Top 10 Legend of Zelda games of All-Time

Published

on

We are a little late to the party here, but with Mario’s 35th anniversary finally coming to an end this month, it is now time to give some focus to Zelda and the little guy in the green hat – Without further ado…Here are the top 10 Legend of Zelda games of all-time.

10. The Legend Of Zelda:

Sometimes you just have to give credit to the OG. The first in the series debuted in 1986 on the NES. No one knew what impact this game would have for the future of gaming, but with the debut of Zelda, Link and Ganon – Well you just have to give respect here. It started the tale of one of the most iconic games in gaming history, and despite it’s dated graphics and gameplay, there is some beauty and fun in playing the original game in the longstanding series.

9. Skyward Sword:

I know I may catch some flak for this one, but hear me out. This title in the series did not truly move the series forward. The story was a bit bare bones, but even worse than any of that – was the use of the motion controls on the Wii system. Playing this game was a chore and the controls made the game not very responsive. Nintendo releasing a new HD version on the Switch, will look to right their wrongs, and with improved controls this game could move up on the list. You may not like it, but you agree.

 

8. Links Awakening (GB Edition):

This game could truly be described as one of the most mesmerizing or puzzling games in the series. Here we see Link partake on a voyage unlike any seen in the series. This was no run of the mill save the princess story. Here we saw Link collecting musical instruments to wake a sleeping Fish to get off a strange island. Part Mario – Part Zelda, this title was unlike any seen before and was a fascinating and thrilling ride for the series in it’s portable debut on the GameBoy.

7. Twilight Princess:

This game which was originally released on the GameCube and Wii system’s in one that is of the darker tales of Link and Zelda. This title is basically the “My Chemical Romance” of the Zelda series. Yes the emo equivalent. This game brought a different style and formula to the Zelda series and saw half the game played as the green capped crusader vs another half playing as the cursed wolf. It was an interesting format that has divided fans of the series for years. Deciding where to put it in lists is rather confusing. Here at seven I think is a good spot for the controversial title.

6. A Link Between Worlds:

I wrestled like Stone Cold Steve Austin vs The Rock with where to put this entry. The 3ds exclusive saw the return of Link and Zelda to a portable system in very impressive fashion. The sequel to the SNES classic “A Link to the Past”, did a fine job of not only recreating that world, but in many ways improving upon it. This game pushed the boundaries of what a Zelda title can accomplish in a portable world and gave us one of the most impressive titles to date.

5. Majora’s Mask:

We are now in the elusive top five territory. Here we see the finale of Link and Zelda on the Nintendo 64. Since the game was released near the end of the system’s life cycle, it may have not gotten the love it deserved back in 2000. The game was released right after one of the all-time greats in “Ocarina of Time”, and told a tale that remains in Zelda folklore as being one of the most heartbreaking. The game delves into a story told in a way that differentiates it from the rest of the Zelda series, and could be one of it’s finest.

4. The Wind Waker:

This title really separates itself from the rest of the series. Escaping Hyrule, this cel-shading adventure shows Link traveling by boat in what one could describe as the ‘Pirate’ game of the series. An adventure that hopefully we get to see re-released sometime on the Nintendo Switch, it’s graphics make the game timeless and never outdated and tales a tale more swashbuckling than any game seen in the series.

3. A Link to the Past:

What is there to say that has already not been said about this game. Released in 1992 (at least in North America), the game is still considered by many to be one of the finest in the series. There is something just so darn astounding about this title, and will remain in Zelda folklore forever as the first title that really moved the series forward.

2. Ocarina of Time:

Wherever you want to put this title is up to you. Honestly if someone told me it should be number one; Well I would not disagree. This title really set the bar for the series and delivered such an impact, that it was one of the titles that truly helped sell the Nintendo 64 system. The storytelling, graphics and gameplay really set a standard for the series. No matter where you put this game, it’s almost video game blasphemy to not call it a pure classic.

1. Breath of The Wild:

What has been said about this title that has not already been said? This title released in 2017 for both the Wii U and Nintendo Switch – is gaming at it’s best. The first open world Zelda game is also it’s finest. the amount of activities you can accomplish here, with the introduction of shrines and a wonderfully woven story make this game a delight for newcomers and veterans to the series. Now Nintendo give us the sequel!

“Five thousand years ago, Kahndaq was a melting pot of cultures, wealth, power, and magic. Yet, most of us have nothing, except for the chains around our necks. Kahndaq needed a hero, instead, they got me. I did what needed to be done and they imprisoned me for it. Now, five thousand years later, I’m free and I give you my word… No one will ever stop me again.”

Gotham Knights Court of Owls Story Trailer and Behind-the-Scenes Featurette

Published

on

During DC FanDome last year Warner Bros. Games Montréal revealed their newest title at the Hall of Heroes which was Gotham Knights. Now returning to DC FanDome once again due to a delayed release and now releasing in 2022, they reveal a thrilling new story trailer which focuses on one of my favourite Gotham Criminal organisations, The Court of Owls.



The story trailer for the upcoming open-world, third-person action RPG features the game’s main antagonist, the fabled Court of Owls, a secret society made up of Gotham City’s wealthiest families. The trailer also introduces Oswald Cobblepot (also known as The Penguin), the infamous DC Super-Villain who seemingly knows important details about this omnipresent silent predator and the threat it poses to Gotham and its new guard of DC Super Heroes – Batgirl, Nightwing, Red Hood and Robin.

Also as an extra treat to those who tuned into their presentation we got to see a behind-the-scenes featurette for Gotham Knights, with commentary from Jim Lee (Comic Book Artist, Publisher & Chief Creative Officer at DC), Scott Snyder (Writer & Co-Creator of “The Court of Owls”), Greg Capullo (Comic Book Artist & Co-Creator of “The Court of Owls”), Patrick Redding (Gotham Knights Creative Director, Warner Bros. Games Montréal) and Ann Lemay (Gotham Knights Narrative Director, Warner Bros. Games Montréal), who all expand on the Courts of Owls origins, lore and inspiration in bringing this elusive enemy to the interactive world of Gotham Knights.

Gotham Knights allows players to step into the roles of Batgirl, Nightwing, Red Hood and Robin, a new guard of trained DC Super Heroes who must rise up as the protectors of Gotham City in the wake of Batman’s death. The game will be playable either solo or as a two-player, online cooperative experience.
