Ally (and her sister) have been playing “Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD”
I, if this hasn’t been fully explored yet, am not a gamer. This isn’t because I don’t want to be but mainly due to what I lack overall in hand to eye coordination when it comes to using the controllers. I am a grade A button smasher and typically just hope that what I’m trying to accomplish will work. That or I hide if it’s Super Smash Bros. This has made my little sisters foray into the gaming world, so to speak, all the more entertaining to watch because not only is she, at eight, already better at video games then I will ever be but she also cares more. We share a competitive spirit and every new game she’s been introduced to I’ve watched on as she’s yelled a little at said game, thrown her arms up in agitation (as I’m sure most gamers are used to) and watched as finally she gets the hang of it and can kick my ass with whatever game it is. For her eighth birthday our very own video game editor (Mr. Evan Griffin) suggested “Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD” promising a relatively small learning curve.
Alas, it was tougher than I thought it would be and my 8-year old sister has turned into a teenager now whenever she plays the game.
I’m sure she will get the hang of it soon (in part due to Evan’s assurance that he will answer any and all questions that she has. I’m thinking of giving her his personal email.)
From my point of view as a self-proclaimed newbie, the visuals are a lot of fun, incorporating the sleeker look of newer games while also utilizing a classic, rough around the edges aesthetic-every character kind of looks like they were built out of blocks, don’t they? – Allyson Johnson
