There’s not much I love more than a solid, single-player gaming experience with a good story and fun gameplay. But even then, sometimes I find myself thinking, “Dang, I’d love to have a friend playing this with me!” Taking an adventure meant for one and expanding it for multiple people is a thought that has captured my imagination on countless occasions, and in several series to boot.
Since The Elder Scrolls scratched this itch a bit with The Elder Scrolls Online, I’d have to shift my focus to a different series that I’ve loved for far longer: The Legend of Zelda. And yes, technically we have had this a few times between the Four Swords games and Triforce Heroes. But I’m referring to the 3D games. Can you imagine the fun and excitement of exploring an open-world Hyrule like in Breath of the Wild with a friend at your side? Puzzles would have new possibilities for solving, and taking on large groups of enemies with an ally, along with the possibility for diversions and flanking strategies, would be absolutely incredible! Throw in a character creator and non-breakable weapons and Nintendo would have a sure-fire Game of the Year on their hands!
