As I said, my posts from now on will be featuring video games.  I would have to kick myself if I didn’t do my very first post on my very favorite video game.  Not only is it my favorite video game, it’s the highest on my list of obsessions.  I know, you’re anxious to find out what I’m talking about.  I’ll remove all anxiety.  My obsession: The Legend of Zelda.

Oh yes, this one runs deep.  So deep, in fact, that right now I have a Zelda fanfiction open in another tab.  To be honest, it’s the only fanfiction I’ve ever read, so maybe I’m not as horrible as I thought.  It’s still pretty bad, though.

The Legend of Zelda: A Like to the Past was my very first video game.  That may not mean anything, but it’s still fun to say.

So…Zelda.  Yeah, Zelda.  A wonderful thing, that Zelda.  Zelda, Zelda, Zelda.  It’s an awesome name don’t you think?  I mean, honestly, how many names start with “z” and are easy to pronounce?  Don’t answer that, I would really like to believe that there aren’t that many.

Ok, enough mindlessness. 

I consider myself to be a huge Zelda fan.  Despite that, there are too many of the games I haven’t played, or even beaten.  For instance, I have not beaten either of the first two games.  I have played none of the Four Swords, nor Phantom Hourglass.  Ok, this is kinda useless information.

But, I am full of useful information.  In some games, I’m a walking startegy guide, and I am aware of theories, timelines, and other such fan-based info.

Hm…there must be something useful I can say about Zelda.  How about my reasons behind the obsession?  Actually, my reasons are the same as anyone else that is passionate about the game.  If you want my reasons, go to any Zelda site and see why.  The games have the ability to attract people, and have had such ability for many years. 

If you have never played the games, or tried one and dropped it, I suggest you reconsider.  Of course, saying that isn’t enough to persuade most people.  But, if you enjoy RPG’s or action adventures, try the very basis of them all. 

There’s a reason why so many people are obsessed with Zelda.  And it’s not the drinking water!
