Dude, buy it. A lot of Zelda fans hate on WW, but it's one of my favorites. I included WW, LttP, and Skyward Sword on my list in the top 10 games of all time thread, but I'm not sure about the order. But there's something about Wind Waker that takes you back to gaming when you were a kid. It had a "different" visual scheme, great story, and literal LOL moments. The music is top notch, and there are enough side quests to really give you bang for your buck. I don't know about the price, but I know used copies of the GameCube version are going for around 40 bucks on eBay and Amazon, so for an extra 20 bucks? I think it's totally worth it. There's just something magical about that game that I can't explain.
I played the DK game for the Wii, and that was also a nice little throwback to the SNES days. Still great game play with a nice difficulty curve and kicking tunes in the background. There's no doubt in my mind the Wii U version will be bitchin, and I haven't even seen anything on it yet. Personally, I'm waiting on the Wii U. It'll probably be the only next Gen console I pick up, but I need a new Zelda game to go with it before I make the purchase.
