The Legend Of Zelda: 10 Open-World Features It Needs To Have

WC writes: The Legend of Zelda series is not immensely popular and well-loved without reason: over the years, it has embodied what many of us love about Nintendo and about gaming in general, with characters, stories, and settings that warm the heart and challenge the mind. This year at E3, 28 years after its inception the series still inspired the conversation that many of its peers cannot manage, with the gaming world abuzz for weeks since Eiji Aonuma announced that Zelda Wii U would have an open-world concept.

So.. While ignoring that some of those things have already been in some Zelda games, you're basically asking Zelda to be a Skyrim clone, right?

Yeah, I say no to that.

EDIT: "Yes. I am asking for that."

Then don't play Zelda. Simple as that. You like Skyrim, not TLOZ, so keep playing the former.

Yes. I am asking for that. Link will yell "foos ro da!" and zelda will be all "dragonborn" and tingle will be there

Im not a zelda fan or skyrim fan, however, i was making references to back when The new zelda game was said to take inspiration from skyrim, and apparantly it has. Thats good to make a new type of game, one i will hopefully enjoy

They now have a Zelda mod for Skyrim out there on PC.
Go get your fix there and leave legitimate Zelda games to people who actually appreciate the things that make Zelda NOT a Skyrim clone.

"I'm not fan of Zelda or Skyrim, but I still want my Dragonborn DLC in my Zelda game". Nice contradiction there, made me laugh xD

I want MORE NPC's... it seems most Zelda NPC's have an essential purpose tied to a specific quest, side quest, tutorial etc. Often they'll talk about something as complex as an economy with 10 to 15 NPC's in a village. I'd like more NPC's to make things like a complex civilization seem more real. Like Link is really saving a world full of people as opposed to a village of people.

Metallox1542d ago

I Agree with this. In Skyward Sword whe had to save the twenty people living in Skyloft from the evil lord Ghirahim. Come on xD

We definitely need more NPCs and if you look at Zelda's U teaser you can see those farmers with their sheeps. I think there are going to be more NPCs this time around, but also they will be more dynamic.

...useless list. Especially the 10th one.

Zelda is about to be a dead series to me. After Aonuma gets through pandering to whiners, their will be nothing left of the series except its name.

It was a sad day for me when a major dev at Nintendo, the company I respect for its originality and self guiding game design, said that openly admits to making the game like others. When I saw that he said the game would be borrowing from Skyrim last year, it was heartbreaking.

As someone who's played every Zelda game, and the original Legend of Zelda being my favorite game EVER, I see this as a great opportunity. I felt the Wii Zelda Game's demand for motion controls was hurting to the series. Forcing the generations _____ (call it what you will, I don't want to use the word "gimmick" because I think motion controls are/were more than just a gimmick) was detaching for me as a player.

I know none of us real Zelda fans want to see the series become a copycat of anything other than itself, but until the game is released, we can't say it's bad. Zelda has always been its own incredible thing, but as a fan, I'll be the first to say that many of the conventions used in the game are very dated, and to bring Zelda to a more contemporary style of game while preserving what Zelda is could be the greatest thing for the series.

Dang man, that's awfully negative. Isn't it good to see Zelda go back to its roots? It's not pandering to whiners, it's giving love to long time friends of the series since game one.
