  1. Wow finally I hear that I’m not the only person in the world that hates Mario 64.

    I can’t remember excatly when I first played Ocarina of Time, but I know I played it long before the Gamecube was a known thing, and I played it and played it, but try as I might, I just could not get into it, to me the game just wasn’t able to draw me in. I mean, I WANTED to like it, but it just didn’t happen. A while later I also got Majora’s Mask, and I thought it looked interesting, but as before there was just something about it that was not able to draw me in. Origiinally I wanted to return to Majora’s Mask, but it never happened.

    I pre-ordered Wind Waker for the Gamecube and loved it from the moment I got it and loaded it for the first time. The cel shaded graphics are what did it for me, it just drew me in like no other RPG before (except for the Shenmue series) or since have been able to do. It made it feel like it was a cartoon where I was playing the lead role, and totally drew me in to that world and all the characters you meet and team up with were just sooo cute (I had a sort of crush on Medli for a while, and I’m a grown man) and there was so much to see and do in the game, I spent ages just sailing around searching for out of the way stuff to do.

    Never owned any other Nintendo consoles other that the N64 or Gamecube, so I’ve never played any other Zelda games.
