The release of No Man’s Sky forced gamers to once again examine the politics of hype, the disadvantages of buying games on Day 1 and how much they are willing to pay for them.
For the last few weeks any gamer who frequents websites like Kotaku has seen the usual Top 10 lists. One thing I noticed this year is that I have played exactly zero of those games. That doesn’t surprise me.
Don’t get me wrong: it’s still a great game. But Naughty Dog invests so much in the story and it looked so promising at the beginning that I ended up getting severely disappointed.
