Oh it is highly unlikely that I'd be amazed. While the Zelda's for the NES didn't impress me much (especially since I had played Golvellius for the SMS first), I really enjoyed the SNES adventure. I had a great time using the fold-up map that it came with. What a fantastic game! "Zelda is good" I thought. So then I got an N64 (first mistake) and a few games for it. When it came out, I received "Zelda Ocarina of Time" for Christmas. I heard so many great things about this game and I was excited and immediately started playing (second mistake). I played and played, with continuously decreasing interest in the game due to its inability to keep me entertained. I was in some dungeon, I can't remember where, but I suddenly became EXTREMELY bored with the game and could not power up the game without becoming queasy.

Fast forward to when Wind Waker comes out. A friend buys it, and I like the graphics, but the gameplay looks EXCEEDINGLY boring, especially with all that sailing (also I did not like the water graphics, but whatever). It looked like it played just like that lame Ocarina game! Pass!

Then out of the blue, somebody PMs or e-mails me codes to put in at Nintendo's web site to get that free Zelda bonus disc. I do it and the disc arrives shortly thereafter. I put it in and have about 5 minutes worth of fun with Zelda 1, about 8 minutes worth of fun with Zelda 2, and absolutely no fun whatsoever with Zelda 3 (because it's not on there, bastards!). I decide to try Ocarina again with the amazingly enhanced graphics. No dice. The game still sucks. Then I try that Majora's Mask game. It was a bit more interesting that the Ocarina game, but I still passed out due to boredom within the first 15 minutes or so. I also tried the Wind Waker demo. Nice graphics but BORING!

Now the new Zelda is coming out, and Link wears some REALLY fruity clothes in it. One garmet is a piece of colored cloth that covers one side of his gut... that's it! WTF? I don't care about horseback riding (of which there will probably be as much of that as Wind Waker's sailing) and I don't care about fishing. If I fished in a Shenmue game it would probably be fun, but Nintendo just has a way of making games seem really... well... not very fun. It's just something about them that they put in their games that I can't explain. I have no idea why everyone gets hard-on's for Zelda games. Or Mario games (though the one for the DS looks pretty cool). Dontcha get sick of playing the same crap again and again with a new coat of paint?

If you're gonna get obsessed with a game, at least get obsessed with a good game like Space Harrier.
