I wasn't a Zelda nut until I sunk 70 hours into Twilight Princess. I don't know what it is about the series...but it has something special that isn't easily described.

Just look at E3 reactions this year for Galaxy 2 and Other M, and compare that to the absolute roar that TP got when it debuted.

One factor is the rarity of LoZ. We usually have to wait a long time for the games -- there have only been 7 console Zeldas in 23 years.

[Heck, there have been 5 Halos in 8 years, for the sake of comparison. And we'll get Reach next year.]

By the time a new LoZ is announced, people are dying to play the series again.

That Zelda is such a tease.
