    Other than a brief and miserable half hour trial recently, I have not played the game in...moths. At all. Not even once.

    -No cargo.

    Jumped back in to play a bit today, and...ugh. I just cant be bothered. Took me about 30 minutes to remember why I quit:

    The medium feels utterly stagnant. Triple A is stuck in their open world icon hoovering clone glut. Or it's Shooters. Because we need more of those.

    Meanwhile Indie can't get over its fascination...

    I got so lost in a cave recently, I had to reload my last save. These are not video game dungeon caves, with a half dozen contrived exits, or a neat path...
