"I've played a lot of video games over the years, but nothing does it for more so than a good franchise. Be it Mario, Age of Empires, Portal, Mass Effect, Mega Man,or yes... The Legend of Zelda. The reason franchises are so endearing and have big fanbases is largely understandable. If you played one entry in the series and ended up loving it, chances are you are going to at least enjoy the rest of the games in that same franchise. It's sort of a "you know what you're getting" thing, and usually that is enough for fans. I may not know what the art style, story, or direction of Zelda U will be, but because it's a Zelda game I can already guarantee on some level I am going to enjoy the experience."
