Horizon Forbidden West

Platform: PlayStation 5
Developer: Guerilla Games
Publisher: Sony Interactive Entertainment
Genre: Action role-playing
Modes: Single-player
ESRB Rating: T (Teen)

Horizon Forbidden West is more than just an interactive game you play, it’s an experience. Forbidden West’s story takes place not too long after Horizon Zero Dawn. The land is dying, storms and an unstoppable blight are ravaging humanity all while new machines terrorize the landscape. Humanity, as we know it, is hurtling towards extinction.

It’s up to Aloy to uncover the secrets behind these threats and restore order and balance to the world. Along the way, Aloy reunites with old friends, makes new alliances with warring factions and unravels the legacy of the ancient past. In addition to the game’s main quest, there are numerous side quests that can be optionally completed to flesh out the story. Between the game’s main quest, side missions, errands and salvage contracts you can easily spend 50-60 hours playing.

When it comes to presentation, Horizon Forbidden West does not disappoint. The game’s graphics are among the best I have ever seen in a game. The amount of detail and the crispness is phenomenal. The character models are life-like and the way their clothing and hair move in the wind is nothing short of breathtaking.

Elden Ring

Platform: PlayStation 5
Developer: FromSoftware
Publisher: Bandai Namco Entertainment
Genre: Action role-playing
Modes: Single-player, multiplayer
ESRB Rating: M (Mature 17+)

Elden Ring arrived earlier this year and it is massive. George R. R. Martin helped create the game’s lore. As a result, the atmosphere of Elden Ring feels straight out of a Game of Thrones novel. The story starts off as most fantasy stories begin. There’s a legendary thing, in this case the Elden Ring. Everyone wants it for power, fame and fortune. Sadly, the Elden Ring is Shattered in war and all those who descended from this event are known as the Tarnished.

Gameplay is punishing yet rewarding and drives you to progress and dive deeper into the game world. You are given a clear narrative reward here to uncover the mysteries of then Elden Ring. Is it enough for new players of the brutal Souls formula who like George R. R. Martin to take a step into the Elden Ring.

The main draw of Elden Ring is overcoming a variety of seemingly insurmountable challenges. The game’s open world setting allows you to “choose your own adventure.” If a particular section of the map is too difficult; you can just jump on your horse and ride to a new area. Elden Ring truly lives up to the masterpiece that was promised to fans. If you’re looking for a challenging game you won’t find too many games more challenging than Elden Ring.
