Great review. I’ve seen many simply ignore some of the positives of the game whilst highlighting the negatives, yet this piece paints a clever, and full picture of the situation. No Man’s Sky is a unique experience, which may not be for everyone. However, crying about small bugs or the confusion and lack of multi-player is stupid, which is what most people are doing. The sheer size of the game, and the strange sense of loneliness in a universe as big as No Man’s Sky is truly mind-blowing. It has given me hope for games in the future and it might even get better with updates.
What I personally love most is the constant reminder of how big our universe is and leads me to wonder what we would find if we spent more time focusing on understanding the earth, space and space travel, rather than fighting over control of nations and currency.
