To be fair, I think if Sea of Thieves lacked a true multiplayer component like No Man's Sky does, the comparison would be pretty close....minus the overwhelming hype I suppose. It's a game based on exploration with not much content to explore and not a lot of true goals. Very barebones right now. However, the multiplayer aspect is what makes it fun and why I am enjoying it. I don't think I'd have much fun playing solo. If No Man' Sky launched with a true multiplayer feature, I think it would've been a lot more fun and had a much warmer reception. Also, it's free/cheap with game pass, so there's an option of not having to pay the (frankly too expensive) buy-in price. I agree. Having a ton of fun. Went full pirate last night and hunted down other ships for treasure to some success. Even caught one guy who had a captain's chest and a shiny keg. Conveniently, he also had a barrel of gunpowder sitting on his deck that ate a cannonball. You sort of feel like a dick, but at the same time you're a pirate so..... I also spent about 20 minutes attempting to get the angle on the cannon just right to launch myself onto the ship on the rocks above Galleon's Grave....cuz reasons.
