Targeting preferences

My friends and I recently had a debate about this, so I thought I would see what the guys at ZU thought.
In the 3D Zeldas do you prefer hold, or switch Z/L targeting?
I personally like Hold, It makes me feel as if I have more control, plus having it on hold makes it difficult to fight multiple enemies.

Re: Targeting Preferences

Hold is the best way to go. I also thing there should be a poll about this.

Re: Targeting Preferences

really, it depends on the situation!
hold is good when theres a whole lot of enemies,
but i prefer switch, especially when fighting a boss or one tough enemy,
because i hate accidentally letting go of of the targeting button and losing track of what im fighting, especailly if im using arrows

Re: Targeting Preferences

Hold feels more "pro" while switch feels more newbie-friendly. I really don't like pressing Z more than I have to so I go with hold.

Re: Targeting Preferences

Hold is far better than Z Targeting! Pity it wasnt in Oot...

Re: Targeting Preferences

It is. In fact, a Gossip stone in fromt of King Zora's altar says something like "The true Zelda fans use the Hold-Targeting system."

Check your OOT Options/Settings.

You know that Z-targeting is Z-targeting regardless of your hold/switch settings ^_^

Re: Targeting Preferences

Hold. Many times I feel the need to quickly Z-target and go out of it. Like getting on the ground to shield+that stab thing. I try to use switch, but I just keep holding onto the Z button. I just can't use switch, it doesn't feel... natural.

Re: Targeting Preferences

Hold is so much easier. Switch was very difficult to manage, though it made "switching" targets slightly easier. But still, Hold works better for me.

Re: Targeting Preferences

I use hold, because holding the trigger down gives me a firmer grip on the controller (The last thing you want while fighting darknuts is to drop your controller :embrsd

Re: Targeting Preferences

I've always used Hold. I used Switch once, though, against Ganondorf, as my finger was getting tired by this point.

Re: Targeting Preferences

I personally like hold as well. I had my boyfriend switch it to switch on me once and that totally threw off my groove. Unfortunately, he found it funny, whilst I did not.

Re: Targeting Preferences

what kind of question is that? hold is much better! the first time i played i thoug the targeting system was stupid, especially when i targeted a stone after getting the sword, i targeted it, i pressed Z again and he targeted another stone, Z again and, surprise! he targeted another stone, then i find the options menu and i selected hold and it was perfect! (but i accidentally change the sound to mono)

Re: Targeting Preferences

I prefer SWITCH. I get tired of holding it down. I only change it to HOLD if things somehow get confusing.
