Horizon Zero Dawn
- Year of Release: 2017
- Developer: Guerrilla Games
When Horizon Zero Dawn came out, no one really thought much of it. The announcement trailer made it look good and gameplay mechanics certainly made it seem like fun. Yet few people knew what to think. Then, we played it. Once everyone got their hands on this game, they began to quickly realize how amazing the story is. Plus, we’re playing in a massive open world where there is something to do or come across seemingly every few seconds of playtime. This world might be overrun by machines, but this society seems to be almost pre-historic.
They make their own clothing and use weapons like a bow and arrow along with spears. Of course, players quickly find these are not your normal types of things and are equipped with impressive technology. You play as Aloy, a girl said to be “motherless.” While she does have one, she is not around. This matriarchal society assumes the motherless to be lesser, which forces Aloy to prove herself to everyone around. Can she do it? Plus, can she find out where she comes from and how this world came to be? You can find out for yourself in one of the greatest video games ever made.
