Amen to that.I really don't think NMS/HG gets anywhere near enough credit.
What the launch proved for me wasn't that Sean Murray lied (he didn't - everything he said you'd be able to do you can do, and more), it was just how spoiled brat-ish the gaming community really is. Sean Murray is a bona-fide genius, we are lucky to have him in the game development world, and he's also a lovely guy who really doesn't deserve all the hate from people who don't understand that game development is a process.
I really liked the game at release - and it's even better now. I just turn the multiplayer off.
