Ever since the release of Cyberpunk 2077 update 2.0 and Phantom Liberty, Starfield players have spent some time diving into the latter. It seems like Starfield players feel there is a huge gap between the two games where Cyberpunk 2077 triumphs over the former in quite a few ways.

Cyberpunk 2077 had a disastrous launch back in 2020 and it took 3 years and an anime for the game to reach its full potential. Starfield on the other hand had a fairly decent launch where it received favorable reviews for the most part.
