Topic: Legend of Zelda Vs Horizon Which is Really More Realistic?

Two videos I've seen recently outline the difference in details between BOTW and Horizon. And it was pretty interesting to the see lack of little details found in Horizon. It's fair to say BOTW has a somewhat advanced system, which was displayed by Alex when he layed down metal swords to continue a current. But not seeing your footprints in snow while playing Horizon was 100% unexpected.

Surprise! A game that was heavily promoted heaving a physics engine has a better physics engine than a game that isn't about that...

The videos are skewed towards Zelda, not all the comparisons are fair. They never show Aloy walking in tall grass, because tall grass does move, just like it does in Zelda (and it moves a lot more realistically to be fair).

Fair point, but if that's the stance you take. How can you justify not having visible foot prints in the snow?

@Nintendoforlife Don't know what you're talking about. I didn't believe it, and since I was playing the game, I took a quick screenshot...

Literally who cares? The game's are going for completely different things, there's zero point in comparing that stuff. Or is anyone bothered that Zelda doesn't have robot dinosaurs?

Cant the two games just coexist?

@BLP_Software If you buy both, is it like crossing the streams in Ghostbusters?

Well both games are scifi fantasy so realism...pfft.

Honestly no. I feel each system offers its own things and when combining the libraries of systems the games across them support each other very well.

Some may be somewhat similar. Others not. But the libraries as a whole hold each other up by offering different things.

I'm surprised it took this long for the Horizon bashing.

Life would be so much simpler for people if they could play games without feeling the need to use one in order to degrade another.

@BLP_Software I'd say that Zelda is more "lore"/fantasy based, not sci-fi.

Interesting video comparison. Curious if that's taken on PS4 or PS4 Pro (why do I feel like gagging every time I have to ask something like that 3 years into a console?), I get the impression Horizon is more about the big set-piece events rather than the open world, though my copy will remain firmly shrink-wrapped while Calamity Ganon yet lives...

Just enjoy the games for what they are. Both are beautiful.

Why are we comparing them. Why can't they just both be very good games that released around the same time?

I don't understand why there's a comparison, both games are beautiful in very different ways.

Horizon is better because it's on PS4, I mean come on people. It's so obvious.

...define "Realistic". They're both fantasy games based on their own rules.

When one of the games has a main character with elf ears who fights monsters like goblins, and the other has a main character who lives in a post-apocalyptic world with giant robot dinosaurs, I think realism kind of goes out the window.
