Not to sound like a fanboy or anything, but the current game now makes the original trailer look like a 360 game from 2005. I think the biggest difference is with Star Citizen it's all out in the open and the public is seeing how the sausage is made. The rumors with Destiny is that it took 10 or so years to come to fruition after multiple scrappings and revamps. Also think about Overwatch and how that was originally going to be the new Blizzard MMO.
I was worried about the game and whether or not it would even amount to anything, however in this past year it has improved by leaps and bounds and you can start to see what they're going for. It kinda makes sense after you read that article now too, since they have all of these ex-Crytek devs now working on the engine for them.
