Folks, the time is nearly upon us... a brand spankin' new Zelda adventure! If this game is anything less than amazing, I think most of us will be very surprised.
In honor of this occasion, I would like to jog a little bit down memory lane. Now, of course you don't have to answer ANY of these, and yes we have had some of these questions before (even recently), but what the hell, can you really have enough Zelda?
Here we go...
a)What are your favorite Zelda boss battles? (for fun, what do you think are the worst?)
b)Which supporting character is the coolest, and which the lamest?
c)Which opening sequence (start of the game) in which Zelda game did you enjoy the least and which the most?
d)What is the most annoying dungeon and which the best?
e)Which of Link's weapons/gadets is the worst and which the most kick-ass?
f)What's the best Easter Egg in the series? What's the lamest Zelda moment that you can think of?
g)What's the weirdest thing in the series?
h)What's the ONE new thing you wish to be able to do in upcoming Zelda games? (keep it clean)
i)Feel free to share any thoughts...
note: the CD-i Zelda games do not count...so don't even bother mentioning those! As for my answers:
a)OOT the boss against King Dodongo "Infernal Dinosaur" was awesome (even if not too hard I also loved the fight against Ganon in Wind Waker, I thought it was great and the only challenging fight in the entire game!
b)coolest = Malon, one who deserves to die a painful death = Tingle, typically lame = Zelda but sometimes she's cool (aka Sheik and Tetra), quite annoying = non-stop crying Goron in MM
c)I thought the opening sequence in Link's Awakening and Majora's Mask were great (although MM had a fairly long and challenging intro). I still don't understand what's up with the old man who gives you a sword in the original Zelda?
d)I really didn't like the water dungeon in OOT. I thought it was too repetitive. I actually thought all the dungeons in Wind Waker were superb (yeah, a bit on the easy side)!
e)I always thought the raft and ladder in the original Zelda were pretty sweet, although it's too bad they have such limited use! I wanted to see Link sail to far away lands...but no.
f)Having an ENTIRE new quest (the "second quest") in the original Legend of Zelda came as a complete suprise (and damn was it hard)! Also seeing those Chomp-Chomps in Link's Awakening was cool On the other hand, I remember getting to some town in Zelda II with just a tiny bit of life left...and then I spoke to some villager who turned into a bat and killed me (and I was out of lives)...that bastard!
g)I really don't understand the Link's Awakening story. Can someone explain it?
h)Link needs to get a slightly darker side... he's too goody-goody thus far!
