good, you guys like zelda. don't fucking go on threads regarding OTHER games that you would literally bend down to be sword fucked by link. i like zelda, too. but apparently you people couldn't resist getting a hard-on for people who have elf ears and wear medieval clothing.
there's no reason to say final fantasy is better than zelda or zelda is better than final fantasy ... THEY'RE TWO DIFFERENT GAMES. although, the love for zelda games has become ridiculous.
ocarina of time was wonderful, a well accomplished game indeed. then they released majora's mask. ok, same concept but you can wear masks! ... which make you different. it was also fun. then they released wind waker, which was basically ocarina of time with cel-shaded graphics and islands. the twilight princess was pretty good, too, since it was also another iteration of ocarina of time but this time we were given the new and improved wii motion controls which actually made the game unbearable for me (i for one like to sit on my lazy ass and experience my life wasting away while playing video games).
actually, now that i think about it, every zelda game has the same exact concept. boy is living regular life, boy becomes adult and has to leave because something bad has happened, boy learns about ganondorf, boy pulls master sword, boy has to run some more errands, boy kills ganondorf.
EVERY. SINGLE. GAME. i have to experience the same characters and same enemies. the stories are practically the same, as well.
i don't know how nintendo earns your respect by releasing the same re-hashed game every 4 years or so. all they do is slightly change the story and graphics. in zelda's case, they change and swap out some different items (ocarina for the baton, epona for the boat). these are the same people who rag on grand theft auto for practically releasing another game which happens to be a re-hash of previous releases.
there's nothing wrong with zelda. in fact, many companies do this such as the halo series. all the FPS games tend to have the exact same concept.
i just don't get the respect that everyone throws at zelda.
Honestly, I grew up playing Zelda so I became a huge fan. However, after I played "Kingdom Hearts" I thought I'd take a look at Final Fantasy. I played Final Fantasy XII and was a bit disappointed in it, so I kinda turned away from the series.
