The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild
I haven't been this excited about a game for a long time. I've always been an absolutely avid, unabashed, and shameless Zelda fanboy. The games can do no wrong, I don't care if it's the "best" (and by 'best' you know I mean Majora's Mask)... I've played them all, on every platform. I loved Phantom Hourglass. I loved Spirit Tracks. I loved Oracle of Seasons. I loved Windwaker. I loved Link's Adventure.
The Breath of the Wild sounds mindblowing. The reviews are giving me shivers. Stuff like this:
"This is it, folks. The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is Nintendo’s Magnum Opus. It’s not only the best Zelda game ever created, it’s also one of the very best videogames in the history of the art. Games like this are so rare that it would be impossible to classify it as anything other than a masterpiece. Experience it at all costs."
"The simple fact is that The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is one of the best games ever made. It marks a turning point for the medium that will be learned from for some time. It is a system seller in every sense of the word, and if you don't already have a way to play it, you owe it to yourself to find one."
"There is no other way to define The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild other than sheer genius. Link's immense and extremely ambitious quest takes the series into new heights, as it introduces elements of survival and item management, bringing new life into a saga that now puts the players in the middle of an open and free roaming adventure, rewarding explorers at every single moment with its beautiful settings and far-reaching worlds. Nintendo has delivered and Breath of the Wild is one of the shiniest stars that could ever light up a new system upon its launch."
"The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild isn’t just good, it’s the best launch title I’ve ever played. It will single-handedly validate the purchase of the Switch for many people, and given the device's $299 price tag that's a huge accomplishment."
I didn't get a pre-order of the Switch but the second I can get one, I'm all in,
