It's wierd listenning to the conversation you guys had about Zelda. You're completely right, but you set a up a situation that Nintendo can't fix. You've got people saying that the formula is getting stale (which is true), but then the same people have an adverse reaction to changes to said formula.

And strangest part was you kind of acknowledged that you guys were jumping on both of this argument, but never thought of a way to fix it. This isn't a criticism, it was very (for want of a better word) interesting listening, the problems you have with the zelda franchise (and how these problems can represent many Nintendo franchise as a whole), but there didn't seem to be a way fix these problems short of completely starting from scratch again, or giving and moving on, which is still a lose, lose situation for everyone.
