Top 10 Best Things About the Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

xandermartin98

The Top Ten

1 The Zelda series finally making an actually successful attempt to break out of its tired, clichéd old habits

The monster are smarter now.

However I think most would agree that the next game should combine Breath of the Wild with more traditional traits, e.g. themed dungeons, story more present than set in the past. Still a masterpiece though

2 The overworld that is roughly twelve times the size of Twilight Princess' yet somehow has more than ten times enough stuff to do in it to compensate for the daunting size increase
3 The overwhelmingly polished gameplay and survival mechanics
4 The paraglider
5 Shrine hunting
6 The Master-Sword-pulling scene
7 The combat system
8 The Divine Beast dungeons

My only problem is I wish they were longer.

9 The cooking system
10 The fact that Revali is literally Falco from the Star Fox series

Revali's a dick

Lol, ikr? He's got that same arrogant attitude. That's why he's my favorite character in this game. The Rito are so beautiful and cool looking in this game.

The Contenders

11 Side quests
12 Being able to do literally whatever you want, even in puzzles
13 Crossdressing Link

The only thing that matters

14 Zelda being portrayed as a complex, multifaceted character.

Best rendition yet.

15 The redesigns of Lost Woods, Death Mountain and Hyrule Castle
16 Square bombs
17 The literally 900 Korok seeds
18 Horse collecting
19 Tower climbing
