In Media Res: A Breath Of Fresh Air Amongst Breath Of The Wild

On all the "2017 Game of the Year" lists for video games that I've seen, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild was inwards the well-deserved top spot. I've played some peachy video games this year, besides I think Nintendo hitting it out of the common alongside their latest entries inwards both the Mario besides Zelda franchises for the Nintendo Switch. They both capture everything I've loved well-nigh the games inwards the past, but alongside all the modern video game innovations I've come upwardly upwards to love. Did Breath of the Wild create it better? I'll run out that for people who similar ranking things to the world besides decide, besides instead speak well-nigh something I think Breath of the Wild does really, actually well.

In Breath of the Wild, Hyrule feels similar a fully realized world, to a greater extent than thus than inwards whatever other video game I've played. So much thus that when talking well-nigh the game I've oftentimes described the world, the environs besides the things inwards it, every chip the main graphic symbol inwards the game. Yes, yous play every chip Link, but every flake of the game has yous thinking well-nigh how yous are going to displace about, interact with, besides experience the reason of Hyrule. From your first of all few steps out into the world, yous don't have got trees rendered every chip objects inwards the "background" to await pretty; they are places where yous forage for precious nutrient similar apples, mushrooms, besides acorns (and if yous are lucky a bird's nest alongside eggs or a bee's hive alongside honey!) build weapons from the branches, collect rare beetles from the bark, climb to acquire a expert wages indicate for scouting besides encompass from monsters, or even to chop downwards to collect firewood or build a bridge. And that's but the beginning. If yous haven't seen or played Breath of the Wild, I highly recommend checking it out if yous are able, there's something particular captured inwards this game.

You tin lav acquire anywhere yous tin lav see! I've explored all of that besides more!
We got Breath of the Wild on the 24-hour interval the Nintendo Switch released finally March, besides I played it A LOT. I didn't destination exploring all the content inwards the game, I never do, but I did "defeat Ganon" which is getting a lot further into a game that I oftentimes go. I soundless had a listing of personal objectives I was planning to come upwardly upwards dorsum to, but again, I e'er create (I'm soundless going to destination Knights of the Old Republic someday, ok?!?)

No spoilers, but I didn't acquire the right ending, I'm going to endeavor again...
Fast forrad to this month. Having but played a huge helping of Mario Odyssey (I'm at well-nigh 630 moons collected every chip I write this!) I was thinking well-nigh how wonderful the sense of regain has been inwards the novel Nintendo games I've played. I'm e'er excited to come across other people discovering a game I've loved for the first of all time, besides I was delighted to have got the hazard to ticker both a friend besides my mom experience the first of all few hours of Breath of the Wild inwards the past times times duet weeks. From finding their first of all tree branch to care to running away from an angry club-wielding bokoblin to accidentally setting a land on burn downwardly downwards to hunting around for every finally spell of edible vegetation they could honour to restore their hearts, I loved every min of it. Especially the sense of wonder besides awe every chip they realized the scale of the reason besides their mightiness to comport upon it. Discovering a treasure thorax underwater besides using a newly learned rune mightiness to acquire it, or climbing deportment upwards a cliff to a high indicate instead of taking the longer path around, those moments were such triumphs!

Aww, await at that picayune hero finding his agency inwards the world! 
Watching this made me realize I had gotten to a indicate inwards the game where everything was easy, besides that was role of why my interest had waned. I had a ton of peachy equipment. All the best food. I didn't have got to desperately run around looking for an apple tree tree or care alongside a half broken tree branch anymore, I was a full-fledged hero alongside the Master Sword, besides that's GREAT, but there's a for sure nostalgia to the expert ol' days of hardship my picayune burgeoning hero faced when he emerged from the shrine of resurrection inwards his underwear....

My Champion Link, alongside all his gear!
Then I remembered... THE ISLAND OF DOOM! At some indicate when I was out discovering shrines besides filling out my map I saw an isle out inwards the distance, besides I swam all the agency out there. I didn't soundless know how to usage Korok leaves to propel rafts, nor did I have got a lot of stamina, thus this really was an epic feat. I was thus proud of myself, using many stamina recovering items I carefully cooked upwards to build my agency out at that topographic dot besides I was pose upwardly to savor my discovery. And when I got there.. I heard a voice, besides thus she took away all my stuff!!!!!

Wait, what?! Even my clothes? What is it alongside heroes inwards their underwear Nintendo?
The challenge of the isle was to start from scratch besides scavenge novel supplies, pose items, besides defeat the enemies on the island, inwards your underwear (Side note: my man child thinks it is hilarious that yous tin lav buy a boxer shorts outfit for Mario inwards Mario Odyssey, inwards a ix twelvemonth old's words "because its ALWAYS funny to come across people run around inwards their unders!"). At the time, I solely had a few hearts, besides the experience of scrounging for weapons besides nutrient wasn't filled alongside a whimsical nostalgia yet! So, I tried besides died a few times, which causes yous to start completely over. Then I gave upwards besides marked it on the map, thinking perhaps someday if I was feeling especially completionist I'd come upwardly upwards back. 

So hither I am feeling nostalgic for the struggles of a novel hero, but I don't wishing to start over, so remembering this isle made me think the developers were geniuses. You acquire to have got all the feels of beingness a novel hero, but run along your cool powers besides pump besides stamina upgrades thus it's non actually THAT hard. So, I pose off to acquire endeavor my mitt at survival island!

This quaternary dimension I realized yous tin lav actually but paraglide there.
This is where I land yous how I am thus expert at the game at demo that it was a total cake walk. But it was hard, I died besides started completely from the commencement at to the lowest grade twice. I lost 1 of the ball things yous bespeak to opened upwards the shrine actually far out inwards the bounding main besides sat on the beach for a expert proper noun before my sweetness wife looked it upwards besides found out that it testament respawn if yous campsite on the other side of the island. I nearly jumped upwards besides downwards alongside excitement when I found my favorite nutrient inwards the whole game, a Hearty Durian tree! Then I lamented that to actually usage it I'd bespeak to care my agency to the cooking pot :(

Every finally flake of nutrient was precious again!
Overall, this experience was wonderful. It was similar a breath of fresh air, it totally revitalized my interest inwards the game besides got me thinking well-nigh all the other picayune corners of the reason I had soundless to explore. I was actually happy to acquire all my gear back, but I didn't convey it for granted every chip much anymore. I was picking upwards apples again! I checked out the DLC Season Pass besides 1 of the things available is the Master Trials, which is patently exactly that same shape of experience every chip the Eventide Island survival shrine!

So, I'm inwards my undies inwards 1 case to a greater extent than hunh? *Sigh*
Link inwards his underwear alongside no gear again, but this quaternary dimension for something similar 45 grueling levels of increasing difficulty besides an amazing reward, thus I at demo went besides purchased the season top besides started throwing myself against that wall. I've at demo died several times besides made it like, vi or vii levels in. This is going to live on great! Wish me luck?!
