Cowboy Link > PJ sunbather Link
Really really really cool graphics > cool graphics
Horse > boat
Boar > boat
Wolf > boat
Sinister looking dark gremlin thing > talking boat
Real mount combat > shooting arrows from boat
Dragons > postmen
Balrog > globs of ooze
Goma (giant spider) > lame shark things
Ravaging things as wolf > blowing things with giant leaf
Can swim under water > can't swim under water
Ghosts > no ghosts
Big army > no army
Big scary castle > cool but irritating dodge the spotlight fortress
Boomerang actually useful > Boomerang that is ass
Mysterious > uh, not mysterious
Scary > not scary

Dark, grim fairy tale > jolly sailing

Did I mention it looks stunning, you can ride a horse and a giant boar, you can fight while riding, you can turn into a wolf, it looks scary, big enemies and a weird sinister looking gremlin thing? And hot Zelda.


Feel free to continue.

I'm 14, and I completely agree with you! I went into Blockbusters and saw an Xbox running Turok. It looked crap. I'd rather have my GC and a collection of good games. F-Zero kicks WipeOut and Gran Turismo's asses, Metroid Prime rules and Twilight Princess will pull a beautiful spin-attack and slice off the Xbox and PS2's heads. Theoretically, that is...

Who, in their right mind, goes onto a Nintendo forum and says things like that! Go away, lest your foul stench pollute our fair forum. Please.

Well thanks for that explanation, its the only one I've got but it makes sense to me. Link truly is a hero of time. Super Smash Bros. threw some people off because of the mere fact that Link was the original character and then you unlocked young link. I guees they expected a Link and a "grown-up Link" or something like that.

Different people all "linked" (ya see what I did there?). I think Miyamoto said Link/Zelda are re-incarnated whenever the world needs them.

I'm confused as to who Link really is. One day he's the hero of time then he's a kid living on an island, nowhere near a forest.

There is no 'real link'.

And the Xbox wouldn't be able to produce graphics significantly better than TW.

I worry for the youth of today.
