No Man's Sky is definitely different, I wasn't too sure about it at first but now I'm hooked. It's very much an open world game, the main story isn't that noticeable and the game really allows you to go at your own pace, following the main storyline only when you want to. Once you grasp the basic game mechanics it's a lot of fun, esp. if you enjoy exploring on your own, resource gathering, and base building.I tried that out and got off the first planet, then literally never went back to it. I suppose I might check it out later, but it just felt...empty and without a real story. And the mechanics alone didn't grab me.
