Dorkly Presents: It Sucks Playing Games with Link

DjinnMarch 9th, 2013 by Djinn

In a recent comic from Dorkly we get a glimpse of just why it is so hard to play any games with Link. Here we see Link playing various games like Marco Polo and Red Rover but in every panel he has a certain item from one of the games in the series that always seems to give him an unfair advantage every single time. Of course much to the annoyance of everyone else trying to play with him.

Jump inside to check it out for yourself.

I never really thought about it but when you take the items he has collected over the years Link really does have something for every occasion. I think my favorite was Hide n’ Seek. And I think I would have gone with Ice Arrow for freeze tag.

    I think the one about hide and seek would have been much better with link using the ‘Stone’ mask, that way no one would ever ‘Seek’ him.

      or lens of truth would have been great.

        What’s that sticking out of Link’s ?pocket? in that picture then?

      • EyeOfSheikah

        Thats what he was using. It was in his back pocket. He presumably used it to see through the wall and then blew it up with his bomb.

  • Mseevers95

    The guy who threw a dodgeball at BEN died 12 hours later

    • Jam9t3

      No he died 7 days later while playing Majoras Mask.

      • Cskinner13

        No, he died three days later.

        • Merv?

          NO! he died… um i dont when, who is this guy anyway?

          • oozy the wolf

            a evil statue that haunted a majora’s mask cartrige and killed a man named jausable

    • firecrb

      Link must feel so alone sometimes.

      • Marinestar0

        Doesn’t he? I can’t imagine going through the shadow temple with out a companion, even if I do Navi with me, she only pops up when there is danger or to give an obvious hint.

    • Ben

      No, he died one idosecond later. You really think I’d wait that long to strike?

      • Mseevers95

        Yes. You enjoy inducing fear in others. He died 12 hours later but he was in constant torment until then.

        • Ben

          Nope. See, he actually died one idosecond later to induce fear in the people that saw, but he was kept in torment outside of time. (In fact, I am watching him scream right now.)

          • LinkWannaBe

            Fun times.

          • Ben

            I see what you did there (but you probably don’t [don't worry, I see everything]).

  • Darunia

    I found the Marco Polo the funniest.

  • rjhewgyrfu (aka ruifgyqforug)

    I don’t get the hide’n'seek one. Did he use the lens of truth to see through the wall, then blew it up with a bomb?

    BTW, I agree about the ice arrows.

    • Jordan D.

      Actually, yeah that seems to be it. I didn’t quite understand it either until you mentioned that.

      • oozy the wolf

        how did you not realize that!

        • bs8814

          Its called quickly looking over the picture and missing the lens… But I pay attention to detail so i didn’t have this problem ;)

  • Kaine Kinetic

    Link is using the Fire Arrow to UnFreeze the guy.

  • sombody you don’t know

    I thought he would have used Pegasus Boots in Red Rover.

    • WhiteSamurott

      What is Red Rover???

      • Linkfan99

        It’s where there’s 2 teams and they hold hands and umm well they have someone run towards them and see if they go through. Did I do a good job expwaining? ^-^

        • itsameluigi1290

          I did Red Rover once. And since I’m 6’3 and a half…

          Well, I won, to keep it simple XD

          • Linkfan99

            I would always just dive over their arms. :P

          • Anonymous

            Well, how are you then supposed to break their grips? Or do you play the pool vault practicing version?

          • Linkfan99

            No, as in, I would jump up, over their arms, and then belly-flop ONTO them.

  • Tehlul

    I’d love that farores wind when I’m playing CTF on Halo 4

    • alexlgamer

      Ctf in general

      • bs8814

        Well put.

  • Cmaster

    NO Link, don’t shoot, it’s just a game hes not really…*splat*

  • starman888

    the floor is lava… LOL!

  • RubyDragonCat

    Haha I love it!

  • jake c

    i liked the dodgeball one but is Ben really the only thing or generation is going to remember about Majora’s mask

    • Grammar Nazi

      *our. But the game was great besides Ben.

  • WhiteSamurott

    Perfect….I want those.

    Did LInk just speak in the last one…

    • firecrb


    • Phineas

      Yes. Yes he did.

    • bs8814

      Wow he did…

  • Thomas Durand

    I really like the freeze tag :)

  • L Lawliet

    Link: Heroic and couragous adventurer, but HUGE cheater at games.

    • Flicka115

      That’s because he’s too busy saving Hyrule.

  • Kablamogroup

    When I saw the title “The Floor is Lava”, I was thinking it would be Link wearing the Hover Boots, but I guess the Goron Tunic works, too.

    • Blah Blah

      Link couldn’t stand on lava with the Goron Tunic. He could if he were wearing the Goron Mask though.

  • baileygirl99

    Haha! That’s funny stuff!!!

  • JeredenDonnar

    Link must have a lot of metaphysical free-time between gameplays.
    Gotta do something, he went to SimsWorld!

  • oozy the wolf

    they needed to put in a game of actual zelda for nes. he would know how to get through all the dungeons

  • Linkandzel

    anyone else noticed that in the first one the people that link is playing with are the kids from windfall.

  • Jacob Tasiemski

    LOL! :D This is hilarious!

  • Wind waker Link


  • itsameluigi1290

    This is the first time in a while that a Zelda comic made me laugh!

  • GhostlyGengar99

    HA HA HA!!! funny he… he…

  • Vink

    Hahaha, this is so funnyXD, I love the Floor is lava one.
    P.S Link spoke on freeze tag.

  • Vink

    Link could use hover boots to cheat in games.

    Link could play the Song of Time (Majoras Mask) in a game of poker so he’ll know what the opponents hands are going to be when he goes back in time.

    Link could also play the ‘Reversed song of time’ (Majoras Mask) so that he can beat olympic world records.

  • PRDX4

    I was supposed to me a Fire Arrow because Link’s teammate got “frozen” and Link was helping to thaw him out…
    I didn’t get Red Rover. How do you play again?

  • Rob

    So our hero wins all those Heart Containers and Rupees by cheating…

  • Kaine Kinetic

    The only one I don’t understand is the DodgeBall one.

  • Link_5_10

    for red rover link played the scarcrow song then he clinged on with his longsohot getting through for sure

  • Nick Holmes

    For hide and seek, shouldn’t he have used the Stone Mask?
