Is it dead?

Kane72Kane72 Member UncommonPosts: 208
No-one seems to be talking about it any more and I must admit that since WoW Legions came out, I haven't logged in as I've hit the repetition feeling.

So, is anyone else still playing it and is it worth Hello Games to spend time and money upgrading something that people have moved on from?

    Well the way I see it...  It's like a "SP campaign" game, you start it and you finish / get bored with it and you're pretty much done.

    If NMS had more sandbox to it, Multiplayer and such, it would certainly be something that kept the player base playing and interested.... Without that it depends on the future updates the game may receive. As it is, lacks good ways to keep people playing.

    Perhaps for jaded pc gamers but the game is still going strong on consoles. Mmorpg is not what you should base your knowledge on lol. 

    It's the 8th most bought game in the Uk last weeks, the game is doing fine and being worked on.

    almost 2x the number of people are playing 7 Days to Die right now then NMS and at this time many 7DTD players are not playing because they are waiting for a major update.

    same story, waiting for updates and all, same 2x players...Elite Dangerous

    In the UK however, only the Console owners are buying the game, its not even remotely near the charts on PC.
    That the game has pretty much flatlined on Steam is a surefire indication that the game is, if not dead, then close to it. :o

    Looks like concurrency (on Steam) has dropped by 97.5% in a month, that's pretty savage. It's also only got a 36% positive review rate so pulling in new players will be much more difficult.

    The way I see it, anything they add to the game now will be used as proof of not existing before which will just keep the negativity rolling. HG are between a rock and a hard place, I don't know how they'll ever pull a good proportion of those people back into the game.

    PS4 copys sell for $15-$25 on ebay currently

    LOL nothing a month old is selling for $15-$20 (other then NMS)

    Yep as Savage stated it is, once again, one of the top ten PS4 games sold last week. It has not fallen beyond the top 12 in consoles sales since release. I play it still through GOG so I don't follow the Steam numbers.

    Not sure what an online multiplayer game like 7 Days to Die has to do with a single player game like NMS but whatever. *shrug*

    The only thing they can do to save the game, is take all the money they made and invest every penny into a civilization / multiplayer DLC pack (So you and friends can claim planets, galaxies, solar systems ect ect ect, which would cause wars trade, all that stuff that would have kept a pulse on this game for years and years)

    I know we will never get that which half of that was promised and civilation could have easily been built off of if the original design for multiplayer wasnt 100% bullshit.

    I play it a few times a week now, but that's normal for me with a single player game.  Most of my gaming time is still spent on ESO lately.

    I guess. Yet I usually look at single player games and hold other single player games up as comparisons.
    It seems more apples to apples that way.
    Regardless it is doing booming business on the PS4.

    I dont know why that would matter but whatever makes you happy and justified.

    regardless 2,000 players on steam a month out on the biggest hype ever is low, no matter what steam game you want to compare it to

    3,400 at the moment.

    I am going to the game and seeing how many people are in it right now, this second in steam. it was 2,000 and something about 30 mins ago.

    right now this second NMS has 500 more players then Kerbal. Kerbal, a game that is CONISDERABLY older then NMS and had CONSIDERABLY less hype behind it.

    those two factors matter.

    you seriously want to debate this? you are just itching for me to find some game like 'Intensive Exposure' to have more active players in NMS while you pretend like hype levels do not factor into this.

    ok well here I go, I will find you some data.

    It's the 8th most bought game in the Uk last weeks, the game is doing fine and being worked on. 
    He's not talking about how many copies were sold, but how many were playing it right now since there is kinda no buzz about the game anymore.

    Another way to look at the numbers is that NMS has 17.1M hours played since launch. E:D has 3.6M averaging out to about 148k hours per month since launch. If NMS never got another hour played and E:D played at their average (which they are nowhere close to now) it would take them 91 months or nearly 8 years to catch up with the time invested in NMS.

    phase 1 of data collection.

    At this time on steam here are currentl player numbers:

    Farming Simulator 15      players 6,292
    EuroTruck Simulator 2     players 14,255
    Kerbal Space Program    players 2,988
    Space Engineers            players 3,558 
    Elite Dagerous                players 5,777
    Rim World                       players 6,913
    No Mans Sky                   players 3,464 
    H1Z1                               players 2,584

    keep in mind all these games are far older than 1 month old and all got about 1/8th as much marketing hype behind them and those two points DO matter
