Back in the NES days, before LTTP and OOT codified the Zelda formula, Nintendo was experimental with their first LOZ sequel. Making a game that played very differently from the first. A side scrolling adventure game (though the world map was top down again). It was the first Zelda game with a magic system, and the first one to have a button for jumping.
The game is enjoyed by some, but its difficulty and design have left others frustrated by it. Would you want Nintendo to make another game like this? Another side scrolling adventure game, leaning from past mistakes, and with all the experience and polish Nintendo has today?
The two "yes" options are bad; there needs to just be a "yes", or if there has to be some kind of stupid sentence after just "yes", "I would love to see and play another, and then we'll see if Nintendo should make any more in that style afterward".
i don't think i'd want one that's primarily sidescrolling like zelda 2, but i think the occasional sidescrolling areas that zelda 1 and LA had were interesting twists and i'd be interested in a game that tried to make more use of that
