Bethesda Creates a Dating Profile

Oh, poor Bethesda: Bethesda responding to negative Starfield reviews on Steam

Here's an example:
In response to one user that called Starfield's story "generic" and the gameplay "boring", one member of Bethesda's customer support staff replied with a post highlighting everything players can experience in the game.

"You can fly, you can shoot, you can mine, you can loot!" it wrote. "Starfield is an RPG with hundreds of hours of quests to complete and characters to meet. Most quests will also vary on your character's skills and decisions, massively changing the outcome of your playthrough."

Bethesda is sending out big online dating vibes here.

Many of you have been fortunate enough to avoid online dating, but there's one particularly annoying type. You send them a nice message saying you appreciate their interest, but it's not a good fit romantically, and they respond with a thousand word response telling you why you're wrong. I never received one of these messages, but my female friends said they get them frequently. 

In short, Bethesda is mansplaining why people who didn't like the game are wrong.

Come on, B. Don't take it so personally. Criticism is hard for everyone. Just keep reading profiles and eventually you'll find your match.
