The problem is, being a PC exclusive game, it's quite disappointing that it's not actually taking advantage of the hardware to actually innovate and make a new type of game.
This game isn't some new breed of game or some crazy new idea that can only be done on very high end PCs. This game very well could be done on any next gen console or mid-range PCs right now, it just won't be as pretty.
Gaming is going to get stale very quickly, it's already going that way. Developers were saying that they needed new hardware (new consoles) to innovate and bring us new gaming experiences, yet what do we have? Another Infamous? Another Uncharted? Halo 5? All they are doing is beefing up the graphics and keeping the same stale, done to death gameplay, and Start Citizen is no different.
The game is going to look gorgeous, no doubt. However, it's very disappointing that they aren't using the hardware to actually innovate or bring anything new, they are just using it so you can have an excuse to buy a new video card. Which is fine, there's nothing wrong with that necessarily, it'll probably be a fun game if you haven't played a thousand space sims before. It's just...meh, just ranting at this point.
