      Space Engine vs TerraGenesis opinions
      pros, cons and recent comments
      Space Engine is a space visualizer. TerraGenesis is a game. While there is planetary exploration in TerraGenesis, I just think Space Engine shouldn't be the top result. It definitely should remain listed.

      pros, cons and recent comments
      EVE is primarily about doing things with your ship; mining, combat, missions. Where as TerraGenesis is about building up planets and terraforming them. Not the same type of gameplay.
