Horizon Zero Dawn was the centrepiece game at the PlayStation press event. We were taken through a short, live demonstration which was intended—and successfully managed—to whet our appetite. Part way through, the game bugged out and a character fell through the world; this prompted a quick restart and then play proceeded as planned.
One of the sleeper hits for me was For Honor. I already knew of its existence, but hadn’t been paying much attention. Every time it drifted into my radar I noted the apparent slightly-more-serious-than-Chivalry vibe and carried on. But a single five-minute multiplayer match definitely changed my perspective and made For Honor worth noticing.
