    Anyone else plan on picking this up? Put in my pre-order a few weeks ago, and now all of the reviews are starting to come out. Every one of them seem to say this is a fantastic game.

    Pretty giddy about this game, its sounding like a killer app for the PS4, and particularly the Pro.

    I plan to get this as soon as I can detach myself from Nioh. Reviews for Horizon are all stellar and the gameplay footage I've seen looks amazing, almost PC-caliber visuals. Between just Nioh and Horizon it is a very good time to own a PS4.

    This is one of my most anticipated games and one of the reasons I got a PS4. The trailer they released at the 2015 E3 sold it for me so hard.

    I really wish my BestBuy was doing a midnight release for this, really giddy about getting there. As it is, I'll have to grab my preorder before work tomorrow and know it's sitting in my car all day....

    Ill most definitely be picking this up, probably not right away because I still have quite a few games to finish but its on my list. The review/gameplay videos ive seen so far all make the game look amazing.

    Damn, I completely forgot about Nier: Automata too. Now I really need to hurry and finish Nioh so I can grab both that and Horizon. My backlog of games to play is becoming outrageous.

    I'll be interested to see what you guys think of this game. Been wondering if the "critic" reviews are overhyping. When I saw the game it just looked like a really pretty version of zelda mashed with tomb raider and a main character ripped straight from Game of Thrones (Ygritte).

    I'm hearing its more along the lines of Far Cry. I picked up my copy of Horizon before work today and its been sitting in my car all day and just waiting to get out of work. So hyped.

    Loving this game so far. People are right about the Far Cry stuff, but there's so much more to it, especially with the story. I don't recommend skipping any cutscenes as they add a lot of emotion and realism to the plight of some of these characters for whom you help.

    This is such a phenomenal game so far. And Aloy is one of my favorite new protagonists in some time.

    So my fiance was out of town last week and with all the free time I platinum'd the game. This is currently my #1 PS4 game. If you're on the fence I highly recommend this, it's really the full package. I spent 100 hours with Nioh and my 50 hours with Horizon was far more satisfying.

    Technially I've 100% the game based on the tracker in the menu's but I'm still missing a few audio and holo data points. I'm trying to track down everything because the story in this game was so solid and panned out so well.

    If there was a killer app as a reason to get a PS4, this game is it.

    I get so distracted in this game, there's a lot to do and see. I have only just arrived in Meridian and I'm already level 30 due to the distractions!

    I decided that it would be a good idea to play the game on very hard because I wanted a challenge. It took me 10 minutes to kill a thunder jaw earlier...pretty tense fight.
