Topic: Zelda Gametimes

Posts 1 to 9 of 9


Just finished Tower of the gods on WWHD, which I believe is about 2/3 of the way through the game. Luckily, I haven't stopped to do much exploration and sidequests, so I'm hoping that'll take up quite a bit.

As much as I don't want Zelda to become like a Skyrim, I'd be lying if I said I wasn't envious of it's giant map and, apparently, hundreds of hours of sidequests.

As a kid, I remember me and my friends spending months on Lttp & LA. Obviously, being young has something to do with that, but the game being short can't help but take away from the epicness I love about Zelda (My favorite series)

Having played about half the games in the series, I'm just curious as to which one is the longest in the series?



I believe ALttP has the most dungeons in the series (at 10 or 11), but I'm not sure about overall gametime.

Well I have only played The Legend of Zelda, Zelda II, A Link to the Past, Link's Awakening and Ocarina of Time. I have never timed them but OoT felt the longest to me.

I THINK... Legend of Zelda: Twillight Princess is the longest. I THINK....

I own a Wii U and 3DS. I also own a PS4!

Skyward Sword took me forever, but I did take about a three or four month break in the middle of it when my son was born, so that may have had something to do with it.

For a blind run I would say Twilight Princess is the longest Zelda game to beat because the dungeons are pretty long, and there are tons of heart pieces to collect.

Out of the ones I've beat, Skyward Sword is the longest.

If you're asking about how long it took, then OoT. That took me 1 1/2 years to beat.

I've never actually compared my times (I've beaten a bit over half of them), but I'm pretty sure Twilight Princess and Skyward Sword are the longest.
