    Its been a while since I've played. Whats the shadow powers?
    Anyway I really enjoyed TP (the Wii version). I definitely recommend trying to get into it again.
    Is it the thought of playing the game or are you actually sitting there bored playing it?

    And by shadow powers i meant the dark shadows you get after you beat a temple boss.

    I always get to the Lakebed Temple and lose steam. Pretty sure that's what you've just beaten. It just takes so much out of me and I lack the energy to go onto play the superior second half of the game.

    Twilight Princess is better than Skyward Sword IMO.

    The game does get better after that Lakebed Temple, I think the next dungeon was awesome but definitely the boss battle was really fun.

    Quite sure, but I already played TP (and loved it) many years ago (a decade?) in the early days of the Wii.

    If you find them boring, try with Majora's Mask... :sarcasm:
    Don't misunderstand, i love the game, but is a pain in the ass to get thru all temples every time you find you forgot something, and the skulltullas houses...

    If it annoys you don't do it.
    Collectionism is there as an option, if you enjoy it.
    Why would you do it if you suffer it?

    Well...you dont NEED to do that. Just focus on the story and get the 100% in the game you really enjoy.

    I never collect everything in any of the Legend of Zelda games (apart from A Link Between Worlds because it was really easy).
    Twilight princess is probably the most difficult to collect all items because there are more heart pieces (5 pieces to make a full heart as opposed to he usual 4) and poe souls are really difficult to locate. I don't recommend trying to find all items, it just ruins the experience if you spend all your time doing this.

    And your point being?

    PS: If he enjoys that good for him, but if I don't like apples I will not force myself to eat apples just because someone else eats apples on youtube.

    Sorry, i'm gonna keep using Majora's Mask as an example if you don't mind.
    You can finish it perfectly fine if you don't get everything, that's not a problem in any zelda game, MM at getting the Fiery mask, for example, you must get every mask ingame, and that means you need to buy 1 mask that you must pay 999 rupees, but to get that amount, you must have the big rupees "sack" (english is not my main language, please forgive...), and for that, you must go to both skulltulas houses to get all 100 of them, and it's a real pain in the ass, lol, but all of that is only if you want it that bad.
    TP is even less tiring, is not as if you must get all the heart pieces to finish it, is not that hard to finish it, if anything, is long to go all the dungeons, but that's one of the big points of zelda series, everywhere can be a suitable place for a dungeon, even if you've gone there 30 times, you find a new thing, and that's fun imo.

    Sorry for the long read...

    First world problems.

    If you got bored, don't play. If you want to play, play. Pretty goddamn simple. You must be 12 if this is a legitimate issue in your life right now.
