Oh what? You apologize to her but never me. Hmpf.



I'll get over it.

I think PH is good. It brought alot of game to the DS. The DS has a lot of crappy games, PH is a surprisingly big game for a handheld device, they did a good job, and really, not only are technological advances a good thing (and are bound to happen in any civilization) there really isn't any technological advances in PH. I don't know what the boat runs on (probably magic) but it still isn't some technologically advanced thing. There is really nothing else in it that is questionably a technological advancement, as magic does not count, cuz it's fictional.
I'm interested in playing Spirit tracks, I'm not a big on trains, but it still looks pretty good. Story should be interesting atleast.

While I don't mind Link riding trains or sailing boats, or commanding space craft for all I care, I do mind the direction Nintendo is pushing the series in.

What the series really needs is to flow with the time. We don't need Zelda to be saved anymore, we don't need to wade through tons of lines of text. Nintendo needs to make the series more appealing to the current generation of gamers.

This might sound strange, but in a way I feel that Fallout 3 was the sequel for OoT we'd been waiting for for 10 years. An immersive story, up to date graphics, a huge landmass to discover... I hadn't been so much into a game since OoT. Now I don't mean to say that Zelda should be about a post-apocolyptic world (although, in a way, that's what Wind Waker was), but I just wish that Nintendo would, for once, open their eyes and make a genuine effort for their core audience for a change.

They can do it. Mario Galaxy was fantastic, and so was SSBB. Now it's Zelda's turn.

Eh.

Considering it's a game set in a -fantasy- world, I guess it shouldn't matter.

I mean, i'm a zelda fan, and even I scoffed at the idea of link riding a train in spirit tracks. It might suck, it might not.

I'll probably end up buying it anyway.

Those 'cartoonish' games were unbound and free to do what they would, unlike games bound by relative realism, and became to me the most visually pleasing of any game, far surpassing any 'realistic' graphics.
I never understood why people disliked the "cartoony" cel-shaded graphics of the windwaker. I thought they were quite original and fluid-looking. TP's graphics look nice, but then again TP has a "darker" feel and WW has a lighter more playful feel, due to the different storylines.

Speakin of original, when is the last time Nintendo has put out a good original game like Pikmen? Maybe it's just me, but I can't recall.

I don't think Nintendo really does the "dark" category, as sad as it is. I wish we could get another MM like game, except... without the time limit.

I was actually talking to one of my friends about that, the dark part I mean. Nintendo is the gaming company that focuses I think on the more jolly sort of side, not a bunch of blood and viloence. Though I'm sure they have made a couple of games, but not compared to other companies, like the people who brought us GTA. Though now you've made me think what would happen if they made a real bloody guts and gore zelda game for more of the older public? A game that would make Link look like this

I read all this with great interest I must say, personnally I agree with both main sides of this argument if you we put it in an arguing context. Yes Zelda is becoming more advanced and futuristic and I think that it shoud stay where it is back in the medievil ages or older times that it was originally based in but at the same time I think that it hasent hurt too add some modern touches and twists and flares to the new games too keep them interesting. I can't remember where the cartoon effect of WW came in but at first myself I doubted it would be good but it turned out to but one of my favorite games in the Zelda series.

P.S Interesting topic Zeldork give yourself a pat on the back!!

Let's talk about terms for a sec. What do you mean by "modern" versus "medieval?" What is "dark?" Why is it preferable to "cartoony," and are there times when it might not be? If you're going to try to have an intelligent discussion about this shit, let's make sure you know what you're saying.

Who are we talkin to? Cuz I'm pretty sure most of us (at least on this page) didn't mention dark being preferable to cartoony. Just sayin. Could be on another page, I just read this one.

Haven't you guys noticed how advanced TP was? I mean, for example, the Gorons were able to make an advanced mining physicality with cranes and stuff in a freaking volcano. They may be able to last in extremely hot conditions, but their mining physicality was still advanced.

I agree with the gorons, but the game itself still was overall medieval like, which is why I liked it. lol

Judging by the latest trailer I'd say it's anything but modern, lol.

One thing that I forgot to remember (or remembered to forget) was that the Link I grew up with hasn't changed at all. Wind Waker and PH (although forced too much repitition) were my favorite games of the current milleneum while oot will remain my true fav forever. A 1997 baby, I became wondered by the beautiful GAME OVER screens I was too young to read. OOt Link is my little brother. BUT PH, WW, AND ST AREN'T MY ZELDA. The ds came before my wii, and I felt a wonder not matched until I swung my first wii remote. I had been detatched from all video games between Smash bros. melee and PH. I felt that I could save the Fair Princess Zel- I mean Tetra- Again in a new Hyrule Field, The Ocean Blue. But I'd be happier than ever if there was a recreation of the N64 Zelda formulas on ds. They did it for Mario^$. ITS UNFAIR!!!!!!!!

I think it's best to take each Zelda game as it's own unique and wonderful experience. If you want a new Zelda game to perfectly recapture those emotions you felt when playing Ocarina of Time, then you'll always be disappointed!

The instrument is not a train whistle, but a pan pipe.

And I see how one could see the series becoming more modern, which could cause it to lose its flair. I just Hope Nintendo does not go much further than trains.
