Stick and Rudder: How dare you spend money on Star Citizen

Massively: "When I say that some people don't get Star Citizen, I don't mean that in a literal sense. Obviously anyone with half a brain can see that it's a hardcore space sim with a heaping helping of multiplayer sandbox stuff and bleeding edge aesthetics.

No, what some people don't get is why this is so appealing to Star Citizen's 200,000-odd backers. Every time I pen a Star Citizen news post or column here on Massively, I get emails and comments about how the product is vaporware or how it will come out when the real world date matches that of the game's fiction (the 30th century, if you're wondering) or how dare I spend money on a game that doesn't exist. The trolls really come out in force when it's a post or a column about Star Citizen's pre-order ship offerings, its business model, or its record-breaking crowdfunding run." (PC, Star Citizen)

This game is gonna be a beast, can't wait for the hangar module next month followed by the combat alpha later this year. And I don't think I've ran into a single person who wasn't excited about this game once they saw the kickstarter video.
