Somebody please tell me I am not the only one that can’t stand Zelda’s voice acting. I am more than halfway through the game, and I see no saving grace.

Well, just being real, it's a Nintendo game. They don't have the best track record on this front. BOTW's VA is actually significantly better than a lot of their past games'. I didn't have a problem with Zelda's VA, but I've seen plenty of people complain about it so you aren't alone.

No joke, I just came here after watching a bunch of his videos.

Some of the stuff in that video is new to me too.

...spin-offs are still better for all of the previously cited reasons.
But not strictly better, because the spinoff can have a different cost than the expansion.
I hereby declare myself the best dominion player in the world. Obviously.

I got the bike!

I agree the new Shrines were of much higher caliber, as was the new dungeon and boss fight.

How do you feel about   moat  though? I was disappointed.

Unrelated, Moldugas are awesome.

In fact, I am glad I left the Gerudo region for last. The whole thing is fantastic, and I wish other regions had received the amount of attention that one has. Gerudo town in particular oozes charm.

No Gerudo valley theme, alas...

Lack of Gerudo valley theme really killed it for me, sadly. I think the Rito village is my favorite village-ish area, but they don't give you nearly enough reasons to keep coming back to it.

I previously finished the game 100% on regular mode.

I just finished the game 100% on Master Mode including all the DLC 1 and 2 including getting and upgrading all available armor. I'm not sure if I'm proud of that accomplishment or not given the number of hours I spent on the game, which I obviously really enjoy. I did not, however, get all the chests.

Master Mode was at times so not fun that I nearly quit especially at the beginning. Never enough weapons, money, supplies and sometimes hardly any way to get them. I didn't particularly enjoy trying to avoid every fight possible. Beginning Trial of the Sword was brutally difficult (room 10 in particular).

My wife and kids think I am nuts but there it is.

So, after not playing for almost a year, I decided to try out Master Mode.

My goal was to play enough that I could be strong enough to beat the game, without doing any of the divine beasts.

It was a lot of fun. Exploring around to randomly find shrines felt mostly new, as I didn't remember where most shrines were. The beginning is super tough; you basically just have to avoid all enemy encounters, as you won't be able to defeat most enemies before you break every weapon you have.

I eventually got enough shrines to get the master sword (trading in the couple stamina upgrades I'd gotten to get it sooner). With the Master Sword, I was able to defeat most enemies, though I still died a fair amount of the time. Upgrading armor seemed to help a lot.

So once I got 16 hearts and a couple stamina upgrades (64 shrines done), I headed to Hyrule Castle. Got the Hylian Shield. The Ganon fight is insanely difficult. Having to go through all 4 bosses wasn't too bad, though it used up several of my healing items.

The second half of the first phase of Ganon is where it gets crazy. He will be invincible most of the time; you can only damage him when he does something that you can counter. (Either parry a beam, or flurry rush a sword strike). This lets you do a bit of damage before he goes invincible again. The problem is, in Master Mode, he heals while you aren't doing him damage. And he's invincible, so he's going to heal every time. You need a combination of luck, hoping that he attacks quickly enough that he hasn't healed too much yet, and perfect play, because if you miss a single counter, then he will almost always be fully healed before you can touch him again.

The first time I did this fight, I spent over an hour fighting him. Him constantly healing back to full (technically back to half, where he is when he enters the second part), and me constantly healing back to full thanks to having lots of food. But he won the war of attrition; eventually I used up all of my hundreds of healing items. And eventually my Hylian Shield broke, at which point it becomes just a waiting game until you die. I was using damage+ items as well, but they ran out too quickly.

The second time, I prepared more... got several fairies, several more full-heal items, several more damage+ items. And upgraded my armor more. I over-prepared though; I eventually beat him with a fair number of healing items, attack+ items, and fairies left. The final phase is just as easy in Master Mode as it is normally. Still fun though.

The last thing I want to do before I call it quits again is to get enemies upgraded to the new Gold level. I finally found some Gold Lizalfos... they did not disappoint. Aside from just being Gold, they seem to increase their numbers as well. The camp I found had 2 Black, 2 Silver, and 2 Gold Lizalfos. Even though I had multiple fairies going into it, I died 4-5 times before I finally defeated them all. I'll keep killing more random enemies until I see Gold of all 4 types (including the Gold Lynel), and then I'll be done.

Craziest thing happened to me today. I was trying to get my horse from across the shore line where the red pin on the map is, fell in the water, and he just kept swimming. Straight through the Necluda Sea to the edge of the world

Man. I had four strips of bacon yesterday. Was one automatically undercooked, one automatically overcooked? No, let's put a stop to that right here, all four strips were excellent.

Speaking of weird horse stuff, apparently you can use a trick to get hundreds of horses gathered in one place. It looks awesome.
