Looks like a lot of folks are now also comparing BotW to the new Pokemon footage.

My 3 favourites are:

1 - A Link to the Past (love the game but mostly just #1 for nostalgia)
2 - Breath of the Wild (Objectively the best one in virtually every way)
3 - Wind Waker (Best music, story, and characters, second best art direction)

beyond those three it gets kind of muddled. II and Skyward Sword are at the bottom (not counting the CDi games), Ocarina of Time is simply okay, most of the handheld games are good but not great.

I'm sure that's the case for most people where they have a clear top 3 and everything below that is subject to change about.

Guess if I were to make a top it'll go like this :

1. BOTW (Unconditionally my best gaming experience so far, also my first entry into the 3D Zelda)

2. Minish Cap (Truly love the sprite artstyle in this one)

3. Oracle of Seasons/Ages



Switch Friend Code : 3905-6122-2909 

1. Skyward Sword (best story, soundtrack and dungeons, by a long shot)

2. Breath of the Wild (it's Breath of the Wild)

3. A Link to the Past (near flawless game)

Those 3 are the 10/10 Zeldas for me. There are many other great games in the series, but those 3 are just on a different level. Of course, by now it should be known how I feel about these games anyway.

Even after 2 years people are still finding new ways to do things and tricks right now they're turning BOTW into a pseudo action game.



Get Hyped



So, when do you folks expect BOTW 2? Late 2020? Early 2021?



 

 

 

 

 

Kind of intrigued what they're going to fo with this one. Will this be a more narrative-driven game? Will Zelda play a bigger role? Will the game take place in a new overworld or in what it looks like a huge building coming under the castle? Those are things that could help refreshing the BotW formula.

Exciting times ahead, pretty much the only thingy that made the Direct worthwhile to me.



Look at that cover! Its so cute!
