Star Wars Jedi Survivor

Star Wars Jedi: Survivor takes place 5 years after the events of Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order. It is a third-person action-adventure game, where you follow the story of Cal Kestis across the galaxy.

The Outer Worlds
- Release Date: October 2019
- Platforms: PC, Xbox, PlayStation, Nintendo Switch
Created by a team that worked with Bethesda for previous games, it feels a lot like Starfield, but without its depth. Still, it remains a humorous, well made and highly enjoyable experience.
Set in a dystopian future, The Outer Worlds gives you a captivating journey through a galaxy controlled by mega-corporations.
You will play a character awakened from cryosleep to find themselves in the midst of a sprawling conspiracy – so expect to make choices, allies and foes during your experience.
You’ve got the RPG elements, the nice story (although short), a space-setting and a general feeling that you’re playing Starfield when trying this game. A bit underrated in my opinion, so definitely worth trying.
It’s also a game that we’ve covered heavily here on Common Sense Gamer, but you can start with some general Outer Worlds gameplay tips and tricks.
No Man’s Sky
- Release Date: August 9, 2016
- Platforms: PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, Xbox Series X and Series S, Xbox One, Microsoft Windows, macOS, iPadOS
No Man’s Sky is a game about exploration and survival in an infinite procedurally generated universe.
The galaxy is a living, breathing place. Embark on an epic voyage at the center of the galaxy. You will have to face hostile creatures and fierce pirates, and survival will be up to you, and the choices you make along the way.
Always make sure to upgrade your ship, upgrade your weapons, and definitely the suit that keeps you alive.

This is the BEST game in the Fallout franchise (sorry, Fallout: New Vegas fans!) and, even though a bit older than most other games on the list, it has aged well.
Not to mention the fact that there are plenty of mod and unofficial updates that really make it a standout and complete experience for RPG fans looking to play something like Starfield.
Also released by Bethesda, it’s basically Starfield on Earth only, without the star ships, but with mutants and zombies and plenty of character. If you somehow haven’t tried it, you must try do so ASAP!

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim

Skyrim has been rereleased for so many platforms through the years, and it has withstood the test of time.
No matter how many times you go back to it, the world will remain rich, vibrant, and alive. No matter where your adventure starts, which faction you join, or what skills you focus on, the Dragonborn will always be a character to go back to.

If you’re looking for a darker, grittier and more insane & intense game that’s like Starfield, then you definitely have to try Atomic Heart.
Definitely a step up in terms of gore and violence, it remains a game with a great story, a wonderful world and an amazing concept. And it’s futuristic enough to make up for the lack of spaceships and planet exploration.
- Release Date: September 2023
- Platforms: PC
If you’re all about the space ships and space exploration, but also co-op gameplay, Void Crew is the hidden gem you were looking for.
While it’s not focusing on the RPG elements and building up a solid story, it’s a great fun game to play with friends… in space.
You will pilot ships, explore the universe, scavenge derelict ships and encounter plenty of enemies: all with your friends, in an unforgiving environment that’s equally frustrating and amazingly addictive.
In other words, if you enjoy playing Starfield, you will surely enjoy this one too.
There are many different games that could invoke the same feelings that Starfield did.
