True, but I would like Nintendo to show it a bit more in depth like this video.


Why? You'd basically hammer down whatever Link's struggle is to the player. If anything, they could add a few subtle reactions or something else to show Link's feelings on certain events. But that format where you tell the player every f***ing thought that goes through the guy's head is too much.

Why does everybody misinterpret what I say? I said that I wanted Nintendo to show it. Never did I say tell.

Neither of these events required even a single thought from Link, let alone personality.


That's because those events were aimed at the part of Jacob's post that had to do with Link making mistakes.


And why is it a new trend to call me Jacob?

Hah, one of my posts got modded for 'flaming'. Yet all of the off topic posts and Erika purposefully trying to 'insult' me by bringing up otakus for some reason are seen as perfectly acceptable. Beautiful.

Get rekt.


Couple of people here have issues of their own.
Regular folk don't go trying to make people react.

I'd say that's kinda sad, but they're happy acting this way or so they say anyway.

Showing the player every f***ing thought that goes through the guy's head is still too much. Besides, you said that you wanted them to show it like the video you put up and in the video they show it by telling you with the little phrases that pop up and showing you with the flashbacks they throw.

I don't know what to say here, other than sorry. I'm the one who's been misinterpreting things today >.<
Yeah, I see what you mean. But doing something like how that video did it would be a step closer to what we want. I guess just remove all of the words?
I disagree with you on the flashbacks, though; flashbacks can make it even more powerful.

Are you looking for off-topic topics? Because this is the kind of topic recently that lends itself to stay on topic.

It's ok, no need to worry. Just a small technical mistake on the interpretation. It's good that it got cleared up.

What do you mean by "doing something like how that video did"?

If used sparcely, it could work. But too many flashbacks and you get a Naruto.
