Quoted from Rarehero:
All I know it's their games are fun as fuck, and the things PC/PS4 gamers complain about have never bothered me. My DS, 3DS, and Wii U have had online play that works perfectly for me....and I'm playing online ARMS and Splatoon 2 on Switch all the time and it's awesome. So, they do get a pass, cuz they make the only stuff I want to play.
Do you not have any friends you want to play with online and like talk with them? Because the Switch is awful for that, lol. That's what I'm talking about as far as lackluster online play. No achievements, no coherent network, no integrated voice chat, etc. I like their games like Splatoon 2 online but it would be a lot better if friend integration was better. I mean it's not even at the level of the original xbox from 2002, lol.
Quoted from Rarehero:
I don't play RPG's period cuz I hate turn based gameplay & long boring stories.
Zelda's never been an RPG, it's always been an action/adventure/puzzle/quest....maybe that's what's not connecting? Expectations that don't match what you thought it was supposed to be?
BOTW: 80,000,000,000,000% One of the most amazing games I've ever played & the Zelda I've put the most hours into (175 hrs so far), and I'd totally play through the entire thing again
Horizon: The robot monsters look cool, but those creepy mannequin humans ugh
Witcher: WTF is a Witcher?
Turn based RPG? When was the last time you played a modern RPG? I can't even think of a major turn based AAA one on the Xbox One/PS4 outside of Divinity and Persona 5. I'm not sure I would classify Zelda that much differently that other modern games, it's in same category as like the new Tomb Raider games and current action RPGs, has elements of those kind of games. Like compared to the Witcher and Horizon:
both have full loadout for inventory
both have crafting/cooking
both have puzzles
both have huge open worlds
both you level up
both have sidequests
both have combat action that relies on strategy more than mashing buttons
Zelda and Horizon have regenerating enemies, which Witcher doesn't have
Witcher and Horizon have a story driven narrative, which zelda doesn't have
both have tons of secrets to discover
zelda is family friendly, Witcher is definitely not, Horizon is somewhere in between.
I mean, they're pretty close overall as far as game category. What was the last non-Nintendo RPG you played? You're describing things from like 20 years ago, lol, as if the last RPG you played was the original Fallout on PC. All the turn based stuff kind of disappeared in the early 2000's (except for jrpg's) until Divinity kind of brought it back recently.
