    This game is just so wonderful, hearing them talk about it and the little details and what took priority is so fun. Thank you Nintendo, for putting so much care into this game

      I like how this was a nice conversation with all of them together rather than this super showy and super formal and braggy presentation that was all about how they made the graphics engine
      thx Nintendo!

              I like Revali the best, because Ravioli ravioli give me the formioli. Like if you got the reference.

              Jk I ain’t no like beggar.

                I only started playing BOTW a week or two ago. I'm not even half way done with the main quest line -- only one divine beast defeated and I still have the four westward regions to explore. Maybe 60 shrines completed. Etc. Not terribly far into the whole game. And I still LOVE exploring each region. I still love planning and executing attacks on encampments of enemies. I still love how simply playing the game feels.

                You can feel the effort that went into developing this game. The design of the world and the sonic landscape as well lends itself to fruitful and enjoyable exploration. The very fact that you can see something marginally suspicious and the game rewards you for checking it out is worthy of applause.

                All of the new mechanics and themes within this Zelda world, as well as the world building congruent with the precious Zelda titles, make for a phenomenal gameplay experience. Thank you for this game, Nintendo. And to the Zelda team specifically: thanks for the hard work and dedication to your vision. I grew up playing and loving videogames. Sometime in the early to mid 2010's I grew disenchanted and fell out of love with the game industry as a whole due to feeling like the industry had fallen so far from the standards they upheld years ago. In a world where most AAA titles feel like they were developed more for the money and less for the fan, Breath of the Wild really feels like a breath of fresh air. Pun not intended but definitely worthwhile.

                Sorry not sorry for fanboying. Much love. <3

                  I FEEL bad for the game designers because if they played the game it would already be spoilt for them

                              I love these little sneak peaks into the development of BotW. It’s so cool to see how everything came together. I hope they do something like this for the sequel too

                                Im here a day after they announced the sequel at E3 2019 and i just hav to say they knocked it out of thr park with the first game. Its great to see people who actually care about their work and their fans first and money comes afterwards. Im stoked for thr next one bc ik its going to be on that same par

                                    Thanks Nintendo for making me happy😃 this Switch made my family time/game night even better and thanks for Legend Of Zelda BTOW its an awesome game and Super Smash Bros and more , I’m 12 years old when I grow up I’ll remember these days in the future and how happy these games made me other then stress and anger, but I did have Anxiety but when I played on the switch it kinda made my stress and dark thoughts go away more likely disappear, idk how but it did🙂 now my family don’t get angry at me because of not coming out of my room😅

                                      This is so great. I just can’t help but feel like these are just a bunch of kids sitting at a table discussing their favorite game and just having fun. Unlike other game developers Nintendo doesn’t prioritize profit over the quality of their games, they don’t rush games and if they do they still turn out as masterpieces (Majoras Mask for instance).
                                      I see a lot of “Sony vs Microsoft vs Nintendo” stuff but in reality, Nintendo is 10 steps above everyone else just because of their mentality while making these great games.

                                        you all make me cry with the amount of care you put into this game. i wish i had the same passion for one thing and had a bunch of friends all gathered around that share that dream.

                                          This game is the main reason I am going to buy a switch. I have a Xbox one X. And having really awesome graphics and and a blu Ray player and some other features I really enjoy is nice. But Nintendo just has so many great games that make sure your gameplay experience is so great. Plus I can take it everywhere.

                                                I 100% agree with the idea of playing this game with friends and family. With one of my friends, we took that to another level, since we're playing together, each one having a joycon in hands. At first, it's kinda hard, but with communication, you can manage to play as if there was only one person holding both joycons. It's a really fun, interesting and original way to play. If you have the occasion to do it, try it !

                                                You can also try to incorporate personal challenges while playing the game, for example don't fish or hunt and only cook with vegetables and mushrooms. That makes the game more challenging and totally changes the experience.

                                                    How did you guys make such a different game, but have it still evoke the same feelings that only this franchise can?

                                                                            - Actual big dungeons with distinct personnalities.
                                                                            - Fix framerate
                                                                            - Writing and story were a bit too simple in this one.
                                                                            - More character customisation (just a personal thing though. Being able to make specific builds and stuff and also have more cosmetic customisation would be great)
                                                                            - Rebalance weapon durability. It was frustrating.
                                                                            - Greater area diversity
                                                                            - Housing can be greatly improved

                                                                            So there's still room for improvement. You really have a lot of talent Nintendo guys, I'm sure you can make such a game.

My parents understood it, unlike games like Overwatch or even Smash where there's just a lot happening and fast paced. But they really got it, it was a blast.
