wait, rated R? i saw the pictures and im twelve. they look pretty.
but i'd prefer the cartoon ones
@Bouffalant Herdier I know they just HAVE to feel scared at some point or another in the story. They can't just watch through the whole game this stoicly! Lol. I have to agree with you, I had a great time playing Skyward Sword. It made me feel happy even in the face of danger, because the sceneries where all so lively and colorful. Also, the general mood setting is very tranquil, so that helped. I love games like that :) I'm kind of doing Majora's Mask as proof to myself that I can do it, but the time limit and general atmosphere makes me feel so anxious! XD
@33Whimsicott33 Yeah, this crossed my mind. I can't help wondering if it would've made a difference; I suppose it would have, though. But I'm a really big sister (as in, I'm much older than them xD), so I would have felt guilty of not warning them, lol. I will probably try to say nothing in another creepy part and see what happens! What did you do to your siblings? LOL that's an awesome plan. I imagine you going like "Keep your eyes glued to the skin!! This is the best part ever!!!" and suddenly you zoom in the Elegy of Emptiness' face.
It's 'cause you warned them and raised their expectations. You should've lured your young ones in and told them they were going to see something fascinating. Like how I did with mine.
Give it time, I say. I was 10 when I played Ocarina of Time for the first time, and it didn't scare me at all to begin with; I even remember meeting the ReDeads in the Royal Family Tomb without flinching. It was when I traveled to the future and saw the terrible state of Ganondorf's Hyrule that made the fear set in. I played through the Master Quest version last year, but I had to leave the sound off the entire time. That's how much the game gets to me.
I'm so glad Skyward Sword isn't particularly terrifying. As much as I love Ocarina of Time and Majora's Mask, I like to feel relaxed when playing video games.
@Hide in Plain Sight You are absolutely right. My sisters have probably seen more scary than I will ever see in my lifetime XD; I guess back in the day, we didn't really expect a game could be as unsettling. Sad to admit this, but it's even really cool that my sisters aren't scared - that way they'll keep me company through the creepier parts of the game XD; hehe
I think it's because we remember how creepy those scenes were for us when we were kids (I played MM for the first time at 10 years old, and yes the Happy Mask Salesman was creepy as shit). And I think part of the reason for this is that we had never seen things like that in a video game before (simply because the technology wasn't around).
But kids these days have grown up with far more in terms of technology and far more intense gaming experiences. They're used to it. We weren't when we were their age.
@Serperiority Gracias :D
@MizuTaipu I agree, Majora's is simply a classic, can't be beat. But in my case, I tend to like games that are a bit lighter, more cheerful. MM was very creepy and although it's an awesome game, I could never bring myself to beat it because of how scared I was xD To prove my point, I'm currently in the Ancient Cistern, and I'm so freaking scared of progressing because I know there are Cursed Bokoblins! :( arrghh. I don't like cursed/creepy stuff... And about the ending, I'm sure I will! :3 I can't wait to see how it ends! Haha. It's very hard to try not to spoil myself... but I must resist xD
Skyward Sword is pretty good. It's not the best of the series so far (which is IMO Majora's Mask) it's just average. I liked the ending though and I'm pretty sure you will like it too.
Nice mi amiga!
@Ghetsis-Dennis - Oh, I had a lot of trouble deciding too! Her ceremonial Skyloft outfit is so pretty as well! XD
I'm not sure which outfit is better for Zelda in Skyward Sword: her Skyloft outfit or the outfit you're using as your avi and sig.
@Jabberwocky oh, I am a big Japanese fashion fan, so of course I'll be going to Shibuya ^^ I'll be visiting Tokyo, Hakone, Kyoto and Tokyo Disneyland :D
@Hypersonic well, it's half luck and half sheer effort! xD
Ah, I see. I was just thinking of Spanish-speaking countries that aren't far away. But yeah, the US would be a good choice if your English is good.
Aw man, you're so lucky. :<
What area of Japan are you visiting? If it's Tokyo, then Shibuya is definitely worth a look.
@Maybe dead-chan thank you so much! X3
@RaccoonGoon Of course. I took the necessary precautions: I am training myself in the way of samurai before I go xD
@Jabber Claus I will! Thank you for the tip :P
@Ghetsis-Dennis well, I don't know Japanese that well so xD; I don't think it's vital to know the language of where you are going. Of course, it'll help, but there's always the globally-understood gesture language! :D
Too bad I may never visit a foreign country because I only know English.
I visited Tokyo and the Mt. Fuji area in March. It's a beautiful country. Visit some temples and shrines; they're very nifty.
Always have a spare katana on you at al times.
Congrats! That's so awesome!
