WW and PH

So I've been trying really hard to get into WindWaker and Pantom Hourglass, because everyone says they're great games, but I just can't. It's not the graphics; I love the graphics. I think it's just that I'm very impatient.

When I get a new game, I want to run around and do things pretty instantly. What I noticed with these two games is that they force you to slow down and avoid being spotted and whatnot in the very beginning. This simply does not work for me, especially as a Zelda fan of old.

Does anyone else hate having to sneak around in the beginning of these games?

I loved the sneaking around bit, and I loved all of Wind Waker. It's one of the best games I've played. Wasn't much for Phantom Hourglass though.

To me, sneaking around involves a lot of sitting around, watching, waiting. And not doing anything. When you finally do get to do something, it's sometimes just running somewhere. If you get caught, you have to start all over again. I'm not really a big fan of that sort of thing.

Ausden is an unknown quantity at this point

So you don't like Splinter Cell? Or Metal Gear Solid series? It's always good to find a game that takes you out of your norm.

No, actually, I didn't. Not that they're similar in any way to Zelda, but to answer your question, no, I didn't like them.

Well, what do you mean by 'sneaking'? The Forsaken Fortress?

Most Likely. Do you sneak anywhere else in that game? Especially since he said at the beginning.

Yeah, the fortress in the beginning. It's so boring that I can't even suffer through it enough to get to the actual game. I did once a few years ago, but then I got bored on that huge vast ocean. Too much time wasted getting from one point to the other for me.

I wouldn't mind so much if it was toward the end of the game, like in Ocarina of Time, where you have to sneak around the Gerudo Fortress.

I didn't mind the sneaking at all. It kinda sucks that you'd miss out on a good game just because one part but oh well.

Maybe I can find a hack in a few years that eliminate the ocean aspect, and then I'll have someone play through the beginning for me.
