Brilliantly Bad Zelda Article

Princess Zelda Face PalmEvery once in awhile you come across a person who has absolutely no idea what they are talking about, but feels the need to talk about it nonetheless. In a recent article in a local high school newspaper, author Hannah Tackett talks about The Twilight Princess and describes the greatness of what the game is. Please note that the article is dated for March 28th, 2010 and well, it’s highly inaccurate. Enjoy…

Zelda, the princess of Hyrule, has been around since 1987, when the first video game of the series made its appearance. Since then, people have fallen in love with the game. The newest edition to the series, The Legend of Zelda; The Twilight Princess is no disgrace to the gaming world. It is by far the best game of The Legend of Zelda series.

Like all the other Zelda games, Link, the young noble hero of the game must save Zelda and the land of Hyrule from darkness and evil. Starting in Link’s tree house in his home village, like all the other Zelda games, Link must learn skills that will eventually help him on his quest to save Hyrule. As the game continues you will discover the whole world that The Legend of Zelda has to offer.

The Twilight Princess, like any other Zelda game is not just a video game. It’s a puzzle, testing your logical thinking. The more the game continues the game gets increasingly harder, and tests your logical thinking even more. The graphics and details in this particular game have improved since the original Zelda came out, and the Zelda games that followed. Made for the Wii console, it allows the player to be active with the game and really experience the character of Link. It’s a must own for all Wii and Zelda lovers. Enter the world of Hyrule and let Zelda warm your heart.

Please don’t take this article seriously… and if you thought for a second that it was serious, shame on you. Alright, let’s point out the mis-facts and poorly formulated opinions found in this glorious article.

1. There is no The in Twilight Princess.
2. Twilight Princess is not the latest Zelda game in the series. (See Phantom Hourglass and Spirit Tracks).
3. “It is by far the best game of The Legend of Zelda series.” An opinion, so I’ll let this statement pass.
4. Link starts off in a tree house in only one other Zelda title. (See Ocarina of Time). Not “like all the other Zelda games.”
5. Also an opinion, but Twilight Princess had some of the least amount of puzzles and was one of the games with the least logical thinking.
6. Stating the obvious, but we’d assume graphics would improve in the 20 years since the original Legend of Zelda.
7. The game was originally made for the Gamecube and ported over, and wasn’t originally made for the Wii.

Outside these seven points, this article nails it right on the spot. Problem is, without these seven points, this article tells us nothing other than Zelda can warm your heart. Thanks Hannah for this marvelous piece of work and I look forward to your next article. Cheers!
