Tears of the Kingdom (Gaming)

Okay, so how much of the appeal of this game and its predecessor comes from nostalgia?

Except for Mac titles going all the way back and some of the first generation of arcade titles, I'm uncultured as a gamer. My experience is (shamefully?) shallow in regards to console game canon. MY first Xbox was the first real game machine in my house since a big clunky PONG thing I had in the 70s. Sonic, Zelda, even the name Mario mean almost nothing to me.

I've read the reviews of these games with interest, but are they for me? And who is going to loan me their switch?

fwiw, I never got into any of the Zelda games, but Breath of the Wild was amazing. It was the perfect mixture of open world exploring, button mash battling, precisely timed battling, puzzle solving, boss battles, side quests, and collectibles (well, most of the collectibles).

These are my opinions.

I have spoken.
