In which I finally play Horizon Zero Dawn

“I know not with what weapons World War III will be fought, but World War IV will be fought with sticks and stones.”


Albert Einstein


With all the hype about the Horizon Forbidden West, I thought I would go ahead and try the original Horizon game. Horizon Zero Dawn takes place in a world where humanity has literally blown itself back into the stone age. I really enjoyed it. The open world is vast, beautiful, and filled with different tribes and robot animals. I loved the future-tribal aesthetic. I spent a lot of shards on outfits.

Look at this fantastic use of plastic and electronic cables as decorations and armor! So well designed.






The story was thoughtful and well-written. The combat was challenging. I liked the ability to use traps and the environment. In one memorable instance, I built an enormous trap zone for a Thunderjaw (robot T-Rex) and instead of chasing me through it like every other Thunderjaw, it launched a projectile that murdered me in my own minefield. I died. But I died gloriously in a ball of flame.


Horizon Zero Dawn was a lot of fun, and I look forward to the sequel, which looks absolutely gorgeous.
