Round 1: Fight 2 - Horizon: Zero Dawn v The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild
Last year we thought we'd grown bored of open-world games, but the truth was that bad open-world games were just being made. Yesterday we had two open-world games and today we've got two more - Horizon: Zero Dawn and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild became the most essential exclusives on their respective consoles.
If you have someone in your life who loves dinosaurs and/or robots, you can probably make their year by gifting them Horizon: Zero Dawn this Christmas. It was the moment Guerrilla Games stepped out from under the shadow of Killzone, delivering a game that not only looked great but was great as well. I defy anyone not to feel the thrill of the hunt while slo-mo sliding beneath a Thunderjaw's legs as you crack off an arrow to the underbelly, tearing away its defenses to reveal its weakness.
And then there's The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. Zelda is perhaps the perfect game for all the family this Christmas, even though it's single-player only. The hundred+ shrines act as Portal-like puzzles that encourage physics-based experimentation. Breath of the Wild is a great game for sharing the controller or helping each other come up with innovative ways to solve puzzles.
