July 14, 2018
By Hick
One of my most memorable Zelda moments was fighting Gohma in Ocarina of Time. This was largely because it was the first 3D Zelda boss in the franchise. The whole beginning of Ocarina of Time was special for that reason. At that time in 1998, we had never seen anything...

July 8, 2018
By Sean Michael-Patrick Thompson
The Legend of Zelda has featured many unique and intriguing villains over the years. I love Vaati, Skull Kid, Chancellor Cole, and other villains from the series, but to me most games don’t feel quite as epic without the series’ iconic antagonist, Ganon. Since the first time I faced him in Ocarina of Time, his vicious visage has been...
