Forza Horizon 4 is a magnificent game, one of the year's best, and it cannot be faulted for its scope, its freedom and its celebratory sense of fun. Of course, it's (almost) always better to be too generous than too mean. But the place this game is in, I think, says quite a lot about where game design has ended up in 2018. The content-casino approach of the loot box era lives on - but without the actual loot boxes, and married to the endless diversion expected of open worlds, it leaves us with a heedless, pointless economy of bounty where my time as a player is overvalued, and the hard work of the event designers and asset modellers and feature programmers starts to be devalued, because there will never be time to look at it all. "Never too much," Luther Vandross once sang, but I am not sure the great man was right.

I suppose that's the fantasy - go on a treasure hunt to a remote location, come back rich" - Kind of the point of a place called Fortune Island that has a pirate theme, wouldn't you say?
It's a point that the main game does throw a lot at you as well, but all this being talked about in a review for the expansion just seems a bit... unneeded? And the review itself not even concluding with the thing it's meant to be reviewing... Amazing.
