    So, what exactly do you mean by Link's "reincarnation?"

    Link is always the same individual and soul, in my opinion. His bloodline may be different, but he's always the exact same soul. People think that's the same with Zelda/Hylia and Ganondorf/Demise, but it really isn't. You see, Zelda and Ganondorf are individuals in their own right, who are only...

    What's Ganondorf's motivation for wanting the Triforce and world domination?

    In my opinion, Ganondorf and Demise are vastly different...and yet the same. Here's my take on it. A lot of people have speculated on what Demise is supposed to be. From demigod to some being from an alternate dimension, etc. The truth is quite clear to me... He's the Devil. He's the Satan of...

    How many Zelda games did you play until you found your favourite?

    Tough question. My all time favourite is probably Twilight Princess (Wind Waker and Ocarina of Time push it close, though). Ocarina was my first, (only four when I first played it) then Majora's Mask (although I didn't get into it first time around because it was so, so different to OOT), then...

    Did you find Zelda games hard when you were a child?

    Hell yes. I was 4 years old when I first played Ocarina of Time. It took me ages to get through the opening couple of hours of the game. I finally gave up on it inside Jabu-Jabu's belly. My grandfather helped me get through that part and then I remember just losing interest in the game shortly...

    Where does Ganon/Ganondorf go from here?

    Day off work today and had nothing to do (except putting up the Christmas tree), so have just spent the last couple of hours just reading this forum and other Zelda dedicated ones. It very quickly became a Ganon oriented one, as I feel that he's always a good talking point. While Link and Zelda...

    Do you think we'll ever see Ganondorf again?

    I was happy to see Ganon return in Breath of the Wild (as he is, after all, the main antagonist of the series). But what about his human form? What about Ganondorf? Ganon himself may be more iconic, but I've always preferred the Gerudo man to the rampaging boar. We were spoiled with him back in...

    Your Main Outfit

    I usually wear the cap/tunic/trousers of Twilight I got from the Smash Bros Link amiibo. Now, though, I've taken to wearing the cap/tunic/trousers of the Wild (the one you get once you complete all the Shrines). Either way, I always have Link looking traditional. Boring? Maybe. But for me, Link...

    What did you think of Ganon in this game?

    Interesting responses guys. I still can't help but find Ganon underwhelming in this game. I know there is an argument that Ganon is intelligent in this game with his plan succeeding 100 years prior (taking over Guardians, killing Champions, almost killing Link, etc), but I still think he's being...

    What did you think of Ganon in this game?

    Personally, I'm a little disappointed so far. I haven't finished the game yet (I have another two Divine Beasts to go and a few more Shrines to do). I love the game as a whole, and I even like the story (even though it is a tad weak), but the villain situation is by far the biggest problem for...

    What order do you recommend completing Divine Beasts?

    Thanks for the responses guys. I think I'm gonna tackle Rito next and leave Gerudo for last, simply because I can't stand the idea of being constantly harassed by Yiga Clan members (honestly, those guys are annoying enough already).

    What order do you recommend completing Divine Beasts?

    I've only beaten the Zora one so far (spending most of my time doing side quests and completing Shrines). Where should I head next? Most people seem to think the Gerudo one is the hardest, would you agree with that? Basically, I want the last one I beat to be the best experience, the most...

    How would you feel about a Zelda game taking place in our world?

    I understand where you're coming from, but I think you're missing what I'm actually suggesting here. The whole point of this (theoretical) game would be to make the player feel...well, uncomfortable, I suppose, lol. In time, of course, as the game progressed, we would come to realise that this...

    Will it really be worth the wait? Worries for the new game

    What parts do you think are going to be bad? Everything looks good, to me. I'm just worried that they're going to mess up the story.

    Will it really be worth the wait? Worries for the new game

    I just have this feeling that Nintendo are going for a post-apocalyptic world kind of experience. That just really worries me, for some reason. It makes me think we'll be losing a lot of a story and a chunk of dialogue. In fact, I remember reading somewhere online (I can't recall where) that...

    Will it really be worth the wait? Worries for the new game

    I ended up voting unsure. You see, I have numerous concerns, I'll admit. Most of them are similar to yours. I'm mostly worried that the story is going to take a backseat, and that would be a major problem for me, because I think the story is the most important thing of all. It's what gives the...

    What Other Zelda Merchandise Do You Own Besides Games?

    Just books, basically. Hyrule Historia and walkthroughs/strategy guides for Twilight Princess and Skyward Sword.

    How would you feel about a Zelda game taking place in our world?

    I remember noticing the star constellations in Wind Waker and wondering if Nintendo were trying to tell us that the Great Sea and Hyrule were connected to our world somehow. Whether or not the series is taking place in the past or future is up for debate, I'll admit. For all we know it could...

    How would you feel about a Zelda game taking place in our world?

    First of all, I'd just like to say in advance that this rather crazy idea doesn't belong to me, it belongs to a friend of mine (who isn't a massive fan of the franchise (he's only played Ocarina of Time and Twilight Princess)). He brought it up to me the other day and I'm finally starting to...

    Miyamoto does not want to tell us if Links usual green garb will return in BotW

    I think so, yes. I'm not sure about the shield but I'm almost 100% sure about the tunic.

    Miyamoto does not want to tell us if Links usual green garb will return in BotW

    I think you'll get the iconic green tunic just before the final battle with Ganon. I think that's the point where Nintendo will want everything to start feeling really familiar for the player. I mean, there's no hiding the fact that this game is breaking a lot of the Zelda formula, so I think...

    Perception of Evil

    Well, I think it depends on the villain. Demise, for example, clearly knows that he's evil personified and he loves it. Basically, Demise is The Legend of Zelda's Satan. He's the Devil, so of course he's completely evil. Other villains like Majora and Malladus are more like demons. These two are...

    "Ganon" is back

    Majora being alien and mysterious is exactly why it doesn't appeal to me. Yes, being mysterious does work up to a point, but I feel with Majora we're left with just too many unanswered questions. I mean, we never see Majora at all, really, not even at the very end of the game, it's still latched...

    "Ganon" is back

    ] Okay, I'll run through these villains one by one (although I can't really talk about Lady Maud as I haven't played Tri Force Heroes yet (although I am aware of the character and the story)). Majora. An overrated villain, in my honest opinion. So many Zelda fans adore Majora, and I can (to a...

    "Ganon" is back

    Would you care to elaborate on why they're better, exactly? I don't actually think Ganon is the best villain, I think Ganondorf is the best villain (that's why I hope he appears in human form in Breath of the Wild at some point). He's a believable villain, while still being thoroughly evil at...

    "Ganon" is back

    Hey guys. First time poster here. I just want to say that I don't understand how anyone could want a new villain yet again. I mean, sure, having a change of villain is nice every so often, but we had that with Skyward Sword. Ganon hasn't been a villain in a major Zelda game for 10 years...
