    there was a thread a couple of weeks ago with excitement for the game. This yahoo news article was a surprise. Is it that bad?

    'No Man's Sky' Refunds: Steam, Sony, Amazon Offer Refund To Players, No Matter How Long Game Was Played
    If you haven’t been satisfied with your No Man’s Sky experience, now might be the perfect time to get a refund. If you bought the game on Amazon, Steam or the PSN network, you should be able to ask for a refund, regardless of how long you played the game for. This is great news for the countless number of fans who thought they were getting an epic space opera, only to end up with Minecraft with spaceships.

    Players on reddit have been successful getting a refund on Steam, even though Valve usually only allows refunds if you’ve played the game for under two hours. Fans who bought the game on the PSN who put upwards of over 50 hours into the game, also claimed to be able to get a full refund from PlayStation customer support. The outcry from fans must have been too much, because these companies are usually very strict about their refund policies, Sony especially.

    To get a refund, just contact whichever provider’s customer support you bought the game from and how you truly felt about the game. These companies were trying to do this as quietly as possible and now that everyone and their mother is going to ask for a refund, they might stop giving them out.

    I never enjoyed No Man’s Sky myself, finding open world games with little to actually do very boring. My thoughts on the warp drive simulator were encapsulated perfectly by the internet’s own prophetic muse, VideoGameDunkey.


    If you haven’t enjoyed No Man’s Sky and felt that this wasn’t the game you were promised, get your money back. Show game developers that it’s not okay to make false promises like saying a game includes multiplayer when you literally can’t see another player on the same planet as you.

    Yes.

    There is very little actual game to it. It is bland. The graphics are not great, lots of pop ins and poor scaling.

    It would be a great alpha. It is a horrible finished game.

    The early trailers showed towering dinosaurs and promised an insane amount of flora and fauna to discover.

    We got slight variants and nothing mind blowing.

    The epic space battles are not there. There are no quests. The ending is nonexistent.

    I like this guy's reviews for their accuracy, he's entertaining too. There is some hot new girl next to him who is particularly hot.

    Based on this, I'll wait until it's heavily patched or it's in the bargain bin.

    Elite Dangerous is awesome if you want a space game. Star Citizen will be good if it ever goes gold.
