GeekReply: Here I am sitting while waiting for another one of Q1 or Q2’s great games to arrive on my doorstep. So many great titles so far this year and many more still to come. Still it’s hard to shake off this feeling of leaving Aloy behind. Horizon Zero Dawn still rings in my mind even with games like Resident Evil 7, Mass Effect: Andromeda, Nier: Automata, and Torment: Tides of Numenera under my recently completed belt. Hell, whenever I turn on my PlayStation 4 and make my way past the icon for Horizon Zero Dawn, I just stare at it wishing more content would magically appear within it. The experience was that enjoyable and I really do hope that Guerrilla Games is working on a singleplayer DLC. I’m so enamored these past two months that I just needed to get my feelings out other than with a critical eye. Although Horizon Zero Dawn was the first title I ever gave a 10/10 to since becoming an actual journalist. In an effort to think about Aloy’s adventure as much and long as possible, here’s five things that Horizon Zero Dawn did incredibly right.
Best game ever. Im totally into this, love everything about it.
Incredible game all around & a strong GOTY contender.
Story: I was really surprise by the story and how deep it is.
Gameplay: The gameplay and the graphics complement each otherm not every game plays as good as it looks
Machines: Some of the best enemy and AI designs ever. Just watching Snapmaws as a Crocodile lover move, attack, and even chill like a real croc was amazing.
Combat: Imo the best Open world combat to date. Not a single QTE, versatility, and epic soundtrack
Performance: Yet another thing that not every open worlds gets right. Solid perfomance with those graphics is a true achievement, something GG must be applauded for
All of that makes this game untrollable in my eyes. Amazing game!
