Why isn't Twilight Princess your favorite Zelda game?

A Link to the Past, the Oracle games and Link's Awakening all exist.

So why, board?

Story wasn't all that (but that is to be expected), characters serve their purpose and are then promptly forgotten about,
aesthetics (graphics) is subjective, music is standard Zelda, map feels empty, you can't switch controls, and sales =/= quality.

Console wars are like pissing contests. So yeah.

Midna

I know she's loved by many, but I can't stand her. She's bossy, condescending, and turns Link, the "hero", into her freaking errand boy. I do not like her at all.

I love the dungeons, love the combat and items and puzzles, love riding around on Epona, but every time Midna shows up it kills the game for me.

Zelda cycle. Give it a few more years and people will be calling it the best Zelda and one of the best games of all time.

I think we all can say that the Zelda cycle is true.

>best story, easily most cinematic - cinematic does not equal good
>mass array of characters, with character growth - there were more characters than Midna? If so they weren't particularly memorable.
>best graphics,avoiding cel shading and bloom lighting -I like cell-shading. Everything looks bland in Twilight Princess.
>best music - Definitely not, I can't remember a single track. Majora's Mask, OOT, Wind Waker, Skyward Sword and A Link Between had memorable sound tracks. The only thing I remember about TP sound design was the annoying blare the twilight birds would make.
>biggest map - Maybe, I don't know, but every 2D Zelda has a more densely packed map with better use of space.
>choice of controls I prefer GCN controls
>best selling LOL
>inexpensive to pick up Not on Gamecube :(

So why, board?

>best story, easily most cinematic First, wrong. Second, irrelevant.
>mass array of characters, with character growth A throwaway villain who had nothing to give him weight, and a sidekick who was thrown out at the end.
>best graphics,avoiding cel shading and bloom lighting Earth tones are not fun to look at.
>best music Meh.
>biggest map Hidden behind the most gratuitous use of plot barriers.
>choice of controls I DID like the addition of combat skills like Minish Cap had.
>best selling I so highly doubt this that my DOG is flying.
>inexpensive to pick up How is this relevant in the slightest?

So why, board? Because your ability to troll is lacking.

Because when I was a kid and booted up Ocarina of Time I'll never forget the feeling of wonder and awe the game gave me.

Cel-shaded Zelda is best Zelda.

Don't rock the boat. Don't even get in the boat! Just buy some ice cream and walk around the pier. But don't go in the bathrooms; they're filthy!
