Frankly, the reason I've not finished the main story in Breath of the Wild is because I keep getting side-tracked. Not on missions or side-quests, but just striking out on my own. Exploring. Discovering the world. Traipsing through the dust.
And that's because this is how I've chosen to play Breath of the Wild. It's that kind of game; so impossibly vast, so full of mystery, that everyone is going to have a slightly different experience. I've seen things that I've not read about elsewhere, and recounted my adventures with friends who've been on their own, entirely distinct, journeys.
We're all going to choose to play this game differently, and - given the size and scope - we're all going to play it in the way that suits us. Being able to walk, or run, swim, glide or climb (stamina permitting), to any point on the horizon means that everyone will be drawn to different destinations.
It's pretty much the game I always wanted to play from the moment I first picked up a joystick. For me, it's the game which finally delivers on their promise.
I might feel ready to express my opinion, but I still feel like I've barely scratched its surface.
