Breath of the Wild: Influencial or Bad for the industry?
 

 
Before you come in this thread saying I’m just hating I’m not Breath Of The Wild is a masterpiece I never finished but what I played was great. The influence it had on the gaming industry as a whole was bad because most developers are trying to capture that same Nintendo magic but can’t.


Most of these games come out to be Breath If The Wild lite with bland environments. We are getting games we like free world but at what cost?

If it did, I don't care. Zelda is the GOAT franchise

I just finished Skyward Sword and it's a masterpiece as well

Don't blame BOTW for its influence. Blame the industry for lazily tryna copy it without understanding what made BOTW work.

I mean, this is the industry in general. It routinely takes the wrong lessons from groundbreaking games, and tries to recapture its thunder.

This ain't new.

I never finished it either.. Probably will never pick it back up. It’s not a bad game, but it just wasn’t for me.

I said the same thing in the beginning, but came to realize that destructible equipment actually adds another dimension to the game that makes things more strategic. You really have to be judicious about which sword you use to defeat what enemy. I get where you're coming from though.

????

There's literally weapons EVERYWHERE. Not only that, but they respawn after "Blood Moons". So, if your favorite weapon breaks, you can just go find it again.

Also, it encourages alternate methods of combat. There's so many approaches to f*ghts. You can pick em off from a distance with a bow & arrow. You can use your runes to frustrate and annoy them. You can weaponize the environment, start a fire, or even sic a swarm of bees at them.

If you can think of it, it probably works.

That's popular media. No different than the oversaturation of Trap autouned music, movie/TV show remakes and open world games and hero shooters like a overwatch

Never got to finish it. Was really high in the game (had two temples beat and a lot of items and either I or one of my kids deleted my save. Never picked it back up. But it seemed good what I did play

Zelda been influencing since 86

If it wasn't for Zelda we wouldn't have GTA... ask R* they've admitted already... Zelda 1 is the first console open world game... deal with it

So yeah it's a good thing... but ppl these days tryna copy it to a tee instead of being influenced by its ideas and innovations so that's a bad thing...

but Zelda been pushing the envelope and should continue to do so... Zelda invented targeting... nuff said

No this is facts... and the funny part is it not it PROBABLY works... it does work lol

BotW is way to crazy with what you can do... you can k*ll an enemy with another enemy and the crazy part is the enemies can k*ll you by picking up and tossing other enemies at you too

I kinda get what you saying. It's a good game but yeah all these idiots try to copy and most can't
Just making open world games just to have an open world
Even if there's not much to do in these clone games but "omg it's an open world game!"

Most of them are just time wasters

Beat it and played it for months. However, I wish it was next Gen and they flipped the game like Mario after your beat it. They could have easily done that.

BOTW 2 is on Amazon a pre-order.

I mean that and elden ring set a standard for open world games. The exploration in those games are top notch. Most other games can emulate butbthey havent matched it the weapons breaking better change in the sequel though

Pick it back up whenever you have the time it’s a masterpiece and so much more you can do. Best game on the switch hands down
