Why Horizon Zero Dawn Is So Addictive

IGN: I haven't been able to put Horizon down, so I dissect what makes the game so darn addictive.

I couldn't agree more. Just the act of playing HZD and taking down the machines feels so good. It also helps that the world is an extreme joy to explore.

The music is what also makes it addictive. I just fight Thunderjaws and Stormbirds just to hear the heart pumping soundtrack, which makes me so happy I got a surround system before the game came

ps3vita4life281d ago

Yeah I agree, the music is absolutely phenomenal. The main theme gives me chills everytime I listen to it.

I dont understand this popularity with Soundbars at the moment. How can you game without surround sound?

Eonjay280d ago (Edited 280d ago )

If you have a PS4, you need to treat yourself to this work of art. You owe it to yourself. Thank you GG.

I actually have both surround sound and a sound bar on my set up and I barely use surround sound anymore. My sound bar is a cheap Vizio model and it's pretty damn impressive, and for more emersion I use the PS headset,w whichis great.

Getting a decent 5.1 system was so much better than going to 4k hdr.

I got the Platinum on it a while ago and just booted it up again yesterday and started a new game for the first time after completing it. I'm just mostly hunting and messing around in the world right now, it really is a good game and I can't wait to see how they expand on it.

One of the easiest Platinums to get.

fenome279d ago


My point was that it's still a pleasure to play even after getting the Platinum, not how difficult the trophy was. I don't care about trophies, this and Bloodborne are the only two games I've got a Platinum on and the only reason I bothered was because I enjoy the games so much that I wanted to do everything in them.

DragonKnight279d ago

I wasn't meaning that it was easy in a negative way, just saying that it was easy. I don't typically care about trophies so when I was finished playing the game and realized I only needed one more trophy (the one where you have to destroy the practice targets), I was pleasantly surprised. The way the trophies are set up in the game is great in my opinion.

fenome279d ago (Edited 279d ago )

I agree, and I agreed to your first post too. It is cool how it's set up, I still had flowers and statues to find after I beat it. I also had to get all the full suns at the hunting grounds so I thought it was cool how it plopped you back before the final mission to tie up loose ends even after beating the game.


I wasn't trying to be argumentative in my original reply either, sometimes context gets lost in text. Lol

For me, it's the feeling of being a badass when you take down one of the biggies!

Wow, incredible!! Guerrilla needs to hire this dude!!!!!

ps3vita4life281d ago

That's awesome to hear, congrats to him

Allsystemgamer280d ago

Hire him for what? Playing the game?

DragonKnight280d ago

Why? What is going on here? I went to his page and all I see are gifs and vids of clips of him playing the game. Are you suggesting that playing the game is a skill GG needs? I platinum'd the game, it was easy, where's my flight to Amsterdam?
