“I’m happy that a title I worked on some time ago remains highly praised to this day, but that also shows how none of the subsequent games in the series have surpassed it. As someone who is still working on the series, I have mixed feelings about that. Because I haven’t yet surpassed it, I can’t quit. Surprisingly, that simply motivation may be the reason I continue to work on the Zelda series.” - Eiji Aonuma
Everyone knows now, the secret is out! We just have to keep metacritic scores lower than Ocarina of Time, and Aonuma will always strive to make the best Zelda game possible!
