Everyone knows the legendary story of how Atari Inc. buried millions of unsold games in the New Mexico desert.

I have a feeling that the next game to find a burial somewhere (land or sea) is going to be No Man’s Sky. It certainly is experiencing a digital burial with all of the refunds that Steam is having to issue.

This was sent to me by a friend:

I had been excited about No Man’s Sky, an indie made video game for PS4/PC that was offering up plenty of promises in the run up to release. Admittedly, I was letting myself buy into the hype although I did avoid buying the game until I saw how everything would fallout.

And fallout it did. (this was taken a few days ago when the game reached “Mostly Negative” status on Steam)

Granted, it has become cool to hate the game at this point but that is the fault of the developers who suffered from inflated ego syndrome and a media eager to create a clickbait hero. Various developers have learned why you should be honest in marketing your game but not enough. At this point, No Man’s Sky will take the crown for most disappointing game of the year and will certainly be in the running for the decade.
