Starfield Fan Reimagines Menu Navigation, And Bethesda Should Take Note

How many more times do I need to hit the start button, Todd?

Starfield is a game that takes a little while to start cooking. At first, things may feel slightly cumbersome and awkward, as do plenty of other Bethesda games on the market. But, as you slowly start to build the world around you together, things start clicking into place like an intricate puzzle. However, one piece of the puzzle never really finds its spot to be placed, and that’s the horrid menu system. It’s like Menuception in here, with a menu within a menu, and it feels like this could be elevated with ease.

That’s what makes this mock-up by Reddit user u/turbokacperel all the more impressive. Condensing the inventory screen into an easier-to-read, navigate, and overall manage experience sounds like something that will keep a lot of players engaged further than they may be already.

Starfield is an incredibly ambitious game with plenty to love, but the menus are not one of those particular things. Less time spent in the menus and more time exploring would be ideal, as a lot of time could be spent navigating through the less-than-intuitive menu system in Starfield.

Users have already begun tagging Bethesda Softworks director Todd Howard in the Reddit thread, hoping that this is brought to his attention. Will we likely see a complete menu overhaul shortly? I can honestly hope so because I’m personally loving everything else that Starfield has brought to the table.

Only time will tell if this thread will gain the attention of the head of Bethesda, so make sure that you tag him in it as quickly as possible to express your interest. At least the Modding community has the back of the PC community, with console support coming in the future to hopefully bring this concept to life and give us the menu we all deserve.
