@metrium if you would stop crying for a few seconds you would realize that those games you mentioned have one thing that Zelda doesnt, MULTIPLAYER. Like it or not that is a popular feature. Generic war fighter??? Who cares people play COD for the MP, i would bet alot of people do the same for U3, and yes it wasnt as good as U2, but the MP was an improvement.


The fact that games have multiplayer doesnt make that a studio deserves more money for puking unoriginal cashgrabs. I understand that alot of ppl buy some games for multiplayer, but imo most of them doesnt deserve the money theyr making... A game that gives you a terrible and short campaign, same features over and over again... with all that is changing year after year is pretty much the maps and the name on the box of the game doesnt deserves millions of $ by selling over 25million copy year after year just because it has good multiplayer.

And for UC3, yes the multiplayer was a improvment, but no one bought the game thinking ''oh, I cant wait to play this online... as soon as I get home, ima take that disc out of the box, put it in my ps3 and go straight to the multiplayer'' because ppl buy and want to play UC for the campaign. I played a little multiplayer and then stopped playing it, personaly I dont think UC would have deserved less sales if it didnt have multiplayer, its just a bonus. Kind of metroid prime2 and ME3, couldnt care less if it had multiplayer or not, imma buy the game anyway... play the campaign... and THEN when I have time I will TRY the multiplayer, have fun with it for few hours then move on. But that is just me and my opinion but im pretty sure tho that it IS a fact that MOST ppl who bought UC3 would have bought it if it didnt have multiplayer anyway.

Am I the only one incredibly impressed with Twilight Princess' sales? It just re-entered the charts in its 277th week. It's the third oldest charting title, the only older are New Super Mario Bros. DS and Mario Kart DS.

The bloody game has been selling more and more in USA every year since 2009 now.

2009: 197,000
2010: 215,000
2011: 313,000
2012: 50,000 so far, in a period in which ~ 18% of total software is sold, meaning it's tracking to sell nearly 300,000 this year too.

Selling more in your 7th year on the market than you did in your 4th and 5th (and possibly 6th) is just ridiculously good, and virtually unheard of. Can you name a single console game that has done that? I can't!

Worldwide, it's passed 8 million, and slowly heading on to 8.5 million now. This game has had a longevity most games could never dare dream of. It's not bundled, it's not advertised, yet somehow it pulls of great numbers year after year.

Like NintendoPie said before, your sig really does suit everything you type lol.

 

People who don’t like M+ are really not open to new things. SS opened up a whole new world with possibilities not possible with traditional controls. The bosses were amazing! I was surprised when the tentacles of the squid boss attacked me. It was the first time ever that I had to fight off something like that and I had to swing left and right fast so they wouldn’t get through.

 

TP is a very good game but too easy for my taste. SS had a great difficulty level and if you are bad with the sword then you won’t go past some of the more advanced enemies.

Wow, I just disagree with most people on this thread that SS is better than TP or that it's the best Zelda. I thought it was way too short, and I thought there was WAY too much padding.

I think for a game that was lauded as taking five years to make, there is precious little to show for it. It's filled with padding. Revisiting the same areas three or four times with slight changes in layout, fetch quests, and those horrible tear-collecting segments. Also, they re-use the same enemies over and over again. My list of grievances for SS far outweighs my list of positives. I never thought I'd say this...but Twilight Princess is no longer the worst game in the series.

Completely agree. The bolded is what makes me believe that they actually didn't improve close to anything, but just wanted to make sure something great released at all before christmas 2011.
