          It's not the job that makes it more fulfilling. It's the things you can buy with the money earned from your labor. Like experiences or even more video games!

          When you achieve something in a video game, you get a digital pixel on your screen that's even worse than a pat on the back. The things you get from pursuing a hard achievement are valid (perseverance, problem solving, planning etc) but they would be more beneficial to you as an individual if spent on learning a new skill or pursuing a goal.

            the question really is if 100%ing games is indeed entertaining or fun for the person in question, or is it a compulsion? For certain people with autism, I could see them genuinely enjoying the tedium. then I could see a lot of people maybe with some sort of OCD not enjoying it at all and doing it anyway. then for most people, its clearly not worth it because its tedious and usually doesnt have a meaningful reward, especially considering the game is 100% complete, theres nothing meaningful for a reward to impart in almost all cases

            I had fun 100%ing the spyro games, but it was pretty easy and nostalgia was a driving factor. 100%ing a ubisoft game or botw sounds like pure unfun autism. but I do like the korok puzzles in botw, it gives something to do and a reason to explore with some rewards involved, but theres no reason to do all of them compulsively

            And expert mode is a huge fix over what master mode offers.

            >instead of regenerating HP, enemies actually hit harder and have completely different AI
            >better rewards and changes to mechanics like damage offset from armor bonuses

            Ironically, when Terraria's master mode aped Zelda's master mode, people didn't like it too much. Expert was just so much better designed. How ironic. Don't even get me started on the custom seeds.

        In my 150 hour playthrough I found about 200. Which wasn't even enough to max out my inventory but still enough for me to feel like a worthwhile haul.

        I can't imagine how many hundreds of hours it would take someone to find all 900. Thats not what they're for. Its like trying to collect all the rings in Sonic. God bless Nintendo for mocking these autistic retards.

        Then why aren't there 400? Why do you "need something to grab" if they stop having a use? Isn't that Ubishit design, making it so you need a shiny trinket to justify exploring something, instead of just enjoying the trip? If BOTW had faith in its world, it would barely even have korok seeds. Just exploring would be its own reward.

            If they're not willing to explore, they don't deserve inventory upgrades. Stop holding their hand for once. This is exactly why they implemented weapon durability, is it not? If you're just gonna constantly pad the game so they never once experience hardship, then you might as well just give them godmode and unbreakable weapons. Clearly you have no faith in the player to experience even the slightest hardship.

                The "correct" way to play is to make the player experience hardship. If you're not gonna explore, you don't deserve upgrades.

                Look at Super Metroid. Should every single powerup be right in the player's face, because exploring would be too "toxic"? The player can't be expected to pull off bomb jumping or shine sparking, so just make them easily accessible? Is that the kind of game design you want?

                You barely need to know how to bomb jump or shinespark in super metroid. All that does is gate a 100% completion, not a completion of the game. You're also definitely forgetting just how much missile upgrade or E-tanks are just a shot and a jump away from grabbing. Kinda like the korok seeds. Also by the way, exploring is not hardship.

          Zelda has always been about exploration, retard. Just because BotW only lightly nudges you in certain directions instead of entirely bottlenecking you with item locked progression doesn't make it some kind of radical departure from the series. Focusing on that one tiny thing as the essence of Zelda games is completely arbitrary and kind of dumb.

                The real problem with BotW is that after around 150 hours you've seen and done pretty much everything the game has to offer and it does feel empty. But people forget how much content there was when you were first exploring, in the form of unique encounters or environmental puzzles (in addition to shrines/towers/korok seeds/story events). In a game like GTA it's still fun to drive around and fight the police after you've 100%ed everything, and in a game like ES you can always make a new character and play the game differently, but in BotW once you've done everything there's nothing really left other than fighting the same enemies that respawn with the blood moon, which is old by that point. I think that's the reason people get so upset about koroks. At a certain point that's all that's left to do in the game but blindly hunting for them is really boring and tedious if that's all there is.

                I definitely feel that, so i put the game down rather than forcing myself to hunt down all the koroks. I found 120 shrines without using a guide and as far as i was concerned that was "100%ing" the game. Getting every Korok seed felt to me like if someone playing Mario World had said "you haven't 100%d the game unless you collected every single coin".

              Zelda II from Zelda I was an absolutely radical departure. A completely different genre of game.

              Likewise with OoT. Don't let the fact that that all the Zelda games to come were to some degree or another modelled after OoT fool you, but OoT is not and never was just ALttP in 3D.

              In a lot of ways MM has more in common with the likes of Moon: Remix RPG Adventure and games of that kind than it does with other Zelda games.

              SS doesn't even have an overworld and is the most railroaded and handholdy Zelda game in the history of the franchise and by a significant margin at that. Especially when compared to the franchise's origins. From this perspective it's actually very easy to argue that SS is actually staunchly anti-Zelda in its design.

              But no. Of course it's BotW that's staunchly anti-Zelda, because it follows the open ended exploration that has been a core element of the franchise since its conception (ignoring SS). Elements that were especially core around the franchise's conception at that.
              BotW is like the first game to handle secrets in a similar manner to the original Zelda game since Zelda II.

    The game never incentivizes you get all the korok seeds.
    The fact that the korok seeds stop doing jack shit for you after you've gotten a third of them, should tell you more than enough that the game and its devs coudn't care less if you actually got all of them anyway.

      This. Korok puzzles are scattered around the overworld so you'll have something to do in between your longer treks to different landmarks, which naturally expand your inventory as you accumulate them. Additionally, by first finding Hestu at the plot-relevant Kakariko Village and then later at the Riverside Stable you learn how to use Korok Seeds to expand your inventory, something highly desired and valuable, and thus after he leaves these locations you will be incentivized to seek him out, and thus reach Korok Forest, and by proxy the Master Sword.

      It's a fluid system that naturally aids the player as the game scales with the player's mostly non-linear path, and Hestu's Gift is just the devs throwing in a joke for the dedicated players who really should've beaten the game and moved on already.

            Not that guy, but Hestu is extremely easy to miss.
            Yes BotW is about exploration, but if you don't enter Kakariko from the south path road, and instead enter from the west, north, or even east side of the village, you have little reason to explore the south road that is completely void of visible landmarks or any intriguing features.
            Even under the assumption that 100% of the world map is worth exploring, the south road would still place itself as a very low priority section.

            And there are no hints or anything guiding you towards Hestu after that point. Nothing at all. Hestu is mentioned by name once when you find your first Korok, but no direction or suggestion as to where to find him is given. There isn't even any hints as to what Hestu is or what he can do you for you.

            Hestu kind of stands out like a sore thumb in this way.
            The master sword is spoken about, with hints to its location, at every divine-beast town in addition to a few other places.
            The ancient tech labs, and their rune upgrades and gear manufacturing capabilities are spoken about and advertised numerous locations throughout the game. Beedle, who is all over the map, will even go as far as give you a literal free sample ancient arrow alongside a brief ad.
            The DLC stuff, hamfisted as it is, is shoved in your face with the word-of-god quest revelations that are then added to your log.

            But Hestu is only mentioned once. With no hints given. And is hidden away at the corner of one specific road. And the only measure the game has to 'guide' players towards him is that said road happens to be between the Plateau and Kakariko. But that also means that if the players head anywhere else but Kakariko from the Plateau, or doesn't walk the straight path there. Then Hestu is extremely missable.

            Is till love BotW though. An unironic 10/10 as far as I am concerned. And I'd dare claim this is one of the game's most blatant design flaws.

              Not really. You'd have to try very hard to intentionally go in a completely different direction from literally the first and only real "go here" prompt in the entire game. I probably spent 10 hours getting from the plateau to Kakariko because I kept going off path and getting distracted by different things, but I still ran into Hestu because Kakariko is surrounded by giant cliffs and you'd have to go WAY out of your way to approach it from a different route.

                Yes BotW is about exploration, but if you don't enter Kakariko from the south path road, and instead enter from the west, north, or even east side of the village, you have little reason to explore the south road that is completely void of visible landmarks or any intriguing features.
                Even under the assumption that 100% of the world map is worth exploring, the south road would still place itself as a very low priority section.

                And there are no hints or anything guiding you towards Hestu after that point. Nothing at all. Hestu is mentioned by name once when you find your first Korok, but no direction or suggestion as to where to find him is given. There isn't even any hints as to what Hestu is or what he can do you for you.

                Hestu kind of stands out like a sore thumb in this way.
                The master sword is spoken about, with hints to its location, at every divine-beast town in addition to a few other places.
                The ancient tech labs, and their rune upgrades and gear manufacturing capabilities are spoken about and advertised numerous locations throughout the game. Beedle, who is all over the map, will even go as far as give you a literal free sample ancient arrow alongside a brief ad.
                The DLC stuff, hamfisted as it is, is shoved in your face with the word-of-god quest revelations that are then added to your log.

                But Hestu is only mentioned once. With no hints given. And is hidden away at the corner of one specific road. And the only measure the game has to 'guide' players towards him is that said road happens to be between the Plateau and Kakariko. But that also means that if the players head anywhere else but Kakariko from the Plateau, or doesn't walk the straight path there. Then Hestu is extremely missable.

                Is till love BotW though. An unironic 10/10 as far as I am concerned. And I'd dare claim this is one of the game's most blatant design flaws.

                >the only measure the game has to 'guide' players towards him is that said road happens to be between the Plateau and Kakariko
                And as much as it is true that you get a Kakariko waypointer from the Plateau, BotW is also the game that was advertised very strongly and prominently with the premise of "after the plateau, you can go anywhere. You can even head straight to the final boss if you so wish.", and let's not forget how the Kakariko objective you get after speaking with the king isn't the only objective you get. At the very same time you get a "Destroy Ganon" objective at the same time.
                Even the king frames the Kakariko objective as but a suggestion that could assist you with the latter. It's never framed as something you actually need to do. And you don't need to do it. But if you don't head from the Plateau to Kakariko, chances are good you won't travel up the road with Hestu.

              Not really. You'd have to try very hard to intentionally go in a completely different direction from literally the first and only real "go here" prompt in the entire game. I probably spent 10 hours getting from the plateau to Kakariko because I kept going off path and getting distracted by different things, but I still ran into Hestu because Kakariko is surrounded by giant cliffs and you'd have to go WAY out of your way to approach it from a different route.

              Literally missed him my first playthrough and had a giant stack of seeds hours and hours in until I googled how tf to upgrade inventory.

                I tried entering from the east and got fucked, so I went south instead. Like other anons said, you're extremely likely to enter from the South if you haven't met him yet because of the way the map is designed.

                From the east? That whole sunken canyon part with the water really, really funnels you towards the east village entrance. And the fairy fountain at that. A trek from the north is also likely to have you end up at the east or west entrances. And that's if you actually care to follow paths and all and not just climb from the north rockface, which isn't even that difficult of a climb and can be done with zero stamina upgrades. And if you have trekked across Hyrule Field and travel east, the west entrance is pretty much wide open. The shallow waters west of the town are so open that you can see the entrance from far away.

                So I don't really get you to be honest. If you travel from the south then the steep elevation would naturally funnel you onto the south road. But again, that's only if you actually travel from the south.

    It was the first time I started disliking the nintendo fanbase here. When before they were the best group on Ganker by far and just loved games and had some of the best threads.

      If you'd actually played the game you'd understand that both things can be true at the same time. I put in about 180 hours on my first playthrough and didn't even have enough seeds to max out my inventory. I would stop and get the korok seed any time I saw what looked like one, and if I turned on hero's path my map was basically completely covered. While it does feel like they are everywhere and you're constantly running into them just by exploring, actively searching out every single one is not the same thing as leisurely exploring. It would take a complete autist and would remove any of the fun and "charm" from the game.

    It doesn't make fun of completionism, it makes fun of internet guide readers. The only way the average person is going to get all seeds in that world map, in a reasonable amount of time, is by consulting the internet for guides, which is playing the game in a spirit opposite to the spirit of adventure. i.e. instead of just letting the experience unfold organically, you have to be some kind of autist who checks wikis and reads online guides to control freak every facet of the experience and make sure you didn't miss anything and nothing happened organically. This is what the game makes fun of and honestly it should, this fromdrone wiki and guide shitter mentality is directly opposite to just putting a game in and getting lost in its world and adventure.

Hell friends of mine capped out at 1 divine beast and yet still claim the game is amazing. Forget 100%, people can't even be assed to finish it, even when they could run to the final boss at any time.

    tbh what I love about BOTW is how aggressively anti-NPC and anti-zoomer it is.
    The golden shit is just the prize you get for being a retard conditioned to chase the next dopamine hit. Were it any other game it'd be just as meaningless of a reward (e.g. primos in Genshin), but BOTW is the only one with the balls to tell you you're a fucking tool.

      I honestly don't believe that zoomers even enjoy playing video games. They enjoy the culture around it and the fact that it's their only "real" form of socializing. If they can't get achievements that their online friends can see they don't see the point, and they look up a guide or walkthrough for everything before even starting the game. That's assuming they even play the game. It seems like most of them just watch other people stream the games so that they can be "in the know" and talk about whatever fomo shit everyone else is talking about at the moment.

        Read the thread, retard. It isn't some quantitative difference where some people just "like the game more". Actively hunting for all the korok seeds is a qualitatively different experience from everything else in the game, and involves following a guide to meticulously go from point to point on the map seeing if you've already found each seed. I upgraded all the armor sets in the game, which was kind of tedious, but still fun. I also wore the korok mask for my last 20 or so hours playing, and still didn't find enough seeds to completely upgrade my inventory. You can grind in an RPG to get all your stats to max level and find it fun because you enjoy the gameplay, but hunting koroks in BotW is not what the gameplay is about.

Then when everything was discussed to death these daily contrarian threads started popping up with a few anons trying to change the narrative. But the things they criticize the game about aren't really the same things that everyone who played the game criticized it for, so it's really obvious that they're just shitposting.

                If I liked the last game, then naturally I am by default inclined to view the next product favourably unless shown something to make me think otherwise.

            They've been doing all that with the Switch, starting at the tail end of the Wii U after Iwata died. Paid online, day 0 dlc, gachashit, season passes, physical dlc, etc. They're trying to reach EA levels of fuckery and I'd argue in some ways have surpassed them.

All only as a lazy desperate excuse for Nintendo to try and fill the world with something.

      >Literally everything about korok seeds is dogshit when thought about for even a second.

      No you're a moron. Korok seeds are the greatest collectable in any video game ever.

      Korok Seeds work so much better than similar ideas in other open world games.

      Take Spider-Man on PS5 for example. You have Peter's backpacks to find, essentially that game's idea of the korok content - a little easter egg hunt with provides you with credit to updgrade your stats and shit.

      As is typical with most open world games, finding these backpacks is a chore. It involves nothing. They are lit up on your map and you just push your character there and press a button when you get there. That's it. Its NOTHING.

      Nintendo, on the otherhand, understand game design far better than most. They gamify the concept. You aren't told where the koroks are. *YOU* find them all on your own. They aren't lit up on the map. Finding them is usually a subtle psychological test because your brain is programmed to question things which seem odd or out of place. So natural curiosity will pull you towards them - your focus constanly on the visable world in front of you rather than constantly looking at your minimap - and when you get there will some puzzle to do. Simple as fuck puzzles yes, but at least its SOMETHING rather than NOTHING.

      Straight away Nintendo takes this tired and loathsome open world trope and turns it on its head, makes it engaging and rewarding and ultimately tied to the core gameplay concept - exploration.

      Its subtle shit like this which puts Nintendo head and shoulders above every other developer on the planet - an understanding of what makes video games video *GAMES*. And its the kind difference that uneducated plebs, like yourself, cannot wrap their heads around because they don't understand the craft of designing games.

          >I SHOULD GET 100% BY FOLLOWING A GUIDE AND THAT'S THE END OF IT
          Strawman. I never said that. There should at least be an unlockable in-game that points you towards the nearest korok seed after you get so many. And no, the mask that activates when you're very close to one already doesn't count.

            Rings literally unlock the ability to both attempt a bonus stage to get a Chaos Emerald and your ability to use Super Sonic. It's the same kind of collectible: there's a ton around the level, but you only need some of them for your reward.

              NTA, but he's right. Collecting a bunch of rings grouped together by naturally going through a level quickly is far different design from a giant ass open world where you slowly get one seed at a time and isn't just one of the few types of content in the game, it is by far the most numerous. Not to mention tediously going around collecting every ring in a level will reward you with more lives and points and eggman won't descend from the sky and take a shit in your hands for it.

              No, my argument is that the system could be better. Again, you're misconstruing my argument as a more fallacious one so that you can easily "beat" it. Stop with the fucking straw men, and let me spell out my exact argument for you:

              >However, there should STILL be a method for legitimately obtaining all of the collectables in-game in a rational way (ex: in-game compass as a reward for collecting so many)
              >Gating a unique unlockable (even if it's just an easter egg) behind the need to collect every single one of 700 items in the game
              >900 is a ridiculous number of collectables to implement, even if you only need 441 for all unlocks (which is still a ridiculous number) -- this could easily be cut into 1/4, with upgrade requirements being cut into 1/4 correspondingly
              >Finally, the korok challenges are very repetitive. Apart from 1 or 2 special ones, there are only 4 or 5 variations in the entire game:
              >>Put thing in hole
              rock art
              >>Pop balloons

                "900 Koroks is too many" is perfectly understandable. "Koroks shouldn't be as copy paste" is as well. My contention is with the idea that players should be incentivized to collect every Korok. The Koroks are supposed to incentive exploration and give players a sense of progression regardless of how they tackle the game. Tying some meaningful reward behind 100% Korok completion undermines the entire point. Now you're exploring FOR Koroks instead of Koroks being a boon for exploring. The Koroks are now the actual objective. The idea that the game should reward you for doing this when you are actively missing the point of the system is stupid. They made the 100% reward a piece of shit for a reason. They actively dislike the idea of players prioritizing checklisting over exploring the world itself, and they'll let you do it if you want to but also want you to know how they feel about it.

                Why mock players for wanting to play the game a way that many players are BOUND to want to play? It's not fun collecting all 900, but people will still do it anyway. Why not just make it easier for everyone? I don't have a problem with the system of "more available than required" -- I have a problem with the system of "WAYYYYYYY more available than required which is ALREADY a huge number, and also your reward is shit lmao fuck you for enjoying the game this way"

                Why mock anything stupid? People will do stupid things.

                Hence one of the many reasons why the seeds were shit design. That's really the core of all this, that the seeds sucked ass. Wanting to 100% a game is something many players do. Seeds are a shitty obstacle in the way of that and when players do forge ahead for whatever reason, Nintendo, knowing that their seeds sucked ass, mocks them for it.

                They are not. Koroks are unique. While they may fall into 5 or 6 different categories, they're all pretty much different and the topography of the landscape makes the discovery of each unique to the player. You clown shoes moron.

                You're not fooling anyone ACfag.

                For those who don't know, he has wasted years of his life seething about BotW every day for half a decade striaight. He has no way to counter-argue the game's overwhelming acclaim and success. So now he has adopted this new strategy over the past few years;

                >I-I really like the game guys. I really do like it. I-I'm a fan too.
                >HOWEVER...

                He tries to pretend he's on the side of fans of the game by paying lipservice to it before attempting "constructive criticism", by way of offering "fixes". He never expands on what he likes about the game. Because its a lie. He's just trying to deflect attention away from himself and onto the game. Its a ruse to dismantle any attempt to discredit the ridiculous bullshit opinions and shit ideas he will now put forth. Afterall, he "liked" the game, right? So any attack on him now would just make those people seem unreasonable.

                He then puts forth his nonsense suggestions to "fix" BotW - as if his intentions are in the best interest of the game.

                But he's really trying to plant seeds of doubt. He wants you to admit the game is somehow "broken" and needs to be "fixed" - that it didn't deserve the praise and success it received. He thinks if he can convince people that the game is somehow flawed - that BotW isn't as great an achievement as everyone believes it to be - he thinks he has "won". A small victory. But a victory nonetheless.

                Its as transparent as it is childish. Nobody ever falls for it.

                We would all love to see ACfag march into any game development studio, proudly beating his chest and declaring he knows how to "fix BotW". He would get laughed out the fucking door.

                Is BotW perfect? No. Nothing is perfect. But BotW is pretty close. It does not need "fixed". It is considered one of the greatest video games of all time.

                All ACfag can do is seethe for another 6 years.

                Because the map is fucking huge anon. No one wants to run around and jump into every pond, no one wants to place an apple on every statue. Koroks are plentiful only because there a bonus, not an objective. If you had to collect them all, it would be fucking annoying to locate them all and you would practically need a guide. But with 900 they're so plentiful you run into them all the time, allowing you to get inventory upgrades without having to pick up every fucking rock and placing it on a circle.

                You don't seem to understand the game at all. "Freedom" is a huge selling point of BotW. Nintendo can't predict what the player will do or where they will go. THAT is why is there is so many. The player will naturally find enough no matter where they will go.

                In my 150 playthrough I found about 200. Not enough to max out my inventory but still enough to make me fell I had a worthy haul. How many HUNDREDS of hours would it take to find all 900? WHY would you even do that?

                Why is simple fucking game design BEYOND you?

                Because the map is fucking huge anon. No one wants to run around and jump into every pond, no one wants to place an apple on every statue. Koroks are plentiful only because there a bonus, not an objective. If you had to collect them all, it would be fucking annoying to locate them all and you would practically need a guide. But with 900 they're so plentiful you run into them all the time, allowing you to get inventory upgrades without having to pick up every fucking rock and placing it on a circle.
                Let go of your autism.

                >Why put them in the game then? What's the point of adding collectibles that will remain uncollected? It's as retarded as designing levels that will remain unplayed.

                You don't seem to understand the game at all. "Freedom" is a huge selling point of BotW. Nintendo can't predict what the player will do or where they will go. THAT is why is there is so many. The player will naturally find enough no matter where they will go.

                In my 150 playthrough I found about 200. Not enough to max out my inventory but still enough to make me fell I had a worthy haul. How many HUNDREDS of hours would it take to find all 900? WHY would you even do that?

                Why is simple fucking game design BEYOND you?

                Players do not deserve inventory upgrades unless they go out of their way to find them. That's why there should be less koroks. If you don't find any naturally, and you don't feel the need to explore a bit harder, then go screw yourself. You get NOTHING.

                Same reason why weapons break on you. So you never feel content or safe in the wild. At any moment you could run out of weapons, and knowing that you have a limited inventory will make you think before blindly charging into a fight. What point is there if the game showers inventory upgrades on you, and you can hoard junk by the thousands? It's why I also hate the inventory system for regular items, and why it's retarded that you can hold 3 pages of healing items (which is more than every single other zelda game COMBINED).

                The game bored me to death because I never felt challenged, and it's even more boring if I have to impose a challenge on myself. That's not fun.

BotW was good enough to be worth doing one more time, maybe after that we’ll get another change or another OoT format, who knows. Either way you’re going to be angry though because you’re a s0nygger wearing Groucho glasses that actually thinks his disguise is working.

I had all the hype in the world for botw and even after it being one of the biggest disappointments for me yet in this hobby I still gave its sequel the benefit of the doubt. And now with every new showcase of that sequel I'm reminded that modern nintendo doesn't care about making games anymore, only the money the make from them and their sheep will mindlessly gobble it up without question like pokemon or animal crossing. That's what makes these threads and the retards bending over backwards defending literally everything so irritating.

        It is fun. I cannot think of a more fun adventure game.

        >instead of insulting the players

        If you take the time to find all 120 shrines, you get the iconic Green Tunic.
        If you find all 900 koroks, you get Hestus Gift. I wish I had Hestu's Gift but I don't have that kind of commitment. Cool bragging rights and sign of a hardcore gamer. You act offended for no rational reason.

        What a mentally ill little shit you are.

              No joke, this thread actually made me want to continue my current playthrough. The exhileration of riding a mysterious minecart through the darkness, finding a chest with an item I'll ALWAYS be able to use (IE if I have a mirror, and I find another one, I just sell it) and then I find an ore vein of gold.

              According to you, I shouldn't be able to sell a single thing that I find in this game. If I find duplicates of these hermes boots, they should rot in my inventory forever because having multiple uses is "bad game design". And to that I heartily chuckle.

                But you can't. You're too obsessed with BotW. You continue to waste every day of your life seething over BotW.

                For one reason:

                BotW is considered one of the greatest video games of all time.

                Terraria never will be. By anyone. Ever.

                It just eats you up.

                Isn't Terraria considered one of the greatest games of all time too? I remember when it came out I completely forgot about Minecraft and thought it was way more fun. I was like 14 and also used an item editor to get myself the hero's set. My character was obviously named Link lol, good times

    You people are fucking crazy I swear, I honestly don't know any game that this board has been so obsessed with. Not even stuff like Dark Souls or RE4 is discussed as much here. I mean Zelda as a series is a big part of the vidya world but give it a rest. Will you be flicking shit at each other when the new one comes out in May too?

    The only time I regretted not searching for the seeds (I shit you not I found like 7 and I played BoTW for like 100 hours) was during the sword trials when I didn't have enough weapon slots. Those trials are harder than anything in any Zelda game except for the first two NES titles

        You have it backwars. Its popular because its good.

        If BotW sold 10 copies it would STILL be one of the most acclaimed games in history.

        You can't tell the difference between 2D and 3D.

              I have a question for you; why is it when anyone anywhere in the talk about the greatest video games of all time, BotW is always at the top of their lists but nobody even mentions Terraria.

              Why is that? What's going on? Do they not consider Terraria a real game?

              >I have a question for you; why is it when anyone anywhere in the talk about the greatest video games of all time, BotW is always at the top of their lists but nobody even mentions Terraria.
              Quite literally an appeal to popularity. But then again, I'm giving you too much credit by expecting you to have a memory beyond that of a goldfish.

                Who calls BOTW "the best game of all time"? The same people who praise Elden Ring or the Witcher? Games you said were "so bad that they weren't fit to lick the shit from BOTW's boots"? Golly, sounds like these acclaimed people aren't worth listening to.
