Damn.

Ocarina was the last Zelda game I played all the way through before BotW. Now I'm worried that trying to go back and play the others will feel so dated

zelda 1 and 2 felt outdated when ALttP released but ALttP will never feel outdated, it's a timeless masterpiece

OoT and MM feel horribly dated.

haven't played the gamecube games in a while but stuff from that gen isn't too bad to replay, they'd figured out how to do 3d games by then. skyward sword and the wind waker have that cartoony art style that should always look good. skyward sword needs the Wii controller + the shit the game came with to become a masterpiece tho, that game combined controls and gameplay into something special. too bad it was tarnished with the zelda style UI where dialogue boxes fill in glacially and there's too many of them making stuff like buying and upgrading a potion into a tedious lengthy experience no matter how many times you'd done it.

I finally finished this game.
took six months playing it with my six year old.

I'm blown away, there's just so much goodness and thoughtful design I can't believe how good it is.

I'm glad my son will have it as a memory of something we did together.

Did the same with my 5 year old a while ago and feel the same. He and I still talk about it from time to time.

yeah i loved twilight princess. played it on gamecube, so no idea how it felt on wii. it felt like OoT redux in a good way, like they were doing OoT with some elements from competitors like shadow of the colossus and okami and fixing the problems with OoT in the process (primitive graphics, poor controls, tedious non-dungeon navigation).

I had it on GC too. Would love a new Zelda with a similar aesthetic

This tech demo was gorgeous
