We know the old narrative that PC gaming is a waste of time because all the power of PC is held back by games being made for the consoles and that PC is just the same games at higher resolution.
Enter Horizon: Forbidden West, a game hailed as the posterboy for next-gen gaming. Apparently, it showcased what a next-gen consoles could truly do when not bound to a last-gen hardware like the PC is. People were quick to point out how this game would never run on last-gen and used it as an example to mock Microsoft...All was well until it turned out this game is going to be released on PS4.
What happens to the narrative now? If Horizon: Forbidden West can look as great as it does despite being held back by the PS4, were the claims of PC games at max settings being just console games at higher res bogus all along? Or is Horizon: Forbidden West just a higher-res version of its predecessor?
