Sean Davies of PSGamer explains how his 5 year old son helped him recognise how important No Man's Sky really is.
There have been a lot of games where you can reach anything, go anywhere you see on screen. This isn't a No Man's Sky innovation.
Thank you. I don't understand why people think this game is so unique. Starbound, Space Engineers, Proteus, Spore, Evochron .
Starbound is mentioned in the article. Proteus was procedurally generated but you couldn't go "anywhere". You couldn't go to any of the stars. Yo couldn't go under the sea. No Man's Sky is the first really main stream example of a "go anywhere" game.
Cant speak for the others but in Evochron you cannot explore the planets like in No Mans Sky, you can dock with a city only. In No Mans you can get out of your ship and explore the whole planet you have just landed on big difference between the 2 games.
It's not just about going anywhere. No Man's Sky is about making us live an old kid's fantasy of exploring the Universe. It's not about space marines or politics of aliens alliances... Just going were no man has gone before. A lot of games came close before, but when I watch No Man's Sky trailers, I feel like I'm 10 years old again.
1. I felt the same way when I saw the trailers. 2. Why is your avatar the dude and not Walter? http://jadebate.files.wordp...
I understand in this day and era why it is so easy to be cynical and if it wasn't for the interview with the developer talking about the game I would be there with you. But the enthusiasm from the developer and the things they are talking about delivering isn't about being innovative but completely realize a dream that we all have as kids and adults. The dream of exploration. The dream of being the first person to find something and share that unique experience with our friends. It is clear from the developer interviews that they honestly believe they are able to deliver on this true unfiltered experience. I don't know if they can do it or not, but I am hoping for once that they can deliver something we all want.
Mercenaries for the PS2 and xbox is the only game I can think of. For pretty much every so called open world game, the gamer is tasked with completing a certain amount of missions to advance to the next area. Skyrim along with the newer fallout games do have skyboxes and certain limitations. I need to play the older elder scroll games and fallout games to see how open those games are.
Way too much hype for this game. Let's see if it can deliver.
Fingers crossed it does, sounds good on paper and from the limited Demos we have been shown. Will be watching this to see if it lives up to the hype.
I still cannot believe that this is an indie title. Can't wait to play this with my friends :)
why are people hyping this so much?
Have you not heard good things about this game? From what I have been hearing, this game is going to own. Especially for an Indie title.
im guessing the haters are all star citizen contributors.
Is an indie title that is getting as much hype as any mainstream game with the resurrection of be able to go anywhere from land to space, to be able to explore different planets with say planets having its own lifeforms, flora, fauna and weather and no loading screens anywhere when the gamer is doing all of these activities. It has a dark souls type of multiplayer. It pretty much puts every mainstream game to shame. The closest game released not in alpha a.k.a. early access is Mercenaries for the PS2, Xbox, probably on GameCube. It was a military third person shooter that allowed the gamer to go anywhere and I do mean anywhere none of that bullshit of complete certain missions before going to the next area, it did have loading times but I highly recommend this classic of a game. Is also similar to Minecraft the PC version but this game does have skyboxes and very few area restrictions
Most important game release of the decade... Don't get me wrong, I'm excited for No Mans Sky, but it's not even the most important game release of the year, don't over exaggerate.
Over-exaggerate is not a word. You can't exaggerate an exaggeration.
do you feel better now?
Stop over exaggerating the meanings behind word(s) :D When I used that term sometimes, what I'm saying is stop exaggerating in a way that is overkill/overboard to what is needed to convey the message. You're right though, so +1 point for you. It's not cool to be a grammar police on the internet though, so -1 point for you. So no harm done. Carry on please!
How about Elite? Or Trade Wars?
It's all about perspective! If anyone catches my drift. For a console this will be a big deal, simply because it hasn't been done on a level like this before.
I think the game looks fantastic but hyped much, seriously give the guys a chance, go play some games and stopping putting out articles like this, "Best game ever!!" It's weeks months away yet, I'm all for a preview but seriously give them a chance to get some of the game in public first.
I can't see this game as being the most important of the decade. Bringing something to consoles that hasn't really been done yet, sure. But it is nothing new to gaming in general.
Don't Jink this!
Careful... Have we not learned what happens when we appoint gaming messiahs? The game may look fun and it may even be a great game, but we have OURSELVES to blame when we expect too much and eat into sensationalist journalism. It was neither the fault of Titanfall nor Watch Dogs that the games themselves were slightly above average, it was the consumer for placing WAY too much expectation in something that clearly was going to just be an alright fun game. When you appoint gaming messiahs, you'll often see the smoke and mirrors behind their seemingly astounding miracles.
Why have I got the feels that folks will be disappointed with this title with such high expectations?
Yeah ok, no pressure at all. Let's at least keep the hype train at a reasonable level. These guys sure are talented though, for what they have shown so far I hope the game is worth it when released.
If people are excited for a game too much, they would normally force themselves to like it. All that has changed now, look at Watch_Dogs, that game even got great reviews and most Gamer's disappointment mixed with their narcissism so in their eyes, the Critics were wrong.
Lol I was going to post a comment like that. I hope the people making the game don't get some kind of condition from all this pressure.
Come on guys.....we should all know better. Intresting opinion piece. Im gonna be enjoying this game like everyone else. Just the notion of it being heralded as The Most important game of Decade is crazy. Im sorry!
Console wise yes, and i can't wait!
Super stoked for this game, -my fave E3 reveal.
I've said it before but from what I've seen "No Man's Sky" won't just be game of the decade, but game of the generation. As a sci-fi game it ticks all my most wanted and dreamed about check boxes; "Destiny" doesn't even come close to the promise of "No Man's Sky."
Seems like people are exaggerating quite a bit with this game.
Tell me about it...
Damn it, I need to stop reading no man's sky articles. It just making it difficult to wait for this amazing concept..... Also check out Among the Sleep is a really good game, short , on the easy side, but sweet.
