      I don’t think it’s about business.

      I think it’s about making games.

      As such, I think I might just forgive Hello Games… which involves buying their *NEXT* game.Report

        _You_ might.

        The people who demanded refunds, and everyone else who read how it fell short of expectations, however, are not, especially as it’s unlikely they’ll never even know the game had all that stuff put in later.

        That is a hell of a way to run a business.Report

          When I wrote this post this morning, I looked at No Man’s Sky on Steam and saw that it had Recent Reviews as “Mixed”.

          Now? Recent Reviews are “Mostly Positive”.

          The subreddit devoted to the game is actually falling over itself in praise (and this is after it was pretty hip deep in the whole “#neverpreorder” thing).

          While I would agree that the version of the game that they have today is the version of the game that probably should have shipped in the first place (to the chorus of “WHERE ARE THE SANDWORMS WE WERE PROMISED!?!?!?”), the fact that they finally shipped the version of the game that they probably should have shipped in the first place is a good thing for the people who wanted the version of the game that they probably should have shipped in the first place.

          That ain’t nothin’.Report
