how did games exist before the ability to "patch" them? LOL...

Under the pressure of knowing that there were no fixes post-launch, devs tended to actually polish games before release properly.

Not knocking NMS for trying to make their game better, they've made an amazing comeback, but the option of fixing stuff later made some devs lazy *cough* Fallout 76 *cough* Anthem.

The complexity of games has increased tremendously. Hence, there are more bugs.

Games this complicated sure couldn’t. :) If they couldn’t patch - games NMS would be a completely different game now.

Remember all the different versions of Streetfighter 2 on consoles that people bought repeatedly full price? NMS has had at least 4 free updates that were more substantive than most of those updates.. Being able to patch things is definitely good. (Increased complexity means more things need rebalancing etc.. even things that are almost spot on, eg bloodborne, need loads of tweaks.)
