    It's the Space list for 2019/2020! I know many of you have been starved for single-player gameplay and there are many with that this year. EXTRA GAMES! Starpoint Gemini 3 and Starbase were announced. By the way, Outer Worlds and Stellar Tactics are not here. Tough one, but those fall more on the RPG side right now, plus 'Space Games' doesn't just mean games set in space. A sci-fi RPG is still an RPG. Also, question of the day, what do you think is the most important aspect of a space game? Meanwhile, you can check out more lists like this one here: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLYVqUDxY6COh7bkuJoBb1koNRX7mAX2yp AND I have a space gaming playlist here: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLYVqUDxY6COhWbKA82r41ZpTYWXQO8o76

    Funny crap about Starsector, it's about 90% done while the other EA titles in the video are generally speaking not even ready for a Beta candidate.

    I would love to find a game that has an industry side, player market, multiple sectors etc, like how EVE Online has it. In 3 years, I was a master of 0.0 capital construction, POS bases all over, I was in absolute control of the trade in 3 regions, even building up new trade hubs that turned a constellation into something that barely had 50 players in it, to something that regularly had 300 players in it. Tech2, research, BPCopying, faction item trade, as well as while I had multiple alts mining resources. Everything but wormhole stuff. I would love to find a game that is all of or almost all of that but is not EVE. It does not even have to be an online game, though I would prefer it.

    There was a time when they said nobody wanted space games. Then they realized when they actually asked people or was it when Kickstarter began. they realized yes people want this. then what happens is they bring out tons of games on space genre. and theres not many that are actually any good. then peopel get tired of the crap. and then game companys will say again peopel are not interested in sapce games anymore. and teh cycle goes on nobody learns anything

    Starsector is super good but it has hit a huge rut. The developer is an asshole banning people ALOT for voicing their opinion and updates comes at a sloths pace. Modding community is dying too….hate to say it but with the banning of players for voicing shitty updates and sloth like development has killed it before it can even get up. ITS FINE because I will buy the right to the game eventually and actually work on it

    SQ42 is not out in 2020 they have only announced a "Beta" meaning they have no confidence in it and don't want it being reviewed for consumers BEFORE they have to put down hard earned cash because some invested backer and MLM "ooh please use my referal code" type convinces you to try it.

    CIG have a 100% track record of under-delivery and missing dead-lines so I would put money on that not arriving next year. That game is supposed to be 'open' development but the vertical slices we've seen have not shown much game-play and release date information is always sparce because the 'open' material is all marketing, there is far more tangible information on all "closed" development games currently in production. Cyberpunk 2077 will wipe the floor with it in every respect, the developer has confidence in that game, hence it has a proper release date.

    They (CIG) have a road-map yes, but it says nothing and huge amounts of targets are simply swiped off to the right, it's just a carrot for the backer donkeys.They have no games under their belt and are focused on collecting pre-order cash and calling it 'crowd funding' for almost a decade.
    They say a fool and his money are easily parted. Wait for the reviews. Let's see them do a single damn thing that stands up on it's own merits. Don't give your credit card details to carnival folk.

    So, we dont have any space MMO, only EVE Online?
    Star Trek Online – graphic like from 1990…
    Elite Dangerous – grind and grind with maximum 32 people in one instance.
    Star Citizen – when?…..
    any more?…

    The only upcoming space games pushing the boundaries are Starcitizen and Dual Universe, where they are going for REALTIME MMO in space and a one shard universe. Starcitizen looks better than everything, while Dual Universe shows of what a full voxel based game can look like.

    should make a game like warframe, 4 player coop, hubs with lots of people, but in ships ofc, and yeah skins to buy so they make money. 3 mode's pvp small 5v5 space combat on a smallish map, medium 20v20 larg map, and big pvp 50v50 on a very big map you know with roids you can hide behind dust clouds to go in to , to stop sensors, different class ships to fly you know from a interceptor to a dreadnough. Give it a big star map to work around that would take along time to do. Give the pve side a story of ya know the old alien faction trying to take over the galaxy (The Morgus) so everyone has a common goal to get rid of this enemy.

    It's a great list, except for Starmade. That game has been in alpha now for over 5-6 years, and hasn't moved very far. Once upon a time, It was cool, but… Performance and stability is worse. The community has shrunk 90% and is in shambles. They have no roadmap, no plan, play favorites, and argue with the community more than they listen. It is toxic. Stay. Away. Starmade has already failed and is dead, the devs just won't admit that killed it. Source: former player.

    Great video, there are plenty of those game that I didn't know.
    I've tried Nimbatus but it's blocks physics is a mess and the game itself isn't what I was searching for.
    I've got Space Engineers and it's a great game if you like space/planetary survival and building your land and space-crafts.
    These days I'm playing Avorion, it's quite more easy to progress and it's more alive.

    I regularly play Space games and I can tell you now, a year later from this video being published…Space Engineers (new economy update), Star Citizen, No Mans Sky, etc are all very much better games.

    Many of those games you mentioned that seem decent, i havent heard of. It may be due to not being on Steam, which is my biggest source of new games.. but videos like this are what make me look into and often buy new games. Very short but well done description of each game, going through 30 games in 26minutes is impressive! Ill go look to see if you've got an updated version of this game being almost Q4 of 2019 🙂
