Can Horizon help bring boring open world games back to relevance again?
It was stated by Guerrilla Games lead creators that a female protagonist originally worried their team. They figured backlash and a large male demographic would not take Horizon serious enough with a female lead. How they were wrong. Aloy — Horizon’s lead — is further proof that women can be just as strong of a lead and a man. From her caveman-inspired garb to her ratty hair and handcrafted beaded jewelry down to her wicked skills with bow and arrow, Aloy shows her independent ability to take care of herself and her situation: adventure!
