Most people hold Zelda games in high regard. I'm one of them. Now I'd never claim to have played them all, that would be a lie. But I keep an eye on them and play one from time to time. All the way back to the original on the NES, I always thought they were charming and enjoyable games.
With that said, I was wondering what the general consencus is on Hyrule, Zelda, and the Link experience?
The experience is always set in a Fantasy realm. And that's fine really. it works well enough with the gameplay and story of LoZ. There's a reason it's earned so much accolade over the years.
But if they did something radically different, would you still be interested? Would you play a Sci-Fi themed LoZ? Or one where Link is a robot lost in a robot planet named H-iRul3? Does it need to be a fantasy setting for this to work?
I'll keep playing Zelda games if all they ever are is more of the same. I like what they are. But there's part of me who'd love to see the series take the same formula, and put it in different settings. Let me find the Holo-shot or the Master Laser Sword for a change perhaps.
And if they did shake up the setting, what would you like to see? Link made of stone in a Crystal version of Hyrule? Robot Link (Uplink?)? Or is it insane to even suggest such a thing? I'm interested in any responses. Thanks. :)
