With the release of Starfield back in early September, we immediately began seeing comparisons to Cyberpunk 2077 online, but that's been taken to the next level over the past week with the arrival of Cyberpunk's 2.0 update.
And that's across the communities of both games, by the way! Even amongst Starfield fans, there's been a lot of discussion about the similarities with Cyberpunk 2077 and some of the areas in which each title excels and falls short.
Here's just a quick example of some of the comments we've being observing on the Starfield subreddit:
The folks over at PC Gamer also published an opinion piece recently about why playing Starfield made one of their writers "appreciate Cyberpunk 2077 so much more", which is an interesting read regardless of whether you agree or not!
"There have been bright spots, or I wouldn't have played for more than 60 hours, but from its intro to its over-reliance on fast travel, I just keep being disappointed. But what it has done, and I thank it for this, is make me appreciate Cyberpunk 2077 so much more."
Ultimately, even though there's been some pushback over the desire to compare these two games, there's clearly a lot of interest in doing so. You'll find countless Reddit threads and social media posts about this topic online, and it admittedly feels like a lot of them are using Starfield to highlight why Cyberpunk 2077 is a "better" experience. Is that true? Is it fair? There's a lot to unpack here, so let us know your thoughts in the comments below.
