As I tried to think of something to write about for this article, a good many things crossed my mind, possibly things that I'll write articles about later on. However, the majority of the things I thought about were annoyances rather than things I hated. Things like friend codes, XBox Live, Zelda: Twilight Princess, every Final Fantasy game after 9, etc. Then, it hit me: The Water Temple.
There was only one problem with writing an article about this: trying to keep the swearing to a minimal. It's a risk I'm willing to take! Let's get at it!
Where the hell do I begin!? Here I am, a 10-year-old boy who's been experiencing what I considered to be the greatest adventure ever, The Legend of Zelda: The Ocarina of Time. There were so many secrets and wondrous things to discover that I literally thought that somehow the game had to be magical. This game could do no wrong. I had already been blown away by the big twist that Link gets locked away for seven years, scared to death by the Forest Temple and the dirty feeling that I got from having the life humped out of me by zombies. Then there was the fact that I had triumphed over a huge dragon in the middle of a volcano by smashing it's head with a FREAKING HAMMER! What could possibly top it?
