I think my favorite thing about The Legend of Zelda series is how awesome their storylines are. All of my Zelda games have had many replays because I feel like each time I play them I’m re-reading a favorite book or re-watching a favorite movie all over again. The difficulty of the games rarely has impressed me, but the stories and music will never get old and will never cease to bring joy to my soul, and that is why they will always be among my favorite video games.
There are times when nothings right but Zelda’s music has always made me feel better, no matter how somber, or sad, or happy and upbeat. It always makes me feel better to play the songs when it feels like all is lost.
The first time I played Ocarina of Time, I was 5 years old. When I got to Hyrule Field, and night fell, the Stalchildren scared me so much that I didn’t play (and finish) my own file until I was 10 years old. I spent those other years wandering my uncle’s 100% save file.
To this day, every time I see those 3 slots for save files in Zelda, I silently rage, because with all my other games, I like to save before each and every memorable cutscene so that I can rewatch it whenever.
I think most of the hours I spent playing Twilight Princess were just by traveling around Hyrule. It’s just so beautiful.
Green has been my favorite color ever since I first played Ocarina of Time. All these years later it still hasn’t changed. It could be that Link’s tunic is green, but it was more walking around the Kokiri Forest and seeing all the world filled with this mysterious life I’d never seen in the real world. My mind thinks of it when it thinks of green. And when my mind thinks of it, it’s happy.
The only reason that I am getting a 3DS is to play Ocarina of Time. I probably won’t use the 3D feature at all.
Skyward Sword is the first game in years that forces me to finish my homework early just so I can fulfill my constant urge to play it.
