Incredible. Perfect. Masterpiece. 10 out of 10. By now you should have probably heard all the praise this game has garnered and I have to admit, after finishing The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, I am here to reiterate. So let’s begin why this game is so damn good and personally easily among my top 10 favorite games of all time.
Not trying to pull any puns but Breath of the Wild is a breath of fresh air in the world of gaming. Gone are the hand holding, pointers, markers, intrusive companions and in its stead you have freedom. As soon as you start the game you have a brief cutscene where you hear Princess Zelda and after that you are free to explore.
There is a small area that you are restricted to at the beginning of the game after you wake up from a one hundred years slumber but this area itself is quite big. Here you you will acquire some runes which will be useful throughout all your adventure. Those abilities can be used in puzzles, combat and exploration. It is incredible how much creativity there is in each area of the game. Now, instead of me trying to write a page full of praises, let’s be a bit more objective and I’ll go through more praises as I go along and my minor tiny little complains.
After the 2013 reboot of the Tomb Raider franchise, the most iconic female videogame protagonist is back for another adventure in Rise of the Tomb Raider, a game originally released exclusively on Xbox platforms for limited time, then released not too long after on PC and an year after on Playstation 4. I did play it on PC but since I could not get it at release I decided to wait for the inevitable complete edition to come along with the PS4 version and I have to say, what a fantastic game it is! Even more than an year after its release it is still far better than most games I’ve played in a very long time.
Before I even start talking about the game itself, please forgive me if I make some comparisons to Uncharted because it seems one game has been taking inspirations from the other for years now and both have became so good, so above other adventure games that it seems to me there’s no reason to try to say which is better but instead be thankful us gamers have two great franchises to look forward to.

After hearing so much good things about Syberia and being in a mood a for a good adventure point and click game I decided to give Syberia a try. What a disappointment it is and a big one at that. Continue reading
About yesterday night I was watching a video on youtube of a channel I have subscribed and they were reviewing Dear Esther. The funny thing was that the person didn’t know how to begin or even describe Dear Esther. Ironically I don’t know where to star either. Continue reading
