Not sure if this has been done before, but I think the forum could do with a thread that lists online articles that DON'T criticize NMS. There are some journalists out there that do enjoy the game, so I'm hoping to get their articles listed here so that the game's fans can find them without having to wade through articles filled with snark.
Aye, I can relate to all of what he wrote in that article. After nearly 90 hours of slow and meditative immersive gameplay, I am only in my 5th System hunting down a creature collection, with a full slot multi-tool, 75% suit and 50% capacity ship and am enjoying every single session.
Here's one I just found. It's a bit wishy-washy for my tastes. For example, he claims that "true multiplayer" was "promised" (erm... no, it wasn't - at least, not unless by "promised" he means "denied many times").
