I think I'm going to replay Zelda 2 actually... I always had a feeling that game was super underrated but I was super young when I played it and never got a good understanding of it.
I feel like they really were driving home the epic feel of Zelda in that game... consequently it's one of the least kind of cheeky and silly ones not that it doesn't have it's own appeal.
Anyway, you don't have to worry about this being a push to make Zelda the RPG that makes all other RPGs irrelevant and therefore Nintendo best everything I like Legend of Dragoon as much as the next person. There's no denying the impact that Zelda has had on a multiplicity of genres, though, and am personally rather glad RPGFan covers it.
Oh and thanks to Dice for allowing a path across the usual WW/MM worship (even though I'm sure most of us like WW just fine) to permit a path into the heart of darkness that is TP and the others =-P
I don't know, having a spell that turns you into a Fairy, a sleeping blob that you have to talk to multiple times to wake up for information, or some of the spell required items literally being a few paces away like fetching some water out of a fountain or finding a Mirror under a table. And that's not even getting into whatever goes down in those Healing/Magic Restoring Houses or gems like "I AM ERROR.".
