A story that shows its effect on NPCs

June 1, 2010

One of the big complaints about Twilight Princess was how none of the world of Hyrule´s citizens seemed to care about what was going on. That´s something that mustn´t happen again.

Ocarina of did this best, even if it was rather simple. Seven years pass, and the world HAS reacted to its turn for the worse. Hylian citizens fled to Kakariko, the farm was overtaken by that terrible guy, and Hyrule city was now ruled by zombies. The Zora-realm was frozen, the Gorons lived in fear of Volvagia and even Kokiri forest wasn´t save anymore. You really could feel and see the changes. The same has to happen in Zelda Wii, though it´d be nice if it could be done more smoothly, meaning, stuff happens, people start to wonder, more stuff happens, some people wonder more than others, until finally obvious stuff happens and people realize what´s going on. Whatever, just make sure the story that is most times about saving the world is not exclusive to Link only.
