    I'm enjoying it, and  that's all that matters to me.

    yes I am very serious. 

    I have no idea how much they spent or where the money came from but I repeat

    1. there has been more articles in gaming publications written about this game then all those others.
    2. there has been more articles is non-gaming publications written about this game then likely  all those games COMBINED.
    4. none of those games had interviews on TV shows. multiple TV shows I might add
    I have not seen a single TV show mentioning NMS. Not a single TV add. Not a single Magazine add. Not a single poster. Nothing! Other than here and there on the internet.
    If I had not been following this site and some others, I wouldn't even have known about this game until last week when it launched and seen the PS4 box on the shelf.

    On the other hand:
    Both SW:TOR and Destiny where everywhere! Litterally everywhere! Same with Blizzard's games! or any CoD or BF game for that matter.

    - TV adds
    - Trailers in cinema
    - Posters everywhere
    - Plenty of coverage in non-gaming Magazines. Forbes and other similar sites have been covering games for years now! Open your eyes a bit more perhaps? NMS is definitely not the only one.
    Forbes has been covering an insane amount of articles on Destiny the last couple years! And before that on SW:TOR and other games.

    You must have had severe tunnel vision syndrome or suffer from amnesia if you cannot remember the insane marketing campaigns behind these games.

    And then I haven't even mentioned Mass Effect 3 or Skyrim.
    you're wrong in terms of hype - not advertisements but hype.

    NMS is in a league of its own in terms of how much free hype it was given by others without any investment in the game.

    Whatever happened to researching a game yourself and coming to your own conclusion (either purchasing it or passing on it). Hating on a game because you don't like it is valid, but trying to convey that opinion as a reason why others shouldn't play it or how the company did something against you is just wrong.

    First off I never get caught in the hype, and this is a perfect example. I didn't hear of this game until a few days ago (when I think it launched). I will admit it was hard to determine what type of game it was but a few factors 1. indie development 2. large scope 3. on-going development essentially told me this might be something I could enjoy but probably not at launch since the mature content I envision wouldn't be available until later on in the cycle.

    Meaning for 60 dollars its not worth it to me today, but I will follow the development and when certain features mature or new ones I'm interested in added I will probably pick it up and give it a try. And if I end up not ultimately liking it, supporting a dev with 60 dollars isn't going to break me and is a good investment. Which I believe in the process to get better games. I don't see how complaining helps.
    There's a ton of stuff they showed and said would be in the game that has since been removed.  Things the devs never said was removed.

    Wanted to point out yet another thing that's been proven wrong in that Reddit post listing all the things that were supposedly left out of the game / lies by Sean Murray: Creatures killing eacother.

    The thing the Reddit post didn't bother to mention, and that lots of others seem to be overlooking is the fact that there are various "Temperaments" for the creates such as submissive, prey, docile, stalker, hunter, etc. For some silly reason some folks seem to be under the impression that all creatures will just randomly be off on killing sprees attacking anything that isnt the same as them, but much like our own world, various creatures live in peace alongside eachother. In the game, you're not going to see a docile vegeterian go try to eat a submissive vegeterian. Youve got to have the right mix of creatures.

    I recently found a herd of several creatures mixed together, all non-aggresive types, then not too far away found a hunter type which chased after me. I let him chase me over to the herd of other creatures, jetpacked up onto a buildin out of his reach, then sat back and watched him go to town on the whole herd. The only thing left alive was a giant creature, about as big as the building i was on top of. Seems to have realized it was outmatched and left it alone for all of the much smaller prey. I even watched him chase a few of them around in circles, repeatedly leaping at them and missing while they evaded him, but he was persistent and got them all.
