Wind Waker and Twilight Princess are two of the highest-rated video games of all time, and many Zelda fans consider one or the other to be the best game in the series. In their excellent Game VS Game video series, Commonwealth Realm attempts to decide, once and for all, which is the better game!
Commonwealth Realm starts the battle with a brief overview of each game’s history, including fan reaction, Metacritic ratings, and the release of their HD remakes. They then lay out the seven criteria they will be judging the games on: story/main quest, side quests, game world, dungeons, bosses, gameplay, and soundtrack. Commonwealth Realm gives a detailed analysis of each of these elements for both games, then decides which one “wins” the category. Once all categories have been examined, the game that won the most categories is declared the better game.
This comparison is very subjective, and Zelda fans may not agree with who Commonwealth Realm declares the winner of each category. I know I personally disagreed with which game they chose had the better game world and gameplay, along with who they declared the final winner. But Commonwealth Realm’s arguments are very well-presented, and debating fan opinions is half the fun of Zelda!
