Have You Gotten a Friend to Play Zelda?


Dec 1, 2009
That place where things are.
The only time I ever got one to play one of the games was when they already liked the series anyway. Everyone else either wasn't interested or didn't like it. Of course, this topic has already mentioned how most people were about it anyway.

But now I usually just don't bother bringing it up until someone else does, then I'll try to get them to play.


Yes I got her to play TP...The olny problme is the fact she won't Fight Shadow beasts,Bosses,any 'monster' in genaral...so I have to -.-

Yes, my cousin. He isa HUGE Star Wars fan and he didn't really want to play Zelda. I let him borrow TP and he beat it in about a week. He's seriously hooked to the series now. I'm letting him borrow WW now, and he says he's going to get SS when it comes out.

My next door neighbour had never played a Zelda game beyond last year. It was until I showed him Phantom Hourglass that his interest sparked.

He suddenly dropped all of the games he planned to play and begged to borrow PH from me after I finished it. I said I wanted to play it a bit before I lent it to him, so I gave him a lend of Twilight Princess instead.

Since he was new to the Zelda formula, it took him a while to get used to the gameplay...etc, but once he did, he never stopped playing.

After he finished TP and eventually PH, he ran out to look for previous games. His interest hasnt ceased and he is still playing old games to this day, all thanks to me and my copy of Phantom Hourglass.


Yes I have. I made my friends (and kids I babysit) obssed with Zelda all b/c of TP and that only an ok game!!! But they always want 2 play it.... >.<

Luckily a few of my friends are Nintendo fans(and Zelda fans as well), so I didn't really have to get a friend to start playing Zelda.
In my case, it's usually they are either a Ninty nerd like me, play FPS's on other systems like the 360/Ps3, or just don't play video games altogether.

Yep, I actually started a whole web of my friends telling each other about Zelda. Now they're all hooked onto it.

I got into Zelda by seeing a poster of WW and trying it out. If only I new how addicting it would be...

I'm actually trying to get my cousin to like Zelda. So far it's working out good ever since I told him about SS, and how it's gonna use the Wii Motion Plus.

I haven't but I think one of my friends is the one who got me into it. It's hard to say because one told me to play OoT 'cause it was so amazing, so I did and I hated it. Then a while later another friend got me playing it and I enjoyed it from then on.
But I haven't gotten anyone to play it. Most of my friends don't play video games. Then again, I am not a hardcore gamer myself.

I did. We used to trade games and go over to play Mario and Zelda. But now, since I moved, everybody is taking about 360, it's so annoying. So currently, no.

Queen Zelda

Yeah I got a close friend of mine playing LoZ. She started with Twilight Princess. Now I'm getting her into OoT and Majora's Mask. :)

I did manage to get one of my friends to play Zelda. The only downside was that, although I begged him not to, he made his first Zelda Twilight Princess. However, when he started, I had yet to play Twilight Princess, so I had no clue what he was talking about. This was quite a few months before I got majorly involved in the Zelda community, so I didn't have much a clue what he was talking about. Since he didn't play Ocarina of Time, I was left guessing he was lost when I tried to compare what he said to Ocarina of Time.

Then, I forced him to borrow my copy of Ocarina of Time after he finished Twilight Princess. By that time, I had already completed Twilight Princess, so I could make sense of everything, yet he didn't. I then made him borrow my copy of Majora's Mask after beating Ocarina of Time. So, yeah, I managed to convert someone. :P

My older brother got me to play it and I got my younger brother to play it. I tried to get my sister to play it as well, but she gave up after Navi woke Link up.
