A Man of Few Words

funny as duck

BAHAHAHAHA! As any Zelda fan knows, this comic spews truth serum all over every inch of the internet . I think the only legitimate words I’ve ever heard Link muster is in Ocarina of Time: If Link steps off of the edge of a ledge but manages to grasp onto the ledge, he’ll say “Oh whoa!” AND DON’T TELL ME THAT LINK TALKS A LOT DURING THAT TV SHOW HE WAS IN because as far as I’m concerned, that was, like, not Link.

I’ve often wondered how the Zelda franchise would be impacted of Link was given a voice and a true “personality”. Personally I wouldn’t mind seeing Link adopting those things, but I think there’s absolutely no way Nintendo could nail it in such a way that everyone would be appeased — which, let’s face it, appeasing everyone is a task no video game developer can ever accomplish but when you’re dealing with a franchise like The Legend of Zelda I can’t help but wonder if it’s best not to, like, go there.

I’m not a huge Metroid fan (only because I haven’t played the games :/) but wasn’t there recently a SNAFU that sorta-kinda dealt with the same voice acting/personality issue?

  • The Metroid issue is because of a Metroid Anime that was made in which Samus, who has generally had a reputation as being a badass, was pretty much turned into a sniveling ninny.

      Ah. That rings a bell. Thanks!

  • I haven’t played the new Metroid but by all accounts they apparently made Samus all scared woman like and dependent on her male superior

    • britt5091

      Yeah, gotcha. I can see how fans would be pissed!

    I agree with you there, Link can NOT have a personality, this trait (or lack thereof) is essential to the man’s legacy! It’s like taking a bite out of the Triforce if you gave him a personality.

    • britt5091

      And that would be just as bad as if someone, like, took a bite out of one of my oreos.

        more like pulled it apart, licked the creamy center, then put it back together only to watch you eat it!
