    Amazing game. Far better than Skyrim or any other game out now. I've heard a lot of people talk about how Horizon Zero Dawn is better and that game looks great as well, but it can't compete with BOTW. The freedom you get and the variety of territory, from sand (Gerudo) to water (Zora. Btw isn't Sidon fantastic? lol) I've completed the game, but I went back to my last save game to explore more. That's the only thing I wish they would add and that's that you could continue after Ganon is defeated. See the aftermath of his defeat. What's great is also the NPC's who respond to a lot more of what is going on. If you drew your weapon in Skyrim people would just walk passed you, pay no attention. Guards would tell you to watch out with your weapon, but in BOTW people respond to a lot more and you meet NPC's a lot more randomly. Certainly the enemies in the game are pretty iconic, especially the Guardians. I like that there are actually two stories going on. It reminds me of A Song of Ice and Fire, where Robert's Rebellion goes hand in hand with the current events, just like the events of a 100 years ago go hand in hand with the current story of the game.

    I've not completed the game, and I am about to start completely over because my friend and I are doing a trade where he buys another switch with Zelda bundled into it and I give him my PS4 that I never use.

    So far I've really loved it. I only got up to the first actual temple (the Zora one), but I love to spend my time running around and exploring so I just get so distracted. I can't wait to finish it because it's such a beautiful and lovely game :heart:

    My favorite Zelda game of all time. I finished everything (Even dlc)...except for all the korok seeds...there are just WAY too many of those. But completed everything else.

    Awesome! The only thing I don't like about it is Zelda's voice for some reason. Starting to get used to it. I can't wait to resume playing when my Switch gets here!

    Btw if you play the game on a PC, you have a mod that allows you to play as Zelda herself. She even has her own outfits, like for the desert, the cold, a gerudo one and etc. She also has her own voice in battle and such. The issue is that characters will still refer to you as Link. I don’t know about the cutscenes like memories. I guess they’re still the same, cause they’re as much Zelda’s memories as Link’s.

    I haven’t tried it yet, but... Yes, but yes in even better quality than the Switch, so I really should give it a go!

    Did they release it or is it like an illegal thing?

    I don’t think it’s legal. LOZ games are Nintendo exclusives.
