How No Man’s Sky exposes the gaming generation gap for 80’s kids
Martin Belam

I’m still deeply suspicious of any game whose prime hype is “it’s really big, because we generate it by rolling dice” though, and that’s *because* I grew up playing games in the 80s. Oooh, the pfnids of glurp are red instead of blue! And they love zero-G curling!

Totally agree about single-player vs online however — my gaming time these days is in 20–30 minute chunks while dinner is in the oven or late at night when the TV is available. No time to organise with friends, and no desire to be beaten by randoms. So a few levels of SUPERHOT or Broforce, or a Borderlands 2 mission it is.
