The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is a game experienced in diverse ways by its player base. For some it's a dramatic story-driven adventure, for others it's a sprawling quest of exploration and finding the smallest details. Each player's favourite and most memorable moments will be different.
Nintendo has now published a 'Bonus Session' video in which senior managers in the game's development talk about their favoured areas, shrines and characters, and how they hope players will explores the world. Check it out below.
It's certainly a game that can appeal to a broad audience of gamers - share some of your memories or stand-out moments in the comments below.
No better moment in the whole game than picking up a rock, finding a Korok, and promptly dropping the rock on it's head.
My favourite moment so far and I'm nowhere near finished btw is gaining access to the Ketoh Wawai Shrine in Thyphlo Ruins. Those who have played it know what I'm talking about. The one where you're fumbling around in the dark, I won't spoil it. It's genius.
I'm really curious at what the dubious food looks like un-pixelated now. Lol great little interview~ Great game they did amazing things with the chemistry and physics.
I'm partial to the very beginning, the feeling of being overwhelmed by the adventure and the world and kinda wondering what next and why.
As you progress, and the controls become instinctive and events unfold, the world starts to feel smaller and less scary so to speak. Not that it isn't still full of wonder, but it feels more manageable. Maybe an odd opinion, but I like the uncertainty of the start.
Favorite moment is probably meeting Kass, he's my favorite character in the game.
I love his accordion music.
Played this morning and watched a moblin look for his weapon and then pick up and throw a bokoblin at me instead. When he landed he looked back and yelled like WTF MAN. Hilarious.
My favorite moments so far have to be the boss battles. My wife and I share a file, and we both do a lot of the exploring, she takes about half the shrines, but the boss battles are mine, lol. I just wish there were more of them.
For me the realisation that altitude affects temperature was a standout realising that snowstorm that was happening when I started climbing down that cliff has gone and my well planned descent had just become an an OH FUDGE moment.
Many great moments so far. My first lightning storm was my favorite as I was sparking and thought maybe it was adding electric effect to my attack, so I threw my almost broken traveler sword... And promptly died to the strike. Should have added "by the power of greyskull" and i would have been fine 😊
This video series is really fantastically. I finally got around to watching to first three after being too scared to watch them before playing. Almost welled up a little. And learnt some neat new tricks.
I think my favorite Shrines are the all the ones with Kass quests. Trying to figure out the meaning of the riddles is fun.
My favourite is reading all the books about what happened while link was asleep made it feel more alive plus every npc has a job and purpose making the game feel alive!!!!
I think so far my favourite thing was the cutscene after taking back my first divine beast. It was so dramatic it made the hairs on the back of my neck stand up. Really felt like the underdogs had started their fight back.
Climbing a random hilltop and being rewarded with a swath of rare flowers and herbs.
I liked the run-up to the Rito Divine Beast most, and the dungeon itself. Runner-up is the way you unlocked the Zora Divine Beast.
My favorite moments in general are just climbing up mountains and getting to the highest point in any new area that I find. There's just something about climbing so freely that I find so satisfying. It's why I upgraded all my stamina so quickly
@MetalKingShield That air battle was awesome.
Favorite moment.. thinking.. can't seem to recall a good memory to be my favorite. I have a playtime for this game of over 200 hours, according to the last time I checked on my switch. There is so many things you can do. The visuals is so great that I like the sunsets. The music is so awesome, some of the best in the series. My favorite character is Revali, with Princess Zelda as my second favorite. And my favorite place is at home so I can relax or admire my good collection of Bows, Weapons and Shields I got mounted on the wall.
There are a lot of memorable moments that can come up from the game for sure, and it being as large, physics based, and non-linear as it is, it really helps make the journey personable.
I have a memorable moment recently where I found this beautiful horse on a snowy mountain, but it was being ridden by these nasty moblins. They had high leveled bows that took off, oh, 7-10 hearts a shot, and there were two of them. Tough, but I'd seen some of their kind in the plains before. Nothing a bit of arrows, food, and Stasis can't solve. I managed to defeat them both in fairly short order. It was snowy, so I couldn't quite tell the exact color and patterning of the horse I freed, but it looked greenish blue with a kind of spotted, speckled, and swirled design all in one. I thought, I must register this horse, so I can travel with it further. Most of my venture thus dar has been by foot, but with most landmarks discovered, it would be nice to roam around on horseback. Per usual, though, the nearest stable was far, far away, and the mountain outskirts I was on made my path to it fairly limited.
Along the way I saw a camp of other moblins, with a couple on towers as lookouts. I did my best to stay to the side, it didn't stop them from noticing me or firing arrows, but I managed. I thought of what I should name this beautiful horse, and wondered what it'd look like in clearer skies. Maybe...Snow. or Dale, like Snowy Dale? I think that's a common-ish phrase. Just a little further and, is that another horse in the distance...? It's by itself though and there's usually in packs. Wait no, it's a lynel, and a white haired one at that! I should be fine though cause it's far....! But no, suddenly I'm sent flying. I run and try to dodge to the left, but one sword swing takes off a dozen or more hearts as my food rations quickly disappear. By the time I realize I've made a horrible mistake it is too late, I turn and see that Dale is on his two hind feet and a reflectively blue....he's been frozen solid by an ice arrow! Before I can get to him, the lynel gets there first and in one fatal swipe, Snowy falls to the ground. Horses can die?! I wonder as my shield breaks and I take a swipe or two of my own from the oncoming onslaught, my reserve fairies fly away, never to be seen again.
With a heavy heart I realize the hopelessness of my plight, I could last a little longer, unload the 50+ bomb arrows I've stored, but it wouldn't be enough, not in this state. Snowy's body is no longer on the ground, having mysteriously and suddenly faded from existence, almost as suddenly as he had been a part of my venture. My hand falls to my side...onto something firm. The sheikah slate? The lynel is still full steam, a distance, but only so he can gain momentum to deliver the finishing blow. My body is covered in light as my hand instinctively activates the ancient ruin, the lynel's hatred is unrelenting as he charges through my once present form, undeterred and still hungry for violence. As I'm whisked away I meet the lynel's gaze with my own, determination rising. Someday, somehow, I'll be back, and I'll find a way to make things right. RIP Snowy Dale 3/23/17
So many great moments in this game thus far, but one of my favorites was when I threw a round bomb at a group of Bokoblins but it didn't quite roll close enough. So I moved closer to them so they'd spot me, then ran thinking I would remote-detonate the bomb once they got close enough. Instead one of the Bokoblin kicked the bomb at me soccer-style and it blew up and killed me lol! And normally I'd be mad that I died but I was like "That's pretty freakin cool!"
