As most people, for nostalgic reasons. I got my first video game console in 2004, the Gamecube. I was at my grandparent's house with my cousins for the holidays in 2003 and they got my cousin a Gamecube game (I believe it was Tak and The Power of Juju). I had no idea what the thing was and I thought it was really cool and since my birthday is in February I wanted one for my birthday. Anyways fast forward to my birthday, my grandparents got me my Gamecube and bought me some game I don't even remember but I wanted Mario Kart Double Dash (Since I had played it at my friends house at some point between December and February). I guess I was being kind of a dick back then but they agreed anyways. The next day my friend got my a present since he had found out I just got a Gamecube and I opened it to find the first Gamecube game I had ever owned: The Wind Waker. Now I absolutely love this game to death and have been playing it for the past 9 year religiously, I know how to beat the main story of this game like I know the back of my hand (Never actually 100% completed this game, waiting on the Video Walkthrough ZD....). But back in the day I got stuck many times, the 3 that stick out the most are when you get the shield and need to get back into the boat, I kept trying to jump back into the boat but it never worked and keep in mind that I never read the dialogue back in the day, but one day I just talked to everyone and mashed A and then I went to a cutscene on the boat (I now know that you need to talk to Tetra to get on the boat). Second, when you had to Sidle across the wall to get your sword back, I could never figure out how to get that light to go away (I now know where to go and what to do). Lastly I got stuck at the Triforce charts (like every other kid). My friend beat the game and gave me his safe file which was on the Second Quest, of course I beat that until the Triforce charts and for a long time just kept beating the game up to that point and them quitting. I remember one day my grandparents took me into EB Games and I got Ocarina of Time w/ Master Quest (I never played OoT prior, I just liked Zelda at that point) and behind a bunch of strategy guides for one game was a bent Wind Waker strategy guide which I also got. This guide never helped me because back in the day I only looked at the pictures and didn't read the words (what a shock). I actually beat Ocarina of Time AND The Minish Cap (2005) before I beat The Wind Waker. Now in 2006 I moved from NJ to CA and of course it was hard on me, but I actually decided to for once read the strategy guide and I actually beat the game and realized that the triforce hunt isn't that bad. A few months later Twilight Princess came out and then I just kept getting more Zelda as the years went on and now I have all the games except The Oracles (waiting for them on the e-Shop). I actually on recently (last time I played the game) found out that the letter for 201 rupees is the most helpful thing in the world, buy that and the Triforce hunt won't be nearly as annoying. Zelda has been a huge part of my life for so many years, me and my ex-best friend used to play Wind Waker for hours at a time just doing nothing or replaying the game, we even loved Zelda so much that out other friend's mom made us Link costumes which I still have to this day! I actually made a Wind Waker Walkthrough (which is now deleted) but put all the footage together and sped it up x20 and put it on my YouTube channel (Mrflamexd3) and it went from 10 hours to 30 minutes so as far as I know I can beat The Wind Waker with no clipping or hacking in 10 hours. I wasn't going to buy a Wii U until the new Zelda game came out and I usually don't go for remakes but The Wind Waker HD is a no refusal offer, that's a deal breaker for me. I may even 100% both versions once ZD Video Walkthrough comes out, and record both of those and speed them up x20 and put them on my YouTube channel. I mean who knows, my first game could have been Metroid Prime and a huge part of my life could have been completely different.
