i voted for zelda even though i play minecraft a lot more. i just think zelda is better because of the puzzles and other stuff. minecraft is a sandbox game that u can pretty much do watever u want. there is still some similarities though. they both have kinda the same heart system and(in the case of skyward sword) u can upgrade items to be better. i like zelda because it has more of a story.
I can't decide, I play each one with a different mindset. With The Legend of Zelda, I am embarking on a epic quest to save the kingdom, vanquishing and who would try to stop me! While playing minecraft though, I tend to putter around, fixing my house, exploring some caves, and building better defenses.
I may get booed for this, but I have to say Minecraft mainly because I'm not a fan of the newer Zelda games. I was a kid when the originals came out, so maybe it's one of those "when i was your age" things... but I'mjust partial to the older ones. I think the revamping they did took the quality of the game downwards. Though, one thing evey Zelda game has had, was a good story. I feel that way about the Final Fantasy series as well. But, on the original topic, the multiplayer facet of MC is really nice too, and being able to build and construct is a nifty feeling.
Well, the original is great.
though if you ever want to try out more Zelda games,
I would only recommend all the 2D games,
and Wind Walker for a 3D game, and probably Ocarina of time too.
(Though, Zelda games are not every one's style of course.)
Any ways, I hope the original on the 3DS will get it's 3D effect soon.
