Does the greatness of Ocarina of Time need to be explained? In some ways, it does. It is often argued by many that the best game in the Zelda series is the game you played as a child old enough to understand what is happening. It may not be your first Zelda game, but it's the first one that really made sense to you. That isn't true for me and it may not be true to you, but many arguments for which Zelda game is the best boils down to often include growing up with a certain game. Thus, Skyward Sword and A Link Between Worlds...

CryZENx has done it again, bringing Zelda to life in Unreal Engine 4. He uses the prebuilt Kite world for Deku Link to play around in, otherwise all the other work is his own... outside of the sound effects and the background music. He does a fine job syncing Deku Link's animation with the sound affects for a really fluid demo...

Sometimes fans do some really strange things that are oddly entertaining when they shouldn't be. Such is the case for Matt Lees, known as "Kitchen Matt". He released a video showing folks how to grind coffee by hand. Grinding coffee is not a particularly hard thing to do and you probably don't need to be shown how to do it - you just turn a crank over and over again. You know who else turns a crank over and over? The Windmill Man (he technically has no name in Ocarina of Time). He cranks out the Song of Storms over and over...

When you purchase a new Zelda game, you can usually be guaranteed a few things. You will be flicking switches and pushing boxes, finding keys in treasure chests, and gathering items to complete dungeons and fight bosses. There will be grass to cut and pots to break. Link, a fair-haired lad clad in green, will be the main hero; Zelda a princess in distress; and some villain, 90% chance it's Ganondorf, the one behind the trouble. We have questioned the longevity of Zelda conventions in Daily Debates before, and this time, we're going to consider the Link / Ganondorf / Zelda triad...

Did you know the original Legend of Zelda game's dungeon maps can be arranged to spell out the name Zelda? I didn't until I watched this informative video Alltime Numbers released covering The Legend of Zelda in numbers. This clever video includes tidbits of information, such as how many copies the series has sold, to the phone number Americans could call back in the day if they got stuck in the first Zelda game...

Note: Last week's poll (found here) will remain active until this Tuesday, 8/4.

Welcome to back to another entry of our weekly poll series: ZI Votes! Those of you who are new to this feature need not worry; this is an extremely simple feature to get involved in. Each week, we present the community here at Zelda Informer with a question for the week, most often related to some sort of controversial issue regarding The Legend of Zelda. At the end of the week...

Custom, modified consoles can range from weird to spectacular, and amongst all the wild creations you're bound to find a gem like this Zelda-themed N64 crafted by SpaceNTraders over at Etsy. Painted with a slick gold and silver color scheme, the custom console sports a solid...

We don't talk about Smash Bros. around these parts very often, though that may be changing as we get our official Zelda Informer Smash Tournament off the ground (more on that later). Still, it's hard to ignore the absolutely hilarious video created by SoKrispyMedia. The concept is simple enough - take Super Smash Bros. and make it first person through a virtual reality headset. The main person in the video puts on the headset and becomes Mario battling against a real life (well, virtual reality real) version of Link...

We know Zelda U is going to be open world and feature horseback travel, but should that be the only way we travel such a vast land? Setting aside warp points, something the series features prominently, we're focusing strictly on modes of transportation versus instant transportation. So, Epona, Loftwings, Trains, etc. I personally would love to see all the various methods used up to this point in the same game. So traveling by air, sea, ground, and even faster ground (trains)...

YouTuber versus put together a new parody song and video of the popular Starships song by Nicki Minaj. They based this parody on The Wind Waker, telling Link's tale in a pretty funny and unique way. As a warning, there is some suggestive material in the song and some cussing, but considering the song it is a parody of.. that shouldn't surprise anyone. Still, it's a pretty clever and overall funny take on a popular song from a few years back dealing with our favorite hero clad in green...
