Y'know what? Forget my earlier post, I've had a change of heart. I'm pissed that there won't be any voice acting in this game. Fact is, if I ever feel nostalgic for "the good old silent Zelda", I'll play the 14+ games without voice acting. There's been enough of that, and it's time to step up and evolve. Change has happened many times in the series, and for the most part it worked out pretty damn well. If they keep playing it safe, the game will get stale. I don't want that, and deep down I don't think anyone wants that either. Accept change, and the series may get even better.
Could they screw up? Yeah, it's entirely possible, but not likely in my opinion. For a company like Nintendo that consistently churns out excellent games, I doubt they'd screw up with one of their most popular franchises. And for anyone who says "Zelda isn't a good series for voice acting", you have me positively bewildered. Zelda arguably has more depth and emotion than any other Nintendo series (or video games in general, for that matter). Voice acting tends to work out well for that type of thing. Rather than the typical stream of one-liners, we'd be likely to get emotionally-charged speechs that'd stay with us for quite a bit of time. THAT is the kind of stuff that'll make me believe it could be the best game of all time. Not new controls or graphics or whatever, but something truly risky that the series has seen nothing like before. So yeah, I'm disappointed that there won't be voice acting.
I don't want Link to talk though. Gotta leave something the same.
