Bethesda’s latest space-faring adventure, Starfield, has garnered a lot of attention since its release. However, some long-time fans of the developer’s games feel that Starfield lacks the signature “weird and crazy” moments that made previous titles like Fallout and The Elder Scrolls so memorable.
One player reminisced about the bizarre quests and moments from past Bethesda games, such as Fallout 3’s cannibal family mission, the crashed alien ship, and the option to nuke Megaton. They also mentioned Fallout 4’s canning factory mission and the unforgettable Liberty Prime. The Elder Scrolls series, too, had its fair share of eccentricities.
The player expressed disappointment, stating, “Why doesn’t Starfield have anything weird or crazy in it? Where’s the spacestation with some crazy inhumane experiments? Or a moon where all inhabitants mysteriously disappeared? You can’t convince me that nothing weird happens in space.”
Another player echoed this sentiment, pointing out specific locations in Starfield that felt underwhelming, like the Astral Lounge and the Red Mile. One user humorously commented on the game’s romance options, saying, “1000 planets and I can only romance two women. Feels quite realistic.”
However, not all hope is lost. Some players have stumbled upon intriguing locations and missions that hint at the bizarre. One user mentioned finding space stations with “crazy inhumane experiments,” sparking curiosity among others who are eager to explore these mysterious sites.
While Starfield offers a vast universe to explore, it seems some players are yearning for more of the unexpected, wild twists that Bethesda is known for.
