Why many people (including myself) don't like Zelda

ScrewAttack: I know a lot of people are probably going to disagree with me (some may even threaten or abuse) but Zelda games are no longer relevant in today’s’ world of gaming.

Now before everyone starts going “I bet you only like to play COD online and prolly hate all Nintendo games” (I don’t play COD and I don’t hate all Nintendo games) here me out for I have reasons, some of which I like to think are pretty good. (3DS, Nintendo DS, The Legend of Zelda, Wii, Wii U)

It sounds like the writer of this blog wants Zelda to be a different series than it is..that's fine for his opinion but I kinda like my Zelda games to be ya know-like Zelda games!

Exactly the only problem i have is some zelda games feel more like zelda games then others(imo) I won't say which ones but they changed the core gameplay so much the plot seemed the only part of the game that was zelda like.

The point of zelda games imo is exploration(the original game was inspired by miyamoto exploring caves as a child) While it's true every zelda game has exploration some games have aspects that make exploration less enjoyable(like being anchored to your travel method)

Zelda will stay zelda!
just like FF, MGS, god of war will still have the same core basics of their franchises.

you don't like Zelda? then go play another game.

at least Zelda is one of the few old franchises that to this day Still sticking to their roots and their true fans. unlike Final Fantasy, Resident Evil and so on.

The header is ridiculous. If you're going to convey an opinion, speak only for yourself because that's the only person you can speak for when it boils right down to it.

Like most articles on N4G, it's for the hits.
Too bad these sorts of articles can't be unapproved until fixed.

Ridiculous article with no merit whatsoever!

"Let’s have a Zelda game where it opens with a 40 year old Link in a bar drinking his sorrows away after he just stabbed a guy in the throat. As there has been peace for so long he has now become a forgotten hero. Zelda and his son has left him long ago and he is now working as a mercenary for higher."

No. Just no.

skyward sword: metacritic score of 93 from 81 reviewers, 30 perfect scores, which is more perfect scores than uncharted 2. Many people hate zelda? I think the gaming world would like a word with you?

"zelda games are no longer relevant in today's gaming" congrats, it only took 25 years for a franchise to lose some steam. much hated franchise indeed. ridiculous.

My honest opinion *puts shield up* there is no point to playing a Zelda game because the story feels empty and campy. Also the gameplay to me is overly simplistic and bland.

I know people love the nostalgia it brings and those Zelda soundtracks are amazing , but Zelda games have always been Meh to me.

You are free to have your opinion, but people don't just love Zelda because of nostalgia. I didn't play my first Zelda game until 2009. It's now in my top 3 franchises. Gameplay is opinion but I think it is head and shoulders above almost every other game I've played. If anything I'm mad it took me 18 years to jump into the series.

its not like i dont like Zelda but it has never appealed to me, this guy needs to just stop playing them if it doesnt appeal to him. Zelda is a great series but its just not for everyone. worse in this time were most people are spoiled brats that only like graphics over gameplay wich Zelda games are.

Well said...much better put than the writer of this article,differing opinions are what make this world great-I respect that the series isn't for everybody what game is? But to think Nintendo should change an entire series to keep a handful of non Zelda gamers happy is just ludicrous.
Kratoscar2008  +   1265d ago
Is like RE were now are only action focused instead HS just because most people prefer action over survival. Is a shame that nintendo has to take this same route.

I love zelda titles but i feel like the main formula needs to evolve.. I know wii had the motion sword moves but it was still about finding bottles, sling shot, bow, etc.. Most of the weapons stay the same.. They had something going w skyward sword by adding materials to upgrade weapons n running so i hope they add on that next time.. The dungeon puzzles are the best puzzles in dungeon crawling.. No1 can make puzzles like Miyamotto..

LOL wall of text.

I stopped reading about 1/4 way down because i couldn't take it haha

Some of the quotes posted in the comments here were enough to make me click the link for some possible lulz but my eyes just couldnt handle it. How did this get approved LOL? and how did it hit the front page? Im confused.
