No other video game series has touched my soul or inspired me more than The Legend of Zelda has. For both myself and many others I'm sure, this is the case. In terms of Zelda games that really are the full package combining innovative gameplay, lovely fantasy art styles, and powerful musical scores with impactful storytelling, the 3D entries come to mind. For many, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild may be the new gold standard in those departments. But for me, The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword still reigns supreme in all categories.
I'm willing to bet that's not going to be a popular opinion for a lot of people. So whether you are curious to see what my reasoning is or would rather comment about what an idiot I must be, jump into the full article and do whatever you please. By the grace of Hylia, I just ask you hear me—and this rare perspective—out.
