Championship Round- Best Zelda Ever: Ocarina vs Skyward vs Wind Waker [TNE]

Finally, YOU will help decide which game is the best Zelda of All Time at The Nintendo Enthusiast. After three previous rounds, the competition has been whittled down to the remaining three: Ocarina of Time, Skyward Sword, and.... Wind Waker?

Don’t ask me how it happened but somehow Wind Waker has snuck into the final round! I’m not kidding. We received 262 votes and Skyward Sword and Wind Waker are tied in a dead heat. I honestly didn’t see Wind Waker pulling off a win against Twilight Princess and then a tie with Skyward Sword. Is it really so beloved?

Does it really matter to anyone what others think the best Zelda game is?

Lord_Sloth1666d ago

Nope, because my favorites are Majora's Mask and A Link to the Past. I don't care what any1 else says.

Some like the original the most, others OoT, some SS, and others WW. We've all got our own opinions.

My favorite is Majora's Mask too! I loved the story, the characters, the creepy atmosphere. I loved being able to do a side-quest for one character over the three days, then reversing time and doing different side-quests for different characters over three days again.

I might get disagrees for this, but I thought OoT was kinda...bland by comparison. It was still a great game, but it didn't seem to have the charm and character-driven plot that Majora's Mask had.

MM was win, like OOT + 1 but without the initial charm. I would say MM is a better game overall but OOT deserves to be the fav.
I didn't like WW and havn't played the Wii ones yet (that box still lives for smash bros and mario kart to me, no time to grab it for engrossing single player yet)

Not really.

I just like talking about Zelda.

juegosmajicos1665d ago

Sure, I think it does. We all might be unrelenting on our opinions of the different Zelda games, but when we're forced to choose between two Zelda games we like, we're likely to start thinking deeply about why we would choose one over the other, which always leads to a gratifying better understanding of our hobby.

For example, I was forced to choose between Ocarina of Time and Skyward Sword in this final round, and it wasn't an easy choice. Ultimately, I decided on Skyward Sword because, even though Ocarina of Time was more than a masterful title when it came out, the scope of its design is less impactful and meaningful to me now than Skyward Sword's. From this point on, I want Nintendo NOT to try and do what Ocarina of Time did anymore, but to evolve from and improve the template they set down with Skyward Sword.

I think the fact that these tournaments can force us to think at a deeper level of the games we like, as well as reveal to us what likes we share with other gamers, more than validates their existence.

I should quote what you just said in the next tourney. Well said.

Out of the two, The Windwaker.

Of all time? Tied between Windwaker/Majoras Mask and A Link to the Past.

Neko_Mega1666d ago

Zelda 2 and Zelda Ocarina Of Time.

Menashe1666d ago

I happened to have liked Twilight Princess better than Wind Waker although Wind Waker had an awesome style that felt like I was playing a cartoon. I haven't finished Skyward Sword to say whether I like it better than Ocarina of Time or not but I'll finish soon and then I'll vote.

I liked Majora's Mask and I'm a big fan of its creepiness and darkness, but overall I though Ocarina of Time was a better game.

The original zelda is still the best to me. I remember seeing that gold cart when i was a kid. It made me feel like i was about to play something special (and it was). No other zelda game has given me that feeling.
