As you can tell by my sig, I'm currently playing through Wind Waker. I absolutely LOVE the toon style (a major reason why I also got Phantom Hourglass and Spirit Tracks), but am not too keen on a more dark/realistic Zelda. As a result, I have only very lightly played Majora's Mask and Twilight Princess is near the bottom of my "To Get . . . eventually" list. Of course, with the upcoming price drop, that may change. I like The Legend of Zelda as it should be; a fictional, non-realistic adventure. I can't wait to replay the retro Zeldas after Wind Waker!

Originally when I saw WW's graphics, I was disappointed. The tech demo they showed at the E3 reveal of Gamecube back in the day was what I was hoping for. That looked awesome, and the toon stuff looked too cutesy.

Now I don't mind, and I think the style has held up well for gamecube (I guess that was Nintendo's tropical island phase?). I love the toon link style on the DS. It really makes use of the limited hardware/graphics quite well.

I like TP/OoT's styles as well, but tbh WW will hold up better than TP, because it DOESN'T try to be realistic. That doesn't mean I won't always enjoy it.

I am way too lazy to think of something clever.

Hey now, let's take it down a couple notches. Let's just agree that everybody's wrong--THIS is the definitive Link character design.

My girlfriend and I prefer the Toon Link design actually, it allows for light-hearted humor in the game world that isn't available in more realistic-leaning Zelda games. Then again, we also like Tingle games...

Wind Waker is the only Zelda console game I have never played. I refused to play something that looks like South Park. It may have very well been the best story of any Zelda game but I just cant get pass the graphics. I hope that some day they do redo WW but use the graphics like they did in OoT or TP not South Park graphics.

...You, of course, are talking about Paper Mario in it's paper-cutout style, right?

I feel like I'm in the middle of that old classic, Green Eggs and Ham.

Lol, Wind Waker looks like South Park? Since when?

I disagree. I don't think it's like that at all. Let's fight about it.

I actually like the Toon Link design better than the normal one

I'd actually like to see more Legend of Zelda games with the Toon Link design

Wow so many people hating on Wind Waker for it's cartoony graphics?
Then there's all the Twilight bashers who don't like the darker tone of that game. Mind telling us what you do like?
I suppose Link to the past and Ocarina are the only ones everybody can agree on?
Sometimes I think I'm the only one in the world who likes them all.
