    Which Zelda has the best combat?

    BotW has the most combat diversity. Hands down. Good point in TP regarding different tactics, but I'd still have to give the nod to Skyward Sword as second to BotW. It used motion controls the way in which motion controls should have always been executed on the Wii.

    Breath of the Wild WTF moments

    The first time I spotted a bokoblin camp in the distance and noticed they were all jumping around a fire.

    Zelda games that could be expanded

    Perhaps that will be tapped in an expansion pack.

    Favorite/Least Favorite Zelda Games

    Ocarina of Time often gets listed as the best Zelda game because it broke so much new ground. I get that it was a game-changer way back in '98. It gets appropriate props for being such a monumental game. The problem I have with bestowing it with such greatness (it always seems to be #1 on...

    Zelda games that could be expanded

    Skyward Sword. It REALLY bothered me that the various regions had to be traversed twice. It seemed like a cheap way to beef up the game. Also, having to defeat Demise 3 times was ridiculous.

    Most nostalgic moments in Zelda

    NES came out when I was in High School. I watched (and helped) my buddy play the original. WAY cool. Everything about it was nostalgic at that time (as was Faxanadu). After I graduated from college I completely got away from video games until '06 or so. I played both Champions of Norrath...

    Favorite/Least Favorite Dungeons

    I really liked it. Interesting that you and I have such a different opinion about it. Although, before BOTW Twilight Princess was my favorite Zelda game and I really liked all of the Dungeons except the Temple of Time, which I rate at the absolute bottom along with OOT Water Temple.

    Breath of the Wild Which bomb do you use most?

    I use cube bombs more because I am constantly foraging. I use them to blow up ore and to knock down trees, so I can get apples and make firewood. Round bombs are more fun because they roll so can be used as more of a melee weapon from above.

    Breath of the Wild An embarrassment of riches?

    I wouldn't be surprised to see some combination of linear progression and open world (I know that sounds like an oxymoron). Kingdom of Amalur was like that. It had distinct areas and regions that were open, but getting to each one was a bit of a progression which made the game somewhat...

    Breath of the Wild Do any of the game items have no practical use?

    Thanks for all of the info. Essentially, everything in this game has a practical use - nothing consists solely for the purpose of being sold for rupees. Very good to know.

    Breath of the Wild Do any of the game items have no practical use?

    Well, I sold the only diamond I had. I'm pretty far off from what I need to even forge ancient armor or weapons, so I guess worrying about having what I need to upgrade them is kind of foolish at this point. What about ancient screws and springs?

    Breath of the Wild Do any of the game items have no practical use?

    Obviously, anything organic can be used for the making of meals and elixirs. I discovered at the first (and only, so far) fairy fountain I discovered that some of these items are needed to upgrade armor (so glad I had on hand what was needed). With the exception of the diamond I found, it...

    Breath of the Wild How difficult is BoTW for you?

    I've found the game to be moderately difficult, but only rarely has it been frustratingly so. I found a temple off the east coast and was treated to a major test of strength. I must have tried a dozen times and got demolished rather quickly with every try. I found this shrine rather early in...

    Breath of the Wild 4 hours in: disheartened, frustrated, may start over

    Yes. I may have to re-visit that shrine as I am not implementing what I learned there. Fortunately, even enemies killed in shrines re-spawn with a blood-moon so I may have to pay that shrine a visit soon and brush up on these skills.

    Breath of the Wild BOTW Monster Appreciation Thread

    The bokoblins and moblins crack me up. The first time I came across a bunch of bokoblins dancing around a fire I bust my gut laughing. It's hilarious to spy on them too. They have conversations that look hilarious. When moblins are by themselves they have a tendency to pick things off the...

    Breath of the Wild Heart Container or Stamina Vessel?

    You moved the goalposts a bit. If I get to a point where I have 15+ hearts, yeah stamina becomes more important and I'll be looking to acquire all 3 wheels. But earlier in the game (which is where I am at), I think hearts are more important. Certainly, by the time one has 27 hearts any...

    Breath of the Wild I still hate the weapons breaking mechanic

    but it's more about the fact that I find myself gaining VERY good weapons, and then being "afraid" to use them so that I don't degrade them. Yes. This. I have been carrying a 54-damage weapon for several hours and have yet to use it for this very reason. I'm thinking about adding a couple of...

    Breath of the Wild Disappointed with no game pad functionality for the WiiU version

    I didn't consider that. It's certainly plausible. At least they released it for both consoles. I would have been furious if it wasn't available for the WiiU.

    Breath of the Wild Heart Container or Stamina Vessel?

    I have added heart containers 7 times and have upgraded stamina twice. With non-bosses being able to do a ton of damage with one hit, I think heart containers are more important. I've gotten enough containers that I will probably alternate upgrading the next 4 times until my second stamina...

    Breath of the Wild I still hate the weapons breaking mechanic

    I've got to say that I'm not a fan of the weapon degradation system. However, it's not really a big deal either. I have yet to run out of weapons and usually only have a couple of slots open and for a short period of time so it's no big deal. To preserve my weapons I use bombs to knock down...

    Breath of the Wild What Are You Doing In BOTW?

    At roughly 30 hours in I have spent most of my time exploring and foraging. I'm trying to find as many shrines as possible and open up as much of the map as possible. I purchased a house in Hateno Village and while I've found Zora's Domain and Rito Village I have no intention of working on the...

    Breath of the Wild Disappointed with no game pad functionality for the WiiU version

    I am playing BOTW on the WiiU. The one thing I find disappointing is that the game pad has no functionality for the game. For example, with the Wind Waker and Twilight Princess re-releases the map would show on the game pad and you could control your inventory from the game pad. This made...

    Breath of the Wild 4 hours in: disheartened, frustrated, may start over

    I was probably at least 15 hours into the game before I met Impa. I got so busy exploring and trying to find shrines that I couldn't be bothered with the main story line. When I finally decided to go see her I just activated that quest in the menu and a pin on the map showed me where she was...
