The whole reason I bought a Switch was for this game. I was on the fence about purchasing a Nintendo Switch at all.; after playing Breath of the Wild on my friend's console, my mind was made up. I purchased a Switch with peripherals and a couple of games (including BOTW). I have had my new console for several months and have yet to play any game other than Breath of the Wild. The music, graphics, and game-play have kept me enthralled for months. You can definitely complete BOTW in linear fashion but the rewards from deviating from the main quests are endless. I think I played 10 hours of sheer exploration (intro aside) before remotely getting to the main story line. Would definitely recommend.
