Starfield becomes an entirely different experience if you alter this setting.
Starfield was eagerly anticipated by gamers. According to Bethesda, its creation took over two decades but finally found fulfillment thanks to modern gaming technology.
Starfield may not have been perfect or underhyped – however it was certainly enjoyable and players have spent many an enjoyable hour immersed in its worlds. Overall though it provides hours of gaming entertainment if you like The Elder Scrolls/Fallout styled adventures in space! In conclusion: this could well be one of your go-to titles!
Sorry, the video player failed to load. (Error Code: 101102). In our review of Starfield we wrote “Bethesda has created something truly monumental with Starfield; its release marks 25 years since they released new IP. Every once in awhile a game comes along that fundamentally shifts our perception of what the industry can produce – this game exceeds even what has come to be known as an open world experience!”
Immersion is of utmost importance in any RPG experience.
Yet Starfield could surely do more – or so we thought. One player made an enormous difference by simply changing one setting – “Got bored. Turned off HUD. Felt like playing something completely different,” shared Redditor No-Patience8984 and continued by saying they wish there was an option like Red Dead Redemption 2 to quickly disable HUD on-demand.
“All modern RPGs should feature an HUD that gradually or entirely fades away after one to two minutes of noncombat,” commented ZPaine. Full Bat 8866 suggested they prefer toggle toggle toggle – not always need it in combat but don’t mind having helmet mods available like that in this game like Full Bat 8866 said; WAHSnoodle commented they have been saying this since Starfield came out!! This game would benefit tremendously from having dynamic HUD.”
Personally, when playing sci-fi titles like Starfield I prefer having my HUD active. After all, sci-fi requires having some form of radar at our disposal whereas for games such as Red Dead Redemption 2 such a radar simply wasn’t used back then – only compasses were. And having personally played Red Dead Redemption 2, without its HUDs I can highly recommend that approach as an enjoyable gaming experience!
Starfield is available now on both PC and Xbox Series X|S, plus Xbox Game Pass subscribers at no additional charge.
