    If it helps, I bought subnatica recently, and im someone who is more drawn to the base building, creative side of the game, rather than the survival and exploration aspects. The game has lots of content and pretty frequent major updates, but once I had explored most of the map and unlocked all the blueprints, I kind of lost interest in the game.

    Thats not to say its a bad game, it just wasnt for me I guess

    Also one tip if you do buy the game: dont look up any tips/locations/guides online, it was something that I had heard prior to buying the game, and I wish I had listened. Hard to resist it may be, but for me at least, this took the fun out more than anything, and I wish I had just spent more time figuring stuff out myself.

    hope this helps somewhat :)

    Subnautica is pretty cool in some aspects, and quite a bit backwards in others. It mainly depends whether you're interested in ocean exploration. As someone who's always liked marine biology, Subnautica is pretty lit. Though if you don't I think there are probably more directly rewarding survival games out there.
