Now Playing:Lake Floria Theme-Skyward Sword

Strike to go back in time.

Let's talk about this. Do you think there is life below the surface? There has to be, look around, we can't be the only ones, can we?

Playing this game was like putting bandages all over my soul as a child. When i wasnt playing, i would rip my skin off of my fingers, my hair out from the back of my head, and be anxious all the time... sitting down with this game was like going to heaven. it was my safe space as a child, and it still is a big one now.

Seeing this box gives me the jitters. I get so excited my stomach feels like mcdonalds sprite!! my mom fought a lady at costco for it. it was the last one in the store, the month after the game came out. on christmas of 2011, when i was 9, i opened the glossy christmas wrapping paper, and saw the golden, beautiful cover in my OWN hands.

This little...well huge book, was paried with the game. it was one of the coolest experiences ever, seeing the way a game was made while playing trhough it at the same time.

Now, Looking back...why is this game so amazing to me? Well, simply, i think its the perfect orgin story to the franchise, which it is (if you dont remember the timeline well). When you think of the epic adventure of a young child that has no idea that they are a hero, you can apply that to other zelda games. However, they had destiny at their side, it was bound to happen to them all. When you see Sky (SS Link, as all call him here) you see a boy with no prior knowledge of any hero. hes never seen people imitate a hero, no sword from the stone things have come into his life. It was the first thing that his life held that was his destiny, that started the entire franchise.

in 2015, at the age of 12, one of the best days of my life happened. on my 13th birthday, my mom brought me to the 25th anniversary symphony of the goddess. It was one of the most amazing things, to hear new music from Breath of the Wild, and hear all the beautiful things from one of my favorite games brought tears to my little eyes. all my insecurites went away, i felt like i was on top of the world, me and my mom got a break from our hard lives; for a few hours, we were careless.

The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword is a 2011 action-adventure game developed and published by Nintendo for the Wii. A high-definition remaster of the game, The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD, was co-developed by Tantalus Media and released for the Nintendo Switch in July 2021. The designs, the story, the music, and the characters are very capitivating, and make me the happiest i can be.
