I am so pleased with what they pulled off in HZD both technically and story wise that I'm not even that interested in trying to guess where they might go next, figuring whatever it is will turn out to be better, deeper thought, and more surprising than anything I come up with anyway!

Yes, I know I'm paranoid, but am I paranoid enough?

Anywhere they go with a sequel, I'll follow. This game was that good.

Tuned in, immediately get to watch cringey Ubisoft talking head offering her deepest sympathies to the families impacted by the Orlando shooting while flanked by a man in a giraffe suit and some sort of "horrifically garish neon costumes through the ages" exhibit or something.  We need to stop this fucking planet right now and sort some shit out. -Kail

I'm very late to this party but I picked this up for $40 off of Amazon last week and it totally consumed my life until I finished it. I didn't do a 100% but I may backtrack and do a few things I missed.

Anyway, amazing game. Best of 2017, even better than Persona 5 which I loved and I'm really looking forward to the expansion pack.

I am also very late to this party, but just finished this.  Binge completed the whole thing, with most achievements, in less than a week, heh.  Been a long time since a game did that to me.  While by the end I was ready to finish it and walk away, the experience was great all the way through.  Great looking game, fun combat, and wonderful plot I can find few problems with.

Some final spoiler thoughts, along with a response to this:

I'm playing through the first DLC (The Frozen Wilds) and so far it's not quite living up to the high bar of the base game. I think it's trying to take a lighter tone, and right now I'm in the middle of a quest that's right out of Tomb Raider. Lot's of climbing, big floor puzzles, turning valves, that sort of thing. Going to Spoiler the rest since I may get into plot/discovery stuff...

On the other hand, some of the humor is funny. There is a character that constantly made me laugh at the same time I was wishing they hadn't put him in the game (or at least gave us different dialogue). The environments are still beautiful, the fights interesting (a few new critters too), and they let you upgrade your spear. And it looks like we are going to get some reveals on Silens' background.

To Teleku's spoilered points, also spoilered:
