It's not really a game, just a simulator, but a good one, for sure.
Okay, first off, I'm old. When I was in my 20's and 30's I could learn programming languages, but that was long time ago. Learned COBOL on punch card machines in the 70's. Loved UNIX, before Linux came around. Loved Linux too. Today, I can't learn LUA, html, etc. It's just too hard for old people to learn. I also can't learn the RDMS system, nor the voxelmancy system. I've tried. God I've tried. It's just too hard. About as intuitive as brain surgery, which I can't learn either.
I've been playing since first day of open beta. Things I enjoy most are designing and building my own ships, then flying them manually. Don't need no fancy hud. Definitely don't want auto launch, auto land, auto flight, auto hover, auto anything. The default hud from the hover chair is good enough for me. That fancy dementia HUD the fonts are way too small to see anything anyways.
Instead of making the game easier, it seems they keep making it harder. I make alot of ships, and share them with my corp and friends. Now I can't even do that anymore. They disabled sharing, something about setting a policy in RDMS. Jesus Christ, just let me share my stuff again. Let me worry about the friends I choose, that's my problem, not yours. At least I can control that much.
Not having any fun. It would be nice to head out and explore something. Anything. Asteroid belts. Remote solar systems. Been to all the existing planets. They're all pretty much deserted now. Lots of graveyards, bases and ships with nobody there. Kinda creepy. Dead. Nothing to do. All the good stuff mined out. Ghost town.
The only excitement left is hanging out at a market, and watching the idiots come crashing in, because they're too lazy to learn how to fly manually. They use auto scripts, then cry when their ship crashes. Watching burning ships gets old too after a while.
It's a shame they aren't going to add PVE. Then you could actually call it a game. For now, it's just a really cool simulator that multiple people can share. But it's still too hard.
