2The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

Breath of the Wild is a Zelda game like no other. It takes the world of Hyrule and transforms it into a huge, beautiful, sprawling open world. Gone is the linear storyline that Link must follow to save Princess Zelda; instead, players are free to traverse the world as they see fit. Heck, you can head straight to Hyrule Castle to face off against Ganon if you wish – but we wouldn’t recommend it.

Traditional dungeons are instead replaced with over 100 puzzle Shrines dotted around the world. They’re all optional, but completing them will reward Link with useful items to aid him in his journey. It’s a game that very much puts the player in control of their own destiny. The freedom that Breath of the Wild gives is unlike anything else we’ve played before, and for that reason it’s one of the best exclusive games on Switch – and perhaps one of the best games of all time, period.
