Wow, that's probably the worst post I have ever read from you on here. You usually seem to employ logic in your arguments.
Absense of vocal criticism does not imply the lack of a problem. You're basically insinuating that people lied about their issues with the game just because you couldn't hear the complaints in the early days that were drowned out by mindless praising. That is one reason why you didn't hear about certain complaints and the other would be that early voices are the ones more inclined to give the game a pass because it's one of their favorite franchises. People who are not that infatuated with the franchise would naturally pick up the game later and not necessarily on day one.
BTW I have been complaining about these issues since day one and got labeled as Nintendo hater for it. Weapons breaking is a stupid mechanic that nobody would have complained about if it was absent from the game. Going into the menu during fights is stupid because it could be easily done with quick menus. The fact that there are easy objective solutions for the problems that would improve experience for one group and not affect the other proves that they are problems stemming from poor game design.
That said you are of course entitled to your opinion and it does seem that the vast majority of players does not mind the brought up issues. That's also absolutely fine.
My problem with your post is however your insinuation that just because a majority does not aknowledge certain issues that it doesn't exist and even worse basically claiming that everyone who does complain does so out of disingenuity. You can write in your review whatever you want and it's fine, but don't go around actively disavowing other people's complaints.
The need to prove that BotW has no flaws and that anyone who dislikes any aspect of it is wrong is actually what reeks of desperation. I haven't seen that kind of self-righteous over-compensation in quite awhile. I don't even really understand it. We aren't talking about an average game that people are trying to prove is great, we're talking about a great game that people are hell-bent on proving is perfect, to the point they want to have any criticism nullified before god and scrubbed out of history.
What I find kind of amusing is that I've personally complained about the mechanic of weapons breaking before on these forums--that is, in Fallout: New Vegas, one of my favorite games ever. I can only assume that I was doing it in order to attack BotW, even though we knew nothing about it at that point.
