In a gaming genre that has become overly saturated with repetitive game mechanics, open world games like “The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild” are a fresh change of pace.
The biggest effect we see from “Breath of the Wild” is the sense of being able to do whatever you want from the moment you start the game.
The freedom also seeps its way into the main story, as you can do the missions in any order.
The large majority of the fun lies in just exploring the world and finding unique side quests along the way.
Classic Zelda dungeons have been replaced with divine beasts and shrines, bite-sized dungeons found in every corner of the map.
Though not boasting the best graphics in gaming, the crisp and vibrant colors found in this open world give it that unique edge lacking from many other games.
Its exclusivity to the Wii U and Nintendo Switch means only a select group of people will have access to it, but buying a Switch would be worth it just to play this game.
