The Legend of Zelda : Breath of the Wild. What Got Me Addicted to It.


Why I Started Playing BOTW?

For Me Who has Always been a Zelda fan, Hearing about BOTW was very Exciting. As I waited for it to be released I would often look it up to know what it was going to be like, and knowing that it contained all its main elements, which made The Legend Of Zelda series what it was i.e The Dungeons, Defeating Ganon, Saving Zelda and The Side Quests, Made me all the More Eager to Try It Out. The first Zelda game I ever played was The Legend Of Zelda: Ocarina Of Time, Although very different from BOTW but its love for it was what led me to purchase BOTW. Something we found New in BOTW was The Freedom to Move Around and Explore The Expansive Maps of Hyrule, which was quite Exciting and I HAD to try it Out.
