A Deep Look into Zelda

Today, my friend pointed me to this really interesting article on Zelda Universe. The article involves some really deep themes that exist throughout different Zelda games. I encourage you to go and take a look at this article. After reading it, I thought a lot and I agree with the author. So go look at it now. 


I myself would have never considered any of the themes mentioned in the article. I would have never put them together. But truly they do connect. After reading this article it reminded me how magical the world of Zelda can be to a gamer. Zelda represents so much, but when I played these games originally as a kid, none of these themes came to mind. It is great that people still look at these story lines and connect them to see universal theme in Zelda games, intentional or not by Nintendo's part. Any ways thanks for talking a look.

Holy shit. That is one hell of a good essay. If I could write an essay like that, A+ in English for sure.
I always thought about these themes in the back of my head in most of the Legend of Zelda games, but of course, like most, I was more concentrated in saving the world.

That was a great read, thanks for the link. I've always thought about the deeper meanings and themes behind the Zelda series, that's why I love them so much. If games could be art, Zelda games would surely have their place.
