Post Why were we the only ones?
Really... I always wonder this, why was I always the weird one who was obsessed with ONE singular character in a now-obsolete video game?

Then I found you guys, and I ask you that question again: Why do we like Midna?

Why doesn't everyone else in the world like Midna as much as we do? I know over a dozen people online who have played TP and like it, but don't really see Midna as more than a helper of Link, such as annoying Navi or bitchy Tatl. Soo... Why us? Do we have a weird gene or some crap that makes us like Midna more than others?

Do we like her because of her much darker tone than all of the other helpers in LoZ? Are we just a bunch of freaks who have no life!?

That's a lot of questions, but hopefully you guys can answer some for me :3

Thanks
:rock: Raven :rock:

Honestly it just boils down to individual perception. Twilight Princess has much more of a story than most Zelda games and it just so happens that we took every single plot-related trait we could. Even though TP's story and characters aren't too special, it's still really close to Majora's Mask. So yeah, it's just personal opinion and nothing more.

Well the thing is, why did MIDNA in particular touch me/us in this way? My personality and whatnot is NOTHING like hers, (At least back then :lol: ) and now every time I hear her theme or Desperate Hour on Radio Hyrule, I literally burst out crying and my friends are like wtf ralks... <--- True dat

i liked the character. im very fond of the "semi-tragic hero". they dont die, but you probably wont ever be able to see them again. im into feely things, and i enjoy crying for some reason. im a very strange person

I really thought back in the day I might have been the only one who loved her so deeply. Then I came across Midna Fan Forum and realized there were a lot more people that loved her just as much as I did. I think we like her because she has one of the most amazing personalities out of all the characters in the entire Zelda series.

Fun fact: I never played TP. I watched my first LP of it around July 15th. Finished it ~July 19th. I was too obsessed with Midna by then (startling noise on Wolf Link, her personality, appearance), that I needed more. I joined WMB July 20th, an hour past midnight after Zeldapedia and images and whatnot. Now, she dominates my thoughts, practically hourly, and thankfully so.
Because of Midna, I now actually like a kind of music.
Because of Midna, I finally have something to look forward to.
Because of Midna, I don't see life as dull as it has been for the past few years.
Because of Midna, I no longer await death.

Because she saves lives. :')

But new good things always have an opportunity to spring up. Where there was WMB, before it truly found its end, a few members moved to a new site, created by our own. DnDarknuts, a Zelda-based roleplay site.

I'm with you, KXR.

I would either be dead or in an insane asylum if it weren't for Midna. I'm still pretty crazy x3
You NEED to play TP.

That pretty much sums everything.

I have a tendency to love characters who die or that something sad happens like Midna's case. I'm not sure If I should hate myself for that.

I found out some editors of a pretty popular game magazine in our country like midna alot too. This month they published the issue n° 250 and with it gave 250 reasons why people love games and gaming in general. One of the reasons was something about well-written characters and next to it as an example, Midna, and that alot of the editors loved/liked her (story).

This site definitely has a niche audience -- no denying that. However, we're not as much of a "fringe element" as we may appear sometimes. Aside from the main trio of Link, Zelda and Ganon, Midna is arguably the most celebrated character of the series. You know, even when looking outside of our insular little circle. Dozens of gaming publications have praised her as, like, one of the most awesome things to happen to the series. See for yourself!
