There have been a lot of great games released in 2017, that it's hard to choose which one has the best story.
It’s GG best work. Well, the game is written by former Fallout New Vegas Writer. The game did a great job for keeping secrets.
They did. Even while you are in game. Just as you think you know what is going on they blindside you with a truth you didn't see coming. Love this game and its my choice for GOTY with no contenders in sight anywhere.
oohh man this game ...i hate so much to talk about it faults where at the end ,makes me love it....so much waisted potential of a huge production ....Why robots ??// Why GG??.....i know the plot behind it SPOILERS__________ the AI weapon factories etcetc ......but it doesnt feel right to hunt and kill robots that resemble animals .....all the adversaries should have been organic beings and being satisfying to hunt them down (GG why not aliens like Pacific rim???)....its so damn sad to see the excellent animators and art designer to have worked on imaginary beings and have put so much work on them ...and at the end to transform all these to robot beings.....i bought the game recently and as much it hooks me with its exemplary visuals and action -hunting gameplay so much it annoyes me to see the robotic souless beings being hunted down with bow and arrow......f#$ck it whatever....... i hope next time GG have a better judgement in game concepts .....

@AspiringProGenji, let him keep going. This game has been universally praised by gamers AND developers. It makes his criticism laughable. Their tech is amazing - the reason Kojima chose the Decima Engine for Death Stranding. https://www.youtube.com/wat... https://www.youtube.com/wat... http://www.playstationlifes... Over 100 E3 Awards and Nominations. He is a one rambling person with an opinion that means less than nothing. The public has spoken and it obliterates anything he has to say. He isn't worth a reply.
@naruga You are not helping and you always hate western gaming. That make me sick of you for good reason. I support both Eastern and Western gaming because they are very important to gaming industry. And you are breaking the balance of it. Kojima is Eastern developer is using Decima Engine aka HZD engine from Europe developer and he was impressed by their technical level.
@UFC i dont disagree with anything you said ...i fully agree DECIMA engine and Horizon s technical level is marvelous,superior to everything we have seen yet.....though i mtalking about the bad idea behind the concept to include robotic enemies instead of organic /biological ones (which would create a far more satisfying world to play
Let it go UCForce, he doesn't even know that there are human enemies in the game and that one of the main boss battles is against a human. Nothing more laughable than someone talking of something about which they obviously know...nothing. Someone who has not played the game through has zero worth saying regarding what constitutes worthwhile gameplay. And as I stated previously, it is his small opinion against millions and millions of gamers who actually played HZD and think quite the opposite.
@morganfell....man how old are you? 13? ...what didnt you understand form what i said?????/....i like the game and i can say i like it lot, more than you think) but could have been one Humongous hit with so much production and attention to detail which were given to it if all of these have been used for more satisfying ideas for main adversaries like i said before aliens , or biological types of enemies in order to create more satysfing gamepaly/or world as you hunt down the imaginary creatures ......
@naruga I can't take anything you type seriously after the constant bile of trolling on Crash Bandicoot N Sane Trilogy earlier this year, and it looks like you've been exposed here by morganfell and UCForce.
@RommyReigns, I love how he said it could have been a hit.... http://www.pushsquare.com/n... Ooops. And the N Sane Trilogy rocks :)
@Naruga Yeah, cuz Aliens are so original. Maybe they could have been zombie's also...but not actually zombies but infected by something that just made them do what zombies do so it'd be original. Anyhow, they choose robots. Those robots happen to be dinosaurs. Since that wasn't the major premise of the story, but was a setting for the story, why does it matter what they chose? It doesn't feel right to hunt robotic dinosaurs? Why not? They were the advesaries. The server(can't remember the name) was the antagonist. It controlled the robots. It used the factories to make more advesaries. The animals were higher up on the proverbial food chain, and while not all of them were aggressive towards the character, they offered up something that the characters/people of the world used. There was context, so why didn't it feel right? Maybe you missed the part in the main story where they explained why the mainframe was creating dinosaurs. Maybe you didn't realize the story's basis started from the premise that it's mankinds own ambition and lack of foresight that can lead to disaster. That's just as powerful as an unknown alien race, because the fall of man, and all the robotic dinosaurs were a direct result of man's own actions, which are more relatable than an alien with no seeming reasons to invade earth. The creators didn't make all these things then transform them to robots afterwards. The robots themselves were probably some of the best art in the game. Very complex. Well realized. Highly detailed. The robots themselves weren't soulless. They didn't really have a culture themselves, but there was a culture to the mainframe....and it was integral to the story actually as it was what Zero Dawn was all about. All the different kinds of robots had their own personality though.
Such a great game on multiple levels. Visuals, narrative, gameplay...this game is very high quality in every major area. I loved it and would probably choose it as my game of the year too.
I love the fact they rounded out the game...yet left open a door for a sequel. Would love to see some news at E3.
Door? Lets call it an unlocked gate...this just scratched the surface of the questions to be answered.
One of the best Yarns I have experienced in the industry.
Remove Xbox one and PC tags, game isn't on them platforms
Exactly, i don't want to see 30fps Plebstation garbage on the PC section.
Weren't games on those platforms in the running for the award though? Kind of blurs the line, but this is a contest thing.
but the article mentions no other games other than PS4 games, the tags need removing
Definitely agreed. Of the games I've played this year it definitely had the best story.
Great story along with great visuals, and from what I've heard great DLC. Such a great new IP from Guerrilla Games and Sony. Just great.
Its good, but NIER is better imo
Definitely. Nier: Automata would easily be my choice for #1.
How many of you silent disagreers have actually played through Nier: Automata? I have a platinum in both games and close to 200h logged in Horizon.
I just started this last night. The controls are great, and the combat is fun. The story is intriguing, and the world is very beautiful and interesting. Guerilla did a tremendous job, and I am very happy with the purchase.
I need to fire this one back up. Was going through and they announced DLC and I held off. I thoroughly enjoyed what was on offer. Breathtaking setting. Great story. Great characters...and love the digital dinos.
Fantastic story, ridiculous graphics, amazing new IP. Everyone should play this game, its just so much fun.
Without a doubt Horizon Zero Dawn has a great story and one of the best long lasting single player campaigns. GG is in a position to grow and continue their journey towards Horizon Zero Dawn 2 on the PS5. They earned their place.
Only second to Nier Automata when it comes to AAA
I still think about Nier's story. Playing A through E and then learning a great deal more even beyond that about the protagonists through the novellas and other accompanying materials below my mind. My early perspectives of just about every scene, including things I had already viewed multiple times, changed dramatically.
Beautiful looking game.... I just can't finish it. I'm not saying it's a bad game just because I don't like it, but for me it isn't bringing anything new to the table. It's just another RPG with the same mechanics as a lot of others. TLOU story is way more gripping. The exploration felt so monotonous. You can swipe at an enemy from meters away and still hit them. Looks amazing, but is just another RPG.
If you haven't finished it then you don't know the story because what you think is going on...isn't what is going on. You get that curve ball about 7/8 of the way through the game.
I understand I may be missing out, but it just wasn't interesting enough to make me want to stay. It's a beautiful game, but shallow in a lot of ways... In my opinion.
Again, it appears shallow because you haven't finished. Hope one day you do. This game didn't draw massive amounts of praise because it is shallow.
My kids were watching me when I beat this game, which I am grateful for because had I been alone it would've been harder to fight back the tears during the ending. 😂 LOVED this game!
My kids watched me beat it as well and what an exciting final battle! Also my youngest son teared up at the end. I think we all did.
It was emotional man.
Loved playing Horizon, love playing Super Mario Odyssey. Don't mind which one of the two wins the GotY award at the TGAs as long as it's either one of these two most deserving games (although judging from last year's shambles of an awards ceremony I would not be surprised one bit if it's given to PUBG or the deeply flawed and overrated Zelda).
Yeah those 2 are my picks for GOTY and both deserve it. Agreed, it's likely to go to Zelda though which dosn't deserve it imo.
I'd be torn between this and Wolfenstein II for story
I thought the Evil Within 2 had a much more memorable story and characters than Horizon.
This is one of the few games I had to find every piece of data as it pertained to the story. I love this game and at the same time blown away at the scope, detail and effort GG and Sony put into it!!! Also The Frozen Wilds is an expansion and it's better than some full games released this year.
ick. I dont think so anyway.
That’s because it’s your opinion and it also your agenda to hate this game. Don’t try to be reasonable here,buddy.
Just because someone doesn't like your precious game doesn't mean they harbor any sort of "agenda." If anything, you've demonstrated your bias in favor of this game and everything Sony over and over again. Perhaps you should take some of your own advice and be objective for once.
It became my favorite game I've ever played. Irony is I almost quit within the first 5 hours several times. Then I learned how to play it..
Yeah the gameplay can take some getting used to. I was fine with it playing from the start but I've just picked up the expansion recently it was actually pretty tough to get back into the gameplay having played loads of different games since. Back in the full swing of it now though and freaking loving it!
This story was the most memorable and interesting. The Persona 5 story was the most outlandish, ridiculous, over the top story of the year.
