>>471593958>In your opinion
Yes, and in the opinion of any normal person. You're reaching if you're seriously going to try and defend a game with the tone of a lighthearted anime fan fiction gives you a feeling of "loneliness and isolation". Even Wind Waker felt more post apocalyptic.>>471593958>which is a very arbitrary target.
So is literally any target you set for a game, do you think a game being fun or engaging is any less arbitrary? >In your delusional brain perhaps
You yourself have admitted the game is goofy, how can you say a game where even the majority of the monsters have a silly cartoon bounciness to them has a dreary atmosphere?>>471594240>The Zelda game that conforms the most to the open world triple A formula isn't enjoyed by the average triple A slurping retard
Maybe in bizzaro world, they did the best they could to capitalize on every trend in gaming at the time to the point it has no reason to even be Zelda.
-Full voice acting
-Cell shading mixed with realistic proportion a-la borderlands
-An empty open world filled with far too many pointless collectibles
-Flanderized anime characters to appeal to tumblr and porn communities
and of course
-Tons and tons of horse armor tier DLC
And thats just off the top of my head. It is more similar to open world aaa games like Asscreed, RDR, GTA, and even Shadow of War than it is to any previous Zelda games. The only connection is the copyrighted names and items.
