It seems as though The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild got some things right, because Game Grumps history has been made as both Grumps are equally enjoying a Zelda game. Arin Hanson (aka Egoraptor) is internet infamous for his criticisms several beloved Zelda games. In particular, his Sequelitis videos make strong charges against gameplay and presentation elements of Ocarina of Time, Majora’s Mask, and Skyward Sword. Breath of the Wild seems to be a different story.
Arin has the controls while Danny provides the oohs, ahhs, and appreciation the viewers may feel as they watch a truly great game being played. The game is very open ended with minimal dialogue and instruction, which is perfect for this duo. It gives them the time and space that allows for exploration, observation, and banter, which is what the Grumps do best. And as Danny and Arin have played through so many Zelda titles previously, they have a lot of fun making connections during this playthrough to previous games and previous playthroughs of those games. The game itself being fun only adds to the watch-ability of the series.
If you are looking to watch a Let’s Play of Breath of the Wild, Arin’s issues with previous Zelda games and his enjoyment of this game makes the Game Grumps playthrough a great choice.
