8 Scary Settings That Would Be Cool In Zelda

ZD writes: Scary settings are not at all new to Zelda, and there tends to be a dungeon or area with a spooky theme in the majority of Zelda games these days. But, at least from what I can see, most scary locations in the series tend to gravitate toward the same idea: Underground structures or graveyards that are infested with the undead. Usually these areas are based on pretty basic horror tropes, which is fine, but Zelda tends to be at its best when it tries out new ideas from game to game, so I think it’s about time we saw a little more variety with its scary moments. Not all of these setting ideas are going to be brand-new to Zelda; some of these are going to be ones we’ve seen before, so this article isn’t exactly about settings that we need to see, but settings we need to see more of. I think that some of the concepts we’ve seen before could use a major expansion since their previous appearances were minor, but there are definitely some fresher ideas in here too.

While this is another list article, it’s going to be less about the strict order and more about the ideas themselves, so the order is less important here than on my Top 16 Most Annoying Zelda Characters or Top 16 Most Disturbing Zelda Characters articles. These are not all of the possibilities for new scary settings — I’m sure there are many others — these are simply eight ones I would like to see. Now let’s get started (and yes, I know that first image is of Luigi’s Mansion). (3DS, The Legend of Zelda, Wii, Wii U)

Bought a wii at launch to play the ported zelda game, couldn't finish it because it was so trash. Zelda = over hyped.

Thankfully the wii is used more now so wasn't a complete waste of time.

I don`t know if you`re worth the time to respond to so I guess benefit of the doubt is in order here.
Zelda is one of (if not the biggest) ground pillars to why you play games.

I'm fine with people not liking a certain game. To each his own.

But trash? Zelda games are well crafted and " credit where credit is due" is most certainly in order.

Besides you couldn't finish " it " ? Which game?

It was twilight princess.

I was so excited to play it with motion, that I got into a frenzy and when I finally got the wii and game - I just didn't like it, it felt.... Wrong.

I was going to get the cell shaded zelda game, but after TP I just didn't want to play!

I do realise that obviously the game series must be fantastic to have lasted so long, but to me, I just didn't like it all.

You are basing your opinion on ONE game that tacked on motion controls for a big part. It's really not a reason to call Zelda trash while all the other games play differently.

Skyward Sword, the cell shaded one, which does motion controls far better plays absolutely different.

I absolutely recommend Windwaker ( another cell shaded one). Twilight princess is not my favorite either.

You realise that it was originally a Gamecube game and it was ported right?
