I grew up on Ocarina of Time: it remains one of my favorite video games to this day, although Majora’s Mask holds the number one spot. I think one of the most interesting differences between the two games are how the characters’ attention is directed: in OoT all attention is given to the player, to Link, whereas in MM attention is generally reserved for each other and for the dead that Link passes as.
You made a mistake when you chose me.
You should be grateful: you’re the only boy I’ve ever waited for.
If only I could turn back time.
Would you laugh if I said the most interesting thing to ever happen to me was you?
I call you the one that got away.
Hey, we’ve all been there. A lot of people say “good writers borrow, great writers steal,” and those people are all a lot more accomplished so I believe it. I firmly believe that, while “there are no new ideas under the sun,” there are plenty of combinations of cliches or tropes that if they’ve even been done before, haven’t seen a perfect adaptation. Haven’t told an ideal story. Haven’t been used to their fullest.
