As one of the most popular franchises of all time, most are familiar with The Legend of Zelda. The new Nintendo Switch’s, "Breath of the Wild," is by far the best edition of the game. The game starts off following a similar storyline as before. Link, the hero of the game, wakes up in a cave and travels to Hyrule. The great kingdom has been destroyed and overtaken by nature and other evil forces.

The game involves solving multiple puzzles, exploring Hyrule, and more to bring some normality to the world. In the newest edition, the puzzles are difficult, and Hyrule is introduced as an open world so that players can do whatever they want.
