I remember when I first played WW, I rented it from a Blockbuster (lol). I was skeptical of the art style at first, but really grew to love that game. The HD version is in my top 5 Zeldas, as it trimmed some of the unnecessary fluff from the original game
Now Playing: Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D (3DS), GTA IV (XONE)
it didn't stick. i suck at stealth and at that age even getting into hyrule castle was a pain, and then i ended up getting stuck somewhere in dodongo's cavern when my rental ran out and just did not find it worth going back for.
it was majora that actually made me care about the series. the whole off-kilter atmosphere really appealed to me and got me to push through the parts of the gameplay i struggled with. i wanted to learn more about this clockwork town and its clockwork people and all the weird s*** they were dealing with.
It was Christmas of 2003. (I think; it might've been 2004, or 2002.) My brother got a GameCube, and I got The Wind Waker to play on it. I was seven.
Nowadays, I guess it is weird that I was the one my parents chose to buy it for. Make no mistake, I always played it together with my brother and sister - we all got stuck trying to get the Big Key in Dragon Roost Cavern, until our neighbor showed us what we were meant to do - but it was my game from the start. It was the first experience with video games I'd ever had, and I don't remember anything about me suggesting I would be particularly interested in The Wind Waker.
...Nonetheless, I'm still glad they made that choice. And I do sometimes still hope that my big sister and little brother will come over one day and we can all sit down and enjoy it together, just like we used to in the old days. (Or...enjoy the remake together, at least...I don't have the original anymore.) I know it's not likely, but a girl can dream.
