For a game that I complain about not being whimsical enough, Twilight Princess still manages to have the funniest moment of the entire series for me. This is the one scene that makes me laugh more than anything else in Zelda: The moment when the Hyrule Castle Town soldiers duck out of helping Ilia and Ralis get to Kakariko Village. At this point in the game, the player would be trying to get into the Lakebed Temple, and this mission…

Sorry about postponing the Great Bay Temple review, but in the meantime I wanted to briefly talk about the first visit (or first couple) to the Dark World in A Link to the Past. I played Ocarina of Time before I played A Link to the Past, but I ended up beating the older game first, so I had very few — if any — expectations of the series at that time. It was a very fun game to me,…

Arbiter’s Grounds from Twilight Princess was an interesting dungeon… a Hyrulian prison set deep in the desert and, seemingly, run by the Sages. Being the game’s scary dungeon, it had plenty of undead and a creepy song. What a lot of people don’t realize, though, is the opening jingle of the song — that demonic breath, or growl — foreshadows something later in the dungeon, something that also happens to be one of my favorite moments in Zelda and one…

Yes another one of these. Every so often or when I don’t have another editorial to bring you, I’ll be going over my favorite moments in the series and asking your thoughts about them. This time I want to bring up a moment I loved from Ocarina of Time: the first time we entered the Forest Temple during the Adult Link portion of the game. I’ll probably go into this dungeon as a whole in a future Dungeons editorial series…

In such a long-running series as Zelda, everyone’s going to have their favorite moments. That can be because of the story; the moment might be especially epic, surprising, emotional, or even funny. Other times it’s because of the gameplay, but this time it’s definitely about the story. One of my favorite moments in the series (not necessarily my number one favorite though… not sure I could pick that) is Ganondorf’s first appearance in The Wind Waker, at the end of…

One of the many things The Legend of Zelda series is known for is having truly amazing and memorable moments. Who can forget their first experience with a Zelda game? We can all remember certain moments from each Zelda game that we can look back on and relive over and over. Other parts of the games seem a bit fuzzy even though they were still an enjoyable experiences of their own. It’s just that Zelda games are all packed with…

Zelda Informer has recently started a new series of articles entitled The Top 100 Moments in Zelda. In this ten part series they will reveal which Zelda moments made the top one hundred. The nominations came from a long standing request on their forums and included of 400 distinctly different moments to choose from. How they narrowed that list down and agreed on a final arrangement is beyond me. In this first set of 10 some of the more popular…

The April issue of Nintendo Power has a neat feature showing off the greatest moments from The Legend of Zelda. The spread includes screen shots from some classic scenes in the game and includes a bit of commentary on each scene explaining why that particular scene is memorable.
