The Zelda series does a fantastic job of reinventing the wheel with each game, developing the world-building and culture of Hyrule as the series has progressed. If I had to pick a version of Hyrule that I would want to live in, I’d pick Breath of the Wild. Ocarina of Time is a very close second, since it’s among one of the first Zelda games I played and I loved exploring every nook and cranny Hyrule had to offer.
But ultimately, the amount of time devoted to crafting quaint towns and cultures nestled across the desolate Hyrule in Breath of the Wild makes it a world worth exploring and living in. Sure, the Guardians would be absolutely terrifying and destroy me on the spot, but since they seem to hunt down Link exclusively in the present, I think I’d be okay (plus, if I live in the world post-game, then it’s no problem!). But what makes Breath of the Wild‘s Hyrule so unique is that each town has a noticeable culture within it. From the foods people eat to the lifestyles they practice, Breath of the Wild‘s Hyrule is fleshed out, resulting in a world that feels alive and realistic. What do you think? If you could pick a version of Hyrule to live in, which one would it be? Let us know in the comments!
