You mean what we all know here but won't acknowledge publicly: the N64 Zeldas were as lame as the CD-i ones. The only good 3D Zelda would be Windwaker.

I liked Zelda 2 more, too.
It's sad that to this day and outside places like this board it's still being considered "the bad Zelda game" (CDi memes don't count) when it's actually a very competent game.
Then again I'm super fond of stuff like Zelda 2, Faxanadu, Battle of Olympus or Fire Bam. I kinda love those old-timey sidescroller RPGs.

>> No.4658708

Ocarina is a game that's really only good for the aesthetics. It's the type of thing that even a child would not be challenged by.

Zelda 2 is absolutely better in mechanics, featuring tough, merciless, and demanding combat and tricky exploration.

>> No.4658742

i wish nintendo would make a new zelda in the zelda 2 format. strong focus on duel esque combat like in z2, preferably not piss easy. add in some items from the top down and 3d titles if they fit. maybe drop the experience point system, but keep a similar magic system

In retrospective, as a LoZ game is bad. And one day people will say the same about BotW.

But it's not "a bad Zelda game" for whatever that means. It has all the hallmarks of the series. Hell, it invented more than half the things the series would later use.

ocarina plays great on 3ds and with a decent emu/controller setup. I really don't get the meme. guess people are just ass terrible at early 3d or don't want to put the effort in to improve.

I liked it a lot too! Played it back to back with Faxanadu despite some lukewarm reactions both of them are getting nowadays. To me Zelda 2 is a surprisingly competent game with a focus on a decently designed combat system.

>>4658561
It’s honestly my favorite Zelda game even if it’s different from other Zelda games. The combat is very simple but very fun, the puzzles aren’t hand-holdy but also aren’t nearly as cryptic as the first game, and there’s not really a “low” part of the game as there’s never too much down time between gozing after dungeons.

There's nothing "autistic" about it, you're just playing apologist for shit game design. Zelda is about being immersed in a big world to explore. Removing the player from the experience by switching viewpoints and relegating explorable areas to sub-zones is stupid.

Huge amount of glitches, egregious typos, lackluster art style, poor controls, poor exploratory elements due to the aforementioned lack of seamless transition between areas, etc. And no, I don't hate the game because it's difficult, I hate it because it's a piece of shit that took everything good about Zelda 1 and purposely shit on it. It's like Mario combined with FF1, it's a steaming turd and I don't know how anyone could possibly defend it.

No when MC exists,You may not like the gameplay buy at least it was great for it's time and by great I mean it had more than 5 fucking dungeons (Including final boss)
PS:I know MM also has 5 dungeons but at least it's full of sidequest unlike MC

People already are. It's mostly story fags and people that want yet another OOT clone.

That you can appreciate the merits of an older game without bias but stop short of being able to appreciate early 3D games because of bias, not realizing 2D and 3D are different breeds.

I don't screenshot every person that complains about the game, but more often than not they're bitching that the game was story light, and that there weren't enough traditional elements liked themed temples, lock and key navigation, musical instruments, and linear item based progression. I'd say it sounds like they want Ocarina of Time remix for the fifth time.

Yeah, no, if anything most OoT fans dislike BotW for not being close enough to the formula we've become accustomed to.
