the game of life... great graphics but the game play sucks.
So much <3 for Breath of the Wild. BotW and A Link Between Worlds are my favorite Zelda games ever, though I'll always have a soft spot for Twilight Princess (the very first Zelda game I finish, which I know may shock some of you) and the DS games. The Wii U remaster of Wind Waker was so much fun, too.So! Mostly Zelda. Breath of the Wild is easily in the list of top Zeldas for me, and definitely has potential to be on my top games in general list. There's definitely some clear indication of "You need to go beat Ganon and save us all!" as all Zeldas tend to be, and there are generally some level of "you should go here to progress!" elements. But I'm at a point now where I know I need to accomplish certain major goals before I can finish the game, along with a dozen or so "figure out these things" goals, but with absolutely minimal guidance on what any of that looks like.
Honestly, the game feels more like a huge, modern original Legend of Zelda than any other game in the series. I absolutely love it. Hooboy.
Hollow Knight is easily one of the hardest Metroidvania games I've ever played and took some time to grow on me, especially since the overwhelming praise heaped on the game set my expectations so high.Also some Hollow Knight. Game is great. Making progress, I think. Unfortunately, things like "goals" seem to be missing. I'm not actually sure what I'm trying to accomplish in the game, and there's a definite lack of hand-holding in figuring out where to go next. But no complaints. Figuring it out just by pushing through and letting new powerups open new areas as a Metroidvania should. Game is gorgeous and challenging, but never seeming unfair. Just hard.
