The Legend of Zelda series has always been a favorite of mine. The original game eluded me until it was released as a retro game on the Wii’s Virtual Console. I played a rental copy from the local video store in the dark ages, but I was never able to get a copy of my own and the two day rental was not enough time to complete it. Thankfully, Santa brought me the gold cartridge of Zelda II: The Adventure of Link in 1988 and I was hooked. Since then, The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past and Ocarina of Time have become two of my favorite games of all time. While I love the stories, the puzzles, the dungeons, and the timeline that sort of makes sense if you don’t think too hard – it’s the dialogue between Link and the non-playable characters or the surrounding environment that really sets it apart from other favorites. I think the dialogue in earlier games was unintentionally humorous because of translations or poor writing, but the later games must know they’re funny.
I’m still very early into Breath of the Wild so I’m sure I’ll encounter more funny dialogue during the journey, but here are a few captures so far. Breath of the Wild is continuing the tradition and it’s an amazing game.
