First game was ‘Pong’ back in the early/mid 70’s. Been gaming ever since.
Prefer sim type games, but also love art style in games too. That drew me into NMS from the outset. It takes me back to Saturday Matinee in the mid 60’s when I was a child growing up.
So even though NMS might not be a ‘sim’ as such, its a very rewarding game visually and indeed game-play wise too.
