I actually get where @firebush03 is coming from. I remain puzzled by the poll results and the comments so far. I expected a 60-40 split in favor of Tears of the Kingdom, based on the feedback I've seen on this site and elsewhere for the past six months. I'm not complaining -- I prefer Breath of the Wild myself -- but I am surprised.
I'm a bit surprised too. I get that Breath of the Wild is 1 point higher on Metacritic and the honeymoon phase of Tears of the Kingdom is over for most, but a lot of other sites seem to have the majority consensus of Tears of the Kingdom with around 60-75 percent of votes.
I still voted for Breath of the Wild, but the games are still pretty comparable in quality to me.
If we're talking number scales for a rating I would say...
Breath of the Wild: 9.5 or 10 depending on the scale.
Tears of the Kingdom: 9 or 9.25 depending on the scale.
