No Man’s Sky has always been a good idea. Exploring a vast universe and discovering the unknown was a good enough hook that hundreds of thousands of people gave it a try. Now the game has graduated from a good idea to an actual good game. It’s not just that there’s more content and more things to do. The game has been re-tooled, from the user interfaces to the dogfighting to working Portals, in order to improve players’ ability to discover interesting things, and allow them to actually feel a part of the worlds they inhabit. If you haven’t played since launch, pick it back up. If you were turned off by bad reviews, it’s time to give it a try.
