I've recently stumbled across some strange people who think Eiji Aonuma is the reason why the Zelda series has started to decline. However, he was a designer as early as OoT, and was in charge of what would go on to be the best Zelda ever, Majora's Mask.

So what exactly is the beef that people have with him?

Because it took him this long to make A Link Between Worlds

Generally they hate that he puts puzzles in his games, from what I've read

Seriously? What is Zelda without its puzzles? >_>

They liked Zelda 1 where the only puzzles were pushing a single block and bombing a wall >_>

His comment about not liking LoZ1 because he can't get past the first 5 minutes or something made retro Zelda fans angry. Hopefully ALBW staying true to ALttP helped that.

I'm sorry put please don't state that one of the Zelda games is the best ever. There is no fact proving that any of them are the "best" and the closest one that would be considered the best is Ocarina of Time. Based on popularity at least.

Twilight Princess, doe.

I'm pretty sure Majora's Mask has surpassed Ocarina of Time in popularity at this point. Or is at least very close to it. Of course, me saying MM is the best ever should just be taken as my opinion. I also happen to think SS is just as good as Ocarina.

You've gotta be kidding. You're too used to the vocal minority on the internet. The vast majority of people IRL aged 20-30 will prefer OoT.

The vast majority of people IRL probably haven't even played Majora's Mask, or any of the Zeldas afterwards. Why should their opinions be the only ones that count?

Poll this board. At least we know these people are active Zelda fans. Let's see what they think.
