Before…IF you, like me were feeling that the reduced challenge over time was impacting your sense of adventure.
I abandoned my 100 hour plus playthrough (~100 shrines, 3/4 Divine beasts) when the first DLC came out and restarted in Master Mode. My second playthrough also had some rules: no shrine locator and only enough hearts to do the master sword trials. I really am enjoying slowly working through it all again with the added difficulty. I honestly wish that the game did more to keep you on your toes.
I’m not some masochistic, “true gamer” type, it’s more that I tend to not go out of my way to create my own challenges or play around with physics for their own sake (Minecraft holds no appeal for me). I need the game to give me some constraints to force me to interact with all of it’s systems. The guys at Cool Ghosts had a nice discussion about this when they were talking about Horizon Zero Dawn and how one of them only really began to enjoy it on Hard because it made him really think out each encounter and to use more improvisation.
