Actually multiple games have borrowed from BOTW, but that's beside the point. Even if nobody tried to copy it, that wouldn't change the fact that it did new things.

What did it do that was new? 

The physics engine is pretty unique.  Link is pretty much only held back by the player's imagination.  Google some videos, it is crazy the amount of things the physics engine allows the player to do.  

I would also argue the Switch in general allowed BotW to be groundbreaking.  It was the first time that seamless gameplay could occur between the home and on the road.  While maintaining graphics, cutting edge for the mobile scene.
