Poll: Will you lick Zelda? (351 votes)

As soon as I take it out of the box 50%
No effing way 50%

So with the amount of coverage the mouth feel for the Switch cartridges is getting, are you going to be able to resist sticking the thing in your mouth just to see how awful it actually is?

I'm buying the Wii U version, I'm sure it's fine. I won't be finding out firsthand.

Mouth feel is #1 importance to me. Idk what's wrong with the rest of you heathens. What's the point of vidya games if they don't even taste good?

Have you ever licked a Wii U disc?

I voted for "No effing way" but a part of me knows that, given enough time with nothing to do, it's inevitable that I just have to know.

I assume the switch will be installing Firmware as soon as I launch it, so I'll need to do something.

I'll wait for Griffin McElroy's expert opinion before I put any switch cartridges in my mouth.

I bet the WiiU disk, with its smooth edges, would make for great licking material

Also this:

You will have bought it. Meaning it is your property. This joke is taking a turn for the worse.

That seems ill-advised. Also, for those who download, how do you lick?

I'm more interested in how the game plays than how it tastes, but to answer your question..... maybe?

Me too, but it is going to be one of the first things I do when I get my hands on a cartridge.

No, not into cracking open my Wii U after I download BotW to slobber all over it.

They should make different games taste like different bad things related to the game kinda like Harry Potter jelly beans. Zelda could taste like Epona's horseturd for instance.

You can either lick and know, or always wonder what it would be like. I know what i would do.

I also hope that licking the cartridge becomes the new 'blow on the cartridge' . I can see some youtubers making clips where they ' magically fix' their cartridges by licking it. Hope it catches on :)

The more i think about it, the more i wonder which taste is both harmless and disgusting to 99% of the people.

Since it's mostly to prevent kids from putting it in their mouth, i assume it's a bitter or sour taste? But you have people that love those flavours.

Why is this a thing? There's so much damn chatter about putting this game in people's mouth. Fahey over at Kotaku just did a bit about it. What am I missing? To be fair I'm not a Zelda fan. I have nothing against Zelda just never really played any of them. Is there some weird Zelda lore that has made salivating on a copy of Zelda a thing?
