I love Aloy's imperfections, she's still cute and a lot more believable than your average female protagonist.

She is ugly, even Ellie(The Last of Us) is cuter in comparison but both are ugly.
Even some side characters look better.

Well they were smart enough to think about her human qualities before they catered to schoolboy fantasies.

Know how I avoid shallow crappy TV shows and movies? When I see a poster for the the production and the people all look like models.


Or they are models putting on glasses and then pretending to be nerds. And inevitably those flashy model shows are cancelled halfway through the season.

@morganfell you basically targeted all of CW's shows but I'm with you on that stance.

UCForce244d ago

Well, that's just your opinion.

I'm glad GG took time to develop Aloy in first place.

Their dedication to quality really shows. Horizon turned out to be everything I wished FC Primal could've been!

It's amazing how GG went from Killzone to this. I'm excited to get the game from the library next week!

Alexious244d ago

True, though Killzone was always a bit underrated. I liked both Killzone 2 and Shadow Fall.

KZ2 got high praise by everyone. KZ3 was good as well, but Shadow fall showed it was a launch title. It would probably be much better if they got the time.

I can't praise Guerilla enough over Horizon. Aloy is a fantastic character, and actually more realistic than 99% of all other characters in gaming history. She has real motivations, makes realistic decisions and has a driving reason for heading out alone as she does. The world is also fantastically detailed with a rich lore and history.

I don't think it's just Aloy either. Sylens is such a great character that fits so well in this world.
