I wasn't sure how much I'd like Breath of the Wild, either, because I really don't get in to open world games all that much, but I thought the game was borderline perfect. To each his own, though.
I gave up and sold Ni No Kuni 2 just a few weeks after its release because the game was braindead easy and that just made it boring. I've been told that there is a hard mode now, so I may have to give it a try sometime.
I've been playing Octopath Traveller a bit lately. The game is gorgeous in an old-school-made-new way. It's no secret that the game esentially tells 8 separate stories. Each character is introduced by playing through a chapter, so the game essentially starts by picking a character, playing their first chapter, traveling to the next town, playing a new character's chapter, etc. I'm on my 6th character right now and have probably logged about 6 hours. The game seems like it will be long and deep. Combat is really good, again, in an old-school turn-based way. Fans of classic RPGs, especially older Final Fantasy games, should love it.
