Since I bought the Nintendo Switch, I’ve been hooked on Zelda. The new game is beautiful and satisfying as someone who is an occasional gamer.
The best part about it is you can go at your own pace. I haven’t come across any timers and there are so many puzzles and shrines that help you feel the sense of accomplishment along the way.
The magic of this new Zelda, is that you don’t really have to follow the story. You can wander pretty much in any direction and find something to do. Whether it’s killing a mob, solve puzzles in a shrine or try to boat across a river.
Dying also doesn’t seem like a big deal. You can pick up where you started. Sometimes deaths are funny. I occasionally climb up mountains to be killed by a goat or try too hard to capture a good horse that ends up kicking me in the face.
I’m still nowhere near done the game but I’m having so much fun in it already!
