Superbone is bored. Stirring up trouble in all the off topics.

:D It's been dead around here. Trying to get the ball rolling!

I’ve been addicted to the Switch Zelda Skyward Sword remake. I’m about 40 hours in.
I never played the original, but I would say Zelda is my favorite video game franchise. I think I am going to try this one out.

It's right up there for me as well. I've always said that Ocarina of Time was my all-time favorite game. Breath of the Wild was also fantastic.

Jupiter Hell on PC is amazing. It's like turn based, action packed semi top down Doom. From the developer of DRL.
What is smallball? I play basketball. I'm not a regular big man. I can switch from the center to the guards. The game is evolving. You got dudes like Joel Embiid, Anthony Davis, all these 7-footers, doing everything. There's no stopping us. - Ayton

My fav Zelda game ever is A Link Between Worlds. Before that it was A Link to the Past. Those are both fantastic. My brain is not all that great lately, and I can't remember much from Ocarina of Time. I think I get it mixed up with others. I just looked it up and it came out while I was in college and I probably played it from like 1-3 am each day between school and work and my mind blocked most of it out.

I'm playing the Switch remake with my youngest when he's visiting. We've gotten pretty far. A couple dungeons to go, I believe. A lot different (top down, 2D) than the modern Zeldas. I prefer the Zeldas since they went 3D.

I have a special nostalgia for the top down ones. The mechanics are straight forward, the music is that simple, but amazing 8-bit to 16-bit stuff. I also prefer the dungeon style in those over BotW, even though those were really fun and different.

Ha! Just went to go look in my entertainment center drawer where I have my N64 and I had Ocarina of Time sitting right next to it with the only other 2 games I still have--Rogue Squadron and Madden 99.

The Nintendo music has always been great. Now we get fully orchestrated versions of their iconic themes.

So I am about 48 hours into this game now (thanks Sup!). It is filling the gap between BotW 1 & 2...

I still have to get my 3rd flame. Heading to Eldin now.

Cool! I'm 67 hours in and very near completion. Talk about getting your money's worth! Today might even be the day. I've been pretty addicted.

Yeah, that's pretty crazy. And I thought I was playing it a lot. :D I went over 70 hours last night. Still not quite there.

Speaking of your adventures in gaming with Zelda, I'm curious what game any of you have put the most hours into?

Checking Steam right now, it says I've played 351 hours of Dead Cells. I've put about 150-200 hours on the Switch into Dead Cells so that's definitely the most time I can think I've put into any game, ever, at around 550 hours.

Slay the Spire is 2nd on Steam at a measly 175 hours.

Over the course of my life, Zelda is probably what I spent the most time on for a series. For a single game, it is probably COD WWII. Come to think of it, I started that series back with COD II and have played all but a couple in the series, and that goes back annually to 2005 or so. I used to play those a lot with friends. So that is probably what I spent the most time on as a series, too.

Whoa, 550 hours / 24 hours/day is almost 23 full days! Or 69 work days at 8 hours per day. Or 8.5 weeks at 40 hours a week. :D And I never had even heard of the game before!

I don't think I've even put anything close to that into any one game. I'd guess about 100 hours is my record. Maybe put that into BotW. Yeah, Zelda would be my most played series by far.

Right at 60 hours now... Have no idea how much longer I have. I just learned one verse of the hero song.

When I played BotW I really missed the use of the TriForce and no more dungeons. This is scratching both of those itches for me.
