Many people on this site have complained about how terrible it was to have Navi shoving information down you throat, or how Fi told you things you already knew. Many people have also complained about how annoying a compainion can be, especially when they tell you things you know, even if it is your second playthrough of the game. Very few Zelda games do not have a companion, ALTTP is one that is considered the best Zelda game ever. I think that some of this preference comes from the fact that you don't have an annoying companion forcing you to go through tutorials. ALTTP had a few tutorials but they were mostly optional and most of the explaining how to use the items comes in the text that appears when you pick up the item. There have been very few companions' in the Zelda series that have been helpful beyond giving you obscure hints. Some people love the companions' and others hate them. What do you think on this subject, let me know, discuss it between yourselves. Thanks.
