Whenever I support a game that "looks" interesting, I go in with the idea that it may fail and the money will be a wirte-off. I am into Star Citizen for about $90 total. I feel sorry for the people who have spent hundreds or thousands of dollars, but no one twisted their are. The knew what they were doing or they should have. My concern about Star Citizen is that after 5+ years in development, the graphics are starting to look a little dated. They chose to go with the prior Cryengine version rather than the latest version at that time because it was more stable. The trouble is that now they are stuck with the old engine and things have moved on. I will be sad if SC is not released and I will be if it performs poorly or looks dated. But, as I said, I always considered it a gamble as I do with all the games I support Kickstarter games because they are game that I would like to see built. I hope they will be successful but I realize that some of them are just money down the drain. I was an early supporter of Elite Dangerous. In fact it was the announcement by Chris Roberts of the ED Kickstarter that caused me to go and look at it. Just Like I remember the Wing Commander and Privateer series, I remember Elite, Elite II and Elite III. People say all kinds of stuff pro and con about ED, but for my money, ED turned out great and Frontier is improving it all the time.
