The other day we recorded an episode of snexploration squad. It was about A Legend of Zelda: Link to the Past. And somewhere near the end I asked the most important question in the history of podcasts:
What name do you name your Link?
I take naming things very seriously*. It brings me much pleasure. There is absolutely no way I would have played hundreds of hours of Pokemons if they didn’t let you name your friends. But my Link is always named Link. I used that name in the first game and I will continue using it until the last one (I am planning on outliving Nintendo).
When Ocarinas of Time came out my sister played it (her first Zelda) and her Link was named “Ratboy”. This was very upsetting, seeing all these elf children and organ grinders and such bullying poor Ratboy. I did not like watching her play the game. I considered that a hateful act.
Thankfully none of my podcast pals chose names as tasteless as Ratboy, and I felt we all grew closer after that exchange.
So let’s give it a shot, here, on select button. Let’s all share our Zelda names, and grow closer, tonight.
*Except for my account name on here, and on Discord. I didn’t think I’d ever post, or chat, so I just chose something that wouldn’t attract attention. This was clearly a mistake. It’s impossible for me to be anonymous. I’m eyecatch personified. I’ve learned my lesson and I’ll be haunted by these dumb names until the day I log off.
