Really can't get into it.
Pretty much, game died as it launched, too much hype for no gameplay just a sandbox. Much like Star Crashizen which is even worse.
But there are people who enjoy mindless grinding and collecting, just look at WoW, Minecraft, ...

With all of the people who cancelled their pre-orders, refunded the game, or just plain didn't buy it, how do they even have the funds to keep releasing free content for it? I just don't get it, but more power to them. Maybe in another year or two this game will actually be worth playing.

I think this answeres some questions.



No Man's Sky is a means to an end, not an end in itself.
People playing No Man's Sky are not actually playing the main content of the game, they're playing with the ancillary effect of Sean Murray playing his own games.

When No Man's Sky launched I was furious about it, clearly a lot of things happened that were outside of Sean's control, but he still went along with it just to satisfy his own goals.

Now, years later, even as someone who finally bought the game this year, all I can say is this is one of the most "interesting" events that I've ever seen in gaming history.
The outcome isn't "bad", people are getting something to play, but even if the player experience is regularly improving it's clear that the player experience is actually a secondary concern to the overall project (I'll cite the condition of PC controls as a good reason to think they're not overly concerned with the player experience).

I think this is the most overt case I've ever seen of a developer who's main focus is producing content for themselves (not just money) instead of developing with a mindset of producing content for their audience.
Not that I personally know a lot of people in the industry, maybe a lot of other developers do still function like this, you just never see them thrust into center stage the way Sean Murray has been.

I still can't hit 60fps @1440 in that game. They seem to have issues with AMD, at least in my experience.

Really can't get into it.

Minecraft is the same thing and tens of thousands are still into it. The difference? Price and expectation. If the game cost only $30, I'd probably look into it. But as it stands, it's absolutely not worth $60.

Well, if the problem is the price, No Man's Sky is currently and for the next 40 hours still, at 50% off on Steam, for 27,49€.

Hello games released a poll not too long ago asking players what they wanted to see next in regards to the game. Performance improvements was on that short list. I dont remember the results, but i hope a lot of players checked that box. Possibly after this new content, they'll tell us whats next on their agenda.

I don't care how it runs if it's not fun. If you want to collect rocks as a hobby ... cool! Not my thing but I understand. But in a video game? Why?

I put 4 hours into it and it was me hating it the entire time and just really being nice to the friend who bought it for me ... I spent pretty much the entire time fetching things and shooting my laser at rocks and plants and that's about it.
