@subscryber: what you're describing is finding out that a game isn't for you, not that it's bad. It's OK. At least you can move on now. As far as I am concerned this is exactly what I expected it to be and what I wanted to play. It's not an exciting game, and that's a quality I like.
Just my opinion. I'm perfectly aware that it's okay that this game likely isn't for me. Doesn't mean it's above criticism, or that my opinion isn't objective in some way because it's not for me. It might very well be not for me simply because it's not good. I don't love survival games, but I think Don't Starve is a great game on an objective level. I would actually be perfectly content with this kind of "experience" game if it were $15 or $20. They're billing it as more, and that's why I believe it's more than fair to criticize the shallowness of the gameplay experience.
