I doubt that was called for.
Witcher "3", Dark souls "3" and bloodborne (which in truth is a dark souls reimagination) are nowheee near as original in overall concept to No Mans Sky.
I have two of those three games mind you, doesn't mean I can't still at least admit that No Mans Sky as at the very least more original than them. I didn't say better, I said original.
And originality is good for the industry, unless ur ok with playing COD 20 every year.
I agree the video was definitely uncalled for. As to NMS, I alway look at originality with execution. From what I am hearing from a bunch of friends who have played a good deal of time with the game, it need to go back into the oven especially on the PC side.
Personally I believe developers and publishers do not mind doing original things, but in a hits market like games, at 60 dollar a pop, gamers are not that adventurous to spend on original games unless the hype overweights execution. NMS was a very ambitious project, especially for such a small dev team but no matter what your circumstances are, you still have to deliver on your product. Right now, it seems a lot more time is still needed to get the game to the expectations set for consumers.
