Chris going backwards on an unicycle
"Star Citizen is never going to be finished." I think that's the first truth Chris has ever stated.
He cannot compare his definition of finish to Blizzard's or CCP's. For them finished means the game's going gold. It is actually a feature complete title ready to be shipped. Can you imagine Eve Online launching with like 3 systems and 2 planets and 70% of features missing? It's not even a game at that point. lol
Not to contradict you or anything but fun fact: EVE online launched in an absolute shambles. I know because I was there. The publisher/investor they had backing them pulled out and they were left with a game that is so very different to the EVE of today it is not funny.
EVE's story is so incredible because it is one of the few MMOs I know that started with an absolutely minuscule player base and gradually grew to incredible numbers for an indie MMOG.
CCP literally dragged EVE from mostly a shell with very few working systems to a great game. Not a game for everybody, but you can't dispute their dedication and efforts.
