Anger at NintendoI read all the synopses of the Zelda games that I had never played on Wikipedia last night and found them to be a helpful reminder of why I don't play the handheld Zelda games. First off, it's not the experience I know and love when it's a 2D game or I have to play it with a D/Touch pad. Secondly, they make them too often (once or twice a year) and I don't think enough effort goes into them. Thirdly, the plot of The Minish Cap defies the plot of Four Swords Adventures!At the beginning of Four Swords, Link is tricked into removing the Four Sword from its pedestal, thereby releasing Vaati, the evil spirit housed within it. At the end of Four Swords, Link reseals Vaati and Ganon in the same sword. In Minish Cap, Link pulls the sword out again (this is the third time that he does this and I don't even know why he puts the thing back in the pedestal), but it's no big deal and Ganon just stays put like a good, little king of darkness. Lastly, Spirit Tracks just strikes me as a poor prospect for a Zelda game. I don't know who thought that it would be a good idea to base a Zelda game around train tracks! I still love the console games, but I now know why I've instinctually stay away from the handhelds. If you'd like to see an idea of how ridiculous the Zelda timeline gets when you include the handhelds, watch this funny but poorly acted fan film.
