One of my top favorite series to play I felt needed to get some thread loving what with Spirit Tracks out and the small trickles of info on the next LOZ of Wii.

Use this to talk about the series in general...it's highs and lows along with any other topics (Like is this series been completely overatted and blown out of proportion over the years or is it justified?)

Also for those who havint really been visiting the wii thread and missed out on the small bits of info on the next Wii release:

So how's Spirit Tracks so far? I haven't opened up my copy yet since I still need to finish my other DS games that I'm working on

    Unfortunately i missed out on most of the series. All I've beaten were OoT and MM. I did have Oracle of Seasons for the GBC but I sold it before I could beat it.

    ^ If you have a gba, Fatty DS, or Lite I'd reccomend finding a copy of the Minish Cap along with A Link to the Past.

    I apparently played Minish Cap when it came out but I don't remember any of it so I've been working through it in my spare time.

    And over winter break I'm going to have a lot of time with nothing to do, so I'm replaying OOT and MM. Without a doubt my 2 favorite games of all time, and it's been a while since I've played them.

    I never did care much for LttP...yes I liked it but it's far from my fave Zelda. Link's Awakening is still my all time fave.

    just bought for virtual console Majora's Mask.

    LTTP is my all time favorite.... Just the concept of it and the going back and forth from light to dark world.... Along with the music.

    I remember playing it and after getting the 3 pearls and defeating the boss, i was like damn, is the game over? Then BAM! Enter the Dark World with 7 new dungeons and the epic ass song that comes along with it.

    OG Zelda and Link to the Past are the best games in the series by far.

    Agreed. Both games had a large number of dungeons--something that is missing from recent Zelda games. OG Zelda has the Second Quest, which I wish more Zelda games had. The Second Quest is the best extra feature in any game, period.

    OoT, ALttP and Link's Awakening=the best Zelda's. I need to eventually get both DS Zelda games, I own every other major release except for those and Minish Cap/GBC games.

    i enjoyed the ocarina of time best (horse was off da hinges) even though i played link to the past years before. i think they got it perfect on that 64 version. havent played twilight princess so i cant speak on that 1. minish cap was good 2. gamecube 1 (wind waker) was ehhh

    Personally LTTP can't be beaten, especially the 4 swords version on GBA. Link's Awakening was too good as well.
    And I've said it before, I'll said it again: I think OOT and Majora's mask were pure unadulterated pieces of shit. OOT was what turned me off console zelda games and as a result I haven't touched Windwaker and Twilight Princess.

    Link's Awakening for the GB was awesome. The only Zelda game that I have played over 10 times. I played LTTP and OOT but never finished MM, though I did enjoy what I did play.

    I've played and beaten most of them except for oracle games, and Twilight princess (Had to send my Wii for repairs mid way through and lost everything..)

    In my opinion, the very BEST Zelda game is Majora's Mask. Playing through that game as a kid, sometimes I'd get shivers at certain points of the game like on the final 12 hours when that music starts playing, indicating the end of the world.

    Then you had that creepy Ikana Valley business with all those Garo jerks ambusing you out of nowhere, not to mention the music there as well.

    The Anju/Kafei Quest was epic in every sense of the word. It's one of the few side quests in a Zelda game that actually made you feel some form of emotion.

    Everything about that game is perfect. It had the darkest story line of any Zelda game, and all the atmosphere was beautiful. Nothing better than going into first person and looking up to see this giant moon with an insane looking face wanting to kill your ass along with the whole world.

    I need to play it again..

    My favorite has always been Link to the Past. I've finished that game more times then I care to count but it never gets old to me. Though Turtle Rock is still the worst dungeon ever.

    The runners up for my favorites go to Twilight Princess (Ganon was just too badass in this), OoT, and the original Zelda. I've never played either of the Oracle games but given how popular they seem to be here maybe I'll try and track one of them down.

    Never played the Oracle games, but most of the portable Zelda games have been very good. Phantom Hourglass was ok, a nice little attempt to bring Zelda to the DS but not great, liked it more then Zelda 2. I still have high hopes for Spirit Tracks however.

    I'm hoping the next Wii Zelda is bigger change structure then Twilight Princess, other then Majora's Mask, to many of the Zelda games have just copied off the design of OoT (or actually closer to ALttP). Also, please get make boss battles harder then just three hits and they are done.

    I have played all the console Zelda games, and have enjoyed them all. I have not really payed attention to Nintendo since about 2008 because they are so far back in terms of gaming technology but if they make a new Zelda, I might be interested.

    What annoyed me about OoT, and the reason why I don't think it's the best of all time like most people rate it to be, is because the fucking Hyrule Field was boring and plain as fuck.
  • ValarisValaris keeping watch over SRK Joined: Posts: 13,078
    Anyone playing Spirit Tracks? I feel like it's a decent game but could be so much better if you didn't have to deal with the tedious traveling bs and the Pan Flute Hero aspects of it.

    While it's one of my favorites I will agree to this however. As far as areas go in OoT it's all about that forest temple.

    I'm playing Spirit Tracks right now and I almost feel the same way. I like that you don't have to redo previous floors in the spirit tower, and the puzzles in general are much better. Although you get that deja vu feeling with Spirit Tracks, the game is beginning to pick up. It seems like there are a lot of secrets in the game, too. No heart pieces is a good thing.

    Just started OOT on Wii's VC... hopefully it'll be fine with a gamecube controller. Nostalgia is in full effect.

    Playing through Phantom Hourglass right now. I only got to the 2nd Temple my first time I played it (ran into some financial woes so had to sell my DS and games) but I started the game this morning and I'm back at the Second Temple.

    I still like the game as much as I first played it so I'm looking forward to finishing it before I buy Spirit Tracks.

    This in itself is what's making me tier it below Phantom Hourglass. I could overlook rerunning the Ocean Temple over and over. At least the overworld control didn't suck balls. The mic gimmick is just as dumb, if not moreso than it was in PH. I seriously would like to know who's bright idea it was to make all overland control based on a rigid, clunky, slow, unmaneuverable type of vehicle. Fucking stupid.

    The dungeons have been the only thing to keep me fueled into continuing. Just opened up the ocean area, which I have a feeling I will cringe over.

    I picked up OoT off eBay and it arrived today. All fully boxed with instructions. It's not exactly the best and its over hyped but it's nice to have the cartridge there since I did spend a good amount of time playing it.

    I think I may play through Minish Cap or another older handheld game soon to get me back in the mood before I buy Spirit Tracks. The only handheld itteration of the games I have played IIRC is the Phantom Hourglass.

    Don't worry about the ocean area, it's not that bad. Now you have pirates though which are fun to shoot.

    I just had to play the song in the fire realm and wanted to throw my DS out the window. So fucking frustrating. I honestly don't understand how it works. The times I had it best it told me I sucked and then the one time I fucked it all up by sneezing into the mic so playing like 6 notes in a second, it had it right. What the fuck?

    Majoras Mask is my favorite (Fuck you Valaris!) and I really really like Adventures of Link. It's a hard action game on the NES. I love that.

    Also OOT is over rated as hell. It's good but it's a serious rehash but in the 3rd dimension.

    I loved OoT and TP. Soundtrack to both are great. I especially enjoyed the song in TP: Desperate Hour[/url]. Good stuff. I came across this girl who can play it just as good: You guys should check out her other stuff [url . Phantom Hourglass is good as well. Except for the puzzle inside the ghost ship. That was a bit of a problem. I mean, I got it, but somehow it was some other numbers.
