Zelda Link's Awakening
Nintedo ended the Direct with a tease for a new Zelda game. As we all sat expecting the Breath of the Wild sequel currently in devlopment, Nintendo trolled everyone with a Remake instead. While this game looks fun, and die hard fans are thrilled; it isn't what we really wanted.
