FPS Zelda?

Hi guys, i just had an idea, so here it goes! What if the next game was a first person shooter? Please tell me if you would approve, and how you thhink they would have to change some of the game elements. I myself wouldn't be crazy about it, but i would be willing to give it a try. Please post!

Meh. They already have an FPS Zelda. It's called "Link's Crossbow Training."

Re: FPS Zelda?

First Person Zelda

And what Dark Link said.
Spin-off FPS games might be okay, but let's keep the 'main' series how it is.

Re: FPS Zelda?

No, without comments. FPS are not about the story or puzzles, but about the action itself, Zelda was never like that and should not become like that either.

That is in no way an F(first)P(person)S(shooter). Sure, it might have a shooter feel but it is not first person. Plus it's more of an arcade/party game than anything.

Re: FPS Zelda?

FPS? I've only heard about Z/L.

Anyway, no thanks. I've never been fond of games where you can't see the character (completely) in the main gameplay.

True. But it's as closer to a shooter as you're going to get (especially with the Zelda series).

Re: FPS Zelda?

FPS Zelda?

Please fill out the survey:

Do you have a 360?

If yes, what % of games on the 360 that you own are shooters?

Have you played a Zelda game?

If yes, did you not notice the swords?

If yes, do you not realize the difference between sword play and gunfighting?

Finally, do you regularly or have you ever consumed any sort of inhalent, alcoholic beverage, or other such substance?

Basically what I'm saying is that this is so far from being a possibility, that to think otherwise, you'd have to be... of questionable stature in Zelda knowledgability. (which is a nice way of saying what I really wanted to say, but if I were to say what I wanted to say I'd probably recieve a warning/infraction so I held back. Happy mods?)

Re: FPS Zelda?

No way, I wouldn't like it at all. I don't think I'd even buy it.

Re: FPS Zelda?

a FPS Zelda game? Thats a terrible idea. Mostly because the only weapons you go into FP is Boomarang, hookshot, slingshot and the bow.

What would we do? get a whole new selection of bows to use?

Have you played Link's CT? Its a first person shooter, especially the Arbiters grounds Level.

Re: FPS Zelda?

How about a FPS/Action Adventure game where some spots are FPS style but the ahem "towns" are normal Zelda style with really crappy NPCs as usual and one minigame per town. But the towns will have more relistic artwork in them when you can go in the 2 houses to explore

What about magic in this FPS? You can cast differnt spells which do light to severe damage and maybe a line system where you can strike enemies in a line. then, everyone can get wiped out if they are in the right place at the right time so time your attacks carefully

As you progress through the game you will gain new spells and weapons. maybe weapons that can be combined with magic: Fire magic+ Boomerang equals Firerang which is surrounded by fire and goes flying at your baddies and buring anything flamable in your path. That will make innoventive weapons that's for sure.

Re: FPS Zelda?

How bout no!


If you think zelda would be better if it was an FPS then you are missing the whole point of the series. In that case you should just stop playing zelda alltogether becuase you will never understand its brilliance.
