Hi Dana thanks for the response. I have no idea if I will ever play the game. The article was about my bad reaction to a trailer of the game not a game review of any kind so I am sure many people enjoyed playing it. I have spoiled most of the story and I know of some of the reasons behind why they look the way they do without spoiling it for others. But I am not sure if that goes far enough.
I Still wish the dev team left behind the old tropes and made a completely new world that did not borrow so much from old Hollywood Visuals. I posted my reaction and first impression in the article above. But since then I have been neck deep in Zelda totally forgot why I was mad at Horizon XD.
Glad you enjoyed it. That is all that matters in the end it is just a game.
