) playable again.

I really had fun with the game, modded me a nice setup, but still ... NMS a bundle of quite enjoyable features, not a coherent game. And every big update since Synthesis made performance more worse, because they did not optimise anything, just piled more and more things up in the rendering queue.

Its not. They clearly were inspired by Doom 2016. If you like that, all good. If not ... well ... in a sale perhaps?

Has the game delivered what was promised at launch?
A few things were finally integrated like multi-player, but we all are still looking for the planets we were shown in the trailers. And there is no faction warfare in space, corporates vs. players. vs. sentinels or whatever.

Point is ... they heavily improved the game from the abysmal release version. You can buy NMS and have really fun with it. Its ok. Decent game. If you like relaxing while doing some light grinding in space ... yeah, why not?

But Murray was a dirty liar. And NMS shows everywhere, that they only added up features on top a bad foundation. NMS still is a mess regarding the UI and gameplay. Its a bundle of nice features, but not a coherent game.

I hope it is 500 hours of the censored German version! Just to promote how great the game is for the many German hippies who play games where they kill zombies (or sit down with them to talk about their aggressive behavior).
*sigh* Germans are easily able to buy and play non-german versions of this game.

Cool, another case solved by a corporation cataloging the public domain and it's citizens, then being used by law enforcement as a big brother surveillance program that skips over all the privacy and protection rights of the citizens it seeks to protect.
A static, one (!) time picture of two people standing in public space, one of them a wanted criminal is NOT surveillance, its a lucky incident.
