    Played it for a bit at a friends house and wow..

    Easily one of the best plafformers I have ever played. There some obvious issues that makez it hard for an objective player to call it a 10/10, but man its one of the most fun games fun games out there.

    Mario and Cuphead...

    Playstation obviously has thr best collection of games but time to throw away knack back into the garbage bin where it belongs.


    Platformers are getting popular again.

    Played the demo at best buy for a few minutes. It was quite impressive. It has so many little cool things / details going on.

    Man it looks amazing but I can't stomach the thought of spending $300 for a Switch to play one fifteen hour game. If the Switch comes with a strong lineup of exclusives for 2018 I might get one then.

    I hate being an early adopter on a console when the hardware is expensive and the game selection is sparse. Though I admit I probably would have bought after the release of Super Mario Odyssey if I thought Zelda Breath of the Wild was anywhere as close to as good as it's hyped up to be (I'm currently playing it on the Cemu emulator and it's a 7/10 at best IMO). But with Zelda not being the game it's hyped up to be I can't buy the console just for Mario. The only hardware that makes sense to buy in the first year is for PC since you have a huge game library and since the best year for any GPU is the first one it's out. CPU and other components are a little more forgiving though.

    I love the climbing, it's probably the best game I have ever played when it comes to exploration. But the combat is pretty boring and they shouldn't have replaced the big dungeons with all those shrines. There is a lot really amazing about BOTW but the game feels unfinished to me without the dungeons and with the lackluster combat. There is no great score like I have come to expect from Zelda games either. It's the most overrated game since GTA IV, though unlike GTA IV, I still think it's a good game. It's just not a 10/10 IMO, or anywhere close to that level. The enemy variety is nonexistent (really, fighting the same guardian in all the combat shrines?) and they went way overboard with the Assassins Creed-esque collectibles.

    BOTW feels like it has the same kind of combat I'd get out of an N64 game. I don't see how it completely overshadowed Horizon Zero Dawn, which had a much more interesting combat system and superior story, though wasn't nearly as good for exploration (though still awesome on that front).

    BOTW is a really unique game, but feels unfinished to me. Of the six Zelda games I have played, I'd probably rank it fifth:

    1. A Link to the Past
    2. Ocarina of Time
    3. Zelda 1
    4. Zelda 2
    5. BOTW
    6. Twilight Princess

    I don't think it's overrated...well, in a sense to some people out there and their craze with the game, it is in that regard. But they needed something different after the fest that was Skyward Sword and the staleness of Ocarina of Time 2, er, Twilight Princess. I thought I would miss the dungeons too but I didn't mind the shrines. It had the puzzles that you could solve any way you want, which I liked. The combat shrines did get boring after you powered up your slate and had more powerful weapons but they were fun at first.

    But honestly, I think the best part of the game is master mode and starting out on the plateau. That was truly difficult and made the game ultra fun to me.

    I don't know man, if something gets 10/10 on every review it's gotta be something completely mindblowing IMO. If it was getting 9 to 9.5 like most really good games get I wouldn't have too much a problem with the hype, but at 10/10 everywhere I was expecting more. I can only think of eight games I would ever rate 10/10 (A Link to the Past is one of them). I just avoid combat in BOTW since it's the same seven or eight enemies in the part of the map I have unlocked (I think I'm only missing one, maybe two towers) and it gets boring. The only enemies I enjoy fighting are those ancient machines with the laser eye where you have to time your shield parry or get your shield destroyed and/or get killed. I forgot what those are called even though I remember them all the way back to A Link to the Past.

    The exploration is there but I just feel the combat isn't, and they both have to be great for me to call a game 10/10 (eg like in Bloodborne).

    The enemy list is a bit small, I'll agree with that. The lynels are fun to attack because there's like 3 or so types of them...like one is an archer, one has a sword club thingy, one has this massive in claymore thing. And I still suck at trying to kill them. The gold enemies in master mode still me up from time to time if they gang up on me. And you're talking about the guardian stalkers. Yeah, I had no idea how to kill them at first. Threw like 50000 bombs at that one in the ruins Have you gone to the castle yet? That place is pretty much one big dungeon full of guardians and is pretty much a maze. One of the best areas of the game imo.

    And nope. that hestu's gift. I think the most seeds I've gotten is around 200 and that's just because I wanted to expand my inventory some more.

    I still dont get concept of the handheld-like controls.

    Nintendo just needs to stop the gimmicks and just make proper controllers for their system.

    My brother has a Wii and I never got used to the stick controllers. Pathetic. lol

    They knew what they were doing with that . The stick controller was great on the motion sensing games. But I'm sure they calculated how many people would then have to buy the "regular" controller for other games.
    But yeah...lol at having to turn the stick sideways.

    Yeah and that regular controller is $70. Nintendo can off with their motion controls. Having to use them on some of the shrine puzzles in Zelda BOTW is so ing annoying.
