Pokemon, too many, too fast?

(The question that everyone has heard or thought!)
As far as the most popular gaming franchises goes, next to game series such as Super Mario Bros, Call of Duty, and many more is Pokemon, the yellow fever that caught all of us at one point. That amazing game in which instead of being a hero of a medieval era, you are a kid with the power of capturing creatures instead of only using them as Exp pigs, it was new, it was fresh! 120 monsters for us to capture, train and trade in order to become the only one, the best that ever was!

(Pretty cute, but stillm too many of them?)
Pokemon quickly gained fame, grabbing us by the heart; easily becoming of the biggest videogaming phenomes! However, that also meant one thing, Gamefreak and Nintendo would milk the miltank out of it; many new generations came and yeah, they were amazing and still are; though this doesn’t mean that they were perfect, obviously many changes came and many fans disliked this. And one complain out of them all, was that there…

7 reasons why Breath of the Wild is WAY BETTER than you thought


For years, we have been asking for a new 3D Zelda game that stands out as a possible rival to Ocarina of Time, Twilight Princess or Wind Waker, and like always; Nintendo delivers (Oh well, almost always), a game, no; a gift named Breath of the Wild blessed us with its existence, so; like with the Super Mario Odyssey top 7, today we are counting down the top 7 reasons why Breath of the Wild is BETTER than you think!

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

1.       THE OPEN WORLD


(This is when you know, you are up to something great)

I know, I know; this is by far the most obvious reason; but if it was not here then this list would not be believable in any possible way, though today we will not talk about how great it is to explore this vast world, or about the secrets to offer endlessly adventures, instead; about how it impacts the Zelda series as a whole since it means innovation , a new step for the franchise to evolve from the usual 3D dungeon explorations that we are used to; giving the game series a new fresh of air and more possibilities for future games, and seeing how this game sold; I would like to say that this innovation is going to make the developers produce more games in a shorter span of time, sometimes is great to twist the formula for new experiences, well; “sometimes”, yeah; I am looking at you, Paper Mario Series!

2.       THE STORY ENVIROMENT


(No heart can take this cuteness)

While yes, this is another common reason, so yadda yadda; characters are great and the memories idea is well executed (Though, could be better if the King of Hyrule did not spoil anything at the start), but like before I prefer to take onto another view to this reason as to why Breath of the Wild is so great; this one being that it changes the narration of the franchise, now Link is not a mask for the player to project himself anymore, instead he is his own individual, he has a story, he has feelings (Kinda, between him and the Sun and Moon players; I do not know which needs how to express those feelings in their faces), which opens the idea for new stories full of charm characters that will have significant interactions and relationships links to Link (No pun intended) to a personal level!

3.       THE FANDOM DISCOVERIES


(This guy has made so many discoveries)

Yeah, for the first time in history; the fandom is an important part of enjoying this game, and this also includes YOU! Like youtubers such as Mety333, who not only creates entertainment but also makes new discoveries while playing with the game physics; even Anouma (The game developer) watched one of his videos, surprised he found new things that not even he knew about; the fandom itself helps the game when it comes to creating replay value that the creators were not sure about, making the game better than you would think; or vice versa, you WOULD think of it and share this discoveries to the world for all the fans across the internet!

4.       TIMELINE DESTROYED


(Seriously though, what are they doing here alongside the Zoras?)

Wait, what? The timeline being so obscure that it is almost impossible for us to discover where this game is placed on the timeline even if we create millions of theories is a good thing that makes the game even better? Yes my dear reader, indeed it is even if I am dragging this joke on too long; we know for sure that the developers never pay attention to the timeline while creating a game unless it is a direct sequel or prequel of another already existing Zelda game, therefore; this not only make us speculate more giving more content to the fandom to play with, but also; it makes the game stands out more with the idea of including the different species to the world, making it richer in content; from Zoras to Ritos that should not exist in the same game thanks to the Wind Waker storyline (The game that introduced Ritos as Zoras that evolved thanks to the great flood), all of this just adds more charm to the whole game!

5.       SO MUCH MOVEMENT


(This is not how you do it, Nintendo!)

Movement? But there is a stamina bar! How can there be movement? To answer that, we should take a look at the other Zelda games, in which you could not jump (Except for that cape in four swords) and your fastest move was the rolling; here thanks to the big world to explore, Link feels so free to control, jumping, gliding, running like the speed of sound; it is just great to play and while it may sound a little bit worthless; trust me you FEEL the change whenever you do something, maybe that is why I prefer more stamina bars rather than heart containers!

6.       POSSIBILITY FOR DLCS


(This art always gives me the chills)

We already know that some DLCs already came and others are still coming to the game, this gives so much replay value to the whole videogame, who knows what it is coming? Armors? New modes? More story? MORE SIDON???? Nobody knows aside from the developers, but from what we know; it is going to be amazing no matter what, which means that this plus the secondary quests, the exploration and the fandom gives hours of hours to enjoy every single part that this game offers, and is going to offer more!

7.       LASTLY, THE SHRINES


(HOLY-)

Yeah, it may not seem as much, but hear me out (Or read me in this case); while they are little dungeons that look like they are not that much, the sense that you feel whenever you find a new one, a thrill of hype crawls on your spine thanks to the unknown puzzle that you will have to face eventually, either by doing an awesome and fun side quest; or just by finding them and realizing that you have a new teleporting point, this just makes the game for me! Though, it does not excuse the developers for making such boring and charmless boss dungeons and boss battles!

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

(If you do not buy this game for these reasons, do it for him)


So with this reasons, what are you waiting to get a Nintendo Switch and a The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the wild copy if you still do not have one? You are, literally; missing one of the biggest legends that you could ever experience in your life!
