Horizon Zero Dawn @ 10:16 am

Tags:

I enjoyed Horizon Zero Dawn quite a bit. It looks beautiful from beginning to end, and remains challenging even as you become more and more deadly.

After the Big Whoops, the earth is covered with angry quasi-zoomorphic machines. Their half-familiar half-machine design is one of the delights of the game, I think.  Human civilization has fallen apart to the level of tribalism. As a young huntress/Chosen One, you go out and shoot them and lay snares for them, and ultimately slowly learn all the background of the Big Whoops. How all of it came to pass is a wildly implausible, but satisfying story, that you get in dribs and drabs as you progress.
