The Wind Waker is Possibly the Best Zelda Ever

The Wind Waker is possibly the best Zelda ever, and that being the case the improved The Wind Waker HD is possibly the finest Zelda game ever crafted. Of course, this is all semantics that hold no true value without the point being well defended. You see, calling anything the best ever in any situation, let alone within a franchise of video games, is always a very subjective matter. Not everyone is going to agree with the opinions of another, and Nathanial Rumphol-Janc;s views on this title do not represent Zelda Informer on the whole.

Nathanial prefaces it like this because discussions oriented topics like this often get misconstrued. This isn’t meant to be a definitive “this is the best” claim, because to many people out there other titles are their preferred game of choice. Still, it’s almost undeniable how fantastic this title truly is

It's in my top 5, but i don't think it's the best.

PopRocks3592829d ago

Agreed. I expect a bunch of disagrees for it, but Skyward Sword is honestly my favorite so far. 1:1 sword play was pretty sick, and I loved the story and art style. Majora's Mask is a close second to that.

theBAWSE2829d ago

Ocarina of time the first and best 3d Zelda in my eyes

DA_SHREDDER2828d ago

I hope they do an HD remake for Majora's next myserlf. Zelda was like the only good game that used the Wii mote, but i still prefer the story and gameplay in Majora's way better.

Benjaminkno2828d ago

Honestly, my expectations were too high with ocarina, I didn't even really play Majora, but I need to.

I really liked Link's Awakening, I think that's my favorite.

guitarded772829d ago

I agree... the original TLZ is still my favorite. It still holds up, and established so many of the genre and franchises conventions.

TheFirstClassic2829d ago (Edited 2829d ago )

My favorite is link to the past but the original is probably my second favorite, the number one nes game imo. I really think it doesn't get enough attention.

miyamoto2829d ago (Edited 2829d ago )

The timing too.

I just can't stand this kind stuff people put up with just to justify their favorite console or cover its problems.

Do I smell desperation or panic or denial?

No need for damage control.
Nintendo is not going anywhere.
As long as there are kiddie gamers there will be a market for Nintendo.

And by their own words they already negated the title of the article cos the article claims that the Wii U version will be better than Wind Waker.

There is no accounting for taste.

This is the first zelda to turn me off, I bought it and play for 2 hours or so. I hated the looks, feels, its cartoonish handling and inmature guide that left me wonder WTF happened?

animegamingnerd2829d ago

then he missed out on a great game

ahronith2828d ago

Well, your avatar says everything...

N0S3LFESTEEM2829d ago

Hated the visual style they chose on Wind wanker... Had it been more in touch with the style from the N64 then I would consider it.

yeahokchief2829d ago

legend of zelda: ocarina of time was the best

this one was pretty good. i dont need to play it again.

Knushwood Butt2829d ago

WW is probably my fave out of the one I have played.

I always found the cell shaded visuals added to the charm.

Having said that, I'm not interested in an HD port.

I don't think so, especially when you consider how tedious the navigation is.

PhantomTommy2829d ago

Everybody goes on and on about that but you unlock the warp melody fairly early in the game so I don't see the problem.

xflo3602828d ago (Edited 2828d ago )

Its amazing how people harp go on and on about that one thing isnt it?!, for me sailing was what made the game so good.
It made the game an actual adventure, finding new islands was always exciting. my personal fave!

Benjaminkno2828d ago

Yeah, the sailing gets extremely ridiculous.
I hated not being able to spend all my pointless rupees. Half the world is empty with little to get, except more rupees you can't use.

I liked the cartoonish medium they used. It's how we remember the originals.

greatcrusader442829d ago

Majora's Mask for me, but WW is second or third
