For what it's worth, out of all the stick figure sketch cards I've done, this is one of my very favorites. *tear*
I've never been a huge Zelda-head. I never completed the first game. I was more miserable at the second game, the strange side-scroller The Adventure of Link. Never finished Ocarina of Time, never played Majora's Mask...new-gen stuff is out of my grasp console-wise. I did, however, really dig (and finish-GASP) The Wind Waker, which caused all sorts of nerd rage when the game's whimsical art style was revealed.
I haven't played anything Zelda-y in years, but this Birthday has got me all a-jonesin' to. Link is a gen-u-ine video game icon, and I'll be damned if the original theme song doesn't float through my head once in a while. It's ingrained, for better or for worse.
Anyway, if you care at all, Kotaku.com is celebrating Zelda all week long. If you don't care at all, then I bid you good day. I SAID GOOD DAY.
