IGN chat bob about Zelda

http://uk.wii.ign.com/articles/119/1192308p2.html

The article is entitled, "What Zelda can learn from Skyrim" but it more like 'my dream Zelda.' While 'Richard George' makes some good points, I don't think he remembers Windwaker or Twilight Princess very well at all.

For example he doesn't think either managed to be as cinematic as OoT.... Choices which were clearly made due to graphical restraints he puts down to artist direction (when he talks about wanting a more open world and no connecting tunnels between the parts.)

To add insult to injury he clearly implies the storylines in Windwaker and TP were crap. Says Zelda being kidnapped is dull and she needs fleshing out - Forgetting Shiek, Tetra and her role in TP obviously (and wasnt she omitted from MM?)

He also thinks the boss battles have failed to caputre the epicness of OOT's bosses. Personally I think TP's are the best and very cinematic. WW has has the best first and final bosses.

As far as im concerned, Zelda has only ever got better in everyway concerned (Well OK OOT has the best soundtrack but thats it). I will say that Nintendo seem to hold back on all the bells a whistles which could have made any of the previous games even better - proper cgi cutscenes, voice work, (perhaps), full orcestral soundtrack (midis in TP was a bit insulting) and a better wealth of hidden extras. I would also welcome more fun dungeons, they can be a bit dull. But I dont think the franchise has ever took a step back, and anyone who thinks that is just miffed that Nintendo likes to take the franchise in different directions!

Opinions?

Adding most of that to Zelda wouldn't make it Zelda anymore. It would make it every other game of that genre.

@Rin: Yeah, LoZ is its own genre, Nintendo knows what to do with its own game, and what to add to make it different than the others.

Didn't bother reading it. It's obviously going to be filled with crap any decent gamer knows is wrong. Not to mention he's telling Zelda to get more like a game that hasn't even been released.

^ This. I didn't even read the first post. I saw the title of the thread and posted.

Seriously, IGN is the biggest crapsack for anything outside of reviews and system rumors, and even then, I get second opinions from other gaming pubs/blogs and Metacritic.
