Bethesda boss Todd Howard praises Zelda: Breath of the Wild saying “it’s a magical game”

Bethesda boss and all round core gamer Todd Howard was recently interviewed on the Lex Fridman Podcast and was asked whether he has played The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. Mr. Howard says that he certainly has and he then proceeded to gush enthusiastically about Nintendo’s first open world Zelda game saying that it is “absolutely fantastic” and that “Nintendo did a phenomenal job” he also said that it is a “truly magical experience.” Mr. Howard is no stranger to open world games having helped create revered open world games such as The Elder Scrolls: Skyrim and Fallout 3.

  1. As much as i enjoyed Skyrim i really have to say that i think Bug-thesta can learn a thing or to from BotW as far as creating an open world free roam sandbox game. I’ve played Skyrim standard edition at the official release, the special edition and anniversary edition, the only one i haven’t played is Skyrim VR. Pretty much every edition has the same bugs, glitches, exploits and off map exploits today that they had at the original release. I remember when data miners discovered hidden off map exploits and hidden areas that was originally planned for the expansions hidden behind a fire wall. “Far east of Red Mountain, Marrowind was discovered”

  2. I cannot get into this game. Bought it at launch, played for…. oh, 15 hours before dropping it and playing something with content. Glad others enjoy it, but it’s all I’ve seen lately and still wonder what I was missing.

      1. I think what he means is that BotW is thinned out by its enormous size, and offer a lot of traveling and exploration, rather than having a more compact experience. Which to certain degree leeds to you having to find your own fun in the game; which isn’t for everybody.

        1. Oh I see, that type of content. Sorry, his comment confused me because Zelda BOTW has tons of actual content.
