Because No Man's Sky looked like an amazing game before it's release as well.M1GOmigs wrote: ↑Feb 22nd, 2017 2:39 pmI don't understand why people are surprised at the quality of Horizon, while using Guerilla's history as an FPS developer. I mean, Naughty Dog used to make cartoonish platformers before Uncharted and Last of Us, but nobody ever questioned their pedigree... Killzone was a decent, if unspectacular franchise, but it still showed their team had a lot of technical skill.
Horizon has always looked like an amazing game, ever since its debut a couple years ago. Sometimes developers just get stuck in a genre because they're forced to, and I'm glad they were given the freedom to make some new IP.
Naughty Dog now has a history in that space, they've earned the respect. Gorilla hasn't. It's essentially a whole new thing for them. Like Michael Jordan playing baseball.
