So I’m a day late with a Valentine’s Day post. You try posting while having to dodge skidding taxis in the slushy streets of New York City. Such is my love for Infendo that I took a break from some work-related conference coverage and found this gem on the top Nintendo romances of all time. No Zelda though. Here’s why:
“Link and Zelda are the football player and cheerleader of the videogame world: they’re the couple that’s shoved into the spotlight, celebrated by all, made prom king and prom queen, and eventually have awkward sex in a by-the-hour motel room while the football player’s buddy stands outside drunk singing the one line he knows to Rick James’ Superfreak. (The line is “Superfreak”) But there is no passion there. They date because everyone expects them to date, and because if they didn’t date, everyone in school would be, like, ohmigod.”
I agree. Especially in this latest installment. Midna beats Zelda out for the ten spot, and for the rest you’ll have hit the link.
