    Oof, sorry to hear that. Really curious on what exactly you’re doing and where you’re going because that’s definitely not my experience with the game.

    Yeah, I thought there was no wrong way to play this one, but clearly I was mistaken. I'll grant that people have exaggerated how good it is, 'cause it's certainly not flawless like they'd have you believe. But it's also definitely not any of the things that were just described.

    Been tackling BOTW for sometime now and its become quite the great game. Once I found enough Shrines to get enough hearts to get the Master Sword the game got incredibly more fun. This is when it started feeling like a Zelda game.

    With the MS I went and started beating down all the divine beasts (over a few weeks here and there) and getting the power ups from the beasts makes the game even more enjoyable. With all four beasts restored the game is nothing to run around and obliterate basically any enemy, including gaurdians.

    I just finished the memories and got the champion tunac. Gonna keep running around and power up the rest of my armour and probably take down Ganon next weekend. From the sounds of it hes gonna be easy now. I've already scaled almost the entire castle inside and out. The super jump Gail thing is super handy for exploring. I went and got it as soon as I could.

    But yeah, when so first started this game, it was different and hard to enjoy but the more the story pans out, it gets quite more enjoyable.

    Do you think they'll bring back the Color Dungeon in Toy Link's Awakening?

    Big fan here since i got my NES for christmas when it came with Mario/Duckhunt and also got Zelda with it when i was 5 and enjoyed this franchise despite there are a few weak "links" like "Breath of Wild".

    That’s one thing I loved so much about it, that it grows along with you. I super frustrated at first but I just relaxed and found my own pace and it quickly became the most fulfilling video game experience I’ve ever had.

    Still having, actually. I’ve got almost 200 koroks left to find. I’ve only got the patience to find one or two of them per session now.

    got the switch recently and finally finished the game after spending 180 hours on it. its the 1st 3d zelda i've played through (i've finished LTTP, LA and MC - stalled finishing oracles) and really enjoyed the open world gameplay. i dont think its the best in terms of challenge compared to older stuff which is linear, but its a great representation in terms of what ive always imagine zelda would be as a world.

    i struggled early with combat but what kept me going were the world exploration and shrine puzzles. no complaints from me story wise, and i enjoyed the suggested sub plots hinted between mipha-link, urbosa-zelda.

    i also loves me some thicc gerudos lol

    The Gerudo ladies are great. Love all the hidden little things in their town, too (the classroom, the hidden shop, the 'spa' at the inn). I've been playing this since 2017 and it was just yesterday that I discovered what happens when you feed Patricia the sand seal.

    i Got the DLC and thanks to hero's path i can still see there are places i overlook (because i glided over them) even after all those hours and covering all 120 shrines. prolly look around those areas before i actually go into the DLC content.

    Well, it looks like Nintendo is listening to the fans. Not only do they get to cut down on development costs, but we're getting a direct sequel, and what looks like some more story.

    Also, my text to my wife:

    WE'RE GETTING A SEQUEL TO BOTW I AM SO EXCITED

    Dear Nintendo, please bring back proper dungeons and boss variety. Also nix the stamina meter and breakable weapons.

    I'm down, but I want real dungeons this time. No more of those "one room, one puzzle" bullshit shrines.

    And fix the clunky menu with stackable items. Also please do something about the awful knockback. Makes NES knockback look like a lovetap.

    BOTW had good ideas going open world.

    But yes, proper dungeons and more interesting bosses, and enemy variety, would be a nice touch.

    Dark Nuts, Dekus, Peahats and at least Wolfos would be very welcomed additions.

    We've not seen goriyas, pickitts, megmats, those flying mushroom bomb drop thingys, ghinis, moas, dairas, tinsuits, or lowders in 3D yet.

    As far as I'm concerned, they can reuse at least the terrain from BotW (there should be some new things in it, obviously). There should be an all-new map too, but keeping the old areas would let them make a significantly larger game without a significantly larger budget.

    Some of the closed off ruins in BotW would make great places to put new dungeons.
