From the creators of Skyrim and Fallout 4, expectations were sky-high for Bethesda’s “first new universe in 25 years”, Starfield.

Despite the enormous anticipation of its release (1,000 planets to explore!), it didn’t seem to quite hit the mark for players when it came to gameplay and storyline.

It received a lukewarm reception and mediocre user reviews, and has missed out winning the one award it was nominated for this evening, for technical achievement.

However, it’s worth bearing in mind that the game recently won the very similar Best Innovative Gameplay at the 2023 Steam Awards, so it hasn’t gone completely unrecognised.
