Then this video is necessary before you buy either of them.
There is a part 2 on the side of the video.

Nice.

Since i can't get both, Horizon will get the shaft.

Once I'm done with Zelda I will be getting my wife's permission to get a PS4 and Horizon. There is no reason to be a fanboy of any system, and I've been saying for years I'm just waiting on that one game that I both want to play and can't play elsewhere.

this video really makes Horizon look like a dud...

i mean, the game is pretty, sure, but it seems so lifeless for what is supposed to be an open world game.

I'm interested in Horizon because I hear it has a good story. Something BotW lacks.

I recommend watching both parts as they really drive home the difference between the two games:

Most of the comparison is pointless because of game design but damn you'd think they'd give Horizon some physics (especially that fire arrow part) for how technologically advanced it is.

Nintendo has always been incredible at making their games beautiful for their corresponding graphical styles, but rarely if ever do they capture some of the modern beauty that people have come to expect for other systems.

I would say HZD is one of the most beautiful games ever made. BoTW is gorgeous but I wouldn't exactly call it "beautiful".

And yet none of these "details" had made me enjoy Horizon any less. It's an amazing and beautiful game more in the vein of the newer Tomb Raider games or Uncharted, not Skyrim, which is what I see BotW mimicking.
