"A vastly ambitious developer bit off more than it could chew and found
itself pumped up by Sony, the media and the gaming public. When the
actual game underwhelmed, the sometimes toxic gaming community turned on
both Hello Game and Sean Murray, rightly pointing out several explicit
claims that the game did not deliver on, but doing so with the
harassment that all too often characterizes fan response."
Another classic illustration of the dangers of Internet global-scale
hype, much like the Segway. Both No Man's Sky and the Segway are fine
for what they are, but got massively overhyped resulting in massive
disappointment and bitterness.
