Transmission T²: Legend of Link’s Distraction

Just one more round of fishing, just one. Maybe...

Legend of Zelda Oncarina Of Time

Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time is a timeless classic, widely considered by many gamers to be the the best game ever created. A story that weaves together a coming of age tale with a battle of good versus evil, Ocarina of Time was a game that stayed with you long after you were done playing. It was also the first Legend of Zelda outing to feature 3D graphics, and was set in a huge, vibrant world. There was plenty to do in Hyrule, and not all of it involved fighting evil. Nostalgia may paint a different picture over time, but looking back, a lot of use dedicated much of our time in the game to completing side quests, almost all by choice. It was just too hard to resist getting that bigger pouch or extra heart container. And you could always tell yourself it was helping you out for things further along in the game.

This video from College Humor takes a tongue-in-cheek look at that tendency, though. After all, it’s not like Ganondorf just takes it easy on everyone after his evil campaign has taken over all of Hyrule. Evil doesn’t stop because you need to catch a bigger fish. But don’t bother trying to tell that to the ADD Link from the video below.

There used to be an embeded media player here, but it doesn't work anymore. We blame the Tumbeasts.
