I thought we should have a thread to discuss the Legend of Zelda games, especially with Skyward Sword so close!

  • I never played the Oracle games.

    In fact, the only Zelda game I've ever played on a handheld is Link's Awakening. (I've played Minish Cap, but that was on my GameCube's Gameboy Player).

    I don't need a GameBoy/DS, because the primary time in which I played my old white brick-sized Gameboy was while riding in the car. I'm the driver now, so that would be dangerous.

  • The Oracle games are basically Link's Awakening but better in every way.

  • I love the Oracle games. And I love this old commercial: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RyekgNmqXUo

    A big part of me has been hoping for an actual new 2D Zelda game, like Minish Cap but in HD, so it's a bit sad to see even a 2D style game still done in 3D. New one should still be neat though

    But Link's Awakening and the Oracle games are just cheap knocks on Link to the Past!

    And Link's Awakening is still way better than the Oracle games!

    Everyone enjoys different things. I don't hate the Oracle games GG and was just knocking you earlier ;P

    Uh, new Zelda game inbound. It's on the 3DS, it's got a top-down view and it lets Link turn into paper and stick to walls. Not entirely sure about that last one, but hey ho - NEW ZELDA WOO etc.

    EDIT: Update! It's a full-on sequel to A Link to the Past. Also, the Oracle games are headed to the eShop.

    Ugh, hate the looks of the complete bird's eye view style of gameplay. But I'm glad it's set in the same timeframe as LttP, though. It's nice to finally have a game from the older timelines rather than the Toon Link or Adult timeline that we've been having.

  • I dislike A Link to the Past somewhat for having only one main village or people- Kakariko- that said it has my favorite Link design conceptually, and the Oracle games are coming too?

    WHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOW

    WHOOOOOOOOOO OH OH OH WHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOW


    OHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHOHWOHOHWOHWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOHHHHHHHHHHHHH!

    To be fair, it was only the third Zelda game ever made; the overworld map is larger than the first game; and, though Zelda II had multiple towns (LOZ had none), there still were only like 6 sprites for all the townspeople in the entire Zelda II game.

    LTTP's map feels just the right size to me for that game. There doesn't need to be an extra town, because the town that is there serves its purpose.


    Although, I probably have a different opinion of it than you because I started playing Nintendo with the original NES, so LTTP was a step forward for me rather than a look back.

  • That makes sense, and I was also wrong that there was only one race...I forgot about the Zoras.

    I started playing Zelda with Ocarina of Time, and A Link to the Past was the next game I played any of...on GBA. Majora's Mask is my favorite Zelda game, yet it has only the main hub town...I believe? It has races and territories, though.

    I've always wanted a 3D Zelda with this Link, though.

  • I'm loving the look so far, though I will admit to being slightly disappointed in the fact that it's a top-down perspective.
