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.
