    So after the game has settled for me and I look back on it, I'm still not sure why this didn't capture me like it did many others. A lot of things were cool the first time I did them. There was a good variety of "1st times" in this game. However I fought open world fatigue through much of this. The side quests were mostly uninteresting and the main quest felt like mostly a grind once I got the hang of everything and learned I could run past most danger. The linear segments you're forced to play through emphasized the games shortcommings with poor A.I. and environments that really weren't that interactive.

    Are we over-rating this game because it's so pretty and a new IP? Or am I just a grumpy ass old man gamer? Is it some combination of both? Lol

    I need to get back to this. I haven't played this since Ghost Recon came out.

    I'm closing in at 90% complete which I'm guessing is mostly main quest stuff left. Yea I hear you on the open world fatigue. Before this game I put 80 hours into a single playthrough of Nioh and this game will near 80 hours as well. So between the open world fatigue and playing this many hours in two games back to back I sort of feel the same. Other than that I'm still enjoying it but not sure I'd ever play through again. I would play DLC if they added it otherwise I would consider it done.

    Got my shiny platinum trophy yesterday and it put me into the 13th trophy rank or whatever as well. Took forever to go fro 12 to 13.

    That's cool. Hopefully I get it but doubtful as I never get any emails from them anymore. Never get the end of the year "this is what you played" type or even regular newsletters with discounts.

    Watch out. Was telling a friend today once you get that first platinum you get addicted. The sound of the trophy popping, the shininess. It's glorious!

    Seems like too much work on most modern games. I miss the early 360 days with games with like five achievements.

    Supposely Horizon outsold Uncharted 4 and is PS4 biggest launch ever. Didn't experts predict Horizon will do 8 million sales lifetime? It's on pace to do that number.

    Not that it means much but I bought Horizon but not Uncharted. I'll get to it eventually but didn't feel like playing it yet. Although with the expansion coming maybe I should sooner than later.

    I have to beat Zelda, then I'll come back to this. Great game and a technical masterpiece, but I hope they do a sequel with improvements to the following:

    - AI
    - Environmental Interaction

    It's so good in almost every other area.

    Man, I have no ambition to play this anymore. Good game, but I'm shelving it. Other games own my time.
