Louis Hughes’ Favorite Games of 2017
The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild (Switch)
Developer: Nintendo Entertainment Planning & Development
Here’s a game that the world waited for when a teaser was released during Nintendo’s Digital Event of E3 2014. Nintendo knew they had a hit when the internet takes twenty seconds of gameplay and explores every second of it. Heck, we here at GameReviewPad did a whole podcast (discussion) when the game was showed off at E3 2016. After the success of The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds, Nintendo got the message that fans want a Zelda game that doesn’t hold your hand. In fact, what we got with The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is what fans wanted in a Zelda game for a long time. This is coming from someone who didn’t get into the Zelda franchise tillThe Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time.
Many feel that this game could change how the open-world genre is done. I don’t believe so, as the game has you work to discover the story and some don’t have the time for exploration and just want the story handed to them. Other than that, I’m thankful Nintendo has finally decided to try new ideas, and by the looks of it (Super Mario Odyssey), I’m looking forward to what they will try next. *Cough* Metroid Prime 4 and Pokémon Switch *Cough*
