I live in Finland.Where you live? In a home with internet access? Sounds more like civilization than wilderness.
After hiking couple of weeks in northern Finland far from civilization, I found our nature calm and not hostile. In north you can find deserted areas that are thousands of square kilometres wide and do long hikes without seeing another human being. And it's safe. We don't have dangerous animals except bears but it's extremely rare to see one so if you have good survival and orienteering skills, nature can offer amazing experience. When I stood on top of high arctic hill hearing absolutely nothing, not even wind, and seeing only forests and lakes, or when swam in still lake in middle of a night, I got feeling that nature is calm. But my experiences are limited, I haven't done hikes outside of Finland so there where you live nature might be different.
I find Breath of the Wild good title because I don't associate it with anything negative. I'm a person who loves nature thus BotW was perfect game for me. When I think the title, it reminds me my hikes. It brings back the memory of sleeping under the stars in sleeping bag and hearing nothing else but subtle breeze of wind in trees.
