Aug 13 2008ZOMG! A Legend Of Zelda Philosophy Book


So, there's a Legend of Zelda philosophy book coming out sometime in the near future. I may learn to read yet!

With both young and adult gamers as loyal fans, The Legend of Zelda is one of the most beloved video game series ever created. The contributors to this volume consider the following questions and more: What is the nature of the gamer's connection to Link? Does Link have a will, or do gamers project their wills onto him? How does the gamer experience the game? Do the rules of logic apply in the game world? How is space created and distributed in Hyrule (the fictional land in which the game takes place)? How does time function? Is Zelda art? Can Hyrule be seen as an ideal society? Can the game be enjoyable without winning? The Legend of Zelda and Philosophy not only appeals to Zelda fans and philosophers but also puts video games on the philosophical map as a serious area of study.

This book might actually be alright, I hope they teach it in college. Because the required class I had to take sucked. Well, except for the girl that sat in front of me. Man, she had a pair of Descartes on her that would've....what? I already used that joke? Well shit. Okay, then philosophize on this for a minute: If a tree falls in Hyrule and I'm busy banging Zelda, is it true she can still get pregnant even though I was doing it from behind? She's already a week late and I'm getting nervous.

Thanks to Richard, who knows that all things Zelda make my heart go pitter-patter.

Sounds interesting.

And by interesting, I mean impregnating Zelda, not so much the book.

If she's pregnant and you were entering through the back door, then it's probably not yours... There goes the throne...

Bang Zelda, Kill Link.

They release of lot of "the psychology behind [insert entertainment media here]" books, and some of them are actually pretty good, but this one sounds ridiculous. They could have taken this in a different direction and it would have been a decent read. Oh well.

Was it her first time? Because everyone knows you can't get pregnant the first time. . .

To those of you reading this who are stupid (I know there are a couple of you out there)--THAT IS A JOKE. PLEASE use birth control wisely (or just don't procreate at all if you don't know how it works).

Philosophy of Zelda:

1.) Save the Princess.

2.) Defeat Gannon.


Bang Zelda, save the world?

You are obviously wrong, first you defeat Gannon then you save Zelda. Then you masturbate thinking of her and cry till you fall asleep... sob sob

I wrote an essay for this about the triforce and what it has to do with dynamic systems theory and the games we all play. Give it a try, you might like it.

edit: "you masturbate while using your own tears as sweet, sweet lubricant, then go to sleep."

el basto is righ but instead of jerking to her memory I F*** HER ALL NIGHT AND THE NIGHT AFTER TO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! and it goes on like that FOREVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

for our final project in grade 11 philosophy, my friend and i did ours on the philosophy of Zelda.
it was most definitely the best one, no contest.

No cross, no crown.
