post-futurism: Link and Young Link :)

Already answered Young Link, but here’s my answer for Link.

Link: A game or a part of a game that really tested my courage.

I’ve never been rattled by many scenes in games, but the hallway ghost in the first Fatal Frame, the sea dragon in Okami, and the redeads in Zelda all unnerved me. Wallmasters in Zelda leave me feeling jarred and scrambling for safety, but I’m not exactly scared of them… it’s more that I’m just desperate not to be pulled all the way back to the entrance.

I experienced a similar desperation with the aliens in Majoras Mask.

The Banshee’s in Fable 2 were intimidating, and the Crawler’s domain in Fable 3 was quite a strain to explore, though the Crawler itself was disappointing.

regenerating: Mario, Wario, Marth, and Young Link

Mario: My favorite video game series, and favorite game in the series.

As you well know, Ellen, my favourite video game series is the Legend of Zelda and my favourite game in the series is The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker (which is extremely closely followed by The Legend of Zelda: Majoras Mask.)

Wario: A character I don’t like in one of my favorite series.

While it’s techinically not a series, I still feel it’s of prime importance for me to point out how completely awful and clodding Jimmy Hopkins from Bully/Canis Canem Edit is.

If I were to choose a character from a series it would be Kenny from The Walking Dead, who I’ve found to be a rather boring character in his obvious representation of father’s who cling to fatherhood and the arbiter of ironically selfish acts of devotion to a (probably deceased) intimate member of his group.

I also find Tingle from the Legend of Zelda annoying and an unnecessary target of much of Nintendo’s attention.

Rikku from Final Fantasy is an awful pandering to the demeaning sterotypes for sub-human vessels of perkiness and sexual appeal. Just awful. 

Marth: A game I never played but would really like to.

Amnesia: The Dark Descent is a priority of my future gaming plans. I’d like to play Everwinter Nights, but it’s nearly impossible to find cheap and my computer cannot even begin to handle the game. Journey looks neat, as does The Elder Scrolls online.

Young Link: A game that I consider my childhood.

The one game that is most encapsulating of childhood escape and wonder is The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time.

But Paper Mario, Super Mario 64, Pokemon Gold Version, Animal Crossing, Harvest Moon, Snowboard Kids 2, and Ty The Tasmanian Tiger were also important.
