My 5 Favorite Moments of the Ganon Boss Fight in 'Breath of the Wild'

After more than a year of playing the game on and off, I finally decided save Hyrule once and for all.

My 5 Favorite Moments of the Ganon Boss Fight in 'Breath of the Wild'

5. Getting All the Captured Memories

This main quest was a fun way of implementing our detectives skills all around Hyrule. After getting the 12 photos and finding their locations, Impa gives us a final one which reveals arguably the most emotional scene between Zelda and Link in the game, if not ever. And of course getting all 13 gives you a bonus cut screen after defeating Ganon.

4. Exploring Hyrule Castle

Running away from Guardians might make this final challenge tricky, and the maze-like map is no help either but it does offer Link many treasures like the Hylian Shield, the best one in the game. You also get to see what Ganon has done to the place, making your final objective that much more fun.

3. The Divine Beasts Being Put to Good Use

With all 4 beasts being given back to the champions, Ganon is on the weaker end of the fight as they take away half his health before the fight even starts. But don't feel bad for him, after all he has imprisoned Zelda for 100 years.

2. Squaring Off Against Ganon Himself

It is what we have been waiting to do the entire game, and in my case 65 hours as that is how much time I have put into this game! Once Ganon is released from his cucun, the Divine Beasts have unleashed their attacks, and the Master Sword is pulled out, it's game on! And although it only took me about 10 minutes to defeat him in both his forms (those shield deflects were not working in my favor) it was a heart racing experience I won't soon forget!

1. The Princess is Finally Freed

The guilt I felt for not getting to Ganon sooner (again, 65 hours of gameplay previous to the fight) weighed on me until I finally decided I was ready to complete my task, save Hyrule and free the princess. Seeing Zelda and her knight in shining armor (or in this case Champion's Tunic) reunite after 100 years did bring a tear to my eye. After all the journey of Breath of the Wild' was over. That is I thought it was until I saw I only had 18% completion. Oh well, back to shrine hunting I go!

Top 10 Reasons My School Rocks!

Why I Chose a Small School Over a Big University.

I was asked so many times why I wanted to go to a small school when a big university is so much better. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure a big university is great but I absolutely love going to a small school. I know that I miss out on big sporting events and having people actually know where it is. I can't even count how many times I've been asked where it is and I know they won't know so I just say "somewhere in the middle of Wisconsin." But, I get to know most people at my school and I know my professors very well. Not to mention, being able to walk to the other side of campus in 5 minutes at a casual walking pace. I am so happy I made the decision to go to school where I did. I love my school and these are just a few reasons why.
