The Legend of Zelda
Posted 5/15/07 , edited 4/12/08
i love the legend of zelda and my favorite one is ocarina of time.
but i have to say, i am starting to get a little bored with the formula.
i havent beaten twilight princess yet because it is difficult for me to play for a long period of time. the age of the franchise is showing and while it is a great game, i think this will be the last zelda game i play.

the legend of zelda series is a very good series but also very confusing. the order the games in whic the games are released dont make sense. If u think back to ocarina of time there are 2 ending to the game. leaving 2 timelines to the series. the series started in the minish cap where zelda got his green hat. makes sense right? then ocarina of time. the creator of the zelda series admitted a while back that ocarina of time was the first game. but then the minish cap came into the line. but there might be a split timeline. 2 realms, 2 hyrules. Link was sent back to a child so there is one realm. Zelda and Link as kids. And the realm with adult Zelda but with a sealed away Ganon with no Link. If your interested in what i just said watch this video and learn about the split timeline theory.

The legend of zelda is one of my favourite series. There have been imitations, but nothing comes close to the pure coolness of zelda. I played it first on the N64, then gameboy and so on.

Lol I am the biggest Zelda Fan ever, I own and have beaten every game, I even kept a tally of how many times I beat each one.

Here it is, everything else is at one.
Loz (first one) - 10
Link's Awakening - 3
Lttp - 2
OoT - 7
MM - 4
WW - 3


Looks like you are missing two games. Even the http://www.legendofzelda.com is missing two of the Legend of Zelda games that was made. No one really remembers this, but two Legend of Zelda games were made for the Phillips CD-I system. I missed a chance of buying it off of Ebay and then I would have been able to say for myself that I own every Legend of Zelda game ever created for a gaming system. The games were "The Faces of Evil" and "The Wand of Gamelon". It seems a lot of gaming sites that try to put the whole Legend of Zelda time line together have also forgotten the existence of these two games. If anyone does own one the two games I listed I just want to say I'm jealous.

P.S. My first Legend of Zelda game was The Legend of Zelda for NES and it was the gold colored cartridge.

He's also missed Link's Adventure for NES, Oracle of Ages & Seasons for Gameboy Color, Minish Cap for Gameboy Advance, Four Sword Adventure for both Gameboy Advance & Gamecube, Twilight Princess for Gamecube & Wii and the recently released game Phantom Hourglass for DS.

I actually played through some of the major Zelda titles over the summer. LTTP, OOT, and TP. Only Zelda game I had beaten before this was WW.

I thought they were all good, though I was really impressed with TP. They took the standard Zelda fair and really made it into something special.

If anyone REALLY wants to know my detailed opinion of those games I beat over the summer, message me for a link to my blog that I never update anymore.

lol the first zelda game i played was on the nes with 2-d flat characters! lol its good to know things have developed since then. Played twilight princess for gamecube, I don't know why but i loved windwaker and a link to the past. I had the best time playing Ocarina of time with my brother though, we could never find the vines to climb up the walls. Still the gerudo place in that game was the greatest event/temple out of all.

Zelda is really starting to turn me off. I am getting sick and tired of nintendo keep recycling the same last boss... Gannon I mean seriously how many times you going to kill that dude? Does he have infinite lives I mean come on man. And each new release of zelda is getting terribly kiddy and retardly easy. Think I am lieing go play twilight princess and tell me if you had a hard time with any of the bosses. O well I hope one day zelda will get a tad bit more difficult and a little bit more mature.

Typically, each Zelda "generation" has one conventional (defeat gannon, save the princess) game and one (major) unconventional game. This isn't including the myriad of oddball games and releases.

Zelda => Zelda II
Link to the Past => Link's Awakening
Ocarina of Time => Majora's Mask
Windwaker => Four Swords

Each game on the left is the traditional Zelda experience. Venture to the dungeon to find the next magic item that lets you venture to the next dugeon to etc etc etc until you finally are able to confront Gannon. The same basic plot remade for a new generation of consoles and gamers, usually with a bit of twist (i.e WW had lots of sea travel, TP had wolf form, etc).

However, each game on the right is highly unconventional and bears little semblance to the traditional style. In each of those games, Gannon is not the major boss, and while gameplay is still adventure/exploratory in nature, it usually has some major twists on it.

Complaining about games being "childish" is indicative of being insecure about your own maturity. If you were mature, you either wouldn't play the game in the first place or you would be able to accept the game for what it is and enjoy it regardless. Why play a game that you feel is beneath you? I don't play "barbie's horse adventure" nor do I expect them to change it to meet my tastes.

I've often found the most immature of gamers tend to gravitate to the darker and/or more violent of games - it appeals not only to their base instincts but gives them the illusion of maturity by indulging in graphic content. I'm not saying all dark and/or violent games are devoid of merit, but gamers who gravitate almost exclusively towards the most extreme of content tend to be very immature. Similar to how young anime fans call simplistic garbage like "elfen lied" mature and deep when it's nothing of the sort.

In short, there are plenty of Zelda games that deviate from the standard plot line. I think Twilight Princess is about as non-kiddie as Zelda is capable of being so, not only is your complaint indicative of your own insecurities but ill founded as well. I will agree that that TP was too easy (I rarely ever dipped below half health and I am no gaming adept). That being said, I don't wish for Zelda to become absurdly hard, maybe just provide a bit more of a challenge to the player. What merit is there in accomplishment if little was risked to obtain it? Then it's just an exercise of patience. That's fine for an RPG where strategy is more important than button mashing, but an action/adventure game should present more of a challenge.

Wow you didnt have to get aggressive at all these are just my opinions. If you dont like it then tough. I am not going to give credit to an overrated game that should have been much better then it is right now. As of today I still think the only zelda game with the best story line and was a bit difficult was the zelda on the snes. I am sorry but my opinion wont change. Zelda is getting kiddy and this is my opinion like I said and I am not insecure of my maturity. I am not expecting a bloody game full of curse words etc. I am not saying zelda should be that way but just some how take out a lot of the kiddy dialouge you have with some of the characters in the game.

The reason I played zelda was because I was curious of how the last one would be compared to the others because yes I am a zelda fan. But it is sad that they just cant go back to the formula they had no the snes. Hell link was bad on links awakening. Tons of weapons and usefull magic. When I play these new zeldas on these consoles all you need is a sword thats it. You get a bunch of cool stuff for looks but isn't to usefull after you used them for awhile.

It is like from every zelda game you know what to expect. I am sorry there are never any twists in zelda. I play zelda games and it is already embedded in my head I will be fighting gannon no matter how many times nintendo tries to fool you to thinking you are fighting someone completly different for the first time. Hmm no wonder why people are seeing nintendo as a kiddy system and most of their games are geared for little kids. O well like I said these are just my opinions.

all you've done is state that your opinions are opinions, you backed up very little aside from mentioning the simplicity of the combat in more recent generations.

personally, i felt the battle system introduced in OOT, then improved in WW was just fine. timing attacks, hitting vital areas, balancing between blocking and attacking, as well as occasionally using side items. TP made it all the more interesting by using the Wii controls, though it was still basically the same system.

Twilight Princess is actually the most mature Zelda titles in the series. It's much darker and ominous. Granted the game was a little bit too easy but it was a good game nonetheless, The reason why most Zelda games are easy is because every bosses that you encounter you can defeat them with the items that you've just gotton in that dungeon. So the bosses tends to be very predictible.

Ganondorf is the series mainstay. Bowser is exactly the same in Mario games. Does that makes the Mario titles worse because Bowser is in most Mario games? No he is the main villain and arsh rival to Mario just like Ganondorf is the main villain and arch rival to Link. Plus there can't be any other evil villain holding the Triforce of Power.

As for the Wii being a "Kiddie" console you're wrong. The Wii is made for everyone in mind. Kids, adults and ederly alike can play on the Wii. Wii offers many different genre of inttelectual properties that is geared toward a specific audience in mind.
