As ridiculous as that may sound to the hardened BOTW experts, it's become the normal topic of discussion whenever people list reasons as to why they didn't enjoy their experience with the title. Link's limited skillset of attacks can be combined with an arsenal of lethal weaponry that adds to the game's fundamentals. Sometimes simple can be a good thing. It helps novice players learn the game well, and can lead to a more engaging understanding. Not all titles benefit from this control scheme, though BOTW definitely excelled at it. Take Smash Bros. for instance; basic gameplay with a huge amount of depth to it. "A" and "B" are your attack buttons (based on normal control settings), with the directional up, forward, and down being each character's "smash" special. There's also forward tilts, back airs, dodge inputs, and the list goes on.
BOTW isn't for everyone, and I understand that opinions are to be respected, though how can I agree with the topic on hand when the video I posted below says different?
