Since we’re a bit obsessed with Breath of the Wild after having played it for a little over a week now, Rachel and I found ourselves discussing what we would be doing if we were in Link’s shoes. It prompted us to do another round of “Would You Rather,” this time for Breath of the Wild. So, Rachel, would you rather live in Kakariko Village and assist Impa or live in Hateno Village and assist Purah?
As much as I love Impa, I’d have to say Hateno Village with Purah. The tech stuff seems really cool and I would love to have the beach right there. Kris, would you rather only have the paraglider assist you to get around or only horses assist you?
Aww, what a tough question! While I love the paraglider and flying around, I would have to go with horses. There may be places where I wouldn’t be able to have them accompany me, but I would love the animal companions. And who doesn’t like horsies? Alrightie, would you rather have the shrines be all combat orientated or physics and puzzle based?
Physics and puzzle based… You know me, I run from a fight. Would you rather go through the game using only tree branches as weapons (or the next weapon level up) or never be able to heal yourself (never be able to cook)?
Oh, geez… Considering how much I die, this is a tough question… You know what, I’d rather go through the game never being able to cook. I’m too interested in the multiple weapons to only go through the game with silly tree branches! Would you rather game over from battling a tough opponent or from falling off a mountain after running out of stamina?
You would never beat the game then, haha! I would rather die from an opponent. At least I’d have a little dignity from that death. Would you rather only have close-range weapons or long-range weapons? Like, only have swords and spears or only have a bow and arrows?
Augh, I love both the swords and the bows in this game! Despite how horrible my initial aiming would be (I would hope I’d get better with practice), I think I would choose bows. The different number of arrows — ice, bombs, electric — alone would be fun! The long-range and going against armored enemies would be a fun challenge as well. Last one, Rachel: would you rather have lived 100 years ago and been a Champion while trying to rid the world of Calamity Ganon or wake up 100 years later with Link as being the last hope against Calamity Ganon?
Neither… I told you earlier, I’d run away from a fight. I’d probably have to say wake up as Link. We all know Link would win in the end and I’m not keen on dying.
