    No, absolutely not. It has zero redeeming qualities that those other games have. Boring combat, boring loot, forgettable characters and story, no alien races, pointless settlement/spaceship building, copy and pasted "points of interest." It's the most shallow, soulless game I've played in a decade and I regret spending money on it. All I can do is warn others now.

    Why would you even consider it if you hate space shit?

      no
      even by bethesda standards it had a lot of serious problems
      it's shallow, they gave up having a gameworld of anykind so they could do the 1000 planets meme and it did not pay off
      it's like they looked at no mans sky, saw it had billions of mostly empty worlds and thought that's what people liked about no mans sky

      Its not bad it just need to be fixed with 5 dlcs and some years of updates

      Couldn't have said it better, this game has the same inherent problem than the space lesbians one, it's extremely mediocre, in the way that does nothing well or bad, everything just is, and as you've said, it's not a fun game, it's boring and uninteresting because it doesn't engage you in any single way.

      DLC cannot fix this game. Going between small copy-pasted planets for 5 minutes after several loading screens endlessly is a game design decision that cannot be changed now.
      There is no exploration, there is no interesting story, there is a repetitive shitty "puzzle??" to get abilities, caves aren't worth exploring, nothing is worth scanning, I could go on but I've already wasted enough time on Starfield.

        Starfield is, notably, following a different track for DLC then Fallout/Elder Scrolls did.
        The court documents, and the lack of a "Season Pass" for Starfield, along with the increased development time for Shattered Space hint that Shatter Space is going to be probably the biggest post-launch DLC Bethesda has ever done - comparable to something like Shivering Isles if anything.

        Even if Starfield was set on one landmass ala Skyrim/Fallout its progression is so bad that its not worth playing though, Bethesda's just burning Microsoft money right now making this huge DLC for a game this bad.

    Depends on what you mean by "hate space shit". You're not going to be stuck flying around in the endless void all the time if that's what you're asking, much of the content is on moons and planets. Gameplay wise it's better than Fallout 4, but doesn't come close to Skyrim.

    it's seriously bad, not in a Ganker v everything is bad kind of way either, it just feels completely amateur with the bone headed design decisions, story is bad, characters are bad, loot is bad, exploration is bad, inventory management is bad, crafting is bad, gunplay feels unresponsive, there's just this unshakable feeling like youre playing a game that should have been canceled , maybe mods have improved it in some places by now?

      The rest of what you listed could be forgiven or expected but the fact exploring a brand new sci-fi setting in a Bethesda game is shit takes away any reason to play it when you're going to be intrupted by 5 loading screens from point a to b on some quest.

    In those other games, there were places in those world where you could really dig in, find yourself immersed down rabbit holes or quest lines, or just play doll house on your manor and enjoy the passage of time of the world around you. Starfield has nothing to really dig into, it feels hollow with no sense of distance from one planet from another. You don't feel attached to any person, place, or thing. I can get lost just exploring the map in 76, I could never get lost in Starfield, there are no Stepping out moments like Blackreach. Nothing ever feels living and breathing despite how much effort at times it seems they tried to

    If you enjoy Bethesda dungeon crawling, it's a okay game, here's some tips
    >avoid the main quest
    >avoid anything to do with crafting at all, im amazed they fricked this up after nailing it with Fallout 4
    >invest some points into sneak and speech so every questline is doable in a single playthrough
    >don't bother with ship building, you will barely see it
    and most importantly
    >don't pay a dime for it

    It's mid even by Bethesda's standards, if you really want to play a Bethesda game, play Cyberpunk, the story and lore are actually good, the gameplay is more varied and fun, since there's cars and stuff, and the skills are more than percentage increases. It will scratch the same itch.

    I'd recommend Fallout 76 over this, to be honest, it has a actual open world and much larger loot/enemy variety.

      One thing to note, the May update introduced empty habs and decorations so you can customize the interior of your ships now, however this is only available to those who opted in for the Steam beta, regular and Xbox players won't be seeing this update until the 15th. There's also some preliminary survival mechanics in it now

      But ship building is honestly the most fun part to me.
      Fine tuning a ship for maximum performance is fun, and I have to imagine certain questlines that do require a bit of space combat would be pretty awful without a halfway decent ship.

    Nah you'll dislike it, the whole appeal of Starfield is that it's a unique space RPG set in a hard scifi setting with interesting grounded lore which lets you walk around, explore and feel like you're just on the cusp of human exploration and expansion in the stars. I love the game and it's my favourite game but I can see why people who dislike scifi and space can hate it.
    You can always pirate it to try though, game is easily piratable and that's what I did.

      It's not just Ganker though, this game outright filtered normalgays en masse. I know Ganker likes to brag about being anti-normie at times, but this game was the true test of that.

    Prob.
    Gameplay is functionally pretty similar to FO4: except with jump-packs and magical powers later on.
    Also building/designing starships is pretty fun.
    The overall story itself is an interesting concept, but written... not great. Companions are more "human" in that they always have an opinion on whats going on, which is also the worst part about them.

    Some advice for how to ""Enjoy"" Starfield.

    >Do not play Starfield unarmed. It's not "A Playstyle" like it is in other TES/Fallout games. It's functionally broken due to the fact that internally it has essentially 0 damage scaling.
    >Do not bother with newgame +. You are only rewarded with tiny modifiers on your shout-like abilities. You lose so much progression in your base building and legendary drops and quests when you newgame+ that it's almost never worth it.
    >In-fact, just ignore the main quest. It railroads you hard and doesn't give you opportunities to roleplay.
    >Do not pick the House of Va'ruun snake cultist background. There is only one dialogue option for it in the entire main quest. Since most of House Va'ruun is just a mystery box right now we don't even know what it really means to be a member of House Va'ruun.
    >Do not bother with base building. Unlike in Fallout 4 every planet is just a empty rock: the vista's aren't interesting enough to really challenge you as a designer to figure out how to optimally use the space allowed. All of your bases are automatically deleted when you newgame + anyway.
    >Do not bother with stealth. It's a waste of time since no enemy is ever a threat anyway.
    >Enemies scale with you. Starfield uses Oblivion level scaling. Notably, for Unarmed, your damage scaling is so little with each level and enemies gain so much with your level scaling that avoiding combat entirely is actually the best way to play. Treat it like Oblivion "Level 1" playthroughs. There are no fist weapons in Starfield, so legendary enemies - and loot in general doesn't matter for your build.
    >Do not play on a Nvidia GPU.
    >Do not play on Linux.

    >Just play Pathfinder: Wrath of the RIghteous instead.

      If there was a way to actually capture bounties or do a pacifist run, unarmed would effectively be the most overpowered combat mechanic in the game if you level up the EM damage skills, I'm talking knocking enemies out in 3 or 4 hits if you max them out
      >Do not bother with newgame +. You are only rewarded with tiny modifiers on your shout-like abilities. You lose so much progression in your base building and legendary drops and quests when you newgame+ that it's almost never worth it.
      NG+ also raises game difficulty (probably not necessary now because of the update), gives you new dialogue, allows you to save all your companions, and it likely integral to the main story because of how the Starborn works

        At the very least, do the first newgame plus 'cycle' if you care enough to save everyone on constellation.
        I remember some people early on talking about how you 'have' to get to like, new game +10 or something to really 'enjoy' the game - in my experience its the opposite.

        >If there was a way to actually capture bounties or do a pacifist run, unarmed would effectively be the most overpowered combat mechanic in the game if you level up the EM damage skills, I'm talking knocking enemies out in 3 or 4 hits if you max them out
        Plenty of ways to fix unarmed. Really hope a mod comes out to do something if Shattered Space doesn't add Space Vampires or something stupid to fix it.

          They were referring to the fact that the game's difficulty went up the more you went through the Unity on top of the fact that your powers, Starborn ship and suit upgraded on each run. Story-wise, it's unnecessary to go past the first NG+ unless you want to experience the random events at The Lodge, or if you chose to skip the main story and missed some of the extra backstory dialogue from The Hunter and The Emissary

    You will definitely not like it because contrary to what morons say Starfield is almost like an anti-Bethesda game. You aren't getting Skyrim or Fallout 4 in space. I wish you did. BGS games thrive on exploration. Starfield doesn't offer exploration. There's a gorillion more things wrong with Starfield that many have already touched upon be it lore, writing, companions, quests, atmosphere, the "cities" and what have you but the #1 problem absolutely is exploration in this game. it doesn't have it. Just go play their previous games again.

    As someone who plays Bethesda trash, most likely you won't enjoy it. It's really bland and uninspired in most scenarios. The main plot is really boring and constantly jumping through menus and loading screens is an utter chore. It's just an all over unenjoyable game. I'm still waiting for the Creation Kit to arrive, but I doubt modders will be able to salvage much in this game.

    I sunk 15-20 hours into it, deeply regret it but the experience of learning what not to do in game design made it worth it. If you can appreciate critical theory and enjoy playing bad games to improve your ability to critique - then I would play it if I were you.

    If you are just looking for a fun, enjoyable experience in a space-based immersive sim, this isn't it. You won't get immersed with all the glaring issues the title has. This game feels like playing a worse sci-fi Oblivion.
