Kotaku just published a new article discussing the stagnant state of the Legend of Zelda series. In their opinion the Zelda series has never been any better than the original game on the Nintendo Entertainment System. This is of course not the opinion of us here on the site, but that of Kotaku’s and several things mentioned in the article will cause a stir in the hearts of us Zelda fans.
For instance, the article states that Ocarina of Time is not really that good of a game and that Skyward Sword the worse game in the series. However, they do state that they feel the series is still able to be saved. They then bring up 5 points that Nintendo needs to address.
- 1. A Better World Setup
- 2. A Dungeon Revamp
- 3. Items and Controls Need Re-thinking
- 4. Zelda’s Difficulty Must Be Changed
- 5. Zelda Should Not Contain a Storyline
Several of these points are valid and I feel that the overall formula could be tinkered with. However, I do not think things are as serious as Kotaku presented things. Out of those 5 I agree with 4 out of 5. I do not agree with point number 5 as the story is one of my favorite parts to the Zelda series.
What do you think? Do you think the Zelda series needs a reboot? Are things as bad as Kotaku is making it out to seem? Let us know in the comments.
