So I decided to enter these forums after a very long break to see what is going on with the community, only to find the OP stating this:

"Although its community died out rather quick, not as talked about around as much as other games. i remember the attacks on the internet for the Twilight Princess reviews all over the place being below 9.0"

and then this:

[QUOTE="Shinobishyguy"][QUOTE="15strong"] They aren't expanding the formula. they are adding things that have nothing to do with the formula to fill gameplay gaps (like Sonic Unleashed.)Dj-Dampleaf
Not a valid comparison at all. Sonic had been stinking since it hit 3D, and they kept doing new gimmicks because they had no idea what to do, mainly cribbed from other games. For example, Sonic 06 ripped from Half-Life 2's use of the Havok physics engine, and Unleashed tried to cash in on the God of War mania. Zelda not so much. The main problem with Skyward Sword was that it had a reduced focus on exploration and questing (apart from fetch-quests) while the previous games had big over worlds to explore. Apart from that, the game has top-notch dungeon design.

Why do people keep talking about SS?

Oh the irony. Unfortunetely OP, your views on the matter is very limited towards what this website thinks. The rating it got here does not, in any sense, reflect what people actually thought of it in the outside world. The overall reception towards the title, both critically and commercially, is along the lines of the series. It doesn't indicate a downward slope at all. Unless of course if you'd like to include the handheld games, but then again those are completely different beasts. There are far more important details about the current situation regarding the Zelda franchise, you covered none of them. Instead, we are greeted with a pseudo-concerned attitude that puts the discussion on any side but yours in a damned if you do/ damned if you don't situation (as proven in the quotes above) I suppose it was quite foolish of me to expect an actual discussion here in System Wars. Next time I will keep my expectations in check.

Funny.. Nintendo is the only company that didn't have a home console revision in the 3D era yet it's the one who's "half assing" it....

Read my sig...Mario always get a free pass bcoz of nostilgiaCode_Blue_
Prove it, because otherwise this is just some excuse to escape an argument. If anything, OP, Nintendo gets far more hate than usual. Proof? Uncharted games this generation: 3 Zelda games this generation: 3. Yet you are calling out Nintendo only here.

People who think it's purely on nostalgia are fooling themselves. People who think it's the same game over and over are also fooling themselves. It's held on high regards because it's a fantastic franchise. If anything I could argue that Skyrim has as much of a nostalgia factor as Zelda, but god forbid someone actually going there.

[QUOTE="Haiyama"]

Gamespot gave Twilight Princess an 8.8/10. I could see Skyward Sword getting an 8.5/10 here.

gamer620
And Edge gave it a 9/10, so going by your logic, seeing as Edge gave SS a 10, Gamespot should give it at least a 9.5.

an 8.8 is closer to a 9 than an 8. Going by his logic, if TP scored a 9 by the new GS standards then SS should score...

Its getting a 10 here also.TheGuardian03
Am I the only one who hopes this gets an 8.8 over a 10 here in GS? Just imagine the confusion and explosion of this place. [spoiler] I know it's impossible but don't tell me that won't be amazing [/spoiler]
