Lucas DeWoody Writes:
Back in 2001, one of the biggest controversies in gaming took place. Nintendo decided to mix things up and unleash a doe-eyed Link that looked almost like a 1940's era Disney film (that's a compliment, not a zing) on the unsuspecting attendees of the final Space World conference. We all remember how the fanbase was split. Many thought the visual style was a return to the classic imaginings of the old time installments, while others thought Miyamoto had taken one too many trips to his "garden." Time has since passed, Wind Waker went on to become a classic, dissenters got their own Zelda in the form of Twilight Princess, and everything was good.
