I love Nintendo. I'm playing through WindWaker with the kids and we're having a blast. Yes, it's the same game they always release but, fuck it, we don't give a shit. We played Minish Cap too which is the epitome of 2D Zelda.

I'm an asshole.

Best combat system of the entire franchise. Aside from some late game padding (which itself isn't too bad assuming you didn't use a walkthrough and actually just explored the hell out of the ocean) and the forced need to constantly change the wind too often (which is a bit annoying since the sailing is otherwise FUCKING AWESOME), it's one of my favorite games of the era.

Real fucking great soundtrack and the graphics have only gotten better with age.

Finished the first one (Phantom Hourglass), about 20% in the other one (Spirit Tracks).
Too busy too keep at it right now, but they're quite enjoyable and have some nice twists over the original.

They delayed the PC version for whatever reason but I read that they're supposedly doing some stuff with graphics for the PC version so hopefully it's worth it. I did only pay $35 so I probably won't be upset considering I paid $12 for AA and it was awesome, heh.

WindWaker was the last great Zelda and the last one I wanted to finish and enjoyed entirely (other than nauseating Tingle.) TP was fairly terrible being huge, slow, chunky controls on the wolf, and just fairly boring. The 2D stuff I've never much liked ports aside except for Link's Awakening, and the 2 on the DS controlled like shit and were backtrack nightmares.

I'm so on the fence with Zelda, and with incapable of enjoying using the Wii anymore I have no idea if I'll bother with the new one coming on there shortly. I can see pissing $50, putting 10-20hours on it and giving up from lack of motivation.

I miss when they were awesome like WindWaker, kinda Ocarina, and then the original SNES and NES titles.
