In the fifth installment of “Video Games I’m Thankful For”, we delve into a game that was released both on the Nintendo Gamecube and Wii. This game received critical acclaim by numerous reviewers, and gave me a new appreciation for the game’s series. Let’s see what it is:
This game was visually stunning. I remember getting my copy of Nintendo Power, where a large poster and scores of images were featured from the game. From that moment, I knew this would be the game that continued my fascination with the Legend of Zelda series.
I know it’s hard to believe, but I didn’t quite like the series the first time I saw it. It seemed way too in-depth and unfocused, and that just seemed like a hassle to my younger self. If only I could slap my younger self…
Regardless of what I previously thought, The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess brought the series back into the limelight for me. The darker, more intense feel of the game kept me in a state of awe. Couple that with the depth and meaningful storyline, multi-world concept, and slew of wonderful characters, it’s very hard not to appreciate the game and all that it has to offer.
With this game, I went back to play all the great Legend of Zelda games, which I am very happy I did.
What games are you thankful for? What games have a special spot in your heart?
Come back tomorrow for the next game of the series!
