Hello and welcome to the latest edition of Zelda You: Our Stories, our now bi-weekly regular feature series that is all about two things, our love for Zelda and our love for talking about Zelda. We already kicked the series off with staff stories, but now that the Miketendo64 staff have had their say, we’re sharing the stories that You have sent in to us, so what are we waiting for? It’s time to begin!
Today’s first and only story comes from Liam Callahan, Zelda fan and a member of Zelda Amino, (free downloadable app,) the largest mobile community for Zelda enthusiast!
Liam Callahan: -Why I Love the Legend of Zelda:
“Man, this franchise. I LOVE IT SO MUCH IT HURTS. It has so many great qualities, and that’s what I’m here to talk about.
First off, the characters. We have the main ones, Link (my favourite!), Zelda, and Ganon/Ganondorf. However, we have characters such as Talon, Moosh, that clown guy from Skyward Sword, my point is that these characters are the most creative and unique I’ve ever seen. They’re unlike any characters I’ve ever seen.
Now we have the story. I’m not going to explain the story, because I can’t! Each game has its own awesome story, each one being different than the last, and I love all of them. Such as in The Wind Waker, Hyrule is sunken in the ocean! Or Majora’s Mask, where Majora’s Moon CRASHES INTO EARTH. How about Skyward Sword, where they live in the sky. See what I mean?
Next is the addition. The addition, besides for the story, makes each game unique. Each game has one, except for maybe the first, you know, being the first in the series and all. You know what I’m talking about, being able to become a painting in A Link Between Worlds, the masks in Majora’s Mask, the sailing in the Wind Waker, the flying in Skyward Sword, stuff like that.
The dungeons, although being hard sometimes, are fun and challenging. The atmosphere and settings are great, as well. Over all, this franchise is a masterpiece. I love it beyond belief, and it will always be my favourite. Thank you for your time. Oh, I forgot to mention that the music is AMAZING.”
We would like to take this moment to thank Liam for sharing his story with us and if you would like to take a Deku leaf out of his book and do the same, then listen up because we revised the submission process to make it a much simpler experience. For those willing to put their story/experience forth and be credited for it, along with any photos you wish to send in as well, you can either send it through a private chat in the Zelda Amini app, provided you have it of course.
For those of you who don’t, be sure to visit our Facebook Page Miketendo64 and send us a direct message. Or should you prefer a more direct route, you can send us an email at: firstname.lastname@example.org. We wish to have this series run for as long as possible, so there is no limit to the number of stories you can send in to us and nor is there a closing date for submissions, so what are you waiting for? Get in touch and leave your mark on the series today!
This has been Issue #2 of Zelda You: Our Stories, we hope you enjoyed it and encourage you to come back two weeks from now (June 26th 2016,) for the next instalment!
