I used to be a hardcore Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time lover, and I suppose I still am. I played most of the other Zelda games thinking that none of them could ever beat OoT. Then Skyward Sword came out and playing it for the first time I was amazed, I had never thought that the Zelda games could get any better than they already were and I was proven wrong. With the creative graphics, amazing gameplay and a storyline that, frankly, made me cry, the Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword is the best game I have ever played and it really opened my eyes. They set the series up perfectly and it really made me proud.
No matter how much fans and critics praise Ocarina of Time, Majora’s Mask will always be my number 1 favorite game in the Zelda series. This is because I always felt like the gameplay was the same greatness from Ocarina of Time but the story was much more deeper.
When I am sad, I listen to Zelda’s soundtrack. It’s so powerful and beautiful.
In Skyward Sword, right when Link exits the Knight Academy while following Fi, I literally just sat, not moving the controller, and stared at my television for a good 5 minutes. The music, the moonlight, the colors, everything just felt so surreal. I loved that feeling.
I have a huge crush on Ganondorf.
I have never played a Legend of Zelda game, bar about ten minutes of Ocarina of Time on my friend’s N64 when I was about ten years old.
Ocarina of Time, and the Legend of Zelda series as a whole, is the most overrated thing in the history of video games.
To this day, every time I see those 3 slots for save files in Zelda, I silently rage, because with all my other games, I like to save before each and every memorable cutscene so that I can rewatch it whenever.
Skyward Sword is the first and, as of now, only Zelda game to make me tear up. Which is hard, because I’m a stone-cold b-tch when playing games. For that reason, it will always hold a special place in my heart, even if people don’t consider it the best now or later on.
