Trust me when you play it you won't be reminded of killzone 

Really? It doesn't remind you of Shadow Fall and some of the older titles? The color scheme, the organic parts, the mechanical parts, and the animations? I can't be the only one. Don't get me wrong, I think the game looks great, but those kinds of graphics don't have lasting impressions on me unless I go back and google them. I think the last time a game had a lasting impression on me from Sony was Uncharted 2 because it was truly unique for it's time and the only Plat I ever got, I literally can't remember what TLoU even looks like in detail anymore, only I loved it becuase of the story, presentation, and game play elements.

Lol you'll understand when you play it.  I'm a massive killzone fan and that series didn't come into my mind once. I'm struggling to comprehend that the same devs made both games.

I started it a few days before Zelda and 100% already. I was hooked enough that it delayed my starting of BotW.

The story really takes a deep tragic twist starting with the Makers End quest.

It still kinda haunts me days later but I'm a sucker for post apocalypse, religion, and origin of life stories in video games.  I love this shit. Horizon managed to tickle that funny spot that usually only top notch JRPGs can. Corral the player into some cliche preconception about the backstory, then piecemeal morsels of doubt as you approachthe climax, them the stunning revelation that you didn't see coming hits you like a truck.

 All presented with emotional voice acting, superb cinematography, heart breaking music, slow motion vista pans and lighting effects in perfect sync with background music crescendos.  Some of the end scenes had a drifty heart aching yearning feel with a Dances with Wolves or Last of the Mohicans quality to them.  It was amazing feelz and not even a JRPG. I left the title music on loop in the background for hours after completing it.


Definitely an unexpected and unconventional twist at the end, and shows the difference between taking your time and allowing studios the time, budget, and creativity to pursue new IP and vs cancelling everything to make more space Marine shooter HD remasters.

 

One of my favorite Sony IPS since Ni no Kuni and The Last of Us.

It is nothing -at all- like Killzone. It doesn't feel the same way. It doesn't play the same way. Nothing about this game reminds me of Killzone at all.



I don't know when I'll get around to it. So far behind. I just bumped Hitman to the front of the queue. Horizon will probably get the same treatment in....the spring?



Chinese food for breakfast

 

I'm not done the game yet (taking my sweet, sweet time) but it's been amazing so far. The game is certainly above a 90 for me and if it keeps going like this I could certainly see it being a 95 game. Maybe my favorite game since TLOU.



Bet with Adamblaziken:

I bet that on launch the Nintendo Switch will have no built in in-game voice chat. He bets that it will. The winner gets six months of avatar control over the other user.

"But Zelda.."  Exactly this.  Love Zero Dawn, but it's no BOTW.

Help me understand. Why does it have to be > or < Zelda? Why does it matter?

Edit: Actually, scratch that. In the OP: "Oh, and this is a horizon thread. Playstation. No need to bring other games into this or pit them against each other. Wink, wink." - So, we have no need to turn things into a Horizon vs Zelda topic. Plenty of topics here comparing the two.



                                                                                                                                            

I'm playing Zelda right now, but this is a potential system seller for me! It's looking great!



I'm on Twitter @DanneSandin!

Furthermore, I think VGChartz should add a "Like"-button.

physics on this game is a joke compared to BOTW

As this is being dealt with, let me just remind everyone again that needless comparisons to other games will be met with a moderation of some sort. The Topic Creator asked that you not do so and I'm honoring that request.

If you'd like to discuss other games vs Horizon, namely Zelda, have a look at a different topic here on the site. I'm sure you'll find one.
