Why Zelda Still Rules the Action RPG

"1UP, we confess, has not been the kindest friend to the Legend of Zelda series of late. In fact, one might even assume that we have some sort of dark agenda against the games. That we're out to perform a cruel hit job. To poison the shape of public discourse about Nintendo's work and undermine the very foundations of the franchise by eroding the world's affection for and confidence in Zelda!"

The story is too old to be commented.

I will forever be a Zelda fan!

zelda isnt a rpg im sorry.

KwietStorm1986d ago

I disagree!

Zelda is not an RPG by today's "standards" when you look at the rest of the genre, but it was an RPG before any of these other games existed. Well it was at least an adventure game.. You know what nevermind.

It's not the best action adventure either, I'd give that to Darksiders. The only truly great Zelda's were Ocarina and A Link to the Past, the rest were massively overrated.

Your face is massively overrated!

Zelda is far more of an RPG than any Final Fantasy game (which still are RPG's).

Perfect example of someone who has no idea of what they are talking about.

With all the trolling and fanboy comments on this site, yours still has to be one of the most ridiculous things I've read this year.

whoa that does not even make sense. Step away from the needle son. Just kidding about the needle thing but seriously how dumb is this statement?

madjedi1986d ago

I guess it is true if you only are considering nintendo systems, but skyrim, fallout, borderlands would be better action rpgs and demons/dark souls is the best action rpgs to me.

Zelda 2: The Adventure of Link is the only RPG of the series. All of the other games are Action/Adventure.
