Now we know that Elden Ring is a better game, too. Horizon 2 is still good, but Elden Ring is a GOAT contender.

I guess i'm the only one who hates From software games?
Elden Ring didn’t really land with me. I put about 15 hours or so in it. I don’t know maybe someday it will click, but for now I’m not playing it.Meh

So like death's stranding.leaving messages, ghosts, and blood stains.
So then it's like a sequel? Never played em.No like previous souls games...
Demon souls and the dark souls series as well as Bloodbourne used the same system.So then it's like a sequel? Never played em.
Yeah...I've been putting off HFW because of this. I really need the basking glow of ER to wear off before I give another open world game a shot. I've been done with Elden Ring for weeks now, having put 115 hours in within 14 days of release and beating it. Honestly I almost feel ready for a NG+ run which would push HFW back even further. I just love the "choose your own adventure" aspect of an open world game that doesn't force you to take a certain route or progress a main quest far enough to advance the game. When I came out of the first ER dungeon I went straight to Caelid and got my ass handed to me, and that was the most fun I've had in some time. Replicating that anytime soon won't be possible. Kind of making me steer clear of the open world genre in general so I'm playing a different type of game where I can't make comparisons.I tried to dual wield HFW and Elden Ring but I couldn't. I decided to drop HFW and stick with Elden Ring for now. My reasoning is that HFW felt too much like a generic ubisoft open world game, albeit with a much better story. Elden Ring was a breath of fresh air much like BotW was when the first Horizon released. Gone was the map littered with a million icons, no more side "chores" (let's face it, they're chores, not quests), and the whole multiplayer/community aspect of Elden Ring made it a more interesting choice. I love the feeling of a shared world with all of the other tarnished out there leaving messages, ghosts, and blood stains. It's like we're all suffering together and that makes the suffering more bearable.
I do hope to return to HFW at some point, hopefully without the open world burn out. I think I have to learn to ignore all the side quests and just bee-line the main story.
I haven't been able to play this as much as I'd like since it launched, but I play every chance I get after work and gym (maybe once a week for an hour after) and a few hours on the weekends.
But somehow I'm 91 hours into this game and not beat it yet because I keep doing side quests and jobs to acquire new/upgraded weapons, lol.
I beat the first game in about 50 hours and completed every side quest I could before doing the final mission. I'm not sure I'm going to be able to do that this time without completely forgetting the main story 😅. I do a main quest after a few sides/jobs though and think I'm nearing the end..? I'm about to meet up with the Avengers team to attack the Far Zenith people and hopefully get Beta back from them.
Thanks for that. I've been putting that last quest off for a bit now while I finish up the more interesting side quests with your team mates (wasn't sure if that factored into the end or not, I assume not) and trying to upgrade the legendary hunter bow I got from the arena. Getting the Fire Claw Sac Webbing was annoying for that upgrade too because it's very hard to kill the Fire Claw without exploding his chest piece where that webbing is located.You're actually at the final quest of the main story. When you go to the starting point it will give you the "this the point of no return" warning.
Just a fair warning: Make sure you have a weapon or two with Plasma damage and stock up on the resources you need to craft additional ammo for those weapons. Plasma basically melts the end game bosses and turns the fights from long slogs (due to some pretty insane health bar creep) into something actually enjoyable.
It's a small required part. There's no underwater combat that I know of, you have to hide to avoid confrontation, but I don't think you can defend yourself under water. I didn't find it frustrating.is underwater exploration and combat a big part of Forbidden West?...I just finished Zero Dawn on PC and loved it

I really should move on to CP2077 or Spiderman that I never played or something, but I'm really loving the game play and combat on this still. So I'm glad for all the extra content and explorable areas this time around. 😎
How many hours did you have on your game (there's a stats menu somewhere with your inventory and map)? Think I had done absolutely everything in ZD before finishing the main quest and was almost to the 50 hour mark when I beat it. Meanwhile I'm at 111 hours on FW and still have a couple side quests and many other errands/jobs/ruins/etc to knock out. It's probably too much for most people, but for me anything to keep me coming back is appreciated. Played on Normal difficulty the first time on both games.I just finished Horizon Zero Dawn on PC for the first time and I'm also tempted to play again in NG+ even though I have a bunch of other games in my backlog I want to get to (Cyberpunk 2077, God of War PC, Elden Ring etc)...the game is so addicting...excellent combat, amazing setting, really nice graphics etc

Perfect timing for me. I'm about to finish up farming for parts to max out my legendary weapons and outfits. Then I'll start NG+ on Ultra Hard just like I did on ZD.Horizon Forbidden West– Major Update– Patch 1.14

Is Horizon 1 or Horizon 2 the better game?
