ALBW is to ALttP what Yoshi's New Island is to Yoshi's Island.

So why are people willing to call out YNI for what it is yet so blind when it comes to ALBW?

Because while ALBW isn't a great game (better than ALttP, but not that great), it isn't outright terrible like Yoshi's New Island.

The Witcher 3 is overrated.

I just havent found much enjoyment in the OW or dungeons yet on LA. And the lack of items is a total downer.

I STILL couldn't afford the bow after 4th dungeon. Imagine its just a boring single shot unable to be upgraded like ALBW. What other decent items are there? (Asking for spoilers as Im considering giving up playing it).

The second dungeon has Roc’s feather. There’s also the optional color dungeon, which allows you access to either a 2x boost in power or defense in the form of the red and blue tunics respectively.

It's almost like it's a remake or something. A Link Between Worlds on the other hand, is a sequel and an entirely different beast.

this...at the end of the day this is a comparison of a gameboy game made 26 years ago, to a 3ds game made 6 years ago

Its a comparison between the two 2D Zeldas of recent years. And the newer one is far inferior to the other and is on a newer console. The question is why?

Because your tastes are different. Also because you're expecting a remake of a much older game to be drastically different from the original formula for some reason.

Far inferior... outside frame drops on screen transition, which last a second tops, by what metric?

Not bashing, just curious your reasoning. The remake is trying to be faithful to a game that came out 20 years ago originally after all, whereas ALBW subverted the formulae and has original dungeons and overworld content
MGM Studios isn't Spielberg. Fox isn't George RR Martin. Square Enix isn't Hironobu Sakaguchi. Great storytellers are who make great stories, not companies.
