What are some games that will make me feel the vastness of space?
Hard Mode: Must have actual gameplay -- No Universe Sandbox or Space Engine.
Master Ninja: No Kerbal Space Program
well freespace will make you feel the vastness of the enemy capital ship bearing down on your tiny fighter, and since the capital ship has to fit into space, that also needs to be vast
hope that helps
Gal Civ II on largest possible map with only a few AI opponents.
No Man's Sky will probably be like this when it releases.
Also Pulsar: Lost Colony, but it's in early access and requires a team to work together to crew the ship, so you need friends.
does space engineers have any goals at this point? are there enemies or something?
Seriously, when you encounter truly massive ships and get involved in humongous battles raging across vast star systems, you will understand what a tiny pissant you truly are in the massive universe.
OK, elite dangerous and EVE look pretty damn interesting. especially new horizons.
Are there any games like this in single player?
I'm going to go with New Horizons, and I'm watching gameplay of Noctis IV right now to see if it's up my alley. Thanks for the help!
I just started playing E:D after not touching it for a year and a half.
It makes me feel insignificant
That looks amazing. And it will probably run well on my 7870 as well.
