I just wanted to point out I don't think anyone ever expected BotW levels of either graphics or ambition. After all, this is Game Freak we're talking about here. It's not that people expect it to be like that - it's moreso that people are questioning why it can't be like that, when it's a franchise that's consistently sold massive numbers, much higher than those of Zelda and even Mario (3D). By all means, it should at least be as ambitious looking as those two are based on sales, if not more. It shouldn't be a matter of whether Game Freak is or isn't experienced with HD development, because when it's a franchise this big, the normal thing would be for there to be a massive budget and other development teams (who already have experience, in this scenario) helping out. Most people never expected this to happen, they're just questioning why it can't.
I think the biggest thing people need to understand is that Pokemon always was and has been a portable/handheld experience. The games have a TONNE of content but have never been about having the biggest worlds or the prettiest graphics.
What I've seen is entirely in line with what I expected and hoped for. If people are upset about what we're getting, that's on them, not Nintendo. Nintendo is delivering in line with realistic expectations and gamers/fans are just salty, entitled dicks.
Not you. you seem to be reasonable.
