It feels like it would have been REALLY easy to throw in a couple dozen things worth discovering into Breath of the Wild which would have dramatically improved the feeling of exploration.
They did the hard part of making a vast world to explore with interesting systems and then didn't spend a tiny bit of time on rewarding it

Loot boxes are largely ignored in other full-priced and predominantly multiplayer games Overwatch and Call of Duty: WW2 - beyond being historically disrespectful - because they contain only cosmetic items to alter character or weapon appearance.

Super Mario Galaxy 2 might put up the sterner challenge and may well be the better game, but I'll take its predecessor any day for the coherence of its own particular dream world
It's nice and comfy to remember the good old days, hell I do it a lot lately online, but his point still stands. Mindless consuming is as much to blame for all this as the companies themselves. Companies won't sell what you don't want to buy.
I'd personally blame the idiots spending the money, not the publishers. At the end of the day, EA are a business, not a charity and will naturally try and maximise profits.
but it's not hard to remember that mostly everyone - and I mean players and journalists alike - used to decry the lowered difficulty ("dumbing down"?) of AAA games. I don't remember almost anyone who actually disagreed.
