        Finishing blow, bomb arrows, and the ability to actually swim(also done in MM, but differently)are definitely groundbreaking for the series. Not to mention snowboarding, a sight for your bow, the ball and chain, and an actually exciting ganon fight, which WW failed spectacularly

      All of the bosses blow chunks and the dungeons are just okay at best. The bosses are mostly inexcusable, the only reason it's a thing is because they designed the game with multiple skews where the best version was played with a proper controller.
      >b-but OoT and MM's bosses also blow chunks!
      I never said they didn't. OoT's were at least of decent quality and made up for their mechanical shortcomings with their presentation. They had 3 other 3d zelda games under their belt by the time TP came out though, so there really just is no excuse for how terrible they were. Also, MM's bosses don't just blow chunks, but their chunks blow chunks too. It is kind of amazing how nobody talks about it.

                This is what I've been trying to say
                Like it's broadly 90% the same, breaking that 10% into a list of 100 0.1% differences doesn't change that, and that's also why there's no point trying to list individual chunks of that 90% similarity to support it, it's asinine busywork and the same person arguing miniscule differences is going to call any similarities I list miniscule - because taken individually, they are.
                It's just obvious to anyone who can see a broader picture.

      This is me even now, and I love Wind Waker's art style. Nintendo absolutely poisoned its whole brand in the GC era with Wind Waker and Sunshine looking like games made to placate parents before games that kids would want to play. Galaxy was obviously much easier than Sunshine, but it gave Mario a sense of class and showmanship that it needed as games moved forward. The idea that Zelda actually could have just been Wind Waker and stayed that way is horrifying. Nintendo solidified itself as the dumb baby option in the GC era and it wasn't until Switch where their attempts to break out of that and show they were for everyone really payed off.

              All games are the sum of their parts, Zelda is no different. Dark Souls does not offer the meandering villages of zelda, but what do those villages actually offer? Is it anything of substance to be missed? No. No Zelda game is more than the sum of its parts.

              nogames was eternal
              you literally couldn't talk about ps3 exclusives or even the rare good port without being shat on
              actually there was an ok era once the PS3 was quickly reduced to 300 dollars but every thread about it was still a target for trolling

              Ironic since the PS3 was a treasure trove of games compared to the later consoles.

              >current Nintendo fans are worse
              I disagree. You can at least call one or two titles in each IP weaker or downright bad entries these days. If you said anything bad about a Metroid game before Other M you'd get shat on by angry autists all thread.

              The nogames thing was Gankerintendo psyopping itself into thinking the Wii's first year wasn't even worse than the PS3s (it was) and to this day is used to simply dissuade people from trying good games. Current Nintendo fans harass people for not liking the mario movie, I think they're worse than whiny shitposters.

    BotW/TotK look shit probably in exchange for render distance. WW is too cartoony. SS is probably the closest but they decided to make most of the characters and monsters look moronic.

    When said signs usually had more than just "Hyrule Castle" with an arrow pointing you to it and wouldn't fit on a sign in any amount of reasonable text. It made him come off as a Sony fanboy that just couldn't stand that Nintendo still made games "like this". The type of "I only play M rated games, for mature gamers like myself". Instead of just taking every game for it's own merits. TP certainly is an 8/10 game, just not for the reasons he listed.

        He's also the reason why BoTW and ToTK stories are such dogshit. And is also responsible for SS's existence as a whole. We were originally going to get a direct sequel to TP until Miyamoto barged in and forced them to make an entirely new title with shitty motion control gimmicks for the swordplay, and he did it to the Zelda team while they were nearing 1/3 to 1/2 of that cancelled sequel's development. Probably the underlying reason why SS was so fricking dogshit.

            Miyamoto literally told Aonuma and Fujibayashi to disconnect BoTW's lore from the series' whole, since they were uncertain if it would be a success due to the massive chances they were taking with the formula change-up.

            >Miyamoto had them make Link's Crossbow Training, not SS.
            Both. He absolutely forced them to switch to motion controls for the swordplay in SS.

              If you provide sauce for your claims, I will read it and reconsider my position.

        TP is Aonuma being a spineless, dickless homosexual who went full OTL after people rightfully called WW shit (for the wrong reasons).

          Aonuma barely showed up on TP's development. He admitted to leaving his team of developers every once in a while to hang out with his boyfriend Fujibayashi while he was working on Minish Cap. This meant the developers were left to themselves with Miyamoto. Do you remember that scene where Zant snapped his neck and Ganondorf collapsed? Happened because Aonuma was so hands-off.
          >Eiji Aonuma: “Ten years later, the time has finally come to reveal the truth… The truth is… To be honest, I’m not sure, either! It was a mystery to most of the staff, too… The leader of the team that created that scene was well known for being a bit of a lone wolf when it came to making cutscenes. We wanted to make the best of those qualities in him, so we had him make all of the cutscenes for Twilight Princess. When he made that one, I couldn’t help thinking “The neck! The neck!” but I had immense faith in him. Anything he made must be art. I remember thinking that I just didn’t get it, so I didn’t say anything at the time.”

    I don't hate Gerstmann for the score, I hate him for being a massive hypocrite and giving MM shit for being made from OoT assets while fellating Wind Waker's cel-shading and assuming the gameplay matches the style.

      Elaborate? I don't understand what the frick that means. It's pretty consistent that someone who dislikes MM for being too similar to OOT would enjoy WWs departure from that style and being something new

        In short, Gerstmann is a homosexual and anyone who values his opinion on Zelda is a homosexual.

    The sumo stuff was kino

    Desert dungeon thru sky dungeon was good

    All of the overworld stuff is fricking terrible. What the frick is with the spindly spider web like map with a bunch of weird one- way paths

    Visually it's ass. The only places in the game you can see what they might have been going for with the aesthetic are Agithas shop, the fortune teller shop, and Ordina. The whole stained glass look takes a backseat to piss yellow for the majority of the rest of the game. Two dungeons look like unity assets with how bland they look

          that's not the HD version bro. it's the OG textures on emulator.

          I know what the HD textures look like and it's not that.

    8.8 is a good score. I'm tired of constant 9-10s or 6s

    I can't imagine anyone playing this now and giving it any higher than a 7. Even in context of what else was coming out at the time it's really bland. I legitimately think Kameo and Okami are more interesting action adventure games

      Okami was so bad it literally killed its developing company.

    8.8 was a perfectly fair score. It was a good game but it had a lot of problems. The world was kind of empty other than horse combat, and some of the dungeons felt like they were just thrown in so they had an excuse to delay the game for the Wii's launch. I think making it a Wii launch title was a bad idea, because by most measures the Gamecube version is the definitive version. The Wii version has a completely mirrored world as well due to the fact that they wanted motion controls and most players are right handed.

      It's so lopsided I really hesitate to even call it a good game. If you aren't just mainlining the dungeons it's torture

      Granted that's true of AlttP as well

    Should I try playing this on my old Wii or does the Gamecube version emulate pretty well on Dolphin?
    I only ever got like 10 hours into Twilight Princess.

          There's a lot of slowdown in Hyrule Field if you are playing with weaker hardware

    The only Zelda worth playing is alttp and the gameboy color ones. The rest is all trash.
