    I'm extremely happy that Braben didn't follow that trail, Braben has a vision on where to go with ED but he didn't turn every aspect into an alpha demo and try to knit them together.
    ED 1.0 was a full game to play but only the beginning, this full game only gets bigger and better, love it.

    Ugh I can't wait for Q1 next year, Krait, Chieftain, new planet textures and then some!!!!!
    Best purchase I ever made in my gaming life.

    Been playing since GPP on Xbox, and it's far and away my most played game of all time. Despite its faults, i truly do love it.

    Can't wait to see what the future has in store. Something for us explorers to do out in the black besides go mad, pretty please? Even just an additional type of scanner or something could go a long way (atmospheric analysis, gamma/x-ray emissions,...something lol!)

    Yup....I've always loved the Elite franchise....always will.

    I'm hoping Beyond will deliver what is required to turn this from a good game to a great one.

    I'm happy.
    It's a hard job, but somebody's got to do it.

    ED is my retreat from this world... there's just no other game like it. Thank you for this positive thread... I'm usually a lurker and this is getting heavy all these complaints.

    I also have hopes and dreams for what ED could be, but let's just be patient and enjoy it for all it already is... which is honestly a lot! I personally don't mind most of its lore being out of the game, not all games are the same and this makes it even more immersive to me, that the ED universe 'leaks' into my own world with tons of fanmade websites... even a radio! This is all insanely cool!

    Playing with the HOTAS + the Oculus is just... mindblowing. Next on the list are a tablet for the Roccat powergrid or the Cougar cockpit panel! My interest keeps growing, I just got into the books now, read 'The Dark Wheel' and I'm impatient to read more! I'm rambling, but... I love Elite.


    Cheers CMDRs, keep being the greatest gaming community I've been in. o7

    All great posts so far, even the foodie bits lol.

    Just try and explain this game in a few sentences to someone in the pub to understand the complexity.

    The complexity is what makes the game, the very steep learning curve you have to endure to learn how to fly a space ship in our massive Milky Way. The hours you have to put in to learn how to fight your ship and to spec both it and the modules

    The truly awesome visuals that you get to see that are mostly matched with our knowledge of the galaxy.

    The constant improvements that are made.

    I believe that we are in a long-term beta project that is nowhere near the finished article yet so this is truly a great thread to focus on all of the great aspects of Elite Dangerous. Of which I have only touched on a few.

    Simply love the game. I have VR and recently got myself a 2k monitor and it is an absolutely fantastic experience. Mining is probably my fav thing in the game.

    Well, even I had my share off "not that happy with 2.4...", its like i said there too: "...but i still love this game!" and will probaly do so till they shut down the servers
    I mean when ingame time is counted in weeks it says something i guess

    Well I guess I realized how much I love this game after damaging my hand and nearly losing a finger last week. XBox controller is a bit awkward to use one handed. LOL.
    It was a retreat for me from my daily hectic life.
    Since then I have learned to dock again but I think it may be time to do a bit of exploring or buy a T9 since it moves slow enough.
    Played in 84 and I'm glad to be playing the game now.

    Ouch! I hope your recovery is swift!

    I somehow missed this game back in 1984, having had a voracious appetite for games back then. I didn't really slow down until I became a father in 2006.

    Elite is just such an amazing world. Yes, sometimes things are odd (like how our nav computers can't automatically slow down for a drop out of supercruise) but the scope and scale of the game is just mind-boggling.

    The visceral feel of combat, the hands-on approach to landings and take offs, everything just immerses you into the game.
