Said it was a great game if you just want to have a few beers and fly/walk around looking at stuff but there isn't really anything to do per se, at least nothing that means anything. Which is what I thought it'd be.
Bias confirmation is a powerful trip.
It`s quite sad to see that majority (at least judging by comments here) of once-leading in innovation PC gaming community are locked in a baseless hate exercise, which stands against all the previous achievements. Funny times, huh.
But, well, whatever. To those who are still on the fence and/or confused by the naysaying barrage, let`s dispel few of the more thirsty/dumbass claims:
- there is actually a point/ending to a game - if you really need this sort of Guffin and don`t just enjoy roleplaying/creating your own stories in an infinite sandbox, which to me is the major selling point here. The goal is to reach the center of the universe. What`s there? Who knows, and, why should we know? I mean, would you like to know the ending to a game you`re just about to play?
-comparisons to "minecrafts" are ridiculous: this is an actual game with bazillion gameplay systems, Minecraft has a "game" mode but is more of a digital Lego where you just build stuff. Here you need to do things in order to survive and go further: just like in any normal game.
-this is mainly single player OFFLINE game. Online component is just charting the galaxy and possibility of meeting other players. It`s also completely OPTIONAL.
-things you won`t find in here: Miranda`s ass and million-polygon Z-tesselated LMFASSAO+ spaceship, corridors/invisible walls, hand-holding "tell me a story Mommy" plot, autopilot "no need to think, you`ll progress anyway" gameplay. Sorry! There`s plenty of other titles that do that sort of thing though.
