If CIG and Roberts deliver at least 80% of what they promise in Star Citizen, it would be the game of all games.  Itís fun now as a buggy alpha, but feels like itís just scratching the surface of what it could be.

Hasn't that been in development for, like, a decade now? And wasn't it excessively funded? WTF happened?

It's still going, like DCS, a constant work in progress.  At buggy Alpha state, it's still better than all space sims.  So just imagine how it'll be when they get to 70% completion.  Like DCS, the reality is, it'll never be done, they'll just keep adding new stuff forever.

It's a ridiculously ambitious project.  Punters loved the vision that the devs were pushing (and who wouldn't?) and so threw money at them.  Unfortunately masses of money does not necessarily equal ability to turn visions into playable games.  Yet they've said that given the dosh they will produce this behemoth, so I guess they've got to keep trying.

Obvs. that's just my opinion.
