Very slowly making my way through Horizon Zero Dawn. Have been periodically dipping in and out which is fine because I find it fairly accessible to jump in and out of. Having been a Video gamer of mostly FPS (COD, Battlefield, Rainbow Six etc) I have to say i’m starting to completely move away from this now and find myself really appreciating the large ‘open world’ RPG like HZD is offering.
Only recently listened to Matt talking about it in his Daft Souls podcast and I completely agree with his views on getting lost by side missions and loot pickups!! I find myself being more focused on a tick-list of ‘to do’ than fully immerse myself in the beauty of the game and the world it offers! This perpetual need to pick everything up is most certainly having an impact on my experience of it!
What do others (those who have played it) focus on?? complete the story in its entirety? Do the side missions first? or just spend hours after you’ve finished the story walking around because you want 100% game completion?
