If we looked at the most popular top 5 we would likely only see one (LttP) in there without it, two tops.

Rolling is love, rolling is life.

LttP is in the top 3 so AI is partially correct.

I've considered LttP to be my favorite video game for most of my life. Kind of curious how I'll react to it when I get to it again. I'm a decent way into Twilight Princess now, and I still have Phantom Hourglass, Spirit Tracks, and Skyward Swords as the games I've never gotten the chance to play much of. I also never finished Wind Waker, so that's on the "priority docket" per se. I'm just hoping I can find my copy of it soon enough. I think my old roommate might have it. As far as replays go, I'm still most looking forward to playing Link's Awakening again.

Twilight Princess has been a bit underwhelming so far, but it's been starting to pick up in momentum and enjoyment factor. I should hopefully have more time to play it in the coming weeks.

Why aren't the CD-i games on your list, Bomby? And what about Tingle's Rosy Rupeeland?

I'm sad to hear you're underwhelmed by TP; I recently re-played it, and despite having that same reaction on my first playthrough years ago, found I absolutely LOVE it now. Hope it warms up to you, because IMO there are some excellent, breathtaking atmospheric moments in that game. TP Lost Woods blows me away every time.

I'm actually considering putting the rest of Twilight Princess on temporary hold, then start all over again with the HD version if I decide to get a used Wii U. Not sure what the likelihood of that is at the moment.

Twilight Princess is a hard game to start, but once the ball gets rolling, things start getting really good imo.

Made my definitive decision to temporarily place Twilight Princess on hold. This is mostly because I've decided to get a used Wii U sometime within the next few months, so I'll be able to play the HD remake and not have to deal with the Wiimote controls. Of course, that means I'll have to start over from the beginning again... but worse things have happened. I guess since I'll actually know what I'm doing it will probably go by quickly enough.

Really, I just want to use that wolf amiibo so I can get the wolf assistant in Breath of the Wild.

Speaking of Wiimote controls, I started Skyward Sword this evening. I can see why a lot of people hated the control scheme for this one, but really the only thing I'm not liking so far in terms of controlling Link is flying the Loftbird. Everything else I pretty much got the hang of relatively quickly. It feels a lot more intentional than Twilight Princess's, which just kind of felt slapped on (which is why I wanted to get the GCN version back in the day, but never did).

This game has been a lot of fun from the get-go, even if it still has the obligatory long training period before the game actually gets started. This has always been my main problem with the 3D Zeldas. But yeah. Link & Zelda are adorable here, and I **** love the main leitmotif in the soundtrack. So we'll see where this one goes from here.

Edit: Wait. What the hell. It's "Zelda's Lullaby" in reverse. Whoooaaaaaaa... to think, it's an amazing melody both forwards and backwards...

Nice. I'm actually playing through Skyward Sword right now, too, and I'm thoroughly enjoying it. I plan on writing a full review when I'm done.

My personal favorite song in the game:

Though I personally really hated Skyward Sword, I'm glad that you're enjoying it Bomby!

I agree though the flying controls were pretty ech. Pretty uncomfortable.

Tip for flying/swimming controls: keep the Wiimote completely level, buttons-up, and that is straight. Tilt forward to go down, and tilt back to go up. When flying, you wanna gain as much altitude as you can by flapping upward, then fly downward at about a 45-degree angle.

Keeping the remote level as your base position is the biggest thing IMO. Once you get used to that, the rest is surprisingly intuitive.

Keeping the remote buttons-up is also the most effective way of playing the harp, when you get there.

^That's what I mean, tilting the Wii More forward at a 45 degree angle is such an uncomfortable sensation.

I mean, you don't have to tilt your wrist down 45 degrees, just the controller.
