I've seen a couple from a distance and I have a quest specifically to deal with one of them but I'm too scared to attempt it yet! I too am enjoying exploring with few specific aims in mind. It's fun to scale a mountain, find a shrine or tower in the distance and simply head off in that direction.

I've only done a couple of them, but they were both really creative and entertaining. I don't think they truly replace dungeons because they're quite short, but they have a very different feel to the shrines. I don't want to say too much for risk of spoiling the surprises, but the final parts of each do feel like classic Zelda.

Finally did my first divine beast last night. It was great. So much of this game is beyond my expectations - not because I thought it would be bad but because I have no Zelda reference point, and in my mind I was expecting a sort of arcadey Skyrim. It's so, so much more than that. In a way I feel lucky that this is my first Zelda game as my knowledge of the world and characters is minimal, and the snippets of things I recognise from cultural exposure are being given meaning as I play, much like how (minor spoiler maybe but not really) Link recovers his memories of the world throughout the game.

The 10/10 scores aren't an exaggeration, at least not from my experience of the game. It's already up there with the likes of Witcher 3 and BG2 as one of my favourite games of all time.

The game's been patched to give better frame rates in certain areas.

Typical really, the biggest problem area for me was surrounding the Master Sword... which I finally obtained yesterday and have no reason to go back there so far.
