After spending 40+ hours with The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, it’s hard for me to remember another game that evokes the same sense of exploration. No matter what you do, you’ll likely be sidetracked by a new quest, a quaint village, a new gameplay mechanic or just the beauty of the open world.

I’m hesitant to call this the best game I’ve ever played, but it’s not far off. I haven’t had this sense of childlike discovery in over a decade.
