I remember the first time I heard about the Far Cry series. I was in an Xbox Live party with a friend and he started laughing like there was no tomorrow. For ages he was just howling to himself. When he eventually composed himself he was like “Brooooo, You need to play this game” and of course I’m like “What Game?” and he says “Far Cry 2 man, you can do some crazy stuff. I just ran over Zebra! HAHAH! I just did it again.” I’m not ashamed to say, I wanted to run over some Zebra so when Far Cry 3 was released I jumped all over that game so that I could get the chance to explore the vast realm that came with it.
No Man’s Sky is an exploration game like no other. We have heard of open world games, but this is open universe. In this endless galaxy, you get to travel around the universe exploring never before seen planets. Due to the games complex algorithms, there are over 18 quintillion possible planets to explore. In your quest to reach the centre of the galaxy you encounter various different alien species throughout. Some of these species will be friends and others will be foes, you have to be vigilant at all times.
