As E3 approaches, we’re hopefully just a couple of weeks away from a deep dive into what is hopefully the next major installment in the The Legend of Zelda series – the sequel to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. With a pending sequel to one of the greatest games ever made and the franchise’s 35th anniversary landing in 2021, fans all over the world are celebrating the series with replays, first-time playthroughs, and much more. It is thus the perfect time to ask: what is your favorite The Legend of Zelda game?
For me, it’s Wind Waker. That’s because Wind Waker is one of the greatest things to ever happen to the entire medium. Games like Majora’s Mask and Breath of the Wild aren’t too far behind, but Wind Waker manages to put it all together in a way that few Zelda titles and few video games in general can muster. The music, the incredible dungeons, the touching story, the sense of adventure in taking on the open sea, and the beautiful cel-shading all make Wind Waker a classic.
