I just finished it. Platinum trophy too. That game was so good. The whole concept is unique. Combat is so on point. The story is well written. I wouldn't argue with anyone calling it the best


Of course it is... Best storytelling in a Video game since OoT IMHO (Maybe some glimpses in ME) and that goes to show something...

It’s a great game... Second best on PS4 in this console generation...


What's the best?


GoW is far superior to HZD IMO. Not a bad game, very pretty, mechanically sharp, but from a story/character perspective I found it to be super generic/predictable. God of War though, that's an all-time great for me[/quote]

Well, if you’re no stranger to mythology, actually it is predictable as fuck

It’s definitely a contender for my favourite game of all time. I probably wouldn’t put it first only because of the nostalgia element in other games.

Still have to play the DLC portion. I’ve been having almost absolutely no time to play in 2019. My PS+ subscription is running out in fact in a couple of weeks and I might not extend... depends on games offered I guess.

About your comment on combat... what I found a bit disappointing in the game is just how easy it is to ignore most of the combat elements like rope traps and whatever. I went through the entire game using basically just the spear and bow :lol: I do tend to be lazy, for instance I dislike it when games let you upgrade weapons (rather than just getting a separate item) but literally not using any other weapon was a bit extreme even for me haha.

Do you use the plus solely for the monthly free games or do you play online often?

I played a few games of FIFA 18 (didn’t get 19) and I think also PES online but that’s it. It’s the games for me. I’m not much of a multiplayer fan.

I’m not sure if CTR is going to have online but if it does that’s definitely one I’ll be doing a lot of online playing on.

I'm also not a multiplayer fan. I liked Apex Legends but I never give it time. I always find myself playing the single player game.

I played Fortnite for a couple of weeks too but I don’t think that one requires plus anyway. :lol:

Yes, and just like all of Aonuma's Zeldas it is subpar...

Pretty mich a basic fact: OoT >>>>>>> every other game ever made!

Majora's Mask is a fairly good installment if you consider Aonuma's meddling and botching... But it’s just nowhere near OoT...

And I think there’s at least three other Zeldas that are better...

What’s good about MM though is the clock mechanics and the numerous sidequests...

That's one of the main things I liked about it. The groundhog mechanic and also the overall dark theme it had.

My biggest issue with the last few Zeldas is their absurd cartoony style! Zelda's a gloomy game ffs!

So far I played every single Zelda games on all platforms except for:

Twilight Princess
Skyward Sword
Breathe of the Wild

I'm waiting for the remakes for the 1st two so I can buy the Switch. Also for the upcoming Pokemon games.

Don’t, I hate the console and Zelda and Odyssey is all it’s got

Actually, I never finished the first two games... I like the 3D Zeldas...

Think Nintendo should go 3rd...
