There needs to be a game starring Zelda.
Tetra was an interesting incarnation of Zelda, and it was cool that she fought in the final battle alongside Link, instead of the more common No-You’re-A-Damsel-Go-Hide dynamic. (See every female character ever in Kingdom Hearts 2)
And it was cool that in Skyward Sword Zelda took a more active role in the story and was actually going through the dungeons just like Link was, but I wish we could have seen that more rather than a few clips during the credits. And in all honesty there’s a 100% chance I would have rather played as her and Impa than Link and Fi.
Let’s be serious,
Impa > Fi, Navi, Tatl, Linebeck, and Ezlo combined
It was great that she fought beside you in Spirit Tracks, and that she gets into the core of the gameplay. Although l felt kind of eh that she had to possess a suit of armor in order to fight.
So Zelda isn’t exactly out of the picture, I mean she does stuff. I just wish it could focus on her doing stuff and the game would be about her journey. I think that has the potential to breathe life into a series that runs the risk of being sorely repetitive. I mean it’s not untrue that if you play one, you get a pretty good idea of the gameplay of most of the rest in the series. (enter dungeon> encounter puzzles > get thing > thing helps solves puzzles > use thing to defeat boss > repeat)
Can’t Zelda just once be reincarnated as the hero/warrior, while Link helps from the sidelines?
