Let me start this off by asking: What is the greatest video game ever made? Broad question, open to many opinions I realize. By now you’re probably wondering what I think the answer to this question is, (no I’m not going to pick Assassin’s Creed). The greatest game ever made is: “The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time”, created for the greatest gaming console man has ever known: the N64. Now that you know my answer, I will begin to explain why I would want to live in Hyrule (where the game takes place).
This game totally engulfed my life when I was around 7 years old. I was fascinated by the overpowering good vs. evil themes that the game employed, as well as the simple (and mostly happy) life that the ordinary people lived in their villages. There are many creatures that live throughout Hyrule including the Gorons an the Zoras. They are both awesome. Personally, I wouldn’t mind being either one of these creatures. The Gorons have massive amounts of strength and seem virtually indestructible, while the Zoras can breath under water.
Sure there’s an evil king (Ganondorf) who rules over the land, but if I lived there I wouldn’t be worried at all. I could devote my time to aiding Link in his quest to banish the evil that resides over Hyrule, or sit back and watch him do it anyways. Good always wins over evil, (at least that’s what I thought when I was 7).
