I just recently started playing Ocarina of Time on my 3DS :)

How do you like it? How does it compare to the original?


Guess  I'm not the right person to answer that, I never played the original :P My best friend is a huge Zelda fan and he got me the 3DS version for Christmas.

It's a great game, there's no doubt about it.

But you haven't rated it yet?! :O



I'm on Twitter @DanneSandin!

Furthermore, I think VGChartz should add a "Like"-button.

I will! It might take me a while though, I'm kinda slow when it comes long videogames.

Thing is, although that may sound cool and everything to someone who's played all the Zelda's, I don't think it would sell all too well. Remember how MM and WW didn't sell so good because they didn't fall in line with the expectations people have on a Zelda game?

Yes I know, I just wouldn't like a situation where Nintendo feels it has to play it safe with Zelda. I'm not saying they already do that, but I'm not sure Majora's Mask would still get greenlighted today... 

As someone else pointed out already, MM also suffered from the second Zelda / late in cycle syndrome. Many games that appear at the end of a console's life perform relatively poorly, look at Mario Party 9 in contrast to MP8 (and 9 is said to be the much better game).

And WW probably suffered from the small install base of GC.

Nintendo EAD seems to have a rhythm going: one traditional Zelda, then one unorthodox Zelda. There are a few exceptions, but this seems to be a trend. I really like that strategy, because it keeps the formula fresh and it satisfies a large group of fans.

I don't know, I don't really feel like Nintendo is trying to make an "Ocarina-killer" every time out. With the possible exception of Skyward Sword. I think everyone knew what they were doing with SS: it was meant to reinvent the series. Whether it was successful in doing so is a debate for another time, but it definitely STRIVED for greatness.

Anyway, I think you are right. Nintendo shouldn't be afraid to experiment with Zelda.

Twilight Princess was probably the most ocarinakillery Zelda. Skyward Sword may not have been that unconventional in story, but gameplay was revolutionized, in my opinion. I would even go as far as to say that every single dungeon of SS beats all previous dungeons. o_O Well most. I'm not a dungeon guy, tbh, I positively dreaded entering dungeons in some Zelda games, and SS made them so much more enjoyable for me. Too bad that some important parts of SS didn't end up perfect - the sky, the slow opening sequenze, the flying, the lack of a coherent overworld. That turned off many people before they saw the brilliant parts of the game design (which FAR outweigh the flaws). 

All in all I'm confident that Zelda is in the right hands and on track. They hardly ever let me down (Spirit Tracks was the only misstep ever since they allowed Capcom to mess with a LTTP construction kit).

What?! The stories continued after that game??? What happened to him???

(..)

I don't know.

He is personally mentioned in the prologue of the Wind Waker, several times during Twilight Princess and because of what is now said about it in Hyrule Historia, you could say it's implied in the prologue to ALttP that he died at some point before that (though ofcourse that was never written as such back then). Plus the ending to Majora's Mask doesn't exacly wrap things up.

So now there are explanations for the Wind Waker and A Link to the Past stories, but all the references to him in Twilight Princess don't. Some people believe the 'Hero's Shade', the ghost-character that teaches you new moves inside a dream world, is in fact the Hero of Time, mainly because he knows so much about that Link while most of his adventures didn't actually happen for the TP timeline due to timeline issues caused in OoT. Personally I don't think it is Link, but if it is, how? What happened there? It gets quite complicated because of the split timelines and stuff to figure out what happened prior to what game and what in TP could reference the OoT/MM Link though. Like the green tunic in TP, said to have belonged to a 'Legendary Hero', or the Hero's Bow, said by the Gorons to have belonged to one that helped them centuries ago.

Concerning Majora's Mask, the game starts with Link searching for 'a friend', of whom it can be assumed is Navi the fairy since she's abscent, while riding through a dark forest. At the end of the game however, Link is seen riding off through the same woods someplace else, presumably continueing his initial quest before he got interupted by the Skull Kid. This leaves a very open end.
