The Legend of Zelda
Legend of Zelda is one of Nintendo’s flagship series, but
surprisingly, it’s one of the few that actually does a lot better
in the West than it does in Japan. Many may not realize the series
was created by Miyamoto, the same genius who created Mario, though
Aonuma has been in charge of the series since his major success
with Ocarina of Time in 1998.
- Generally, we’ve played them all. Beej has only
missed 3 of them, and they’re on purpose. Void has just completed a
lite playthrough of the whole series, in which he ranked them all
for current playability, rather than nostalgia.
you guys remember the animated series? Beej sure does!
discuss the difference in 2D and 3D Zelda games, which kind of feel
like two separate series of games, but with the same base
games! We don’t go in-depth for every one (because some just aren’t
worth the time, honestly), but we do discuss our favorites, our
memories, and just why some of them stand up for 20+ years, while
others can’t even stay a few years.
you folks ever completed a Zelda game 100%? WE HAVE! The only one
Void is sure he has ever 100%’d was Majora’s Mask, while the only
game Beej has fully completed is Ocarina of Time.
- Void’s rankings will be on his blog soon
enough, but we discuss his top 5. (Hint, they’re probably not what
you’re thinking they are.)
talk about the things we love and the things we loathe about Zelda
games. For instance, we are super tired of the long, tedius intro
villages in 3D Zelda games. Just stop, Nintendo. Just stop.
However, we truly love the puzzles and non-linear worlds that we
can explore. We are super excited for Breath of the Wild because
from the released footage so far, it seems like they’ve read our
minds and are making the perfect Zelda game for the Geek to Geek
