For this project, I have decided to start playing Zelda: Link’s Awakening on the Nintendo Switch. I knew that going into this assignment that there was going to be many challenges along the way. The two that I knew going in for sure was that I had no clue how to work a Switch and I had a record of being very bad at video games. Still, I went in with an open mind. I was able to figure out how to navigate the Switch pretty easily and soon began enjoying the game. The game begins with you playing as Link, the main protagonist of the Legend of Zelda series. You wake up on a beach and are told that your presence has brought monsters and you cannot leave the island until you free the villagers. I spent a lot of time slicing plants with my sword in order to find gems that I could trade in for extra lives because I knew that I was going to need them. I found the game to be full of puzzles. You need to have hand eye coordination with the controls in order to navigate around the world. There was one particular puzzle that had you rearrange rocks to get through a maze that probably cost me 20 minuets of my life that I will never get back. That’s also not counting the many times I died meeting the monsters that was in the maze with me. I had to physically step away from the game after 45 minuets to do other homework because I knew that if I was not careful, I would spend all night on the Switch. I can just tell that this game is going to be full of puzzles that are going to make you think and situations that call for problem solving. I cannot wait to play again.
