It’s possibly the Zelda game I’ve enjoyed the least. I was really excited to play it and so disappointed when I did. It’s such a chore and the breakable weapons are a completely pointless mechanic and remove any sense of achievement and excitement when you pick up something new, which isn’t Zelda imo. I ended up not using my best weapons so I didn’t break them
[+] Spoiler...
until I got the Master Sword but that wasn’t much better
Don’t get me started on the **** cooking :problem:

It has issues keeping a stable framerate. I found it bothersome enough to stop playing it. With that kind of style it really needs a stable framerate. It looks amazing the times when it does run at solid 60.

BOTW has been the one game in many years that took me back to how I felt playing games as a child.

As for Nintendo - I appreciate them and their first party games far more since I've had children. Family friendly big budget games don't exist on other platforms.

I grew bored of Mario odyssey quickly, but kids love it and understandably so. The assist mode is brilliant

The whole million moons and costumes seems like a pointless grind to me, but for some kids, it’s hours and hours fun

BOTW was wonderful.

Switch has become another Nintendo console that I buy maybe one or two proper games a year for. Too many Wii U ports. Can't remember the last Nintendo game I bought actually. It's a SEGA AGES console right now.

Being so jaded i'm guessing the neo geo and it's accompanying forum would be a good option.
I do agree the switch is great for adults and kids alike. I do have some kids games on the ps/xbox but the ones on switch are much easier and a lot more fun for mine.

BOTW might be one of the greatest games ever made. I've not sunk that many hours on a console game for a decade.

In other news, The Touryst is currently on sale in the e-shop and is well worth a look:

Nice.

I missed previous sales and in the end I just bought that at full price a month ago. Played it start to finish with my lad over a few evenings. I just can’t be bothered with long games. This was just what the doctor ordered. Loved it.

There is, it opens out to several islands but it’s quite a pleasant little peaceful experience all through. I liked the demo.

If Link’s awakening -fighting is a genre then this is in it.

I really enjoyed it myself. It did feel a little short but that's probably because I just wanted to play more of it :)
