The power of spring in Horizon Zero Dawn, Everybody's Gone to the Rapture and The Last of Us

After the darkness and dormancy of winter life restarts, almost as if the punishing frosts, snows and winds had never happened. The season of spring starts to take hold, colours reappear, foliage regrows and landscapes transform to offer different looks, feels and opportunities for interaction. This can be truly impactful when it manifests in video games.

Some really beautiful spring scenery can make for a really wonderful gameplay experience. Halo always had really great lush Spring-like moments, too, and it changed the game from what could have otherwise been all grey spaceships and such.

Spring is a garbage season because it's a gateway to summer. Fall is where it's at, bitches.

Fall (Autumn) is a garbage season because it's a gateway to cold of winter. Summer is where it's at, bitches. XD

We are now enemies for life.

Spring is for lovers. Go wither away with your fragile, dry and dead foilage all alone under a lifeless grey sky. Spring is king, fall is dull.

Real lovers can perform in any season and under any weather conditions.

Horizon continues to still leave me in awe, with how gorgeous it’s world is. Spring scenery always makes me smile lol.

Easily one of the best looking games of the entire generation so far.

I can't wait to give that game a second playthrough when the sequel is announced!

I can't wait for Guerrilla Games to announce a sequel as well. Along with showcasing gameplay.

My mind really can't comprehend how even more impressive the sequel will look. I mean, with the Decima engine being used for Kojima's "Death Stranding" and that games gameplay footage being Real-time and looking the way it does (Mind blown) they'll learn, improve etc... Greater things are sure to come from Guerrilla and their remarkable engine.

With TLOU remastered being cheap on PSN atm I thought it was about time for a second play-through, I forgot how great looking it was - HDR and 60fps only makes it better.
