Well to have doubts about the game in this area or that is legitimate.
Here is the thing though, how many games are even in this genre (space flight sim, rpg).
It's not like we are talking about a normal FPS, where there seems to be more in existence than is reasonable.
But that is really the issue, just like Zygna, other game companies go back and do the financially tried and true over and over,
creativity is not high on the agenda but copy catting is and gamers buy it just like fast food (you know it's not good for you but you do it anyway)
Do you think a large studio would try something like this? SWTOR had zillions in budget and gave us a rail shooter.
So, we can all have our doubts, lets just make sure to put it in perspective.
If the game succeeds or not financially, technically, socially, it has at least dared.
