Anyone else here actually like the Water Temple?

>> No.2223307

I did when I played through it again as an adult on the DStriple

I've come to realize I never used the map in Zelda as a kid because I was retarded

I thought it was pretty clever actually, people just hate it because they played the game when they were like four

It's my favorite temple in the game. I still don't fully understand why it's so infamous.

There's a Dr. Slump anime?! I thought it was only a manga.

It pissed me off in the original one since removing your boots was such a chore. But I replayed it on the 3DS and turning the iron boots into an item actually made it sort of enjoyable. It's a shame that Dark Link is a complete pushover when you know to not Z-target him and Morpha is still a little underwhelming.

>> No.2223431

Wasn't there a rumor that 50% of it was meant for the Light Temple in an older build of OOT?

>> No.2223436

I do.
I mean yeah, it's a little bit tedious changing the Iron Boots, but every other problem is due to player error and not faulty design, and it's got a really cool feel and design to it, much more structured than many other Temples.

The boss is fucking cancer though, get that shit out of my life Nintendo.

I wouldn't be surprised given how much OoT, and many other Zeldas, get shuffled around and changed out during development.

>> No.2223445

The music gives me goosebumps

>> No.2223452

I am ashamed to say that twice I have played OoT and twice I got pissed at the water temple. Ended up quitting both times with the intentions of coming back and finishing it later.

Do it. You still have a lot of game left.

I do.
I never got why it reached internet meme status.

It's no lie that the Water Temple can be difficult (though most of it is just tedious) at certain points. People have just exaggerated it to astronomical proportions.

>> No.2223526

I, for one do like it.

Someday. Don't actually own the game anymore. Wouldn't mind picking it back up again.

>> No.2223534

>>2223324
I don't know about others. but the reason I had an issue with it was because I was constantly having to switch between boots, and the problem lies within the loading times for opening and closing the menu. It's a slow process. And it becomes a very tedious process.

>> No.2223536

>>2223298
I never finished it.

Honestly, I never actually beat it. I put the game down for a while so I wouldn't get frustrated, then due to circumstances I wasn't able to play the game again.

I thought that was the Spirit Temple? It would explain why there were so many reflection-based puzzles.

its fine in the 3ds version

That's because boots become a c-item.

Annoying, but not impossible.

Pay attention to the torch placement and you'll be fine.

The boots were the most painful part.

>> No.2223585

As a Dungeon is kinda sucked, but the main puzzle gimmick was novel, the longshot was a sweet update, the Shadow Link fight is unparalleled and the Boss made both Link and fangirls wet.

also that chill as fuck tune

and there's little lit-up paths to the places where you can change the water level

>> No.2223606

It took 9-year-old me ages to beat it, but I liked The Water Temple. I didn't mind spending hours in it 'cause its atmosphere was a hell of a lot more relaxed than the other temples. I found that most of the other ones had this unsettling, foreboding atmosphere that made me want to finish them asap. I still get chills whenever I hear that goddamn Forest Temple theme.

People tend to forget to get that key in the central pillar...you know, the one where the way is revealed when you rise the water inside the pilar.

I like underwater levels AND sewer levels.

Spent a lot of time swimming as a kid.

I never understood why people called it "hard". Somewhat confusing, maybe. But far from hard.

Shadow Temple was harder.

It's pretty good in any version but the 64

Same. I liked that "evil swimming pool" aesthetic of the Water Temple, and I've spent half my childhood in swimming pools.

Apparently the Spirit Temple was 100% as it was intended.

I really like the Chinese aesthetic. For just atmosphere, it's second only to the Forest Temple.

There's two. The first one is called Dr. Slump: Arale-chan and the second just Dr. Slump.

The slight changes they made in the 3DS one make it way better.
