I just don't see why people prefer the original.

It's the excessive bloom. It kills the game's cartoon feel and makes all 3D models look like they're made out of clay. One of the things I loved about the original's style was the high contrast.

I can get behind complaining about bloom on Elder Scrolls Oblivion, because that was bad, but Wind Waker? fo' real?

I insist: It would have looked tons better if it wasn't so excessive. Just look at the picture in the begging of the page and tell me it's not better.

The aliasing is bad in the Dolphin image in my opinion it looks much worse, you can see the jaggedness in the lines. Bloom is soft light which objectively makes things more attractive, that's why they use bloom like effects and soft light filters in other games and movies to make people and characters look better.

Bloom... Deal with it.

The dolphin emulator looks like fecal matter compared to the more superior WiiU remaster

@Norik it just doesn't seem like you have actually played WW HD on Wii U. I think your opinion would be a lot different.

I don't think people should buy a Wii U if they don't like the way WWHD looks considering so many of them have a similar bloom and haze.

I don't have an issue with any of those games, I'm just bothered by how different WW looks in particular. They tried to fix something that wasn't broken. MK looks like it needs some AA though...

Whatever, I know I'll end up buying it anyways lol

I'm not sure if this has been asked aleady, but I want ask this.
When you go to Windfall island when Mila and her dad are poor, Mila has a job at the flag stall. The side quest with this is to catch Mila in the act of tampering with the safe during the night hours.
After completing this, during daylight hours Mila says she has an evening job on another island, and her dad says says Mila sneaks out at night.
I would asume this is a hint at another side quest involving Mila, but I just can't find her. I've also looked around on places like youtube and googled for answers, yet I can't find anything or anybody that knows where Mila works during the night hours.
Basicly, has anybody found Mila working the night, or is it something we're never ment to find out?

I just beat The Wind Waker for the first time ever today. I had it on GCN when I was younger but never got around to beating it and I decided to get WW HD and I have loved it.
Now I have a question. Is Phantom Hourglass supposed to be a direct sequel to The Wind Waker and Spirit Tracks, Hourglass's direct sequel?
Or are they all seperate Links?

Phantom Hourglass is a sequel to Wind Waker and Spirit Tracks happens years after the other 2 games.

Just beat the game today, thought it was amazing. Never played Wind Waker before, think it's actually turned out to be my favourite Zelda ever. Even more so than Link to the Past and Ocarina of Time.

I really felt they gave Ganondorf a lot of character development in this one as well. Made him seem more human, and almost a tragic villain to some extent.

I've gone mad on Zelda since playing this though, got Skyward Sword on the way, Link between Worlds Collectors Edition pre-ordered and even brought the Hyrule Hystoria to read. It's such a great series of games.

I really wonder why there was so much negativity to Wind Waker when it first came out, if it was to due with the visuals I can't imagine why. I love them.

I have to assume people were more interested in a more realistic style instead. Of course once we consistently got video games that actually tried to be realistic, many people realized "OH GOD WHAT HAVE WE DONE?!". I assume

As any other male-dominant medium, the mainstream gaming community is full of idiots who need everything to be dark and gritty and dull so they can feel better about themselves by looking "masculine" and "mature." Just look at how ridiculously popular games like CoD and GTA are among prepubescent boys. This was especially true ten years ago, when Nintendo games had built themselves a reputation of being "kiddie games" among these circles with the Nintendo 64, a stigma still present to this day in middle schools everywhere.

Thankfully the growing popularity of things like MLP among adult male circles is helping, so we might outgrow this stupid trend by the time these people have children.

EDIT: I'd also like to add that there's a social stigma attached to games in general, with people looking down upon gamers as manchildren. So these people think making all games look like something out of a Michael Bay movie will make them look better to non-gamers (LOL).

Pretty much. Also you can blame this:

People thought they were being promised Twilight Princess. What they got was Wind Waker.

Following Ocarina and Majora's Mask people wanted the more realistic style that was used in those games. I remember very clearly that being the major complaint about Wind Waker aside from the sailing. The need for a more realistic style is what prompted Twilight Princess to go as grim dark as it was. Personally I feel like Skyward Sword was the perfect blend between the two.

Haven't picked WW HD yet, but I probably will before the end of the month. I never played through the entire thing originally because I got sidetracked. Looking forward to dusting the Wii U off and exploring the seas in gorgeous HD.
