Well, all that matters is that he did a good game, especially beautiful. 



My bet with The_Liquid_Laser: I think the Switch won't surpass the PS2 as the best selling system of all time. If it does, I'll play a game of a list that The_Liquid_Laser will provide, I will have to play it for 50 hours or complete it, whatever comes first.

Aonuma was against the use of Motion Control + in SS. The best feature on the game and he was against.

The director of BotW, Hidemaro Fujibayashi was also the director of Oracle of Ages, Oracle of Seasons, Four Swords, The Minish Cap and Skyward Sword and subdirector of Phantom Houtglass, many of those puzzle focused Zelda games that you don't like. 

Don't put all the blame for the series changing to something you don't like on one guy. Puzzles have been a big part of Zelda games even before Aonuma started to work on them.

The change of direction came with Aonuma on the production. It's crystal clear in Majora Mask. The idea of the Botw, with The first Zelda function like a canvas for the modern game came with Fujibayashi. Aonuma is not a fan the First Legend of Zelda, he never finished. It's a fact. 

Well that's something I share with him. On the other hand BotW is my absolute favorite. Weird huh.

For many people it was the game breaking feature. On the Switch it should be more accurate though.

Agreed, 10/10 game for me tbh.

You see this in a interview on GDC '04.

You seem to be really focused on this fact

This is an interview from 2004, where he talks about something even further in the past. He also says he never thought he'd be making games similar to that, meaning he's changed his mind. He also mentions in that interview that A Link to the Past is what got him into Zelda, a game very similar in style to the original Zelda, just more refined.

The title of the link is also "Aonuma hates zelda", which is just horrible clickbait and the entire article just reads like a disgruntled entitled fanboy who didn't get what he wanted. 

On a different note, Aonuma was also director on Ocarina of Time. So why does he get the blame for Majora's Mask (whatever is even to blame) and not the praise on Ocarina of Time. Miyamoto was producer on all these games.
He was also Franchise Supervisor on Hyrule Warriors, which had an amazing amount of fan service and incredible throwbacks to the original Zelda.

In Ocarina he's in charge of Water Temple. 

Aonuma is Shigeru'protegee. Shiggy is responsible for employee Aonuma. He sees himself on Aonuma. But Aonuma is not at the same level.
