I was hesitant to get my hopes up for this game when it was announced. Nintendo wasn't exactly on a hot streak during the wii u years, so when it came out the and the hype train started rolling I held my judgement and avoided spoilers till I had the opportunity to litigate it myself after the trainwreck that was Skyward Sword, a game I very much disliked that critics seemed to love.

I was amazed by this game. Truly groundbreaking progression for a series I have loved since I was a child. I played it for a hundred hours and didn't even come close to finding everything in the dense world, and on top of anything this game is fun at its core. Despite the classic gripes (it would be nice to have actual dungeons on top of everything else) this game is as close to perfect as can be, and has become my go to answer when people ask me my fav game of all time.
