The hype train that is No Man’s Sky is at full bore right about now and there have been all kinds of details released in various ways in the last few months. It’s a very ambitious title to say the least. The idea of exploring an actual, full size, universe is pretty amazing. But just like anything as ambitious as this project, this game has had its fair share of criticism as well.

One of the biggest criticisms is this: What the heck are we going to do? A game this large is bound to have some pretty bland sections of the game. Maybe even more then some. So is it going to be one of those cases where after the initial “oohs” and “aahs” wear off it gets pretty boring?

Part of me is a little worried about that scenario. As impressed as I am with this game, I’m a little worried that it’s going to get pretty boring after a while and I know other people share this sentiment. So that got to thinking if it’s still worth a purchase. In defense of No Man’s Sky, I did some research and came up with 10 reasons I think this game will be worth it. I’m sure there are other reasons this game will be awesome but this is a good start.

1. Mining/crafting

This is a survival/sandbox game. I’m sure you all know what those are thanks to Minecraft and the countless other similar games on the market. You’ll do a lot of resource collecting and crafting. Which can be seen in action below.
