Great game that will forever be known as the game overshadowed by Breath of the Wild

? I've never known it as that lol you might be alone on this one xD

I think a ton of people feel this way actually. Only the bad ones who downplay HDZ sales should be ignored

I haven't felt any need to play BotW while thinking about Horizon.

If this thread turns into a Horizon vs Breath of the Wild dick measuring contest I'm gonna ban the lot of you.

Probably the ton of Nintendo fans. But does it matter?

In that case I'd have to question whether those people know what "overshadowed" means.

Now Battleborn is a game that is known as being overshadowed (by Overwatch). Horizon though, achieved great critical and commercial success. There's no overshadowing whatsoever there, unless your argument is that it would have sold 15m+ by now if not for Zelda?

Dammit. I have been championing this game since it came out. This game is amazing, just as good as the other GOTY contenders from that year. But I didn't know it was at 8 million for first year! That's almost twice this site's numbers. I mean, look, I get that the game has a somewhat higher digital sale rate (I think 27%? which is 2% higher than normal?) but COME ON!

Anyways ... this is funny, because an analyst said he thought Horizon would sell 8 million LIFETIME. Now 12 million looks very likely. This makes my God of War prediction all the more likely Actually ... I might have to raise that too!

Amazing numbers, really need to give Horizon a try. Also seeing how well this game has done I reckon God of War & The Last of Us 2 will easily sell 10m plus.

If you get it don't forget to pick up the 'Complete' edition which includes the DLC.

Cheers, will do! 



Very deserved.

I wouldn't recommend going into the DLC area until you are at least level 30. you'll know when you meet the quest giver for that area, the colour of the icon is different.
