Vote on the look of the new Zelda GCN game at nintendo.com

http://www.nintendo.com/games/gamepa...jsp?gameId=823

So far it's over 70% for the more realistic fantasy look, over 20% for who cares give me zelda, and over 8% for Celda.

I voted "Who cares?" The graphics are secondary to the gameplay for me, and both styles have their own merits.

Same here; I don't care as long as they release it soon. I may even prefer Celda, because it could lead to innovations in gameplay. We could be getting one of each, though. I am sure that the Cube will get at least two Zelda games during its lifespan.

I voted "realistic" because while graphics are certainly second to gameplay...they're still second.

I voted realistic. I'll buy it either way as gameplays all that matters in deciding whether to buy a game or not. But I'd prefer to have the great Zelda game with the more realistic graphics from the old spaceworld video. I'm just not a big fan of cel-shaded graphics. Jet Grind Radio did nothing for me, but of course I hated the gameplay in that game as well.

But Zelda will be great, regardless of what it looks like, but I definitely prefer the realistic look over Celda.

Well, I decided to not buy a GC when they announced Celda. If they go back to Zelda, (the way it should be), you can call me Mr. Gamecube.

What is 2D Link looking at down there?




The real Link of course.





I don't think the Celda Link could handle this Ganon.




I, of course, voted for the real Zelda.

Didn't Nintendo say they were reconsidering the Celda look? Provided that's true, then this poll could be very influencial.

Cell-shading to do not make it a 2D game. but according to this, JSRF is 2D as well?

I for one am very excited about playing "Celda". Regardless of what it looks like, it will eb a great game. I wonder was there such a fuss as this over the kick to the N64 version? People need to let Nintendo make the game they want(I am not singleing anyone out here, I am refering to the over 70% who are complaining.)

In the case of the screenshots I have seen, it does give it a 2d image quality. In later stages of production, it will probably get a more 3d look like JSRF.

But Cel shading is a terrible step down from what it used to be, in my opinon anyway.

The only people that can stop Nintendo from making the game they want is Nintendo.

Only 9% actually like Celda and 21% will buy it either way. If the number crunchers at Nintendo decide ignoring that remaining 70% is going to hurt sales, then artistic preference is worthless at this point.

That's an interesting perversion of the numbers. I fall into the 70%, but I'm buying the game no matter the graphics.

Well it's quite obvious Nintendo will have to figure out how many of that 70% won't buy a Cel Shaded Zelda.

That's a given.

If Nintendo is so foolish as to base their products off internet polls.

Edit: It's obvious that more people would prefer the pre-E3 Zelda, but Miyamoto is going cel-shaded because he wants to, not because he's under the mistaken impression that it will sell better.

If any other site created it, I would agree with you. But Nintendo is the one that created this poll.

Do you think it's just there for foolish fun?

First this survey means nothing. It will not change the fact it's going to be "toon shaded" However, it's still statistical data that is being collected.

So if the sales aren't as high as accepted the dude who made this survey can laugh at Shigeru Miyamoto and say….gee 71.8% did not want this game. Next time do some research, market testing and use the tri-force before you jump into a game.

Anyway, that 71% is huge! I'm shocked that it's so high. I wouldn't be surprised if the survey was on a celda bashing site, but it's NOA.

Well time will only tell. I'm keeping my figures crossed. And if all fails we still have Zelda OoT

If Nintendo changes the look, it doesn't mean that they'll change the gameplay. This Zelda could look really good and have the gameplay we've seen in the Celda look.

I also voted "who cares?" I'm not going to skip it just because it looks different, if it has the awesome gameplay, characters, story, and music that makes Zelda what it is thats what counts. I actually thought it looked pretty cool. All the sites that were at Spaceworld have said that the quality of the internet videos and screencaps don't give a good indication of how good it amazing it looks in person anyway. I'm about 3/4 way through Oracle of seasons and its great! Just gimme Zelda!!
