Yet another game playing experience writing thing for my New Year’s resolution experiment, to try to not kill in video games. This time I’ll be talking about having played Forza Horizon 2.
This game was a weird one for me, so before I get into it I want to just state a few things. Firstly, I think the game is capital G, Good. By that I mean it knew what it wanted to be, and the experience it wanted to deliver for the kind of person most likely to play it. It then delivered on that, whole heartedly. Secondly, the game is fun. “Fun” is traditionally a dirty word in design since its meaning is so nebulous. So when I say it now, I mean that the core gameplay felt good, or right. I enjoyed the core act of driving. That being said, I can’t say I care for the experience as a whole. Not bad, just dull.
