The easiest way to write off the story and any consequences of it is to say “It was all just a dream anyway.” This ignores just how powerful this “dream” is. The Windfish is not simply a whale with wings. It is a sentient being capable of powers that can’t be explained.
Personally, Link’s Awakening has always been my favorite Zelda title regardless of the “only a dream” opinion shared by many. The story is truly a work of art and leaves your mind searching for answers. It’s a shame that Link’s Awakening doesn’t get the credit it deserves, but luckily there are fans like Matt Simmons from Gemakei to show what this masterpiece truly has to offer. I’d highly recommend anyone to check out his article due to its terrific analyzations, so click the link below.
