If you want something good you should use photoshop, however, photoshop costs money. A alternative free option is getpaint.net which is also pretty good.

I prefer photoshop but it costs money if you don’t want to buy that you can get it for free but that’s a lot of work I would recommend you to use Photopea: photopea.com if you don’t understand there are a lot of tutorials on it on YouTube

Hope this helps.

There are many free applications that produce similar designs If you consider getting the payed option programs.

Any software can design gui easily, just with enough practice as they have variety of application such as the common choices gimp and paint net - inkscape ect. They provide similar techniques in both programs you could still achieve those quality game icons/ UI, you just have to learn the software and basics of it consider finding one that feels comfortable to you.
