The Legend of Zelda
- The 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
- Do you guys remember the animated
series? Beej sure does!
- We discuss the difference in 2D and
3D Zelda games, which kind of feel like two separate series of
games, but with the same base mechanics.
- Zelda 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
- Have 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.)
- We 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 guys.
