I don't understand why Legend of Zelda fans hate and bash on the main games

#1GlitchySkyrimPosted 7/12/2012 3:06:39 AM
I mean, I come from the Final Fantasy boards, so I'm used to people bashing good games simply because it's not what they like, but in FF each game changes significantly from the last.

In Legend of Zelda, each game changes the formula a little bit but keeps the basic gameplay the same. OoT, Majora's Mask, Wind Waker, Twilight Princess, and Skyward Sword each have the same core gameplay but their own unique gimmicks to alter the experience like TP's wolf form or WW's ocean. None of the games are badly made and they all are satisfying Zelda experiences. I've seen WW hate and TP hate and I can't understand why someone who claims to be a huge fan of OoT can go and hate its sequels when they share so much in common except for nostalgia.

I kind of agree. I have yet to play a Zelda game I don't like, but there were definitely those I didn't LOVE.

I may be wrong here, but "bashing" for most Zelda fans simply means the game is not quite up to their expectations, not that it's a broken or unplayable mess. I'm a TP hater, for example, but I just find it a boring Zelda game. As a game in general, it's very very good.

Had a Street Fighter signature for four years, but Crapcom doesn't deserve such recognition anymore.

Are there any good riddle threads over there? In the FF lands?

see, I understand that. People may love one Zelda game more than another, but to love one of the main series games and say that another one is s*** doesn't even make sense when they're all so similar. It's not like FF where each game is completely different from the last one.

FF boards suck and are filled with mostly idiots and a handful of intelligent people.

Oh, I see. Thanks for replying.

I even like Phantom Hourglass and Spirit Tracks, although both of them are among my least favorite Zelda games (along with the Four Swords games). I have never played a Zelda game that I didn't like, there are just some that I like much more than others.

Fix'd.








...Well, OK, maybe not all of them. Was just feeling a bit trollish there. =/

It's a trend with each new game. Unless we got a game that causes a bigger impact than OOT did, it's here to stay.

Is that really necessary?

Anyway, I still love every Zelda game
