What are some good /vr/ Zeldavanias? Starting with best one
>>
>>3849670
Stop making up terms.
>>
>>3849670
>Zeldavania
Oh shit, this bullshit hurts my head.
I think I read about it somewhere where a fucking hipster was bashing on "metroidvania" saying hurrr it should be zeldavania, what does not make any sense.

Metroidvania is always a 2D platformer with a specific item/exploration system, why the fuck would you add a top down 2D game like Zelda to the mix, it has some elements of it, but metroidvania is literary a subclass of 2d platformers, far from Zelda.

Heck, just call it a zelda clone, still better definition.
>>

>I think I read about it somewhere where a fucking hipster

I think that was actually Koji Igarashi himself.
He said that he actually was more inspired by Zelda, and not Metroid, when making SOTN.
>>
I'm gonna use this bait thread to remind you all that Metroidvania is a bullshit term because Metroid completely standardized the formula by itself and Castlevania deserves none of the credit.

sotn incorporated rpg mechanics like money and exp grinding. it contributed to what we know as a metroidvania, it just so happens that everything it added was the shitty part. all of the genre's redeeming features are from metroid.

So Zeldavania II: The Adventure of Link is a metroidvania
>>
>>3851287
It's a metroidzeldia because you have to obtain items to access new areas. If it was a weeb anime game then it would earn the castle- prefix (or suffix).

as we've previously established in this thread, that game is a primitive zeltroid
>>
>>3849818
IGA saying he was thinking of Zelda doesn't makes SotN's system more like Zelda. it obviously is much more similar to Metroid.

Calling it "Zeldavania" would be misleading considering that Zelda is much more well-known for its top-down view than for being a sidescroller. "Metroidvania" describes exactly what to expect from the game being discussed.
>>
>>3851662
But I never see any metroids or veins in these games.
>>
>>3851662
As we've already determined, SotN and "Simon's Quest" (muh AVGN) are rinkunobokenvanias.

Yeah, but the money and exp grinding in SOTN were shit. And those are not fundamental tenets of this subgenre of video game.

It should just be called "metroidlike"

If you can't figure that out, you have no hope of figuring out the rest of the game anyway, so it's a bit far-fetched to think you have the skills to beat it.
Additionally, how many empty(TRULY empty) rooms were there in towns that didn't provide something? Just because you had to work a little harder for one piece of a clue doesn't mean it was the game's fault. Zelda 2 has a lot of problems, but that's not one.

You have nothing to gloat about, if you're a Eurocuck.

If you're a chink I'd understand but as a palfag you are stuck with a garbage piece of shit 50hz version.

I picked up a reproduction running at 60hz for $35 USD, and it's infinitely better than the piece of shit localized version you faggots got. I'm so glad I was not born in europe because y'all had to live with 576/50i. Your standards are garbage.
