X User Convinces Former Hater to Give Starfield a Try

People can be very stubborn about people that they don’t like, especially when it involves video games like Starfield.

Sadly, there has been a lot of negative press about Bethesda’s newest RPG, and much of it focuses on the many bugs that Todd Howard and his team are currently working on for a promised series of updates that come out every six weeks.

If this X post is to be taken seriously, it appears that not all can afford to be that stubborn. This user, Karim Jovian, describes a friend who initially hated Starfield but became a convert when he was convinced to try it.

The said friend was proud to show Karim Jovian his progress in the game, which the X user took a video of and uploaded to his X feed.

Of course, many who dislike Bethesda’s latest open-world RPG were skeptical. They questioned the “progress” in the video, which showed only a player going up a flight of stairs, and accused Karim of making up the story.

Upon closer inspection, however, the progress he was most likely referring to is an outpost the friend built on an unnamed planet or moon. When the player reaches the top of the platform, the view rotates 360 degrees, and you can see how big the outpost is!

This is a vast improvement, if indeed this friend is a convert from a Starfield hater to one of its avid players.

When asked why this friend initially disliked the game, Karim said it was only because of what he read on the news and forums.

Indeed, Starfield is currently experiencing a slump in player count and Steam scores, but it is not yet down for the count. Forbes contributor Paul Tassi believes Starfield may have a true comeback once fixes are made as promised or when the Shattered Space DLC is finally released.
