Proteus: Should you buy it?
Read all of this before you make a comment, please!
THIS GAME IS SIGNIFICANTLY DIFFERENT FROM ANY OTHER GAME YOU HAVE EVER PLAYED. I am going to get that out there now. This is why there is such a mixed reaction, because people go in to the game expecting one thing and get suprised, be it pleasently or not. The game has no defined goal, no skills, none of that stuff you will find in any other game that is even similar. So, if you have not bought it yet keep it in mind in deciding if you want to buy the game.
This game is meant for people who like large, open world games, but they would be content simply wandering around it doing nothing other than looking at how pretty the scenery is. Take Minecraft for example. If you have found yourself wandering aimlessly looking at the sunset, then Proteus is for you. Also, if you like the music in Minecraft, and that pretty sunset was so much nicer with a song playing in the background, buy Proteus right now. This is basically all that Proteus is. You look around, chase animals, watch the sun set, and listen to music.
This game is ABSOLUTELY not meant for anyone who likes games were you shoot anything. If you play games like CoD or GTA all the time, whatever you do DONT BUY PROTEUS. ALSO, if you play Minecraft TO BUILD AND SURVIVE BE CAUTIOUS IN BUYING PROTEUS. You probably won't like it, so check online play throughs of Proteus before you buy. In fact, that goes for anyone who wants to buy Proteus. Check the interwebs first!
Anyone that thinks this is a waste of money clearly dove into the game without thinking! Ignore them, figure out if you want the game with this information and the Internet! ITS FAR FROM SIMILAR TO ANY OTHER GAME.
