[Game] The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess

The Legend of Zelda - Twilight Princess


I tend to play and enjoy games and other media from pretty much every genre imaginable, but there are still some works that completely baffle me.

Maybe it’s because I’ve owned Sega Genesis instead of Super Nintendo growing up and played Zelda for the first time when I was in my twenties, but I could never, for the love of me, understand the appeal of this series.

Incoherent narrative barely holds the adventure together, the setting is all over the place and makes no sense whatsoever, and, besides a couple of good puzzles and boss fights, the games are simply tedious to play.

I probably enjoyed Twilight Princess more than the older Zelda games simply due to better graphics, but otherwise, it’s the same kind of rehash of the same thing with a different skin like the rest. My first Zelda game, Skyward Sword, stands as the only one I managed to finish, and I enjoyed it mainly because of the motion controls. …And I suppose it was the only one where I felt that I wasn’t playing a game I’d already beat.

Cool, mysterious atmosphere
Incoherent story
Good dungeon design
No characters to speak of
Good boss fights
Everything other than dungeons is super tedious
Feels the same as all the other games in the series
