I've got about 80 hours in to it...so I guess that means I like it. Generally, I follow the story quests. It is a grinder however. Reminds me of a more sedate MMORPG...

So I would not be really happy about restarting and having to redo the quests...but I would say the same thing about Skyrim or Fallout 4.

I still haven't plumbed all of the play features in NMS either. I still don't have a merchant ship to act as my base for example.

But I can see that NMS would not be to some folk's taste. Particularly if you like combat. While you can definately get into fights in NMS, it is not really required. For the most part, combat can be avoided.

Wow! 80 hours in and you don't have a capital ship or fleet yet!?! That was one of the first things I did after that update hit and building my little fleet up has probably been the most fun I've had in the game so far. Now, that being said, I don't really have a base on any planet and I have not constructed any ground vehicles...lol

Anyone playing this actively?
I finally picked it up for a mere 10 dollah as what Ive been reading looks like the game has improved quite a bit and for only a tenner Id be willing to take a look with my own eyes.
I understand the latest patch even added a whole underwater world!

It is half off @ Green Man Gaming right now which puts it around 30$. I got it during their summer sale for around 24.
