Why hate on Wind Waker and Twilight Princess?
Even if they aren't your ideal Zelda game, that just means Nintendo needs to up their game a bit more in your opinion. Personally, the one game that introduced me to the Zelda series and is still my favorite one to date is Wind Waker because of the lovely soundtrack, the new environment and the fact that Nintendo ended up trying something new by doing the cell shading coloring which I thought lead to bright and cheery atmosphere in most cases. And Twilight Princess progressed the series along as well by adding different scenarios and more enhanced CG graphics, along with a interesting story. Although I do agree with you about the fact that Twilight Princess was exceptionallyeasy for a Zelda game that doesn't mean that you should just 'ditch' the series because it wasn't your cup of tea. There are surely going to be more to be released and maybe they'll be to your liking. I think the reason why TP/WW were a bit easier was because they were originally released for the GCN which was aimed to be more of a younger person's system. Now that the Wii has been out, perhaps the new Zelda will be a improvement?

But I did kill myself.
I do think Zelda's games have become more and more "puzzlier" and less "action" every time.
I remember when I first got Ocarina of Time I thought: "I just wish I had more Stalfos to hit rather than puzzles to solve". 3D Zelda games gave a whole new meaning to blocking and charging, but unfortunately, I do think there is a need for a couple more enemies and a couple less puzzles.
i find it sad that you called wind waker a kiddie game, it did have childish looking styles, but it was just beautiful once you looked past that, and TP just has an amazing storyline and beautiful scenery and stuff, it was a little easy but it did have plot twists and turns, why cant you love it for what it is, and not just for 'how easy it is'?

Have to say, I cant really decide wether I liked TP or not. I mean, the graphics were breathtaking and the plot impressive. Just what I look for... In a good anime or, well, book. For me it felt a bit like one of those games for little kids were you push the green button to hear the next part of the story, just reworked into a more adult package, not really like a properly challenging game.
I liked WindWaker on the other hand, after I got over the initial shock of what they'd done to poor Link, that is :P
It kind of has the very opposite qualities compared to TP. It looks just like a game for little kids but the game is swamped with puzzles, loads of monsters to whack, and more side quest and things to do than one can count. Not to mention a plot so twisted it borders on the ridiculous...
Although I've watched my kids (now all grown) play Zelda games on every Nintendo console made, I've never played one ... until today. I thought my first Zelda game would end up being Ocarina of Time, which I got via the VC for my new Wii, but I am still waiting for Amazon to deliver my classic controller, so the game sits patiently on the screen...
Today I bought Twilight Princess, and fiddled with it a little bit before dinner. Gorgeous... and it was the first time I'd used the nunchuk too. Felt very natural and although it took me forever to find my horse (ha ha ha), I think I'm catching on....
Now my only choice is whether to put TP on hold till the classic controller arrives and start with OoT or to go ahead and keep playing TP while I wait for the controller....
Either way, I'll be thinking of this new TP as just a jump forward in the technology of games in this series.
Try not to take such amazing blessings of technology and gadgets for granted, kiddos, okay? This stuff is all amazing....
