How The Wind Waker Has Influenced Zelda For 20 Years

Every 3D Zelda game impacts the rest of the franchise, but not every game was as up-front about it as Breath of the Wild was.

I enjoyed it, I really did, but it was the most tedious, frustrating nerve wrecking game in the series…. Next to two. ( I mean saved tingles life, so you’d think he’d be in debt to you) oh no, not only do you have to pay for him to interpret scrolls to reveal locations of the pieces of Triforces, he also has the testicular fortitude to double the price for each interpretation… Wtf? It’s a great story, but the traditional Zelda concept is super limited in that game

I'd put Street Fighter 2 over 3. 2 and all its different versions dominated the arcade scene back in the day in a way that 3 never did.

Agreed, Same with Metal Gear Solid imo. Came for Bioshock and was not disappointed. Would easily put Burger Time or Space Taxi over tempest. Also, OG Sim City and Oregon Trail. Mario 64 as well. Just too many!

Never played it I gotta get on this one

Double_O_Revan26d ago

Me too. I didn't have a GC until way later and never played it. I've been waiting on Nintendo to release the HD edition on the Switch for forever, but they just won't!

I never bought a Gamecube, I've always had an urge to play this game, maybe it'll get a remaster in the future.

I played it on WiiU for the first time and it remains my fave Zelda game to date. So much character and a real sense of exploration without the open world bloat.

Ms Pacman?
SSF2 Turbo over 3 simply by the 10000000000's ports of the game we're still having
Castlevania SOTN?
Zelda Link to the Past over Wind Waker
Super Mario Bros 3?
Chrono Trigger?
Resident evil4?
COD MW2 (the original)?
Uncharted 2
Metal Gear Solid?

Here's my reasoning for all of them versus the list proposed in the article.
They are still quite enjoyable from start to finish on their original platform, unlike some Wind Waker or Okami that are fun when you play the remastered version (unless you call: forced to watch a 20-minute cutscene or have to blow for wind chance constantly fun).
Some of them are the pinnacle of what the console could do (MGS, Chrono, MGS)
Lots of them are still considered the go-to-go game for their genre.

Said it before but Heart of Darkness is truly a timeless gem.
