Five Things Zelda Wii U Should Borrow From The Wind Waker

GenGAME writes: Today marks the 10th anniversary of The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker’s release on Nintendo GameCube in the U.S.

The Wind Waker is one of those rare games that manages to carve out its own distinct path, and yet does so brilliantly. While many were initially put off by its art style, over time it's come to grow on people, and unlike many of the "grittier" games of its day it's actually aged as gracefully as fine wine.

Wind waker was the worst legend of zelda game ever!! Made link look like a 7 year old girl.

He didn't exactly look like a man in the original Zelda game itself. Who cares if he's a boy or man as long as the game is fun.

What Orian said.

Also, BusyToad, you realize that link is only 10 years old (as a child) and 17 (as an adult) in OoT, right? He's still a kid there.

The game blew,and the cel shading graphics do not belong in zelda games period. i grew on link back in the 80's,not only is wind waker a piss poor game but it seems nintendo made it for kiddies.

Another reason i refuse to buy a nintendo console,they make their exlusive's all kiddie lookin,its sad lol. Last good nintendo console was N64 nuff said.

But you just said cel shading doesn't belong in a zelda game( depicting the child friendly look)?
I'm just confused about your confusion. Make up your mind.

"nuff said"
Ah dang it. I was hoping for more nonsense.

Ah no Wind Waker was one of the best Zelda games ever made. It was amazing to be on the open ocean. It's pirate theme was fresh and new. The choice to go with cel shading was perfect. Young link always looks like a little girl.

I actually did not enjoy twilight and skyward that much.

@busytoad
The game was excellent and all the other Zelda games before twilight have been kiddi. Actually the worst Zelda game made was Zelda 2 Adventures of Link. The last boss was dark link which a shadow of you.

You're saying it's worse than the CD-i games? And no one else has brought that up?

while playing ni no kuni, i couldn't help but wonder what Zelda might be in Ghibli's hands. quite fantastic i imagine

Wind Waker was almost as revolutionary for the series as the transition was from 2D to 3D... or the transition from OoT to Majora's Mask... Imagine how boring it would get if games never tried anything new.
