The Legend of Zelda in my life

Disclaimer: This is a repost of a blog I posted on my other account Krow. I'm sorry if that offends anyone, I just wanted it to be moved to my primary account. Now excuse me while I dither on for a bit and share with you a story about The Legend of Zelda series. Also, I'm young. Get over it.

Every time I see that video I'm reminded of just how much I hate most modern day commercials, and how shitty video game advertisements have become over the last two years. I can also safely say that I think about just how much I love The Legend Zelda: Majora's Mask in all of its incarnations. In all of my life as a gamer, no game has ever moved me the way this one did. I'd go so far as to call it my personal greatest game of all time, if it weren't for a couple of design flaws (Here's a note from the future. I've decided that those design flaws don't matter and I firmly hold this game up as my favorite). Are you prepared for a fapfest? If so, read on.

Growing up for me meant living with two parents who stopped functioning at 6:00 p.m. nightly, thanks to alcoholism. When I was younger, I didn't pay much attention to their drinking habits. I don't even think that I was aware of their problem until I was nine years old. Once it started to become a little more clear to me that my parents were different people at night, I started to play video games more and more. One of my refuges was the Zelda series.

The ending of Majora's Mask was unlike any other Zelda title I had played before in that it was bittersweet. I had saved Termina from its fate, but not all of its denizens from theirs. My heart hung heavy for those that were lost, and watching Link ride off alone into the forest was far harder than it should of been. If you wrote Majora's Mask off as a half-assed attempt at an Ocarina of Time sequel, please revisit it. I think it's something every Zelda fan should experience.

Some write off the Zelda series as being stuck in its ways, refusing to conform to the modern perception of what makes a game great. If I were to say any of that wasn't true, I'd be a liar, and as a fan, I welcome change in the Zelda series so long as I can keep adventuring as Link. Long live The Legend of Zelda, the best therapy a kid can buy.

I'm an aspiring writer, musician, and artist. That doesn't necessarily mean I'm very talented in any of those fields, but that won't stop me from throwing the titles around. I'm presently a high school graduate who has no idea what he wants to do with his life.

Contact me. I'm bored.
