I was mildly interested in NMS, despite having paid no attention to the hype. I saw a trailer recently and it seemed interesting, and it happened to be coming out soon. But it also seemed to be a 6 hour game. After 6 hours, you're just doing the same thing over and over, with no purpose or goal. A friend who bought it on PS4 loves it, but basically confirmed that suspicion.

Still, I watched a stream, and I wanted to try it. I wanted to see how varied the planets actually were. So I bought it for PC. It crashes on startup 100% of the time (which, I now see from checking online, is very, very common). So I got a refund. I'll wait six months, however long it takes to get discounted. This game isn't worth $60. I'm glad the crashes broke the spell so I could get out of the purchase.
