I quite liked posting those Final Fantasy XII snapshots and I recalled that this year’s GotY contender, Horizon: Zero Dawn was absolutely gorgeous to look at as well. Therefore, I dug through my snapshots from this spring and decided to post some of my favorites. Potential spoilers here! Man, the game’s photo mode is spectacular. Enjoy!

Horizon: Zero Dawn – Wow

I’m having troubles in Zelda: Breath Of The Wild. It’s not the game’s difficulty. It’s that I simply don’t care. The game looks dreadful. The entire world is fog and I haven’t a clue where to go. Despite wanting to like the game, I simply cannot.

After saving some pennies, I snatched up Horizon: Zero Dawn and OMFG it looks incredible! The gameplay is right up my alley, so that’s no surprise there. However, the lighting, the landscapes, the facial animations: all are top-notch and incredibly-detailed. I’m only a few hours in, likely already farther than I was in Zelda, but I cannot wait to play more…yet another thing Zelda fails to instill in me. Certainly it’s not fair to compare, but when Nintendo’s title wins GotY from every gaming outlet, compare they will. And for me, right now, it’s a no-brainer. I’m utterly impressed so far. Let’s hope this trend continues!!!
