No Man's Sky has been in development for five years now and it finally released on PS4 today. Fans have been hyping this game up to extreme levels, it's hard to imagine the game could have lived up to the hype fans built up for it. Sean Murray himself even said the game may not be what you imagined and will be very "divisive". At 11 PM EST last night, first reactions from fans hit social media and most of the initial reactions are… "mixed".
Many are labeling the game as boring, repetitive, but some can't shake the idea that the game is unique and could possibly be good if you invest enough time into it. Some are worrying however that this is the entire game and that all of their hope for this game has been squashed.
#NoMansSky is so boring

No Mans Sky looks like a super boring game. Might be cool to play for a week tops. Idk why everyone hyped the crap out of this game….

No mans sky looks extremely beautiful and extremely boring, like a space minecraft but without the super creative building or multiplayer

Say what you will about #NoMansSky but you can't deny its incredible what such a small group has been able to create.

#NoMansSky is everything I expected it will be. I planned on being an explorer and I've naturally just kind of became a trader.
