...Screws up this one? Had his fun experimenting? Poor by Zelda standards?

You do realize that he's only once made a mainline Zelda game with a lower score than a 90 on Metacritic, right? (If you consider Spirit Tracks - 87 - as mainline)

Skyward Sword is a 93.

Twilight Princess is a 95.

A Link Between Worlds is a 91.

Wind Waker (My favorite) is a flipping 96!

Need more?

Majora's Mask - 95.

Phantom Hourglass - 90

...And let's not forget the one that started his legacy - Ocarina of Time at an astounding 99.

Everything the guy touches is gold. Shigeru Miyamoto? No, Aonuma deserves way more credit. He had his fun experimenting!? HA! Experiment the hell away.

His newest games may not be your cup of tea, but they sure as hell are everyone elses.

And for the record, I personally think Skyward Sword and Wind Waker are better games than Ocarina of Time. Get at me.

Thanks, I was beginning to think I was the only person here who still likes Aonuma and isn't quite willing to throw the baby out with the bathwater.

I don't care what I could have had instead, I wouldn't trade Wind Waker for anything. And for the record I enjoy Twilight Princess and Skyward Sword as well. I have faith in Aonuma and I'm prepared to stand back and let him do his job.

Couldn't have said it better myself :)

I will never understand the hate for Aonuma.

just give me fishing in the next zelda and i'll be happy. :D
oh yeah, and those realistic visuals that we saw with the wii u tech demo.



A lot of people want voice acting in Zelda and while I am open minded about this and think voice acting in Zelda could be interesting, I also don't want a Final Fantasy X-like situation where we get stuck with a horrid English dub



Voice acting would destroy the zelda atmosphere.

Nintendo please dont do it.



How about a spin-off zelda game where you actually play as zelda and not link. Wonder why the heck Nintendo call it Legend Of Zelda where the story revolve mostly on Link.

Wind Waker is my all time favorite  game. I think Aonuma has the capability to do great work, but his vision for the Zelda series has sucked badly in my opinion. 

Twilight Princess is my least favorite console zelda. It's boring, padded, slow, and feels like a retread.

Skyward Sword is almost worse than twilight princess. It has my two favorite dungeons in the Zelda series, but other than that it is not all that great. 

The DS games are absolutely awful. Both of them are borderline unplayable.

 

That being said, I know that he can make good Zelda. Everything before Twilight Princess is god tier. ALBW is also pretty good so far. I do believe he can make a fantastic game, but a lot of his later work is poor.

Me too. It's a shame Aonuma hates us Zelda fans that prefer this. He also hated the SpaceWorld demo and the Zelda U E3 demo. The man will add nothing to Zelda but more niche artstyles and gimmicks. What is even more sad is that they were planning on releasing an HD version of Twilight Princess but scrapped it due to Aonuma favoring Wind Waker's artstyle.

NEVER FORGET!

Bold: I highly doubt that, because as the leader of everything Zelda nowadays he's responsible for those things. If he didn't want those things to be shown (or made in the first place) they wouldn't have been.

Italic: That's untrue.

If you read between the lines of Aonuma's recent interview, the future of Zelda is in for a turn for the worse.



Aonuma haters are ridiculous, what the hell?
It's not like he's done a bad game.

The SpaceWorld Demo was from before Aonuma was in charge.

The E3 2011 Demo wasn't.

EDIT: And that article also doesn't say anything about a supposed 'planning of TP HD that was cancelled in favor of WW HD', which is indeed untrue.
