Just got my EVGA RTX 3080 Ultra FTW3. Did a performance test in the game with their built in test.

This is at 4K 3840 x 2160 Rez everything at Ultra settings.

2080 Super gave me a score of 8240 43 FPS Average.

3080 gave me a score of 10778 59 Average.
Congrats on the 3080, they're still crazy hard to find. What CPU/RAM do you have? I just wanted to mention that with my 3080 FE I'm getting 77 fps in HZD (14020 score) with all settings maxed (screenshot - colors may look off, because it was taken with HDR on). I only mention it because I would expect that you should be getting higher than that, and you might want to look into it.

If you think that the lore in the Elders Scrolls is not interesting then you are beyond help. It is literally the most interesting part of the Elder Scrolls games, it provides a backstory and rich worldbuilding that is normally not found in most fantasy novel series. Reading about an artifact and actually finding that artifact in game? Those are some of the best moments in RPG history....(I agree that Skyirm was probably the most dumbed down game of the lot, but the lore is still strong in that one)

Have you even played either game? Not that Skyrim wasn't fun but there was no depth to that game at all. The story was... well the less said about the main story, the better. HZD had a much more interesting story and lore.

Going to have to disagree with you here. Skyrim was far more entertaining, while Horizon just has limited gameplay.

I do not get the big deal so many attach to 4k. I personally think that throwing away 2k for one of the new video cards and a decent 4k monitor is beyond ridiculous. I can think of far better places to spend that kind of money. I do 2k on decent settings with older video card technology and the difference is really not that much worse than with 4k.

Personally I loved it myself. The story was good and Aloy was such a likeable protagonist.

Steev, you thought Aloy was a downer? I always thought she was WAY too optimistic, considering the world she lives in.

HZD’s world is pretty damn cool, and the story was fantastic. Yes, like ANY open world, the 100% completion stuff is tedious. But I’m stupid-excited for the sequel.

Well, I thought there was some weird disconnect going on. She was more optimistic in conversations with others, but when she was by herself in the wilderness, it was a mope fest. Sighs, complaints, etc. Maybe it was the voice actress just rubbing me the wrong way.

And yes, I don't at all like hunting down collections of statues, pottery, metal flowers, etc. To me, the only thing that accomplishes is pulling me out of the story. I agree the story was good, but I'd say the voice acting wasn't. You're right, it was a beautiful world, and from what I've seen of the sequel it's only going to get better. Also, the developers have the first one under their belts, and it was a success, so maybe this time they can make that beautiful world a little deeper. I'm excited for it, too, just not near as much as I am for Cyber, Starfield, and hopefully before I die, ElderScrolls 6.

Yep, played 'em both. HZD only once, Skyrim still to this day. I'll agree that the main plot of Skyrim had no depth, but to say the game itself has no depth is just not true. I think most open world games really miss the mark that Skyrim hits. As big as the world is, it pales in comparison to the combined space of all the caves, forts, ruins, etc. Not to mention the entire snow elf underworld.

I love how complex the combination of smithing/enchanting is. I love how your weapon swings are slow and cumbersome if you aren't yet at a high level with it. I love all the books you can read, even. The lore is just fantastic. The sound effects in dwemmer ruins. The plethora of factions you can join.

All of this was done more than 10 years ago, and hasn't really been surpassed by anybody since, imo. Skyrim had plenty of depth, but you had to go look for it.

Ok fair enough. Skyrim does do some things well, and I wouldn't even call HZD a better game, but it does seem weird to compare HZD and Skyrim in that way when they are very different games that focus on different things. Skyrim is more of an exploration sandbox game while HZD is much more narrative driven. I didn't enjoy the lore in Skyrim much (and yes I forced myself to read through the lore books as I went through) while I found HZD to be much more interesting and original. But yes, the Dwemer ruins in Skyrim (and before that, in Morrowind) were indeed something special.

Heh, I remember the first time I went in to a dwemer ruin in Morrowind. One of my best gaming memories of all time. That sense of wonder was amazing, and I don't know if anything has been as awe inspiring for me in gaming since.

I guess my issue with HZD was that at first, I thought it was amazing. The first time I climbed up a tallneck was great. It just seemed that over the course of the entire game, things just got stale. In Skyrim, I was fighting bears, mudcrabs, trolls, sabertooth tigers, frost spiders, bandits, dwemer, falmor, nord undead, dragons, ghosts, pirates, mages, atronochs, etc...but in HZD, just robot dinosaurs and the occasional human. Also, when I went into a cave with knowledge from the past, the caves seemed small without much interactivity. And I thought Alloy was a downer, always complaining about her wet boots and whatnot. Maybe it's not fair to compare the two game types. They are both open world though. To me, it felt like HZD wanted to be skyrimlike. I don't know, I just got bored.

This game bored my socks off, it seems pretty cool at first then it just turned into an Ubi-fest. Ironically, I find both Odyssey/Valhalla more entertaining to play.

Yeah, I watched some livestreams of people playing and thought it looked rather grindy and repetitive. Just having an interesting environment isn't enough.
It can be if you want to 100% the achieves and collections and beef up the weapons and stuff. But none of that is needed.
If you just want to beat the great main story which is the best part of the game I think you can do that in like 20-30 hours. On the default difficulty you can brute force most of the robots (maybe a tinge of strategy). And you can get the best parts of the story with the least amount of grinding by skipping the expansion (expansion was a bit more grindy).

Only on expert is it really needed to get into the exact tuning of weapons and apparel to match your opponent, learn all the patterns so you can dodge everything that will one hit you, etc. Spend a while knocking certain parts off each robot in a certain pattern with certain weapons before switching to other weapons to hit other parts. Probably on expert complete everything is more like 100+ hours

It's a shame they launched in such poor shape. I was looking to buy it day one, but, now it's a bargain pickup at best. Have too much else on the plate to have to worry about if it's going to work or not.

Nice to know I can get it from GOG when I do grab it though.
