Not every Zelda game can be remembered for its amazing gameplay, tight story, and interesting characters. Some are just out of left field in terms of those three key points that we remember them for the…other things they brought to the table. Thanks to one set of Zelda fans, we take a look at five such titles that were either just obscure or downright crazy.
GameOver Jesse (along with his compatriots) just recently posted a video talking about the top five most obscure and crazy Zelda games out there. According to them, the honorable mentions for this category include Zelda II: The Adventure of Link, Hyrule Warriors, and Link’s Crossbow Training. As for the list itself, it includes titles from the franchise such as Tri Force Heroes, Tingle’s Rosy Rupeeland, and BS Zelda no Densetsu (AKA Ancient Stone Tablets).
Of course the top spot goes to a Zelda CD-i game and it goes to the final one in the series, Zelda’s Adventure. With its low budget, short development time, two years worth of testing, and bad gameplay, its no wonder it made the top of this list. What makes this even more sad is that they were actually inspired to make a game similar to that of A Link to the Past.
What do you think of this list? Is there an obscure and crazy Zelda game that they missed? Let us know in the comments below!
