Been able to get in some quality gaming time, so I finished (and platinumed) both the new God of War and Horizon: Zero Dawn. I’ll echo the common sentiment and just say that God of War is an incredible evolution of the series, and something I’d absolutely recommend to anyone. As for Horizon, I had a great time roaming that world and engaging with the unique combat system. There was a surprising amount of versatility to fights and enemy types, and combined with good characters and story beats, I had a good time throughout the adventure.
Now, just gotta decide whether to play Nier: Automata or Wolfenstein: the New Order. Both are sitting there and both look amazing.
