You probably already know how you’re going to play The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom. I certainly do; I’m going to bite into each piece of the menu in small bites, as if it were a gourmet dessert that I’m trying to make last (our review only reinforces my desire to take my time). Next, I’m going to double down on my leads to mastering weapon and item fusion, as well as the improved cooking system. I miss myself with collecting Korok seeds though, unless Nintendo made them more appealing to seek out than in breath of the wild.
I’ve already spoken with someone who is considering doing the exact opposite; they intend to run as quickly as possible so as not to be spoiled by the rhythms of the main story. I try to be respectful of other points of view, but I want to let my brain marinate in Zonai juice for as long as possible.
I get it – some people don’t have a lot of free time to play video games. These folks get a pass, but respectfully, it’s hard for me to accept that rushing through this game will still extract the same flavor, if you will, for those (ahem, Jay Peters of The Verge) who plan to play this way.
So, I’m curious: how to do You are you going to play it? Will you be moving forward on major story goals, so you can move on to other games in the coming months? Or are you just going to let the game carry you for as long as you’re interested, however long that takes? Let us know.
