It'll have as much game to it as Minecraft does. If that appeals to you, then this may be the game for you.
Pretty much what I'm seeing. As someone who loves open worlds and exploring, I'm in!
This has no building/construction of any kind though, does it? That's like 99% of Minecraft's appeal. I don't see many videos of random Minecraft seeds, but thousands of "We built the Death Star in Minecraft!"
Actually there was a time when people were out exploring random seeds and posting videos and screenshots etc from it. If there is an appeal to NMS, I expect it will be mostly from that kind of crowd.
While the hype is redonkulous, this does have some appeal to me. Along with the storyline and researching alien languages, almost like a more fleshed out version of the mass effect 3 planet searching. Not something I would put a lot of time in, but I could see myself roaming around for an hour or two every once in a while.
Just like I did with Minecraft, as the tech tree and collecting resources was what was fun for me there. I never knew what to build was the problem.
