Jesus that quote's old. Poor guy.

I guess I haven't actually weighed in on this topic yet, so: while I think the Zelda series has enough lore and archetypal story structure to formulate a movie around, part of the core experience of the Zelda series is exploring the world in Link's boots. It wasn't until relatively recently that Link was given any sort of characterization beyond "the protagonist who has no objections to going on a quest"; Any characterization was provided by other characters' dialogue about him. The player was Link, for all intents and purposes, and the game was about the player's journey through Hyrule. Creating a movie or TV series removes that aspect and that's a big part of what makes the series so good.


welp I got ninja'd but it was to re-rail the topic so go me

Wind wakers remake also had gyro bow controls, and as neat as that is, you get to physically draw the bowstring back.  It's fantastic

On topic: first Zelda could support a movie, a link to the past could, and wind waker could.  The biggest hurdle is the non-speaking thing

Twilight Princess is way worse, and the worse thing about it is that people will tell you it's amazing or the best Zelda. It's like offensively unfun.

So I have bad taste in game? :(

Lol @ slow for digging up that quote. At the time of that post, SS had only been out for like two months, so ofc I still thought it was great because it was new (like a true fanboy). The difference here is that SS hasn't aged well at all, and now that it's had time to weigh in with the rest of the series it's worst features have shined though.

There's having an unpopular opinion, then there's being wrong.

Zelda? Obnoxious, but hardly as unpleasant to look at as SS. Yeeesh that one was bad.

Also, ss was just a fun person whereas botw was like, not even there

If they were real people I know who I would hang out with and who I'd actively avoid, lets just say that

Point taken, but I was addressing your previous post which was solely about looks and obnoxiousness.

My favorite version of Zelda is probably Breath of the Wild I love her design

@olimar I happened upon that quote two days ago and was like "I need to make a mental note of this" and then lo and behold I had the opportunity
