I hear a lot of people saying it's bad but when I ask them if they ever got far in the game, they answer no.
I fell into this category for a long time. Perhaps a good analogy would be to a book; it's hard to say whether you like a book or not after reading the first few pages. Some start slow and get better others grap the reader's attention at the start but peter off into ennui.
My opinion is that it's a good game.

The game was successful, and this thread is about personal enjoyment of the game, not this vaguely defined "success." No one is hating on the game here but you, so it would be more apt to say, Look at all the people who don't hate the game. You are beating a dead horse.

Did that make sense to anyone else?

To be honest I just made a point to start this. You're the one that replied and continues to get angry about my statements towards the game. If anything you're the one beating a dead horse.

I'm angry? Good to know, I guess.
Also, you responded directly to me almost two weeks after I last set foot in the thread, and I am the one who replied and is beating the dead horse? That just doesn't make sense.

I think he was trying to imply that you were the one who was really beating the dead horse. Or maybe I'm completely wrong.
As for Zelda II, I'm still stuck at the Death Mountain maze. I got through the maze once and made it right in front of getting my nifty new item (it looked an awful lot like a hammer) when I got killed and had to restart back at the beginning. That's the farthest I've ever got, though. The game is without a doubt ruthless.

Death Mountain particularly. I had the same thing happen to me my first time through. Those red guys who throw clubs at you are relentless.

Time is irrelevant seeing as we're both doing the same thing; responding to each others comments, I just didnt happen to reply straight away. It was just strange to say that I was beating a dead horse when it is obviously the case that you are doing the same.

To beat the dead horse is to repeatedly try to force an issue, not to respond to someone repeatedly doing so. It's an idiom. I'm not angry with you. I was just saying that after two weeks, what's the point of bringing it up again? Your point isn't going anywhere. Not that you are necessarily wrong, but you've stated all there is to state.

I think that when a thread devolves into questions of who's beating a dead horse / who is angry / whose avatar will be a sideways video game sprite, it's time to either return to a productive avenue of discussion, or leave it alone completely.
That's me the mod, btw...not me the thread creator.
Thanks for your cooperation.

Finished both Zelda and Zelda II. I really feel that Zelda II is very under rated. At first I didn't like it. But by the second palace or so, I grew to love the side scrolling aspect of it. Would I ask for that to appear in another Zelda game? No. Did I enjoy it as a unique twist to the general Zelda formula? Yes. Overall I loved the game (especially the difficulty) and have decided it is in my top 5 Zelda games.

If you didnt respawn back all the way back at Hyrule castle next to Zelda after every ****ing game over this game would be marvelous. But, no. And it's beginning to scar me.
But people who say Death Mountain is ridiculous are just nitpicking. It only took me two tries (never got this far before), and it's quite simple: Just keep going down, right on the world map and you'll eventually reach the end. It's not a puzzle, more common sense, really.
Just for you.

Although a while ago now, this is the first time I cleared it, I thought it was okay on the game cube where I kept levelling up but getting no where. Then I thought I enjoyed it on the gba till I got stuck on the Thunder Bird. This time however my enjoyment came back and by waiting to place most of the magic gems I had enough lives and managed to figure out how to kill the Thunder Bird and I beat Dark Link the easy way because he crushed me when I tried fighting him by not cowering, which is kind of funny because normally to beat a Zelda a game you have to keep being brave and taking risks to win and the last boss you can cower from to finish. Still once you can clear it it's much better. Also I don't get this Death Mountain is hard, when I first played on my gba version I beat it in one go no lives lost and I use to get to the final palace with no lives lost, to bad my platforming skills are weakening, as other types of games grow easier.
