Zelda's combat is what it is because it's a game made for kids. They've always been made for kids first. It's why the combat in any zelda game is a kiddy pool when compared to something like GoW 2018. BotW has a lot of weapons but thats because BotW is wide, not deep. Every weapon has an extremely limted amount of moveset and the game never demands that you become proficient with any of it.Zelda had the perfect combat for the type of game it was, just like games like Alundra and even that prince of persia game you have on your picture where you can't even die. It's the basic hack n slash for action adventure games. The fact that botw has some many type of weapons and other ways to combat other than using weapons is amazing considering the last 18 zelda games all you had was like 3 swords per game.
