I forgot Assassin's Creed Origins is another good one

Pretty lifeless? Yet, you contradict yourself saying you fight the wild machines that roam the map. yeah... lifeless.

sammarshall102340d ago (Edited 340d ago )

@Sunny_D Filling the map with enemies doesn't make a good open world game Lol you have to have more than that. Exploration is key!

The Witcher 3 is a great example of open world done right

Dark_Knightmare2340d ago (Edited 340d ago )

Lol bro how is horizons world lifeless especially compared to neir where nothing really goes on. People and machines are constantly fighting each other in the world in horizon,when you're facing off against machines they can knock down walls,cabins etc,there's patrols and merchants and other things. Now in neirs open world if you can really even call it that because it's extremely small and presented almost like separate levels but anyway there's no patrols,robots that hop around in a very small radius waiting for you to get close,no big settlements and what's there is static. Meridian in horizon is amazing and full of life and there's nothing like that in neir. Horizon and botw are easily some of the best open worlds not just this year but this gen and neirs is nowhere near as good as either of them.

Neir automata open world is nowhere near as fleshed out or good has botw and horizons

Horizon?? Lol I must be playing a different game. Horizon's open world is pretty lifeless, pretty but lifeless lol it is a good time waste game though, I often load it up to fight some Tramplers, Ravagers, Glinthawks etc.

At least Nier has things to see in its open world

P_Bomb339d ago (Edited 339d ago )

Platinumed them both, you’re just plain wrong.

Nier Automata doesn’t have swimming or interactive water that can carry you away, no day night cycles, no weather, no climates (HZD has snow physics, sand snow and rain storms), no interactive underbrush you can hide in for stealth or pick for crafting, far fewer villages, no enemy camps to take over.

HZD has more NPCs walking around fighting eachother or simply available to talk to or quest, enemies can light the environment on fire and knock over trees, various environmental mods like corruption. More dungeons, enemies you can control, ice that can break, more variety in landscapes and enemies, more collectibles (vantage points, relics, audio diaries). Nothing lifeless about it next to Nier. Easily rebuked.

sammarshall102339d ago (Edited 339d ago )

@P_bomb I own both games too. Horizon's settlements all look the same with nothing special about them and there's nothing to see when traveling in Horizon

Most of your points are related to physics which still doesn't make it a good open world game

And like I said earlier more enemies doesn't help Horizons dull world there's nothing to see while exploring besides the occasional NPC vs machines battle

P_Bomb339d ago (Edited 338d ago )

You’re not making an objective argument for why you think Nier is a better open world. Provide examples for “nothing to see” and disprove what I said about Nier’s open world.

What’s there to see in Nier’s desert? Nothing. What’s in the space station compared to Meridian? Nothing. The empty human buildings are just big empty rooms.

zelda then mario. haven’t played AC Origin yet but i’ve liked Shadow Of Wars open world much better then HZD

Kribwalker340d ago

well sunny, since you’ve played them both to have an opinion please tell me why i should feel differently

Dark_Knightmare2339d ago

lol you troll everything Sony so nobody is surprised that you would actually like shadow of wars absolutely atrocious open world that's more like mmo zones more than horizons

LordoftheCritics340d ago (Edited 340d ago )

Zelda is truly open world in so many ways. Don't think any game has hit this mark yet in terms of open world. GTA V is probably the only challenger.

Nier has a pretty unique world, not very open but cool.

HZD is another decent open world feel. Not as open world as Zelda. Still quite limited.

This year had some quality open world titles.

Dark_Knightmare2339d ago (Edited 339d ago )

Lol you just keep proving you didn't play horizon very much if at all because their settlements were def different. MOthers crown was completely different compared to meridian or sunfalls but it's cute you tried to deflect everything that dudes comment named that proves horizons open world is better than neirs. It doesn't matter anyway most websites aren't even naming neir has one of the best open worlds that honor is mostly going to botw,horizon and origins

HZD, Nier or Zelda! I also enjoyed Origins! Horizon is my favorite but they all were very enjoyable in different ways!

starchild340d ago

Horizon Zero Dawn would be my pick with Assassin's Creed Origins coming in a close second.

Yukes340d ago

Crazy year when Horizon doesn't win anything. Stunning game. Breath of the Wild was just too good, though.

badz149340d ago

that's just one award which is televised. there are other awards too and I think HZD will snag a good amount of them
