I can say which one I would prefer over the other. Horizon might be a good game but Zelda is a no brainer.
And that is perfectly fine. So all that other stuff was just a waste man lol. Bringing up metacritic, saying you rely on the opinions of others, telling people you prefer the opinions of many others(metacritic) over theirs etc. You could have easily just said that you prefer Zelda and that is your right. Why you went into all that other stuff is beyond me lol. I have Horizon but have not played it yet because I had a backlog of games to play but will be starting on it tomorrow after I get off of work so I can have all weeeknd to dive into it. Won't get to try Zelda until later this year when I buy a Switch around the Holidays.
But going from what I have seen of gameplay of both and what I have read. I am 100% positive this will be my favotire Zelda game of all time but I also feel that I will prefer the style of Horizon more so I am leaning more towards Horizon as my choice out of the two for now. But I know one thing is for sure they will both be AMAZING games! And they both scored VERY well and are selling VERY well and both deserve it!
