We liked it, but many others didn’t. That’s the beauty of cultural works: they evoke passions. Whether for good or bad, Starfield has sparked a lot of discussion. If you’re one of those who didn’t enjoy the game, Bethesda has something to tell you.

If you believe Starfield is a bad game and share your opinion with the world by leaving a comment on Steam, there’s a chance Bethesda might respond to your comment to show that you’re mistaken.

As reported today by JuiceHead on Twitter, Bethesda’s customer service employees have been addressing negative comments on Steam, attempting to counter the criticisms made.

“The loading times aren’t that bad… right?”

For example, the loading screens, which apparently are justified by the vast amount of procedurally generated gameplay, and the empty planets, which are supposed to be that way by design, and more.

While it’s understandable that Bethesda wants to address the exaggerated criticisms the game sometimes receives, it doesn’t exactly paint a good image for the company.

Although the loading screens and empty planets are certainly an issue, Starfield isn’t the disaster that some disappointed players make it out to be.

It’s far from being the best game released this year, but Bethesda’s latest RPG has been generally well-received, scoring over 80 on Metacritic and launching with almost no bugs.

Starfield stands out as one of Bethesda’s best games and a highlight on Game Pass, boasting an engaging story, well-developed characters, and a wealth of intriguing content.

There’s a notable lack of seamless exploration and real innovation in the studio’s typical gameplay formula. However, those willing to overlook these issues will find an expansive science fiction universe to get lost in for hundreds, if not thousands, of hours.
