"“The game gets good X hours in.” It’s a common argument that is thrown around in the video game community quite frequently. The variable itself fluctuates game to game, but many fans use this defense to counter negative feelings toward a game. An infamous mainstay of this argument is 2010’s Final Fantasy XIII and the claim that after 20-30 hours the game gets better. Through the years we have had other examples, but the latest game that seems to use this defense, albeit to a lesser degree than FFXIII, is Hello Games’ No Man’s Sky."
