Light Arrows and Bows have always played a major part in Zelda games. From being the only thing that can finish off Ganon in Link to the Past to blinding his demon form at the close of Ocarina of Time, Breath of the Wild places the iconic weapon in your hands - but doesn't tell you how to deliver the killing blow.

Instead, after weakening Dark Beast Ganon enough to put him in a final state, he'll start spewing fire across the field the two of you are battling in.

It's here where - hopefully - you'll intuit that flames and smoke create updrafts. Updrafts you can dive onto, paraglider at the ready, to fly right up to the beast's eyes.

Now, with the score reaching a crescendo, the game in super slow-motion and all of Hyrule riding on that one shot, you let fly an arrow right into the creature's most critical point, winning the day.

An absolutely phenomenal way to close out the best Zelda of all time, and the best game of 2017.

Though with that said, there is one single moment that takes the cake...
