What can you play if you're a fan of The Legend of Zelda and don't actually own or like the Wii? Bright Hub gives you the skinny on a number of different titles that Zelda fans are bound to enjoy.
"Like Zelda but Hate the Wii " Why hate a piece of plastic?
BcuZ iTz knott HDeee!!
Why do people type like this?
i agree with you but not everyone wants to buy a wii just for one game and 3d dot heroes is very good.
3D dot heroes? So its a parody to the zelda franchise...that makes it a good replacement? No...
No, 3D Dot Heroes pays homage to Zelda and makes a ton of references to Nintendo games, its not a parody. And its a great game overall.
@sidar He didn't say it could replace Zelda, he just said some people may not want to put down money for a new console to play one game. Also, I don't know if you haven't actually played it or just don't know what "parody" means, but 3D DGH is a tribute/spiritual brother for this generation. It doesn't mock or tease Zelda. Am I the only one thinks this guy game in here with a mind to complain about or attack this article and its commenters?
Parody : " humorous or satirical mimicry " Im not insulting the game, not saying its bad. But its obviously build with the idea of "LOL WE ARE BEING OLDSCHOOL " while mimicking sh/tloads of the original zelda. But you cant justify Dot heroes as a Zelda alternative since Zelda has evolved FROM the original. The article suggest there are Zelda replacements for those who do not want to play zelda because of the Wii. Thats why i asked "...that makes it a good replacement?" "Am I the only one thinks this guy game in here with a mind to complain about or attack this article and its commenters?" If thats attacking i suggest you stay away from the internet. Its obvious that most N4G readers are incompetent when it comes to comprehensive reading. But this really starts to get annoying.
@sidar: Just wanted to point out that nowhere in the article is the word "replacement" used. These are just alternatives that some gamers who like Zelda may also enjoy.
neither did i say he used the word "replacement", instead he suggests it. Why else?
the only two games that should have even been on that list were Darksiders and 3D dot game heroes.
Majin and the Forsaken Kingdom is good too.
zelda is going to make you love the Wii
Zelda games bring a different experience. Not playing them is just the same as missing out. "God of War Series" Is he even trying? "the basic gameplay elements that Legend of Zelda fans enjoy are there" Thats like saying FPS are good replacement for platformers since you can JUMP.
I've heard plenty of people mention Zelda when they play God of War and vice versa. It's not that the games are similar, but they do offer core elements that fans of the genre can enjoy. It's not as if I'm making a comparison between Zelda and GTA, both of which are action-adventure games. The keyword is "fantasy".
Comparing GoW to Zelda... That's like comparing Call of Duty and Grand Theft Auto. Zelda rocks btw... Every generation Zelda is one of two reasons why I will always buy the Nintendo console.
No, comparing God of War (fantasy action-adventure) to Zelda (fantasy action-adventure) is like comparing Call of Duty (FPS) to Bad Company 2(FPS). GTA is an action-adventure series. However, I will agree with you that Zelda games are system sellers for me as well.
I think he was speaking more to God of War being a beat 'em up and Zelda being an action-adventure game.
