It all depends on which type of game you like better. I prefer cinematic games with some freedom over full open world games most of the time. So I would probably prefer GOW over BoTW. Others prefer BoTW over GOW, since they like that type of game more. I would say you could better compare GOW, with Uncharted 4 or Bloodborne, since they are way more similar. Even HZD would be a way better comparison for GOW than Zelda.
At the end of the road all of the games I named are pretty great, so it doesn't actually matter all that much.
Please excuse my (probally) poor grammar
