    ED is the perfect game to sperg about realism because we all know it is so damn realistic with its flight model. :roll:

    Last DLC utterly killed the game anyway.

    Every time I think ED has reached the lowest available decline, Braben and K somehow find a way to fail even worse.

    I have the feeling they want people to drop the game so they can save on server hosting costs. They made a game that requires a permanent online component with no way to generate new money from it except decals which only the fattest of whales would buy.

    Braben has his own built with the gameplay from the 8bit Elite that is actually fun. He just hates people who play his games.

    Just imagine how fun it would be to buy machinery and computers on an industrial planet and sell them on another that is backwards for a small but significant profit, be able to slip through a gauntlet of space pirates that do not see your every move from lightyears away and send you chat messages, and speculate with some Platinum along the way.

    See there's their problem. Star Citizen didn't do that that's why its more successful.

    Nope. But videogames, like most media, can be both educational and a vehicle for the expression and consumption of art. Despite what grognards say.

    Btw, What Remains of Edith Finch has a better story than 90% of recent books and movies I've seen. As does SOMA.

    Yes, and that says a lot about recent books and movies.

    Exactly my thoughts. Fuck "recent" books and movies and What Remains of Edith Flinch.

    Go to a library and get some decent books, they are not just there for homeless people.
