I saved Hyrule. . .

tp_screen039.jpg

I'm proud to announce that it only took me a ridiculously long 67 hours of gameplay, but the Kingdom of Hyrule is safe from the powers of the Dark Lord Gannon. It was an epic battle to the finish earlier today, which I have admit pushed and confused me.

I have to say, this is the best video game I have every played. Without a doubt. If you like games at all, you owe it to yourself to pick this up and play it. The story is top-notch, you care about the characters, the art direction amazing, the music inspiring, the gameplay astonishing. Seriously, there are parts of this game, many parts, where you just want other people to be around, because you want other people to share in just how awesome this is. And I was lucky, because my 7 year old daughter and 4 year old son were as obsessed with it as I was, and were right with me every second of the quest. Watching and cheering (and pushing me to check the internet if it took me longer then 15 minutes to figure out what to do next. . . which I didn't do!)

Of the 5 people who waited overnight for the Nintendo Wii, I am the 3rd to beat it. Luke "the video game god" Ziegenhorn beat it in like 34 hours and about 3 weeks ago, maybe even longer. Joe "hurt his foot and had lots of free time" Kempista finished in I think around 45 hours and a week ago. I wandered around and took my time because I didn't want this game to end. The only reason I beat it today instead of looking for more hearts and shiny bugs and poe souls was because the kids pushed me to go ahead and save the world and stop wasting time.

That's funny! I look forward to watching my own Jason defeat the evil lord Gannon (or, as I like to call him "Rich Gannon") to free the good people of Hyrule, and the lovely Princess Zelda, who oddly enough, comes into every Legend of Zelda plot-line...
