*Editor’s Note: The video above includes spoilers for No Man’s Sky.
When it finally launched two weeks ago, Hello Games’ No Man’s Sky didn’t quite reach everyone’s expectations. While our own Edwin Garcia (and a portion of the gaming community) was mesmerized by the title’s intergalactic gameplay, there is another camp of people who hated it. Though harsh (as it usually is because that is kind of the point of the series), Smosh Games’ latest Honest Game Trailer is a pretty good representation of why the latter party doesn’t like it. Also, as per usual, it’s hilarious. Check out the video above to see what we mean.
The video highlights the gripes many players have had since touching the game, including: pointless exploration, absence of promised multiplayer, boring gameplay, and lack of variety in terms of planet layout. The missing content in particular is the factor that’s really been influencing opinions of the game. Our favorite part, however, was the hilarious “starring: buyers remorse” bit at the end of the video, because it’s something a lot of people have been feeling. But is it enough reason to stay away?
There are several patches on the way, but it’s hard to say whether bug fixes or potential DLC will change disgruntled player’s minds about it–unless of course it’s a Rick and Morty sound pack, which we’re all for. Considering there are many who’ll agree that the time-consuming exploration is a great way to unwind, and that multiplayer isn’t needed, it all boils down to player preference at the end of the day.
