We have been having some fun lately over at the ZD Youtube channel lately talking to Mases’ friend Jamie, who is a long time gamer playing Ocarina of Time for the first time. In this video where we asked him about his experience with the Water Temple, he told Mas that he actually thought the Temple was one of the easiest in the game. This got us thinking about what actually makes a Zelda game “hard”. That lead to a whole conversation about it for the latest entry into the Hyrule Compendium, our Zelda chat show. We talk about the different types of challenges one could face when taking on any Legend of Zelda game. We want to know what you think about difficulty in Zelda. Does it come from puzzles, combat, or some combination of both? What games do you think are actually difficult in those categories? Are there any games in which the difficulty is artificial or unfair? Let us know in the comments!

The Hyrule Compendium is a series of brief discussions of all things Zelda. If you would like to see more, check out this playlist. We also have a lot of other fun series over on our Youtube channel including Jamie Plays Zelda, Zelda Warfare, and more! You are going to want to head on over there and subscribe to get in on the action!
