I am very excited to play Starfield and experience a great Roleplaying game by Bethesda, and I believe that Starfield could possibly be a contender for Game of the Year. However, we should also keep in mind that the game does have issues, and this article will explain what problems Starfield has shown in its latest presentation.

30 FPS

This is something that has upset some fans because many expect a game triple-A games like Starfield are supposed to have 60 FPS. However, you should keep in mind that Starfield will have hundreds of planets, which will have players’ experiences completely different from each other. Personally, I can excuse Starfield for having 30 FPS because of its scope, but this might be an issue for other players.

Looting

In the presentation, we saw the protagonist looting some dead NPCs, and we could see that we could not loot their armor, which surprised me. Some fans might argue that we could not loot all of the NPCs of previous Bethesda games, such as Skyrim‘s Draugrs. We could loot their weapons but not all of their armor, but keep in mind that we could loot all of the armor that human NPCs possessed, which made Bethesda games so iconic. If we saw any weapons or armor in the game, then almost always, we could take the equipment we saw. Changing this feature from Bethesda is like removing the magic that players experience when Skyrim and Fallout 4.

Skill System

One of the many skills in Starfield

I found that Skyrim‘s skill system was perfect for me. It was simplified enough so that it was easy to utilize while being complicated enough to be able to roleplay different builds. Did you want to become a battlemage in Skyrim? Keep fighting with magic and weapons, and you’ll level up to become the greatest battlemage in all of Skyrim. However, in Starfield, we can level up by killing enemies, but in order to invest in perks, we have to complete challenges, such as intimidation perks. In order to obtain all of the intimidation perks, we have to intimidate 80 enemies in total. Red Dead Redemption 2 used this system to obtain equipment that would level up stamina, deadeye, and health.

I found it tedious when obtaining them, but thankfully I did not have to complete them as those upgrades were not necessary to complete the game. However, in Starfield, these objectives will be enforced, which would be annoying when replaying the game multiple times. Skyrim made leveling up feel natural and easy, but Starfield seems to make it feel more repetitive.

Conclusion

What are your thoughts on Starfield? Are you excited to play it? Will you play the game on PC and get mods to remove these issues, or do you think that these concerns won’t make the game any less fun? Please comment and tell us your opinions.

Starfield will release on September 6, 2023, on PC and Xbox Series X/S.
