I find that this is a brilliant thing to have! (ie not to have) - why?/
for a start the lack of magic makes Link a more 'real' hero - using things like Din's fire and the other spells in OOT and in other games looked unreal and stupid, even for a fantasy game - i like the idea of Links only weapons being the sword clawshot and the Bow
so would you like to see the magic bar back in the next console Zelda??
its one of the things that makes TP so special for me/ SORRY FOR THE MISPRINT IN THREAD TITLE
Most fantasy does have magic in it...it doesn't have to be spells...it can be faeries, different races, powerful swords, etc. So you really can't say its unreal even for a fantasy game 'cuz its not unreal. Zelda is still a fantasy game even without the magic bar, it has the faeries and such that I mentioned.
Personally I would like to see the magic bar back. It doesn't feel right (to me) to use weapons that don't take away from a bar...well...not all the weapons should.
I would like to see that bar again...... I just like it....... and I agree with the thing about the Magic Armor, it should absorb energy from a magic bar and not take rupees..... so why it is called Magic Armor??? :XD
I just wish that WW didn't have magic as well. Or at least not have the deku leaf use magic.
Seriously, the deku leaf was the biggest piece of crap item I've ever see. Its bad enough that I have to deal with wind and gravity, but now I have to balance a magic meter. A hanglider doesn't need magic to work dous it?
