Neverwinter was really nice. Felt a little too “on rails” until I turned off the sparkly trail that tells you exactly where to go all the time.
Lately, I’ve been playing No Man’s Sky again since the big update. Man, what a giant time suck. The original release, I got maybe 20 hours in before I got bored and stopped playing… it just wasn’t geared towards my playing style which exposed the repetition way too much.
This version, I’m 85 hours in and still looking forward to going back. There are still a few near-rage-quit level glitches and I still play it and just learned to avoid the traps. I’m to the point where I have my own freighter/space base, bases on like a 20 planets, etc… my little fleet of capital ships has 4 frigates that I routinely send out on missions to earn me credits and ‘treasure’. I even have all of the land vehicles now.
…and whenever I get bored with the system I’m in, I push the main quest along a little farther or just jump to a new system to setup new bases there.
It’s really nice what the extra content did to this game. (I’ve also taken about 100 pictures in photo mode.)
