What is Star Citizen?

I was really impressed to come across a comment from a fellow citizen who’s thoughtful response to negative comments in a public forum managed to turn the situation completely around. It sums up how I feel about Star Citizen perfectly. From the subsequent comments it also managed to encourage not one, not two, but three people within that thread to get in and give it a go!
Kudos to you Allan Lewis.

“What attracts people to Star Citizen?”

“… that’s a tough one to describe, it’s a lot of different things to a lot of different people. Personally for me, I believe it will become the game I’ve dreamed of since I was a kid watching Star Wars and Star Trek, Stargate and Farscape, Firefly and Battlestar Galactica. A living breathing universe that you are free to make your own way in, not just as a ship or just on foot, but as yourself or whoever you want to be. Star Wars Galaxies but with more depth and freedom, EvE but standing on the bridge of your ship and knowing the skills of your crew is what determines the outcome, not a role of the dice.

Many believe it will be the game that let’s us be our heroes. Picard exploring the uncharted frontier, Malcolm Reynolds barely scrapping by in the grey area of the law, Adama commanding a capital class warship on the front lines of war. Some of us want the smaller jobs, one foot soldier among many earning fame on the ground, being known as the engineer who can keep a ship running with a dozen bullet holes through the engine, the medic who is always in the right place at the right time.
Others want to be titans of industry, cracking giant asteroids in a 400m long mining ship with a massive laser mounted through the spine. Building outposts on far flung worlds, selling exotic goods to travellers met all across the ‘Verse, or even running their own trading empire spanning multiple systems.
It’s a game that has something for everyone, it’s a game that breaks the yearly repeat mold and dares to go deeper and farther than any other.
A lot of people like it simply for the openness, being able to watch the dev videos every week and talk to them on the forums. Seeing this game grow month after month into the dream we all share.
And for some it’s just a game that has cool detailed ships, lasers that pew, and gats that bring the dakka.
Everyone has their own view, but we all share a similar vision, it’s up to you to decide if you want to be a part of it.”
