Zelda is a traditional fantasy game. What Zelda needs is more traditional fantasy. It is thanks to Aonuma that Zelda got polluted with all sorts of crap that doesn’t make sense such as trains. I don’t think Aonuma has ever read a fantasy book.Zelda needs to get back to more traditional fantasy. Did you see the nasty depiction of Zelda in Wii U’s Nintendo Land? Why does Nintendo keep doing this shit? Don’t they realize why Wind Waker was so hated? People want traditional fantasy, not wacky Japanese interpretations.”But traditional fantasy is western…” This actually isn’t true. What we think of traditional fantasy is Asian. The origin seems to come from India with their myths. Scholars know that The Odyssey is a revision to an Indian epic. There’s a reason why the Japanese feel as comfortable with a knight with a sword and shield slaying dragons as everywhere else in the world. Fantasy is universal. But Aonuma-crazy-ways are distinctly Japanese and not even the Japanese like it.
What is the difference between Classic Zelda and Aonuma Zelda? Classic Zelda was more traditional fantasy. There were no crazy machines. There was magic. There were evil knights. There were dragons. There were no trains.
People felt VERY COMFORTABLE with the content of Classic Zelda. But I feel extremely UNCOMFORTABLE with the content of Modern Zelda.
