Yeah, not "bad" in a traditional sense, but for a company that prides themselves on not releasing a game until it's ready, WW for me, was not ready. And the whole time I played it, I thought how little was actually done, and how much they just made the game long with "treasure hunting" in a HUGE open sea. I don't consider that great game design, but short cuts which I was charged full price for. So for me, that's about as "bad" as it gets. 

None of that bothers me.

 

GameCube was a weird time for them, as Super Mario Sunshine was also rushed and was an unmitigated disaster of a game. It controls poorly and is overly complicated as the next Mario game after Super Mario 64. A Hat in Time really shows what that style of 3D platformer could be if it was done well.

Yeah, this is my major issue with WW, and when I always see the famous Miyamoto quote, this game comes to mind(A delayed game is eventually good, but a rushed game is forever bad). While WW wasn't a terrible game, it was far from what it should have been, due to a rush to market.

This is where we disagree since I don't think it makes it a terrible game. While it could use more content, the core of it is far beyond almost every other Zelda game. Breath of the Wild is the only game that capitalizes on that core concept, but I wish it had the same style and setting of Wind Waker.

One of the interesting things about the Zelda series is how diverse the opinion is amongst the fans. Some love the 2D entries more, some the 3D. Like to me Ocarina of Time is one of my favorites, with Breath of the Wild topping it recently. Yet some think BotW was 'meh' or can only put a few hours into OoT before moving on.

My top three is Wind Waker, Breath of the Wild, and A Link Between Worlds. Don't like Ocarina of Time, Twilight Princess, or the two NES games. Link to the Past and the various GBC/GBA games are fine, but didn't grab me like the top three did.

 

The sense of exploration in Wind Waker is top notch and it's only flaw for me is that Nintendo decided to rush development before it was done because they needed more big games out on GameCube as fast as possible.

Does anyone have any recommendations for a media remote for PS4? I see two different ones at Gamestop and I don't know which is better.

This is the best one. The other PDP remote drains the batteries in a day while this one lasts for months.

Enjoying God of War so far, though I haven't had more than 30 minutes of time to play it at this point.
