Pretty late making this thread since it came out awhile ago, but oh well

Does anyone play Breath of the Wild? If so, what do you play it on?

 

I play on the switch. I beat it awhile ago, but I'm trying to finish most of the side quests right now. I already discovered all 120 shrines but I'm not too big a fan of the tunic of the wild clothing set... I just thought the set bonus would be better.

Don't get me wrong, the game was amazing, but c'mon the end cutscene was disappointing to me... especially watching all the memories prior and then just getting that lame confrontation like wth

 

I'm pretty excited for the extra stuff coming out for the expansion pass!

Pirated it on Wii U.

 

Controls completely sucked. It was a shame that they got Monolith Soft help making a seamless open world but couldn't get their help to create a control scheme that fits an open world game. Xenoblade Chronicles X had much better controls (along with multiple alternate control schemes if you don't like the default).

Man, it's really easy to screw up a game of this size. With how much time and effort you need to perfect it, I'm not surprised its faults show more easily than other Zelda games. That is to say that this was experimental, and I hope they perfect the formulas they threw around here in later games.

 

But besides that this game got me pumped up! I got to explore a ton and see the world, and it deserves all of its praise for being so intuitive and just throwing you out there into the world. I hated how Nintendo parented you in tutorials to unnecessary extremes. World building is important but it's like a burger, smelling it won't do you any good. You really need to sink your teeth into it, but can't with these constant teaching of game mechanics that most casual players can figure out on their own. Aside from that, BotW shows a good tutorial as you're left with little on you, however with weak enemies and the plateau entrapping you, you never feel like it's a drawn out tutorial simply because it wants you to look at the game and get a taste of what it has to offer, not the game wanting to teach you how to play it.

 

I'm mostly using this as an example here, I could write a whole article about what I loved but it's clear that BotW gets their stuff right in that they aren't scared to try something new, and they understand the people playing their games and have us completely in mind when crafting this epic open world adventure. I'm going to go back once the DLC comes out, and replay it all again.

I heard they're going to continue making Zelda games open world like Botw. I kinda liked the traditional style of zelda games though, I'd be kind of sad if all future main zelda games were going to be like botw

What'd yall think of the voice acting?

Everyones hating on Zelda's voice but I kind of liked it. I thought it suited her pretty well.

 

Obviously no voice actor can even compare to Links. I mean his dialogue is absolutely breathtaking. xD

I think the voice acting was awful personally. when I get the dlc Im gonna turn on Japanese voices with English subtitles... really, I don't mind some of their voices but it was sloppy work by quite a few of them. They never take a moment to take a break and they cram dialogue into there, and as someone who's watched dubbed anime and seen good translations it's obvious that they're lacking in that department.
