I've been playing The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword since it's the earliest Zelda game chronologically and Tears of the Kingdom has sky islands, too.

So I want to beat Skyward Sword before playing Tears of the Kingdom and I'm currently a bit over half way. But I kept hearing about how amazing TotK is, which made me want to play Breath of the Wild. So I booted that up for the first time in ages and it wasn't long before I got to wondering... [i]why did I stop playing this?[/i]

I only stopped for one reason. I lost my damn copy lol. Idk where the cartridge went at all. I 100%ed everything in the game, too, except for finding all 900 korok seeds which Idc about and also I didn't complete Trial Of The Sword. Sucks that I didn't get to all just because of losing my cartridge.

@IWasCallingYaLarry Well I definitely wont be getting all of them. And I just remembered that you give those seeds to someone, so I would have found more than 40. I'd been thinking it seemed like a small amount and now I know why.

@Redstar yeah you give them to Hestu who rewards you with more slots to hold up to more items, weapons, shields, etc.I only found 165, so that means there's 735 I never found lol.

@IWasCallingYaLarry Thanks but I'd found him again already. Also, I learned something you might want to know if you don't yet: They added that many korok seeds so people wouldn't have the pressure of finding all of them. Since only 441 can be used to increase your item slots and with so many more out there, you'd often still be able to find new things to discover and do. Which would also explain the reward for finding them all.
I know it's still a thing left undone but maybe it'll make it easier on you knowing that you weren't even meant to find all the seeds in the first place.

I stopped playing for 2 main reasons:
-having a console is really inconvenient
-I'm too cheap to buy a Nintendo

I will still always have a special place in my heart for Zelda tho

@Fishy Ah, fair enough then.

They really are too expensive. Breath of the Wild came out, what, 7 years ago? And it's not much cheaper than Tears of the Kingdom.
I only bought my Switch after one of the rare times that I had more money than usual.

Oh yeah, the sales on steam are fantastic. I don't use my computer for gaming much though, mostly just Visual Novels or little games like Helltaker. Always preferred a controller over a mouse and keyboard, unless it's something like Age of Empires of course.

@Redstar Yeah, I always preferred the controller too

Most games on Steam nowadays have controller support with USB controllers, which is pretty cool
Redstar · 36-40, M
@Fishy Yeah, I've done that a bit with older games. So it's not exclusively the not wanting to use a mouse thing, I guess that's just carried over from before you could commonly use controllers.
I feel more comfortable playing on a console, cause I can sit and play while still having total access to the computer without having to alt+tab.
But my laptop isn't good enough to play a lot of newer games anyway. Or it will run them but they're still not really playable, regardless of how low the settings are.
