Re: Ever noticed how the 3D Zeldas can turn into horrors?

YEah your right, but I think that makes the games a bit better, cause I like light heartedness, but the mature type of setting and feeling of doom makes it a bit more fun for me. And as for WW, that game is pretty happy, there are a few parts. such as the earth temple with the redeads, and on that one day when it's all stromy and you go to windfall island and that other samll island thats destroyed. and the final fight with Ganon, but that's about it.

Re: Ever noticed how the 3D Zeldas can turn into horrors?

Yeah the Forest temple is definetly the scariest temple for me. Even though I'm sure the shadow temple is supposed to be the scariest. They are nothing to actual scary games like RE4, but yeah forest temple just creeps the **** out of me, hate the hand things that grab you.

Are you crazy? The Forest Temple is the best temple ever, in any game. The creepiest temple is the one with redeads.

Re: Ever noticed how the 3D Zeldas can turn into horrors?

I did notice that OOT and MM are sort of half horror but alot of the music in OOT is more sad like Kakariko village.

I agree except in Shadow temple. I Couldn't even do shadow temple. I had to get my cousin to do it. I did do it after that, but he was still there

Re: Ever noticed how the 3D Zeldas can turn into horrors?

Yes, a lot of Zelda is being weird and creeped out. So far the creepiest thing I've seen in a Zelda game is Nabooru's face behind the Iron Knuckle's face in Majora's mask on the Stone Tower challenge on the moon.

Sacry? You want sacry...go play yourself a game like Half-Life, or F.E.A.R., or Condemed...Zelda is hardly anything close too something that is defined as a horror game...The fact that the Zelda games all have a big "E" rating on them further proves my point.

Re: Ever noticed how the 3D Zeldas can turn into horrors?

Many years ago, when I was in the same boat with Ocarina of Time as we all are now with Twilight Princess, I read up on an interview with Shigeru Miyamoto, who claimed that OoT would have many "horror elements", that would be in comparison with the Resident Evil series.

Obviously, an exaggerated point. However, this aspect of Zelda games may be most apparent in Twilight Princess.

Personally, I'm not a fan of the horror genre, be it in video games or movies. But I make the odd exception. F.E.A.R. was a bland and mediocre shooter at best, it's horror was subtle at first but quickly became predictable. Half Life 2 had Ravenholm, and that was a perfect experience for me.

Re: Ever noticed how the 3D Zeldas can turn into horrors?

i dont know about all of you, but i quite like the spooky setting. nothing like killing ghost's and corpses. and besides. it's just not a legend of zelda game without a bit of horror know, is it? that's why it never got a three plus rating. and as for wall masters? if you cant handle one of those, then yes, you are a zelda n00b. keep running in a circle, and you'll notice just before they land, they stop following. then just have a stabbing party. now,if it was the invisible floor master in the spirit temple, maybe i'd understand a little. but ever then. simple to beat. couple of slashes, then take off the lens, finish it off, then charge a quick spin to deal with the smaller ones. voila! problem sorted.

I don't think that any Zelda game has horror in it...some Mario games have ghosts in them. Does that mean the game has "horror" in it? How can all of you classify all the things in 3D Zelda games as "horror"? The word horror means, "Intense and profound fear". Do you guys actually feel some fear when you play some Zelda games? I admit the Wallmaster sometimes "startle" me, but no Zelda game should be clasified as anything compared to the word "horror".

Did you read my last post? Horror means, "Intense and profound fear". Do you really have the same "horror" feeling from playing a Zelda game you get when you watch a scary movie like The Grudge, or The Ring...or whatever other horror films are out there? Like I said, I would classify any Zelda game as horror. Mabey the Zelda games try to get you the feeling that you should be more aware of you surroundings because mabey you see some skeletons, but no horror is involved in the games. You should not play a Zelda game and feel or expect horror, mabey dark surroundings that make you more aware of yourself...but not horror.

Re: Ever noticed how the 3D Zeldas can turn into horrors?

i think its mainly the 3d feature that makes a game scarier.. cuz in games like TMC, OoA and OoS and others, bad guys are flat, noting more than a picture, they cant show there expressions.. in 3d games its easier to do that
