Locked: Without the Zelda name, Breath of the Wild would not score so well

Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Without the Zelda name, Breath of the Wild would not score so well

I believe that if the game did not contain the Zelda name, but was called something else, it would get far worse reviews. By having the Zelda name, nostalgia ampliflies reviewers good thoughts on the game.



Predicted 15+ million lifetime-sales for God of War:

And your argument is which one?



Intel Core i7 8700K | 32 GB DDR 4 PC 3200 | ROG STRIX Z370-F Gaming | Nvidia RTX 2080 Ti 11GB VRAM | Asus PG27UQ gaming on 3840 x 2160 @120 Hz GSYNC HDR| HTC Vive Pro :3

Reached PC Masterrace level.

As long as you apply this logic to all sequels, you'll be fine.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

Fascinating that this appeared as the embargo ended, and about a game that has broken nearly every convention in a 31 year old franchise. Try harder with a troll thread, next time.



If it didn't have the Zelda name people would praise it even more look at Okami that game had notable flaws that are criticized in Zelda games but because it was a good Zelda clone it was praised to high heaven.

I didn't expect to see this thread so early today.

Funny how every single reviewer was a big Zelda fan as a kid.



You wouldn't even be here if Zelda wasn't made!!!!!

BOOM!

Eh... to some extent but certainly not "far worse".

It'd drop maybe 2 points... lol
