Horizon: Zero Dawn - PlayStation 4
This was a nice new IP from Guerilla Games. It's a modern third person action game and the game mechanics are nothing new or special but I didn't find that a problem since most of them are borrowed from games that I really like. Even if it borrows from other games, this felt really fresh and original every other way. The game also came out finished and properly polished and worked really well all the way through.

The game's setting and story were just so good and interesting that it hooked me in straight from the start. The Post-post-apocalypse as a setting was refreshing and the world was really colorful and varied really much when traveling to different parts. The game is set in Colorado /the Rocky Mountains and the nearby areas so there is everything from snowy mountains, desert lands to even lush jungles (the game explains this).

The world is filled with robots that are modeled after different animals. Hunting these beasts is really fun and when you accidentally run in front of a Thunderjaw (a robotic T-rex with lazer guns) too early in game you are going to die. This made the exploring really fun and even little intense. There are also some small animals running around too. I wish there would have been more different animal species but the lack of them can be explained what the story reveals later on. The main character is interesting and her backstory and the tribal life that she lives were the first thing that really caught my interest in the beginning. And after the world map opens up I was just hooked in and had to see how the world got to this stage. I got over 90 percent completion rate after finishing the first playthrough. The game has similar side stuff to Ubisoft's games but the difference here is that Guerilla Games didn't fill up the map with hundreds of collectibles and climbable objects, so the interest of collecting them all didn't fade out. Technically the game is nothing new but still this felt really fresh and the world and post-post-apocalypsian human culture etc. kept the experience really interesting all the way through.

Also the game was so great technically that I can't remember any issues. Maybe the load times could've been faster but this only became bothersome in the latter parts of the game. And only if you are using the fast traveling system as much as I did at that point when I was trying to do every side stuff before the end game I was looking the loading screens quite a much. But overall the game ran smoothly and there were no glitching or anything like that. This is kinda rare nowadays with the open-world games especially.

The Banner Saga 2 - PlayStation 4
I really liked that this game picks up the story basically where the first one left it. Technically this was superior to the first one in every way. The game ran better, I had some freezing (for some seconds) in the first one but it never crashed and loading saves would be unresponsive at times. In this one I didn't have any problems whatsoever. The art and animations were improved and there were more of them too. The sounds/voiceovers added more to the gaming experience. The soundtrack is really good again lile in the first one. I liked the new characters,classes and enemy types they adde to this. And the story gets even more interesting as you learn more, like what started the darkness that is taking over the world. The first one really changed how I chose the to approach the random encounters in this game, since being a good guy really had some awful backfires. Now I really thought every decision throught before I acted on them. I play as Rook in the lead and I really do like the character (and how the first game changed him) and the relationship he has with the rest of the heroes in my group, Iver especially. They have great back and forth dialogue. Also I liked that you got to play with totally different character with Bolverk leading the other banner caravan. I played him like a hotheaded asshole who kept his Ravens priority number one. The combat with him was also really different and the berserker class was fun to play. December 2018 is the release for the third one at least at the moment since the kickstarter has reached it's goal now.I'm really looking forward to that and I hope that the add even more of the animations and voice over like they had more in this compared to the first one.

The Banner Saga - PlayStation 4
I've been meaning to play this game for years. I bought this and the sequel some time ago and finally started to play. The art-style is beautiful. The tile and turn based combat is challenging and fun. The roleplaying and the choices/dialogue trees afflecting the game and character's lives is done simply but greatly. Choices that seem to be small at first can come back and change the game so much. Everyone you save aren't a good persons and can turn on you.I ruined my first playthrough by waiting for the mender lady too long and I lost like 300 person out of the 450 on the final march to the walled city without any food. Then a certain person turned on me and stabbed me and killed one of my favorite party members So the choices really matter and they can have dire consequenses. The game's world feels real and the fake norse-mythology is interesting. I'm just one evening in but already can say that this is one of the best finds in games for a while.
