Post Horizon Zero Dawn is one of the best games of this decade
just wanted to let y'all know that. PS4 gamers unite. just a fantastic combination of technical achievement (the graphics and overall world environment are breath-taking), challenging and rewarding gameplay, and one of the best personal journeys for a main protagonist in gaming history. Aloy is a instant gaming superstar.

open-world action/adventure, with some elements of RPG (which are probably the weakest elements in the game).

It's like a Shadow of Mordor/Far Cry type with a story worthy of The Last of Us. And you fight Robot Dinosaurs with a sexy redhead. I give it a 9.5 and would say its the 2nd best PS4 game behind only Overwatch.

The biggest complaint I'd have is the repetitive "follow the tracks" side missions. However, there is so much variety to the enemies that they can always throw different combos at you and make each combat encounter a new type of challenge.

Corpse should buy this as soon as hes done with Breath.

I liked the game. Its not the best rpg out there but well worth the money because of the game length and story line. Funny how games like The Last of Us and Horizon based their character models after actresses . The Last of Us using Ellen Page and Horizon with Evangeline Lilly.

The RPG elements aren't that strong that I don really want to call it a EPG. To me it's mostly a open-world action/adventure game. If judging it on RPG elements it's not that strong. But outside of that, it's near/at the peak of modern games.

I'll look into this one, but it'll be quite some time. :mer:

I'm a completionist and it's going to take me months to "finish" Zelda. I estimate I'm 15-20% finished right now, after 30+ hours in.

Magnus did you ever find a good way to kill Rockbreakers (digging scorpions)? I hated them so much and I'm glad they didn't appear much in the main story. The Stormbirds, Snapmaws and Thunderjaws were awesome though.

I usually find the highest mound so that they can't burrow and pop on top of me. Also Hunter reflexes (helps quite a lot). I normally get in medium range to shoot at them with a combination of tearblast, fire, sometimes corruption arrows, and hardpoint arrows. Ropecaster is pretty much useless against them since they break out of it

Yeah I would triple shot with tear arrows to make them immobile. Once they were immobile it was pretty straight forward.

Hmm I felt my tear arrows never worked on them. I did play on hard though. The corrupted zone where you have to fight two of them was the hardest part of the game for me. It takes a long time to grind them down with the Blast Sling lol.
