When I first saw that Wood from BeatEmUps had produced a video entitled “If You LIKE Zelda, You’ll LOVE These Games!” my original thought was, he’s found more new indie games that are like Zelda, or Zelda clones as they are widely known as, and is going to list them off. However to my delight, what he has compiled is a short list of big name developer games that play similar to Zelda. This peeked my interest because a few of these main stream games I have never played. And I certainly didn’t know they played like a Zelda game. The video actually makes me want to try the ones I missed out on.
Okami is the first game he suggests, and it is a game that I have never played. Watching a little side-by-side footage between Okami and Zelda: Twilight Princess, you can see the similarities. A thought you could easily bypass by looking only at screen shots from a gaming magazine (that was me).
As for the other titles he talks about, I’ll leave them for you to watch. Do you agree with his games? Did he leave off something? Let us know in the comment section.
You can watch the video below or click here to watch it here on YouTube. We have conveniently set it to start at 3:14 after the endorsement.
