So, my wife is a gamer. She isn't the go out on day one and buy the newest system and or game that interest her kind of gamer. She is the "I love this franchise and therefore will play my favorite games from my childhood over and over again". Specifically, the legend of Zelda games. Christmas of 2006 I lost her for three days as she played straight through Twilight Princess to completion. I had never before seen her dedicated to a game this much in our lives so I was excited to try and give her new Zelda experiences. I was never a kid that had a Nintendo system when I was younger, and as an adult I only bought a Wii for my wife, but I had heard of a few Zelda games here and there that I was pretty sure she would fall in love with. So I went out one day a few weeks ago on the hunt for all of the Zelda games that I could come across for all platforms. I got a DSi XL (Cause its hella cheap right now), and was actually able to find Windwaker, Spirit Tracks, and got Ocarina of time for the virtual Console. The problem that I ran into with getting all excited and going out and getting all of these games it that she doesn't like the different off shoot Zelda formula games, and was only excited about playing the games that were basically exactly like Ocarina of Time. Thus, my trek was deemed a failure because while trying to get her into other kinds of Zelda games, (And hopefully eventually some other kinds of games) turns out that she only wants to play what she wants to play. She did however completely enjoy watching me play both Okami, and Darksiders twice. So........maybe there is hope for this. Wish me luck.
