Im sick of hearing this comment from you. you labeling Zelda as a casual game in an insult to us who have been there since the beginning.
How the HELL is that an insult? Do you consider yourself so "elite" at video games, that the idea of playing a casual game offends you? What are you doing with Nintendo then?
Just cuz you join the franchise in a KID FRIENDLY era, does not give you any right, nor credibility to call this a casual game, the only reason it seems this way to you is cuz you joined late, your a kid, and have admitted numerous time that you dislike playing games that are challenging!
If you want to call me a kid, I strongly suggest you at least say it a way that doesn't make you look like a 13 year old who has just discovered the internet. I hate to stoop down to this level. Really, I do. I can normally take an insult, but what I can't handle is hypocrisy. If you can't type out your comment maturely, then getting called a "kid" by you is about as asinine as being called a kid by a grade school child. If you want to play the "I'm an adult" card, I suggest you bloody well act like one.
Next is the fact you have to stoop so low as to insult me rather than hold a polite intellectual discussion on your disagreement. I can handle that. It's the internet. What I can't handle is that you stoop so low after claiming that my comment is "an insult". There's nothing insulting about the series being for casuals. Yes, the original four games were hard...but that was in a time when ALL GAMES were hard. That time is over and the series is clearly directed at casual gamers now. Why that insults you is beyond me, but I can only assume that you view yourself as some mighty gaming prodigy above everyone else and the idea of "lowering yourself" and playing some casual series is just too much for your ego to handle. =/
you even said ALttP was a bad game cuz you actually had to explore and *gasp* think in order to complete something within the game.
Explore? Yes. Think? No.
You sir are in the wrong franchise if you looking for a casual game!
Because this is some serious hardcore **** right here.
yes your right games like WW, TP, and SS, are extremely easy,
Every game after LA is extremely easy. Time to wake up.
so stop telling people if they are looking for a challenge to quit playin Zelda, cuz the ones of us who are upset at the lack of challenge are the true core fans that can fondly remember when a Zelda game gave them a challenge, and we want it back, we deserve it.
Here's some more of your hypocrisy...you claim I complain about everything...and here you give more evidence that it is you, in fact, who complains over everything they do. You deserve nothing. You cling to something to series hasn't had...in 20 years. Get...the hell...over it. If you aren't a fan of the easy Zelda games, then you stopped being a fan nearly 15 years ago when OoT was released. Am I happy that the games are easy? No. But unlike you, I actually care about the series and can separate my own wants and needs with what's best for the series. If they made Zelda hard again, they would only alienate their consumers and the series would die. I don't want that. And easiness is a small sacrifice to make for the sake of the series survival.
its not fair to us that they are alienating they oldest and truest fans for these newbs who want the game to play for you.
OK, I was giving you the benefit of the doubt before...but no, you're obvious a self absorbed brat with an ego too large for you to retain. Again, if you want to make yourself sound like a long time fan and adult, I suggest you stop typing like a child. It doesn't help your case and makes you look like a complete wannabe.
You said so yourself all you wanna do is play the main story line.... well all i have to say to you about that is that YOU are playing the wrong game!
Unlike you, I can handle the fact my needs are a minority. Ideally, I'd like a game to focus only on a huge main quest and get rid of the sidequests....but I realize that this would also alienate their consumer as well. So I deal with it. It's a small sacrifice for the greater good. You and I are both minorities. I can accept that. It isn't really a choice either. It's not our choice whether we follow our selfish desires or let the series prosper. It's Nintendo's. And as a business, Nintendo has chosen to appeal to the majority so they can profit and the series can prosper.
You can't change anything. You three options.
1) You can accept that Nintendo has been a family casual based company for 17 years and enjoy the series for what it is.
2) You can accept that Nintendo has been a family casual based company for 17 years and move on to one of the many series that caters to what you want, thus pleasing yourself and allowing the franchise to survive.
3) You can sit here and pout like an upset 5 year old who feels the world should revolve around him.
sorry dude, but ive been wanting to say that for a LONG time, and its only text so yeah is reads as rude and that im just nailing you to the cross, but i mean to be telling you this in the most respectful and informative way! so im hoping you dont come at me with some rude "before you throw a hissy fit" comment again.
If that's what you consider respectful, then you have problems. In fact, I call bull. If you really had an issue with me, you could have contacted me personally. But now it's everyone's business and all you've done is spread your pitiful teenage where it doesn't belong.
