Game news ‘It’s one of my favorite games of all time’: a week after criticizing Starfield, God of War creator announces he loves it
Since the release of Starfield, player opinions have been all over the place. Some call it genius, others decry it, but whatever it is, Bethesda’s latest title is getting people talking. And it also happens that players change their minds after several hours of play. This is precisely the case of the creator of God of War who, after expressing his doubts with regard to the software, would now consider it as one of his favorite games.
“In the TOP 3 of my favorite games”
For three days now (nine for those who purchased the Deluxe Edition) players have been able to explore the confines of space on Starfield, the latest from Bethesda widely awaited by fans of the studio. The title offers you an extraordinary adventure by joining Constellation, an independent organization of space explorers who go in search of strange artifacts. From this postulate, you can then take the path of your choice. Like the studio’s other games, Starfield is a rich game, a vast RPG that offers a wide range of possibilities.
In any case, the software is not necessarily unanimous, as its predecessors were able to do. Beyond the completely insane pseudo-console war, Starfield often divides the players who have laid their hands on it so far. And it also happens that these same players completely change their minds after several dozen hours of play. This is precisely the case of David Jaffe, the creator of God of War, who had initially expressed several reservations towards the gamebefore completely going back on his words.
I’m console agnostic, y’all KNOW that. A great game is a great game. I say this because if you love games as well and don’t have an XBOX, you owe it to yourself to get Gamepass for a month and try out Starfield (even if just using cloud). It is easily one of my top 3 games of all…

(I’m not for any particular console), you know that. A good game is a good game. I say that because if you too love video games and you don’t have an Xbox, you must subscribe to Gamepass for a month and try Starfield (even using just the Cloud). It’s easily in the Top 3 of my favorite games. (Obviously your opinion will be different), but if you’ve ever felt before that your tastes and mine were quite similar, don’t let this stupid, childish “war” of consoles keep you away from this brilliant thing. If you love single-player action-adventure games, (you owe it to yourself to play this).
Starfield: “They lied by omission!” Has Bethesda kept all these promises?
A bit of everything and nothing at the same time
A few days later, David Jaffe went even further, declaring that Starfield was “the best single-player game” he had ever played. An absolutely rave review, which clearly shows the game’s potential. Nevertheless, the app is not without flaws, which players tend to point out with more or less enthusiasm. Finally, what shines through the most is probably the archaic side of the title, which seems to rely too much on the aging achievements of Bethesda. It is possible that Starfield will offer you an exceptional, rich and gripping adventure that will keep you busy for many hours. But on the other hand, you may also get the feeling of barely touching the vastness of the game and getting lost in tedious menus rather than the confines of space. But in the end, as David Jaffe said very well, if the game appeals to you, all you have to do is try it to form your own opinion.
