Developers need to realise these mechanics aren't adding a challenge to your game, they are forcing us to play a particular way.
The Gambling Commission has warned parents about gambling websites, calling them "parasites feeding off popular video games".
For Nintendo, it's not a good look. Here we have a new console from a company already accused of ripping off its customers with higher-than expected pricing.
getting this day 1, THIS is why I love Nintendo, crazy bastards!
Technology is not the blank, identikit canvas onto which games are painted. It is the topography that defines what kinds of play are possible.
What this all adds up to is superb sandbox game design, free of fiddle or bloat, unencumbered with preconceptions, and executed with the rock-solid reliability, tactile feedback and arcade brio for which Nintendo is justly celebrated. In other words: a total marvel.
Nintendo has created, for me, the greatest game of all time.
I am convinced that it is one of the very finest video games ever made
The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild isn’t just good, it’s the best launch title I’ve ever played.
This sense of wonder is something that I haven’t felt so strongly since I played A Link to the Past when I was seven years old.
Breath of the Wild is a defining moment for The Legend of Zelda series, and the most impressive game Nintendo has ever delivered.
The best Zelda there’s ever been, and very possibly the best video game ever made.
It's like nothing else Nintendo has made, an experience so simultaneously prodigious and accomplished that it feels like a mind-blowing mic drop to the sort of "open world" games (Grand Theft Auto V, The Elder Scrolls: Skyrim, The Witcher 3) the industry seems bent on proliferating.
Plenty of games promise to let us go anywhere and do anything; few, if any, ever deliver on it so irresistibly. Nineteen years on, Ocarina is still held up as the high-water mark of one of gaming’s best-loved – and greatest – series. Now it may have to settle for second place.

Sweeney told Glixel that out of the approximately half a million PC VR headsets sold to date, rival VR headset HTC Vive had outsold Oculus two-to-one. That pegged Rift as having sold just a couple thousand units at best
@spekkeh To be fair to The_shlaaaag_returns, if the only evidence that the world is full is from Giant Beastcast, there's still room for doubt.
And just because Zelda is now open world
Why are you getting so defensive? Attack my points, not me. Ad hominems never work.
[Having just completed it, we couldn’t help but think of Horizon Zero Dawn while playing Breath Of The Wild, and how simplistic it now seems compared to Zelda
At this stage we’d shocked if this didn’t turn out to be the best Zelda since Ocarina Of Time. It may even surpass it, and since many still regard that as the best video game ever made it becomes almost impossible to overstate just how good Breath Of The Wild is.
Some simply don't seem to understand how counter to a mainline Zelda game this is.
Zelda games are a complete, epic adventure experience. You are sold a whole game. A beginning, middle, and end. All in the box. The entire experience.
@spekkeh Or people over think games..
"Expect to fork out around £70 for a second set of Joy-Cons."
Why this in every article? Surely only a minority of players needs four controllers??
it's absolutely justified to be judged on the merits its ports and how it performs as a home console, with is how most people will be using it in the West.
But why they insist on being 6-7 years behind instead of 3-4 beats me.
