The best space games that show you how big the universe is

To borrow a phrase from the late, great Douglas Adams, space is a big deal. Really big. That’s why video games in space must feel so massive in scale. Stories must be epic, worlds must be rich and vibrant, and planets must be numerous. We have selected the best space games that will make you feel the vastness of the endless expanse.

This does not necessarily mean that we choose the games with the largest maps. Even if the game takes place between planets, it can still make you feel part of an enormous universe through the use of great world building, all sorts of different alien species, or even existential terrors of the unknown.
