Re: Windwaker is better then TP!
I called the game childish because it had childish aspects to it. I never called anyone here childish or intoned that people that played the game were childish, except that to favor the light heartedness and puerile styling of the game play of
was to accept that the game was geared more for a younger audience.
That being said, I played, beat and got everything in that game and have repeatedly stated that I got a lot of enjoyment out of it, and that
, based on my age, was geared more for someone like me. Therefore saying that it is a maturity issue is the same as saying that it's an age issue, not the same as calling people immature.
What seceded from my points, unfortunately, was a big flame war about immaturity, which of course is all very immature
I don't appreciate that Tott chose to start the flame war against anyone that thought that
was better, whether it applied to
participating in asinus buccal stimulation or anyone else for that matter, clearly this was done for Tott's entertainment purposes and further at the expense of others. And the point that was made that this pointed to Tott's relative maturity, if not his lack of social graces is really quite accurate.
All that being said, go read a book or something Tott, stop personally insulting people that have a different opinion than you, and let's all stop the flame war.
edit: Oh, I almost forgot, the point about
tried and was probably most successful of any franchise ever for, the unattainable goal of catering to old and young audiences alike. Majora's Mask's goal, in contrast, was in catering to the unconventional convention that is Nintendo's undying style of 'giving people what Nintendo thinks they need, not what they say they want.'
Majora's Mask is a testament to this 'slightly weird' world that Nintendo creates, and had created before with some of the off the wall themes presented in
(e.g. Link with pink hair and turning into a bunny, The walrus guy saying I am the Walrus, etc.) These of course stand the test of time in being some of the best and most memorable Zelda games ever, in that they don't 'fit the mold' as it were, and don't even try to fit the confines of normalcy.
was this game; it starred a young link, suggesting that it was catering to younger audiences, and yet was one of the first to present a truly dark and mysterious and slightly cultish world, in this case named Termina. The game presents masks which are firstly a kiddish tradition of masking one's identity, and uses this to bring more adult themes into the game itself. Majora's Mask is weird, no doubt about it, and while I think it is slightly over hyped, it is definitely a favorite of many die hard Zelda fans
