In Celebration for the Upcoming The Legend of Zelda; Skyward Sword...

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Being a very big fan of The Legend of Zelda series, I decided to create a thread where everyone can post and discuss their favorite aspects of the franchise. Let's get started!

1. Post a description and or video of your favorite scene.

2. Post the name and or picture of your favorite character.

3. Post the name and or video of your favorite song.

4. Post the name and or picture of your favorite gadget.

5. Tell us which of the entries in The legend of Zelda franchise is your favorite.

6. Last but not least, tell us why The Legend of Zelda franchise is so important to you, in which ways it's impacted your life and what it means to the gaming industry.

Naturally you may use examples from any title within The Legend of Zelda franchise.

P.S. Feel free to add any other important categories I may have missed.

1. The kid behind the mask.

This scene displays the real skull kid. Although misguided, he was a good soul who was unfortunately consumed by uncontrollable urges for recognition through power and destruction.

2. Makar.

He was such a lively little tree stump. He was also one hell of a violin player!

3. The Song of Healing.

http://www.youtube.com/embed/XDX4ZwUeOok

The Song of Healing was simple and short yet so hauntingly beautiful.

4. The light arrows from The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker.

Light_Arrow_(Ocarina_of_Time_and_Majora's_Mask).png

I thought it was pretty awesome how enemies warped when being pierced by these arrows.

5. The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask.

I love how they incorporated the concept of time into the game and I thought the alternate quests were excellent, especially helping to fight off cow stealing aliens at Romani Ranch and relaying messages of love to and from Anju and Kafei.

6. To make a long story short...

The Legend of Zelda has been a big part of my life, in that I can use it to escape into worlds that I will never physically experience for myself. You know you have an excellent video game when the story, characters, music, etc. pull emotions out of you that you otherwise wouldn't display very often. I silently thank Nintendo for gracing us with The Legend of Zelda and hope for a bright future for the franchise.

P.S. I didn't know how to embed videos in the thread. I can go back and fix them if someone would be so kind to tell me how it's done. I also meant to put In Celebration OF instead of In Celebration FOR in for the title of the thread.

1. Post a description and or video of your favorite scene.
When Link learns the song of time in OoT and pulls the sword out. WHAT?! He grows up? Epic game.
2. Post the name and or picture of your favorite character.
Sheik. She is awesome in Brawl.
380


3. Post the name and or video of your favorite song.
This was tough choice, but gotta go with the Dark World from LttP. Song of Time and Bolero of Fire are awesome as well.

4. Post the name and or picture of your favorite gadget.
Double Clawshots = Spider Link!!
200

5. Tell us which of the entries in The legend of Zelda franchise is your favorite.
Link to the Past. Such an amazing game and SNES were my favorite years of gaming. I cannot count how many times I have re-played this one.

6. Last but not least, tell us why The Legend of Zelda franchise is so important to you, in which ways it's impacted your life and what it means to the gaming industry.
I don't know if it has impacted my LIFE per se, but Zelda has always been a go-to franchise for me. Anytime I want to just have fun and enjoy video games, I know Zelda will not let me down. The game never gets old to me.

Yeah dude. I am going to buy Skyward Sword for the Wii (I support Nintendo) but I've also ordered a bluetooth dongle so I can play it in 1080 on Dolphin. I am really excited!
