I don't know about this, Breath of the Wild can be pretty diverse in the ways you decide to tackle various enemies and challenges, specially once you master the peculiarities of terrain and weather and realize how much damage the runes can inflict. Imagine if you could glide to strike a dragon, or shout a boulder down on your enemies in Skyrim.

Coming from pen&paper RPGs I can imagine all sort of crazy stuff. Honestly, I find both BotW and Skyrim to be very limited games, each in its own way, but I find Skyrim, due to it being RPG, to have better replayability...and much more content, while we're at it. Ultimately, IMO, they are just decent games, and that's about it.

This might not be adding much to the conversation, but I put Skyrim and Breath of the Wild at my #2 and #3 slots, respectively. No reason we can't enjoy both, they don't have to be in direct opposition of one another. 



I got it all, baby! 

PS4, Switch, WiiU, XBO, PC
Vita, 3DS, Android

Top 3 this generation: 
Bloodborne, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Dark Souls III

Skyrim was just too buggy for me. That and the melee combat felt very stiff and unsatisfying. I know it's a popular favourite but honestly I never felt it was that good a game.



Breath of the Wild - This game constantly bombarded you with things to do while giving you the pace to enjoy them in a sandbox way



Feel free to check out my stream on twitch 

My favourite of this decade would be Pokemon Black/White, but the one I've played the most is Skyrim.



You know it deserves the GOTY.

Indeed, they are not in direct opposition, but I often see folks comparing them - which is quite silly, they might both be designed as open world game, but ultimately fall into different genres and since BotW exploded and got its mainstream cult following (not unlike Skyrim so many years before), it is very common to see such comparisons.

But ultimately, they are very different games (though both designed for mainstream appeal), each with its own sets of freedoms and game mechanisms, and IMO both decent games, but also quite limited.



As much as I have loved PS exclusives, I have to say Witcher 3. I'm partial to 3rd person RPGs and this was the ultimate expression of that. Everything was done excellently in my opinion, be it technical or artistic (I came in a little later, so all the bugs had already been dealt with). CDPR obviously puts a lot of heart in what they do. The attention to detail and weaving such storytelling into the world, with well fleshed out and likable characters, choices that actually have effects, and whatnot. Greatness.

I wasn't sure whether to include this one in my honourable mentions; it's a 2010 release in the West, but came out in 2009 originally, in Japan.

i would have put skyrym up there, but recently i did a re evaluation of bethesda software and came to the conclusion we have been duped, into believing and falling for their hype. From the bugs, to the graphics, physics and AI, really outdated, long load times, encumbered, glitches, half decent story, dragons that look cheaply designed. Fell for the same fiasco in fallout 4, 76. Looking back, there was barely much fun in it at all, just more repetition. Would definitely avoild the enxt few fallout/elder games unless there is a complete over haul of the game design and a new engine built from the ground up only for next gen hardware.

Yeah I kinda agree, even back in 2011 I never understood why people were so full of praise for a game that couldn't run for 10 minutes without a glitch. It's just so damn janky.
