With The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess HD a mere two weeks away, it’s about that time for some nostalgic reminiscing. The original GameCube-Wii title is not only my favorite video game, but also a key source of creative inspiration. I rarely cite a piece of media and say “that thing changed my life,” but Link and Midna’s adventure — both directly and indirectly — has made a tremendously lasting effect. From the fond memories I have with the game itself to the friends I’ve made through sites such as WMB, no other piece of entertainment comes close in terms of personal impact.
Considering the original purpose of this site, it’s clear that other people feel similarly. Before we re-experience the Hero of Twilight’s journey, let’s express why we fell in love with this game in the first place.
Through just about any creative means — writing, music, hand art, graphic art, etc. — let us know what Twilight Princess means to you. Feel free to write a piece — similar to WMB’s Testimonals — in which you discuss your experience with the game as a whole. Share a drawing or painting of King Bulbin. Build a Wolf Link papercraft — whatever sounds like the most fun to you.
Assuming we get a substantial number of submissions, we’ll collect them all on February 29 and present them on the front page. On top of that, we’ll pick one person among the group and send them a copy of Twilight Princess HD. Hit the jump for some of the specific details.
