"I love games that can forego the typical ‘adult’ conventions, and supply something that is, above all, good. Wind Waker is one of these. Games like this that are suitable for any age, while providing depth in narrative and gameplay that can be further appreciated by a big old grown-up will always be my favourite. Wind Waker’s beautiful art, interesting world and wonderful, childlike sense of adventure and awe is a testament to the potential of charming game design."
