Re: Horizon: Zero Dawn > Zelda: Breath of the Wild

More great points. I like the feedback as both are games I think most people would really enjoy. On Zelda’s story, I can see validity in the criticisms. Unfortunately, as recent Zelda games have opened up their gameplay they’ve retracted the story. At various times, you had motivation to go questing...

Re: Horizon: Zero Dawn > Zelda: Breath of the Wild

Some good responses, guys! I’m reminding myself that I brought up an unpopular conclusion to playing both games and I’ll probably be alone on this one. Typically, I play JRPGs if I want a great story. Western RPGs for me are all about the world and combat. What surprised me the most was just how eng...

Horizon: Zero Dawn > Zelda: Breath of the Wild

Let me start off by stating the obvious: my title may be clickbait, but I don’t want to offend. Just discuss. This is my opinion and though I’ve been posting here about 10 years, I’m still just a nameless, faceless guy on the internet. Grain of salt and all that. So, I’m a little late to the party o...

Re: Key to a good sandbox game?

My biggest requirement is *excellent combat.* It also helps if there’s a lot of variety in the combat, letting you choose how you approach enemies and situations. It’s why I’m so high on Horizon: Zero Dawn. Breath of the Wild is obviously an incredible game, but the combat in Horizon is 10x better, ...

Re: Best games of this generation

I really need to get around to playing NieR Automata. I own it on PC but these days I haven't been much inclined to actually sit and play games at my computer desk - I've been in much more of a Vita mood. If you end up playing NieR Automata and finish ending A, you’ll have a great experience. If yo...

Re: Xbox Controller for Gamers with Disabilities

This is amazing. I don’t know what i’d do if gaming wasn’t my main pastime and it’s nice that we’ll theoretically be able to share our passion for gaming with those of differing abilities. I’m not a huge fan of Microsoft when it comes to their gaming strategies at large. Their lack of exclusives is ...

Re: is it worth it to buy the nintendo switch now ?

What GTS suggested is what I’m doing. There might be a system revision and I want to see how the Hori d-pad joycon looks. At $25, I’m not sure it will feel like an actual Nintendo d-pad and there are lots of retro games on the Switch that need one. There are enough games released for me to justify t...

Re: God of War PS4

I finished God of War last night. Ho. Ly. Crap. Absolutely amazing. Perfect blend of satisfying gameplay, intriguing characters and story, and cutting edge graphics to create a game that pushes both its genre forward as well as 8th generation gaming in general. It’s an A+ for me and easily the best ...

Re: Persona 4

It breaks my gaming heart just a *little* that you didn’t like Persona 3. It’s my favorite RPG ever and a probably a Top 5 game ever for me personally. I absolutely loved the cast and story in the game. But I’m happy to hear you are liking Persona 4. It’s a much more polished game and the story is m...
