I probably more in the "Why not both?" camp.
As annoyed as I am with most Bethesda games, I still play the hell out of them and enjoy them. And skyrim, or fallout, in space sounds awesome.
On the other hand, I mostly play the crap out of them because they've been so mod friendly in the past, but with the latest versions of Skyrim, Fallout 4 and Fallout 76, they've been getting less so.

Reminds me of single player Star Citizen with lower res terrain meshes.

I'll hold off until I get a good feeling about it, which I currently don't have. I don't have a bad feeling about it, but that's not enough to get me interested nowadays. I don't wish to invest into a No Man's Skyrim.

No game is perfect, that's a given, but I've enjoyed every Bethesda game I've played and I'm pretty sure I'll buy this one too.
For me, I'm playing a game, I don't look that deeply into it, and if it's giving me enjoyment and great exploration moments if it's a open world game, then all the better.
I do expect it won't be long after the game is released we'll all be stating '' I used to be a space explorer, until I took a laser to the knee''... biggrin

I'm watching this with interest.

I'd like a new space game that I can get my teeth into. That game used to be Elite until they 'improved' exploring and at that point I lost interest. I still have it installed but the chances of me putting in any more hours is not great.

No Man's Sky nearly became the game of choice but that also fell by the wayside.

As for Star Citizen... enough said.

Unlike Trooper, I've never been overly enthusiastic about Bethesda's games in the past so I'll be taking a nice long sit on the fence with this one.

Sooooooo looking forward to this game! After watching the newest video I am so hyped for it. Looks like how I imagined Elite Dangerous would be (still leaves a bad taste in my mouth how lacking that game was...)

I've always enjoyed Bethesda open world games, and I'm really looking forward to this one!

Me too. They've tightened up the gunplay by the looks of it which was bad in the Fallout games, but it still had that Bethesda feel.

With or without the use of VATS?

if the gunplay in Starfield is similar to how it worked in the Mass Effect games then I'll be happy.

Fallout gunplay was deplorable. I tried to play that without VATS and the enemies had laser aim and would instant head shot. Pretty lame. Especially New Vegas. That was ridiculous.

Not so cover shooter-like as in ME although I'm sure you could go into cover. What it showed in the video was jetpack boosting up and shooting whilst airborne.

I'm watching this cautiously. Elite Dangerous was great at the start but ultimately left me very disappointed. We'll see, I guess. I'm retired and just want to play a game not start another job.

Elite was great until the people started going to Mobius/Solo. I got a year out of the game, which was nice.

Frontier made many, many bad decisions, and failed to realize that if they lost the player interactions then most of their content would vanish as well.

The funny thing about that is, I grew up on the original Elite, which was a single player game. I also played a later version, I believe it was Frontier, again it was single player.
So to me, Elite has ALWAYS been a single player game, and that's how I choose to play it personally.


Throughout history, poverty is the normal condition of man. Advances which permit this norm to be exceeded — here and there, now and then — are the work of an extremely small minority, frequently despised, often condemned, and almost always opposed by all right-thinking people. Whenever this tiny minority is kept from creating, or (as sometimes happens) is driven out of a society, the people then slip back into abject poverty.
This is known as "bad luck.”

The core game of Elite Dangerous is extremely shallow and boring once the humans are removed.

I put in close to 1,800 hours into Elite Dangerous. Very good game but I got my fill and moved on.

ED is one of the best space games I've played... I never went in for the Odyssey thing, it just looked naff to me.
