Zelda A Link to the Past however is still better than every Zelda game after Link's Awakening...

Are you saying LTTP is #2?

My top 3 are Link to the Past, Wind Waker, then Link’s Awakening (although every handheld Zelda is great - Minish Cap, Oracles).

Terry_B803d ago

For me, LTTP stays on #1, but together with Link's Awakening..followed by the oracles games and yes, like you I like the other handheld games as well, guess I just prefer the classic top down gameplay in Zelda in general..but ALTTP also just had its amazing story and atmosphere that blasts way the whole rest of the series for me.

A link to the past is the apex of Zelda for me. If they could make a 3D remake of that I would buy it in a heartbeat

Imagine it would have Guilty Gear like 2d graphics

NecrumOddBoy802d ago

I want it in the Octopath HD2D engine!

Pyrofire95803d ago

Do you mean "after THAT, Link's Awakening" or saying LA is best?

ArmorOfGod803d ago

Trolls gonna troll. They got people to click so good on em, I guess.

GhostScholar803d ago

The title to this article is ridiculous, but kudos for being so committed to trolling.

Even with the motion controls?

I think not.

I will say that Zelda franchise is so good that I can understand everyone having their favorites.

Metabeard803d ago

If I could play Skyward with classic controls I think it would be my favorite in the series. Right now My favorite 2d is LTTP but my favorite 3D is Twilight Princess. I enjoy BOTW but its a bit more survival craft than I want my Zelda to go.

Everything in Tears of the Kingdom is Temporary, and it’s Annoying

Wow, I had no idea creations start disappearing like that. I haven't played yet and the building of machines seemed pretty awesome.. but if they get destroyed after a short period of time, what's the point? I would want to keep my favorite creations across the entirety of my adventure. :\

I sure hope they rework this on the next console after Switch. I'm actually surprised this didn't lower some of the 10/10 scores.

the rabid nintendo fans would probably have sent death threats if it got lowered

Always thinking of rabid fanbases means that you’re rabid too.

You can save your creations to have them automatically rebuilt, as long as you have the resources for it

one of the most boring games of the year

I mean, I've always hated weapon deterioration and that's normal for the game, so those creations have a limited lifespan built in. As far as creations in the world, I think it's a bit much to expect those to last. That's a lot for the game to remember and track let alone with how many things can and are created.

closed_account70d ago (Edited 70d ago )

Too much to expect for a Switch, sure. But it would be nice to retain at least 10 creations longterm if they ever remaster this for the next console. Like a gta garage almost. Clear out the ones you don't want anymore. I'd like an airship that I can continuously fly around the world. Be able to take several out at once. (I can imagine leaving them in strategic spots, set like a cross-country rally. People streaming their fastest times.)

I really think I'll just wait for a next gen remaster. I'm still playing Breath of the Wild and enjoying it. I've read that it can be hard to go back to after Tears bc of the re-used world, so I'd like to continue getting the most out of Breath of the Wild.

As for the quickly degrading weapons, I always hated that too. Wish they lasted longer, or you could cast a spell to retain at least 3 or so of your favorites. it is what it is though, and I'm not going to stop playing just bc of that. I really like the atmosphere of the game.

**Edit - For reference, you can retain many, many creations on Lego Worlds even on a Switch, albeit not vehicles. Also the rest of the game isn't nearly as complex as the Zelda games, the draw distance is horrendous and over all a buggy mess. Still, I'm confident that a next gen Tears of the Kingdom remaster could handle a garage worth of creations.

Not to mention it wouldn’t necessarily be a good thing. A lot of crafts are used for moments in gameplay, why should they be littering the world and disrupting the scenery? Sometimes the devs place vehicles or parts as a hint or gameplay option, but if those vehicles are coexisting along random vehicles that would be impossible to distinguish. The system the devs chose (build whatever with free local resources or craft anything with materials) makes the most sense and gives the least cluttered experience.
