After nearly 100 hours played and a year of my life, I think I’m finally done with Horizon Zero Dawn. I originally started playing in back in 2020 and it was one of the first games I played on Twitch, but the performance was lackluster and I got into an argument with one of my cats while live on Twitch, got embarassed about it, then got distracted by other things in my life.
I returned to the game when they released a performance patch that nearly doubled my frames per second, and the game went from being an ok looking game at 40-50 fps to a fantastically gorgeous game running at 80-100 fps with HDR (though only in 1080p still, I didn’t want to tax my laptop too much). The story is extremely tightly written and the voice actors and facial animators were both at the top of their game. If it weren’t ineligible for 2021’s game of the year, this would be it for me, it’s just that good.
There are however a few things that I hated, namely any of the flying creatures, I could never figure out how to handle them appropriately. Also, those hunting grounds / trials were difficult to figure out exactly what they were wanting from me at times, I did a couple of them upwards of 10 times before I realized what I was supposed to be doing.
Neither of those distracted me from how much I loved this game. The soundtrack, the day/night cycle, the gentle breeze as it passed over the grass fields I was hiding in from a massive T-Rex looking robot, it was all glorious.
