Starfield is the talk of the town, and even game devs from rival franchises are loving it and sharing their excitement. Indeed, one particularly noteworthy voice among the chorus of praise comes from an unexpected source – David Jaffe, the original creator of God of War and Twisted Metal fame.
Starfield Ranked in Top 3 by God of War Dev
Jaffe, known for his long-standing association with PlayStation, surprised many with his glowing appraisal of Starfield, despite the game being an Xbox exclusive. Taking to his Twitter account, he declared, “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 time.”
While Jaffe’s recent gaming opinions have occasionally raised eyebrows, including his assessment of Tears of the Kingdom as “bland” earlier this year, his admiration for Starfield appears to have struck a chord with the gaming community. “Now your mileage may vary, of course, but if in the past you’ve found yourself realizing your taste aligns with mine, don’t let this childish console ‘war’ nonsense keep you away from this brilliant creation. If you love 1p action adventures, you owe it to yourself.”
Jaffe’s call for console unity has resonated with fans of Starfield, who have welcomed his open-minded perspective. One Reddit user expressed initial concerns about the game’s exclusivity, saying, “I was upset when I first heard it was exclusive just because it meant I had to pay more money to buy in. But I’ve always wanted to build a high-end PC, so I went for it. The game is great so far!”
Another user, PooPooKazew, echoed the sentiments of many, stating, “I know this may sound stupid, but it almost feels too good to be a Bethesda game. I played Fallout 4 earlier this year, and the difference in quality, even in the smallest animations, is night and day.”
As gamers continue to explore the vast universe of Starfield, it’s clear that the game’s appeal transcends console allegiances. With Jaffe’s endorsement and a growing community of dedicated players, Starfield has carved a prominent space for itself in the world of gaming. Whether you’re an Xbox enthusiast or a gaming aficionado on another platform, the allure of this interstellar adventure is undeniable. Starfield is now available on Xbox Series X|S and PC, inviting players to embark on an unforgettable journey among the stars.
