    But I feel like nintendo payed off reviewers because there is such a big discrepancy between user reviews and critic reviews(for example metacritic gives it 98 and users 7.5) There is simply no way this game is better than Majoras Mask and only one point away from ocarina of time?No way. I have played Ocarina atleast 20-30 times in my lifetime and it is without a doubt the best zelda in the series. This game is good but honestly it doesn't seem like a 98 to me. To say this is the second best zelda is a travesty to be honest. What are your opinions gbatemp?

    Wherever you want me, baby.
    It's alright. It's a decent game. Seems barebones in some areas. I'd give it a 7.5/10.

    Reviews are always biased. You may not agree with them... at that point, you write your own.

    You lost any relevance when you mentioned Metacritic.
    It's a cesspool of stupidity. Anyone and their grandma can give the game a 1/10 with no real review without having played the game. No one gives even half a fuck about metacritic. It wasn't even relevant back when it was new.

    Breath of the Wild is far and above the best game in the series. OOT and MM were innovative and grand in their time but they're archaic and boring now.

    Generally the only negativity leveled against BOTW are from edgy 12 year olds. Aside from the framerate while docked, the game is pretty fantastic.

    *Taking Metacritic seriously
    You shouldn't do that, pal.
    And I can't really give opinions other than it looks nice and I'd like to have it even if I subconsciously know it's a shitty game.

    It's decent. It doesn't deserve a 10/10 though.

    If i would rate it, probably a 5 - 6/10.
    It looks good, it plays fairly well but the open world is just empty and repetive and some of the core change nintendo made are... just bad.

    It deserves its 10/10. Lots of troll user reviews. Lots of people who haven't even unlocked all the features/abilities in the game giving reviews too early. Okami is one of my favorite games of all time, but this iteration of Zelda bumped it down one spot.

    10/10 IMO
    It looks great and plays great.
    The story is there. Yes its not a hand holder game. You will have to get out there and find some stuff.
    But thats the pure fun in the game. Just enjoying the world. I climb very high just to see if i could. Followed animals to see where they go.
    Did some hill surfing.

    And when you get to battleing its something else. I dont think there is many games that come close to.

    Overall i enjoy the game.

    The difficulty increase compared to previous games is amazing! Haven't had this much fun since Wind Waker. :D

    Not really,edgy 12 year olds are more prone to liking this game because they didnt grow up with the old games. Also metacritic gave it 98/100,all the major review websites give it high scores. How many people that LOVE not just LIKE breath of the wild are 20-30+ years old?

    I'm 29, played every game in the series apart from CDI games

    I have very fond memories of all of the games

    I don't think there has been any game on any console that has made me say "this is amazing". Then I played Breath of the Wild


    Breath of the Wild is amazing.

    When I'm not playing it, I'm thinking about playing it

    That is all

    No offense, but Windwaker HD, Twilight Princess, Minish Cap, and of course ALBW are all far better than MM. Your tastes are very mucked up.

    Majoras Mask most people either like or hate so I used a poor example. I think breath of the wild is a good game but I do not think its the best in the series.

    25 and I think this game is fantastic. Easily #2 with aLttP at number 1. I thoroughly enjoyed oot and some of majoras mask. Twilight princess was fun on the GameCube, the wii version was meh. Skyward Sword was actually a good way to show off what the Wiimotes can do. Breath of the Wild gives us a sense of freedom that most of the other 3d ones didn't. That's a fact.. The opinion comes out of whether or not you enjoyed it. Don't generalize everyone who enjoys it as an "edgy 12 year old". Also metacritic is absolute shit when it comes to community/unpaid reviews.

    Earth, bro-dude.
    I think one thing some people are forgetting, there is confirmed DLC. Hate or love DLC for what it is, but we will be getting more to this game than what's currently presented. Even gripes of FPS could potentially be corrected.

    Personally, MM is below SS in my own ranking--Zelda II is near the bottom; CDI games take the cow cake. BotW, OoT, WW, LttP1X2, LADX, are some of my favories, in order.

    A patch to help FPS issues would be great.
