I am really hyped and ready for this game. The world seems awesome and I can't wait to explore it.

After replaying The Witcher 3 and playing both expansions just a couple months ago. I was kinda burnt out on a big open world RPG. But now I'm really in the mood for it again. So much hype

Do people like the OP?
The spoiler tags feel a little weird, but I like how it condenses things. 

Anything I should add?

I like it. It would be too big without the tags.

I hope that stealth isn't clearly the best way to play the game. I've had enough of stealth games recently, its a type of gameplay I don't like and I can only put up with so much of it. Hopefully the brave skill tree is powerful enough

Actually it's a great OP.

^That platforming in that gif is a step above I've seen in anything so far.   Despite some weird facial animations in the game, Aloy's movement animations are amazing.

This is gonna be a long month waiting for this game!  :'(

^^ gorgeous  :o
I seriously have no idea how they did it.  They exceeded ND as best looking game overall.  They definitely raised the bar in graphics.

It's unbelievable. I can't believe this is open world as well. Guerilla have outdone themselves

It looks so assassin's creed. But that's a great thing. GG have really went all out with gameplay on this. It's just hard to believe sometimes

Where is this from?

Horizon

I am going to have to go back to the Witcher 3 to keep me busy till this game. I am so freaking HYPED. I hope Guerrilla knocks it out of the park and people give them the respect they deserve.

That Decima engine is insane. And Kojima is using this engine for his game.
