Great article Paul! Your experience gives you ‘insider’ insight. I hope that in the future HG and Sean will be vindicated. For the record, NMS is the first and only game I have ever pre-ordered. I knew (enough) of what I was getting and what the game was, and was not, to know I would enjoy it. Something like 50 hours in at this point and having a great time.
People need to get control of their own hype, not blame a game dev who is not a PR professional and is talking about a creation he loves!
